Absolutely the highlight of my trip to Dubai!! I did this the first day I was there. Falcon tours did a great job coordinating and even sent a driver to pick me up and drop me off at the Atlantis where I was staying. There was a little mix up in the time of my flight, but they helped to get it resolved and I was on a 6-seater with 2 others and the pilot. He was very knowledgeable of the area from the air and actually explained every building, island, and empty hole (“this will be the new MGM hotel”). I took a 15 min ride and would HIGHLY suggest it for anyone seeing Dubai for the first time. Great views and photo opps from the air!

We were very close because we were stuck in a traffic jam, but that wasn't a problem. Everything was explained to us directly and we went into the helicopter ... The captain was very friendly and really told us everything while we were flying. I would give 10 out of 5 stars! It was awesome, many thanks to the team!

I reserved for 11 am slot but didn’t get on the ride until 11:30 - I was not happy as I made back to back schedule for other events. The staff apologized and offered pictures and video for free. While on the ride, It was hard to hear the captain on the certain landmarks.
