Helicopter tour prices all depend on where you want to go and how long of a trip you want to have in the helicopter. Some helicopter tours may require a 2 person minimum and can cost anywhere from $144.00 a person for 15 minutes, up to $360.00 a person for 90 minutes again depending on the location of the trip you want to take. Some tours you can take in the daylight and some you can take in early evening to be able to see the lights or the sunset over a particular area. Also the availability will of course depend on the weather of the day you choose to go.
When checking on a tour package, there are a few things that you want to make sure of. One very important item is making sure that the pilots are experienced and FAA certified and check that the company has an insurance policy that is up to date, make sure you check the weather for the particular day that you want to take a tour and that after you book the tour, that you have confirmation that the company received your booking. Make sure the day of the tour you show up at least 30 minutes early, some companies have you watch a video. You should bring your photo id and present your confirmation number of your planned tour. If for some reason you need to cancel then you should give at least 48 hours’ notice. If the weather doesn’t allow you to fly then most companies will reschedule at no charge to you.
