What you can expect
Make your way to the heliport in the southwestern part of Paris to meet your pilot and begin your helicopter tour. Climb aboard the 6-person Ecureuil helicopter for a 1.5-hour 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 only takes a short 15 minutes of flying to reach the city of Versailles, at which point you’ll 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 not far from the town at an airfield, where you’ll 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 lasts one hour – a 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 takes 10 minutes, and the views include Trocadéro, Montparnasse, La Défense and the beautiful Eiffel Tower itself. 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.
