See one of 17 cities from on high from the cabin of a helicopter, and experience flying through the air in unique style on this City Sightseeing Helicopter Tour for one.

Our guide to Historic City Sightseeing Helicopter Tour

From Perth with its bridges and Scone Palace down to Oxford and the Dreaming Spires, there are 17 cities you can choose from, each with its own great landmarks and features to try and spot. You won’t need to worry about missing any of them, as your experienced pilot will point out the sights as you travel over the surrounding buildings and countryside.

Cameras are welcome, so you can take as many pictures as you like from 1000ft up in the air. As if flying in a helicopter wasn’t jealousy-inducing enough, the pictures you’ll be able to show off afterwards are sure to generate some envious looks.
