Make your way to the heliport in the 15th arrondissement of Paris where you are welcome by our friendly staff in French, English, or Chinese. Meet your pilot and begin your helicopter tour. Climb aboard the helicopter for the tour over the city of Paris to Versailles.

Soar over the Seine River to see the Parc des Princes Stadium, Parc de St-Cloud, and Longchamp Racecourse along the perimeter of the Bois de Boulogne. It doesn't take long to reach the city of Versailles, at which point you get a unique vantage point on one of the most famous sights in the entire country—the Palace of Versailles.

Your pilot lands the helicopter at an airfield in Saint-Cyr, where you have a chance to sip a complimentary drink, get some photographs of yourself in front of the helicopter, and chat with your pilot about flying. The stopover outside Versailles is mandatory duration under French law for all helicopter tours from Paris, and there is even a video you can watch about what it takes to fly helicopters while you relax.

The return trip to Paris includes views of Trocadéro, Montparnasse, La Défense and the Eiffel Tower in the distance.

In the case of bad weather, the flight may need to be rescheduled for an alternative date. Please book your flight for one of the first days of your stay in Paris in order to allow for possible rescheduling.

Bad experience and lying description.
Amir_R
, May 2022
We were supposed to get a tour of Versailles palace as mentioned and sold to us. We did not even know as we passed the palace from a far distance. Did not get to see anything there. This was more of a 10 minute ride to a field. This was the worst viator experience ever. The description was a lie.

Hello Your message is false and your rating does not reflect our service. The Palace of Versailles is to be flown over at a safe distance allowing it to be fully seen. If this experience is the worst you've had, we're sorry, know that we pay close attention to the description message and we can't lie about our flight. Our teams are also at your disposal after the flight to discuss it.

Not for Everyone, Not Recommended

It’s not confirmed. It’s confirmed. Then it’s not confirmed in the last minute. It’s not guaranteed it will operate and you won’t know ‘til last minute. Over 24 hours advance notice would be a good time to re-arrange your travel plans, last minute changes is never good.

A very smooth ride but nothing to see at the place. Just have a drink and flew back. A bit boring. Creation of an activity there will be good.

Amazing Helicopter Experience

This was by far the best helicopter experience I have ever had (and there have been many), all the staff at Helipass made my daughter and I feel extremely comfortable and they couldn’t do enough to make our experience an amazing one, the pilot Tibo was also very knowledgeable and an absolute expert at his job, thank you so much to everyone at Helipass.

Robert s
, Jul. 2018
Great views, of course that's expected. The tour itself was pretty bad. It literally felt like a bus ride from one area of town to the other. You would expect some commentary from the pilot as you flew past points of interest, instead it was a completely silent ride. they land at a small airfield next to a freeway in Versailles, take a few pictures with the pilot, walk you into a waiting room - and let you sit for an hour. the refreshing drinks are a bottled water or soda. The pilot had nothing to say, and either sat there in silence or, most of the time, was outside on his cell phone! The group just kind of sat there in uncomfortable silence. bored. once it was finally time to come back, same type of return trip. Zero commentary or guidance, silent ride back. we came back to the helipad, landed, were helped out of the helicopter and immediately to the exit gate and road. The entire group was kind of looking at each other like.. ok is this the end of the tour? there was no thanks, no customer service, literally dropped you on the street without a Thank You, or asking if we enjoyed our trip - nothing! Keep in mind, we had to arrange transportation to get to this tour - there were no taxis, no considerations by the tour company. we had to walk about 6 blocks or so and finally found a cab. i would not recommend this tour to anybody. They have a really really nice helicopter and a really crap business plan! I felt more taken care of during a bus ride than this 500 tour over Paris. Whats sad is they have the foundation for a really great experience but simply did not come close to execution. They could easily make this enjoyable with a little customer service and by creating an actual tour rather than a cab ride to an airstrip, an hour sitting session and then a ride back. so disappointing and wasted so much money on this .

