Most helicopter tours take off from the edge of the 15th arrondissement, on Rue Henri Farman, on the other side of the Boulevard Périphérique close to the Seine River. It can be reached by metro (10 minutes of walking) or directly by taxi or car.

HeliFirst is the helicopter tour I experienced. The team was extremely professional and welcoming. We had an issue with our helicopter the first time around, so we ended up drinking champagne and eating macarons before coming back a second time and succeeding. The tour was very smooth and although I was nervous to fly in a helicopter the first time, it went really well!
Aero Affaires is more of a charter service than a tour agency, but they can offer a more customized helicopter solution if that’s what you’re after. You can reach hard-to-get-to destinations by helicopter such as ski resorts, stadiums, hotels, chateaux, and more.
