Before you do so, you have a lot of preliminary work to do before you pick up the phone or fill out an online form. Here are some things you should consider before booking your dream tour.

What Do You Want to See? First things first, what do you want to see while you’re on your tour? Even though you can choose from a variety of online packages from the tour company, we advise that you put together your own point-of-interest list. The reason for this is simple: Although you might find an awesome package, we don’t want you to step off of the helicopter and say, “That was great I only wish we got to see…” You should be completely satisfied with your tour, so make a list of what you’d like to see and then try to find the package that visits said locations. If you can’t find a package with the locations you want, tell the tour company. They might be able to change their normal route in order to accommodate your request. You never know until you ask!

Know Your Party – How large is your party? Don’t know? Well, then it’s not time to book a sightseeing tour! You want to know how many people are going on this fun, high-flying trip before you attempt to book. The tour company will need to know how many are in your group, so that they can find the right size or number of helicopters to accommodate you.

Longevity – You also need to consider how long you want to be up in the air. Remember that the longer you’re tour the more expensive it will be. However, a larger group can more easily split the difference that the extra hour will cost. Decide how long you want the tour to be and communicate your expectations to the tour company. If the package you’re interested in doesn’t match your flight duration preferences, the tour company can do what it can to work with your specific time frame and expectations.

If you book a sightseeing tour prepared, the process will be quick and easy; if you attempt to book without considering any of the following, you could end up extremely disappointed at the end of your tour. Remember, know what you want to see, make sure you have an accurate head count, and know how long you want to be in the air.
