I have never been in a plane, and the helicopter ride was the first time I've ever flown and they made me feel at ease and our pilot Forest was awesome.

We had a great day and flight; and Forest was so much fun. Totally different feeling than a plan (which I enjoy jumping out of) -- this was just beautiful! Thanks for a wonderful experience.

We went on the 20-min island tour yesterday with Bird's Eye View Helicopters. The experience was totally awesome! I was nervous before the tour, since I'm terrified of flying and never been on the helicopter before. However, the experience has completely exceeded my exceptions! Our pilot was super experienced and confident. During the tour, he pointed out many attractions and sightseeing spots for us. He also answered all of our questions and he's very knowledgeable. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking!! You wouldn't be able to see all of it if on the ground.  The helicopter ride itself was very smooth and comfortable as well, didn't experience any turbulence. Overall, I would totally do it again next time!  Highly highly recommend!! More...

I loved our helicopter ride. Our pilot Forrest was very knowledgeable and funny. The views were breathtaking. The woman who worked at the front desk was also very sweet, named Shannen. I would recommend this experience to anyone. As someone who has anxiety flying the staff made me feel comfortable and relaxed and more excited than anxious for our flight. Thanks everyone we will be back for one of your other tours. More...

This was a first for me and my boyfriend yesterday. It was actually a gift I had given him two years ago for his 40th, but with kids sports schedules and life, we just didn’t get to going until yesterday. And let me tell you I wish we knew how amazing it would be. We would’ve been a million times in the past 2 years!! It was incredible. It’s a simple process. It’s affordable. Our pilot was so nice and educating, thank you Forrest. The ride was spectacular and fun!! It truly was a perfect gift. So if you have someone’s birthday, wedding, engagement, anniversary, any special occasion or just because....this is a MUST! Thank you Newport Helicopter tours for the opportunity and opening our eyes to the beauty of our backyard. �� More...

Opted for the Newport Mansion tour this past weekend and was blown away by how much more you can see from the air in a helicopter (trust me, I've flown the coastline in an airplane and couldn't believe the difference)! It was a fantastic ride with Forrest: a friendly, skilled pilot who loves the area and his vocation. Family owned and operated. A MUST for both tourists and residents (and pilots-in-training!) alike!

The flight was great, we had overcast skies and a couple showers but our great pilot Forrest kept us at an altitude that let us still view everything and was also a great tour guide. The staff at the terminal was great, check-in was very easy. We had a package deal with the Gansett harbor cruise so they called over to Gansett to confirm that our cruise was still a go because of the weather. Overall great experience and we will definitely be back for another flight. Definitely worth the money!! Thanks again folks!! More...

Wonderful way to see Newport.My honey thought outside the box and planned a surprise helicopter ride for me. Bird's Eye View offers packages that included Newport Vineyard tasting and tour tickets. This made for a WONDERFUL day in Newport.When you arrive at the airport, you are asked to watch a small safety video and are walked outside to the runway area. We were given instructions about entering and exiting the chopper and use of the headsets once inside. They offer different tour which vary in sites and duration. We did the island tour which was the longest at about 20 minutes. This was perfect and just enough time to enjoy this experience.Our pilot Jeff was experienced and kind. We did point out some of the key things of interest along our flight. We appreciated those and thought that maybe he could have incorporated a few more. Overall, would recommend this to anyone looking for an out of the box day adventure in Newport! Thank you Bird's Eye View! More...

We fly high, no lie and you know this!This was such an amazing experience! I took my friend here for her birthday and she loved it as well. We did the mansion tour so we got to see the mansions of Newport. The reason why I am giving this place 4 star is that I wish the ride was longer! It was probably for a good 10-12 minutes, but it's worth it if you purchase the groupon deal. More...

My 83 year old dad wanted to visited boston..... we decided to  include Newport ri as we drove to cape cod and boston.  Booked this trip for my dad and husband to see the mansions and lighthouses.  My sister and I chose to walk the cliff walk as we get extremely motion sick.  My dad who is in good shape would have enjoyed the cliff walk... but thoroughly enjoyed to helicopter ride..... he could see everything without walking in the cold.  We were in ri on a rainy sept day and it was cold for him.  However birds eye cancelled our trip then did everything they could to get us booked the next day if weather held.  It did.   my father said it was a trip of lifetime. My father does not have many trips left I am so glad he was able to complete this one.   thanks so much birdeyes for making this a excellent experience.  ( and my husband said  my sister and I could have made the trip.... there is min motion sickeness.    Thanks so much to birdseye.   My dad said this was his favorite of our 2 week trip (which included boston red sox tickets!!.   you  really showed book this trip, worth every penny.

