    We had the time of our lives in Dubai and this helicopter tour was the crown jewel of our trip. The city is amazing and some of it – like the Palm Island – you only really see from the air. The trip was great, the pilot was very professional and made sure that all passengers saw everything, regardless of where they were sitting. They also took many of photos before and after the flight, so we were able to buy some pictures that we couldn't have made ourselves (e.g. during take-off).
