    Amazing experience for my 36th birthday alone. Felt very at ease and very welcome by the young lady at the reception desk. I also got to sit in the front next to the pilot, which made the experience even more amazing. Thank you

    The operator canceled this tour because there weren’t enough people to make the flight profitable. They gave us the option of upgrading for an additional cost. We opted not to do the tour.

    Wonderful view

    Great experience, wonderful staff and awesome pilot. If you don’t got a car, a bit tricky to get to the location, a half an hour walk from the domestic part of the Sydney airport , or a taxi is needed. ( easy to get to domestic part by train though)
    Sayed_S, Dec 2023
    Love it kids enjoyed a lot. Staff is well experienced and friendly beautiful views from sky to see lovely Sydney. Hopefully will do it again.

    Worst helicopter tour WASTE MY MONEY
    Andrea_G, Jul 2023
    my parents and I. wanted to have a great experience in helicopter, the helicopter was no private so when I arrived another 2 people was there and the guy said one of you have to be in the middle (no window seat) I said why we are 5 so one in the front and 4 in the back each in the window. He said no sorry is one pilot is learning so 2 pilots today. one of you have to be in the middle (no window) no fair to pay whole price for this seat and also why one of my group and not random? I got dizzy and couldn’t take nice pictures and videos And how this company teach a pilot in a tourist tour Completely disappointed better company next door NO RECOMEND THIS COMPANY

    Hi Andrea We truly appreciate your taking the time to share your feedback with us. We deeply regret that your recent experience on our shared helicopter tour did not meet your expectations, and we sincerely apologise for any discomfort you experienced. At Blue Sky Helicopters, we strive to provide the highest level of service and memorable experiences. Unfortunately, it appears we fell short during your tour. The situation you encountered is certainly not indicative of our usual practice. While we sometimes have a co-pilot present for training purposes, we should have communicated this to you in advance and considered the seating arrangements more thoughtfully. Your feedback has been taken seriously and will be discussed with our team to ensure such situations do not reoccur. We are committed to providing our passengers with optimal viewing opportunities and comfort on our flights, and it's clear we did not live up to that promise in your case. As a gesture of goodwill, we would like to offer you one complimentary window-seat. We hope this would provide an opportunity for us to better serve you and deliver the positive experience we strive for. We understand if you're hesitant to accept given your last experience, but please know that your satisfaction is our priority. Feel free to reach out to us directly if you have any questions or would like to discuss further. Thank you again for your feedback.

    Sydney is So beautiful from the helicopter. I enjoyed so much. I will recomend for my friends to try.
    Response from Host, Jun 2020
    We concur, Sydney is divine from 500-1,000 feet! Thank-you for choosing to fly with us and also take the time to write a review :)
    Fabulous ride!
    JANETTE_G, Feb 2020
    Absolutely amazing experience! From start to finish, we were taken care of. We were asked to watch a short safety video before departure and then escorted to the helicopter and strapped in safely. We then took off, piloted by Jason, and thoroughly enjoyed the flight from start to finish. The only downside is that it was over far too quickly! I wanted to stay in their all day! We chose this instead of climbing the bridge and are so glad we did! Thoroughly recommend Blue Sky!
    Response from Host, Mar 2020
    Hi Janette, Dare we use the pun time flies when you're having fun?(sorry, we're here all week!). It's such a blast to see Sydney from the air, thanks for choosing to fly with us and jot down your lovely review. Please visit us again soon :)