For my daughter, only the best applies and the folks at Birds Eye could not have done a better job. I wholeheartedly recommend Birds Eye Helicopters! More...

Thanks to Stephen Oliveira, one of Walter's former students, Walter Wisniewski, Medevac Pilot during the Vietnam War, was able to go up in a helicopter for the first time since 1968 in Viet Nam. He said that when he was up in the air, he felt like he belonged there. He said it felt like home. Thanks for making a Vietnam Veteran's Day! More...

Yesterday my mom and I did the Bird's Eye View Helicopter Island tour. Both of us could not have been more impressed. We used the shuttle service which was very convenient. The staff was fantastic and so personable. The views were absolutely breathtaking. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone of all ages. We are looking forward to doing it again in the near future!!! Thanks again for the amazing experience :) More...

Went to Newport for the afternoon with my boyfriend and wanted to do something we've both never done before. Found Bird's Eye View Helicopters and booked a flight, it was absolutely amazing!! The woman who booked our trip was very helpful, cheerful and accommodating. Our pilot answered any questions, showed us landmarks, and joked around with us. Such a memorable experience we will never forget!! Thank you!! More...

My mom and I visited Newport, RI for my 23rd birthday and a simple two-day trip. We hunted for something that would close out our short vacation with a bang. We saw an advertisement for Bird's Eye View Helicopters at a kiosk in town and loved the idea of getting an aerial view of Rhode Island. We chose the Lighthouse Tour and could not be any happier with our experience. The staff was incredibly accommodating for my nervous mother, the sights were awe inspiring and we cannot wait to come back and do it again! Everyone at Bird's Eye View immediately treated us more like family than customers and the pilot provided us with wonderful history about the lighthouses and landmarks of RI. I would recommend this experience to anyone. More...

I proposed to my fiance on Bird's Eye View's Island tour, with their proposal package today. I can personally say that it was the most amazing experience I have ever had, and that I was impressed from booking to the time that I walked out of the airport. I can not wait to see the other tours available, and tell everyone I encounter about the professionalism, and excellence of their performance. Please don't hesitate to call them, and book right away. I have seen Newport for many years that I have lived in the state, and I recommend anyone who enjoys the area as much as I do, see it from the sky. Thanks Jeff, and Kristen for making this day very special! See you on the next tour! More...

My parents and I purchased a Groupon to enjoy the Mansion tour on a brisk spring day.  Jeff, the pilot, is fantastic and you will feel comfortable with him and learn a lot over your quick tour.  He runs this company, where he provides these sorts of tours, as well as also owning an aerial photography business which is pretty cool/interesting.  The Mansion tour is the shortest (12 minutes) but still a great experience and you'll see lots of awesome Newport attractions...the bridge, the mansions, fort adams, ocean drive, downtown, etc.  You'll have your own headset where Jeff will point out attractions, and you can also talk to your other thrill seekers through the headset.  Be sure to bring your camera as the pictures you'll get are incredible!Tip:-You can purchase a DVD (about $25) as an add-on to your trip.  We did not do this but many others did and were happy with their purchase!-This is NOT a scary experience at all so if you are concerned about a fear of heights, etc, do not be!  Perhaps choose to sit in the back seat (one guest sits up front with Jeff and the other two sit in the rear) as you'll be able to enjoy the views but not as easily see the straight down view from the front.-Get there a little early to watch the folks that sky dive at the same property (they have picnic tables outside you can hang out at until the woman picks you up to drive you over to the helicopter in a golf cart!)-Great gift idea for any friend/family who loves Newport/RI!

Great experience. 2nd time in a helicopter and everyone was very nice. Pilot Jeff even allowed us to take photos with him. Time flies (no pun intended) when you're 800 feet in the air. Would definitely come back another time. I noticed there were private planes & people preparing/setting up to sky dive so if youre also looking for a place that can provide those services, they do!

I bought the Groupon for the Mansion Tour. I took my mom out for her birthday and she absolutely loved it. Even though it was supposed to rain and it was cloudy, they still were able to fit us in and told us we would still be able to see the mansions clearly. It was a 10 minute ride and I was able to take great photos. More...

We certainly did experience a "bird's eye view" of the picturesque Newport coastline. Jeff, our knowledgeable pilot, shared many notable facts about the area. He was most willing to field any questions we had as well. A lovely way to spend an afternoon and a great opportunity to enjoy Newport from a different perspective!Looking for a gift idea? This is a perfect gift to give! More...

That was the best tour ever. I have been on many aerial tours, but not quite one with all the right combinations. The helicopter was comfy, the view was spectacular, and the price was super cheap. I would do this again in a heart beat. Bring a good camera with a long lens, you'll want to record this unforgettable experience. More...
