Frequently Asked Questions
Basically, commercial airplane travel is extremely safe. However, helicopters are more dangerous, but not as dangerous as a trip on a personal plane. Some trips like private or personal helicopter rides are much more likely than others to involve a fatal accident.
One of the reasons why helicopter tours are expensive is due to fuel. While helicopter tours are expensive, they are absolutely worth the splurge. If you love aerial views, then we recommend booking a Vietnam heli tour. A helicopter tour is also something you never regret doing.
Every helicopter tour is designed to withstand most common weather occurrences like rain and snow. Nonetheless, extreme weather conditions like hard rain or heavy snow will limit the visibility of pilots and may require the tour to be delayed until the conditions improve.
Do I need to tip a helicopter pilot and how much?
It depends on you. A tip of $10/person to the pilot for a 1-hour flight is often appropriate.
A helicopter tour has never been cheap. It takes a lot of fuel to burn for a helicopter ride. The longer the ride, the more fuel it burns. For example, if it costs $140 for a 20-minute heli tour, adding 10 additional minutes will bring the costs to $210. Helicopter tour operators know that the flights are expensive so they try to make the price affordable to tourists by making the tour duration short.
You had better wear long pants and a long-sleeved shirt, and bring a jacket or sweater when taking part in a helicopter tour. If you are taking a heli tour during the winter, take a coat, scarf and gloves along. Remember to wear comfortable shoes which will not become loose during the trip. Avoid sandals or flip-flops in the summer.
For instance, the 25-minute tour takes off and lands from the water at Tuan Chau Island Marina.
The cost ranges from $102 – $120 depending on the season and includes views of Dau Be Island, Cong Do Island and Bo Hon Island.