Tomislav L
, Apr. 2017
This tour was big disappointment because helicopter flew nowhere near city center. Yes, it was said that we will have a distant view over Eiffel tower, but that distance was much, much bigger that one could assume on the base of photo that is shown. I do understand that because of security reasons, helicopter can't fly directly over the city center, but this was, as I said, much further than expected. View shown on a photo is not even close to what we actually saw. Even Versailles was very far from us. I think it would be fair to show pictures that give more precise feeling of actual view during the flight. This is a lesson for future: one should always ask for a flight route to be shown on map. I would rather recommend visit to Montparnasse Tower: here you have much better and closer aerial view over Paris, including Eiffel itself for an unlimited time and for much less money.

Melody_B
, Apr. 2017
Don't waste your money. The trip is essentially a 15 minute quick fly-over of the outskirts of Paris - literally 15 seconds over Versailles, and no time anywhere near the Eiffel Tower. After the first 15 minute hop, there is a landing on a grassy landing spot no helipad, and then a one hour do-nothing wait. The pilot and co-pilot who never conducted a guided tour or even pointed out Versailles as we quickly passed over pointed out a refrigerator with Cokes and a few wrapped cookies, by way of hospitality in the dark and ugly waiting room. After an hour of sitting around with our Cokes and nothing else, the pilot came in from his long cigarette break and informed us we were returning to the original helipad. Fifteen minutes later, we landed where we began. I have taken heli rides in Hawaii, New York, Las Vegas, etc., and this was the crudest, shortest and most ridiculous trip I've ever experienced. You can photograph the Eiffel Tower better from the ground - that's how far away and meaningless this trip was. Don't do it.

Not what we expected from the description. The standing around after get to Versailles area was left lacking in all respects. Hot coffee in a soft plastic cup, really??? We expected Champagne from the description, or at least a better vehicle for serving coffee. Would not recommend this, unfortunately. It was to be a special segment of the trip I had planned for my husband. This I will add, he got to sit up front on the return to Paris and that was one saving factor.

Donald_P
, Jan. 2017
Very nice staff, however the trip itself left a lot to be desired. We have taken many city heli tours and I'd have to rate this one at the bottom. Too many flight restrictions in and around Paris. After a 15 minute flight they land you for 1 hour lay over, required by law, at a little 'club house' in the middle of some fields outside of Paris, don't bother.

peter p
, Oct. 2016
The trip should be re-named' Paris Misadventure' The instructions to locate the entrance to the heliport were non-existent so that we were left to calling a gardener to let us into the Site having walked around the perimeter of the heliport TWICE! The flight did not give a decent close up view of the Eiffel Tower nor the Versailles Palace or its Gardens. Yes, you could see them but that was very much in passing rather than any focusing on the things that the trip was sold on. Landing in a windswept field and told that you had to wait an hour before being taken home was not a lot of fun and being given a cup of coffee in a glorified shed just about summed up what a complete and utter rip off the whole expensive trip was. A great disappointment!

Gregory Z
, Sep. 2016
Apart from the staff being very friendly there is little I can recommend with regards to this Helicopter flight experience. The two key areas of disappointment were the fact that Viator advertised this experience as Enjoy a drink and photo opportunities during your 1-hour stopover near Versailles NEAR Versailles was certainly correct! In fact you go to the suburb of Versailles and sit at a helipad for an hour twiddling your thumbs with nothing to do. The drink was the choice of water, coffee, Minute maid or Orangina - not even a glass of wine or beer. The worst misadvertising of the product was however the Eiffel Tower flyover and image in the title of your description. The helicopter in fact did not go close to the Eiffel Tower at all and certainly did not include a flyover - hugely misleading advertising !

Sharon_B
, Sep. 2016
Description of this tour is deceiving. Did not fly anywhere near the Eiffel Tower, got only close to Versailles. The one hour layover at the little airport at the little house was, as I understand a legal requirement, but was still boring. The flight itself was fun, but not what we were hoping for as far as sightseeing.
