A breathtaking experience, I definitely recommend. The pilot made sure that passengers seated on both sides of the helicopter could see properly and provided us with interesting comments. However, they fly only if they have six passengers (which was our case), but can be frustrating...More

This is the best way to see the cirques. At one point we had some issues where our flight was cancelled, due to the helicopter being needed for emergency medical transportation, which caused some confusion between them and us, as they tried to rebook our...More

I'm a helicopter pilot myself. I understand weather, and have cancelled many flights myself because of it... but the way this lot behave when they have to cancel is to treat paying customers with contempt. We had booked a 45 minute tour around the island,...More

This is a must do activity for any traveller and tourist to explore Reunion island. The scenery is breath taking and ensure you have plenty memory space on your camera. Great way to start your holiday to plan the rest of your stay. Wow

25 min flight (booked 55 min but on arrival told weather too cloudy so had refund). Coped with my nerves, smooth flight and good views. Amazing experience.

We took "The Must", almost 55 minutes. A complete view of the Island, with specacular rides through canyons and over the volcano. The helicopter has 6 seats, but all have a nice view. (For video, the best seat is in front or rear left).
