Directions: Directions to Toronto City Airport Go to 1 Bathurst Street and board the ferry to the Toronto Island Airport. This boat is a quick 2 minute ride across the Gap, departing every 15 minutes. It is free to ride this ferry in either direction.

This activity will end right where it started.
You can see Toronto from eye level on the street. You can climb the famous CN Tower to see it from above. You can even take a boat around the waterfront. But nowhere else can you experience a view of Toronto from the sky like this one, on board a helicopter flying high above the largest city in Canada.

Begin this Toronto helicopter tour at the Toronto City Center Airport, located downtown, just minutes west of the shoreline from the CN Tower. 

This flight is the showcase flight of downtown Toronto. The tour takes place at 2,000 feet, covering almost nine miles in just a few minutes. Marvel at the sights from this height and the distance that can be traveled without battling with the congested streets and traffic lights below. Discover Toronto by flying over the Canadian National Exhibition grounds in the west to the Don Valley Parkway in the east; and from the Lake Shore in the south up to Bloor Street in the north before heading back downtown to complete this breathtaking aerial adventure.

A ride to remember!

To anyone who has not done it yet, you don't know what you are missing. The city looks even more beautiful from the skies. Customer service was great and the price was right!
First time in Toronto

It was beautiful, and breathtaking. It would have been nicer if it's longer than 7 minutes. Wonderful experience
Made my daughter speechless.

Seeing the buildings from above looking so small, and my daughter being speechless were highlights for the experience for me.
Sky is the limit.

Amazing experience. Wish it was longer! Best views of the city. Words can’t explain the feeling, only through experience will you know!
Definite must-do
, Aug 2021
The helicopter ride was amazing! What made it even more comforting was how clean and organized staff were. They made sure there wasn’t too many people in the waiting room, sanitized everything after someone touched things. The staff were very friendly! The pilot was great at answering our questions, no awkward silence. Seeing the city in a helicopter was definitely an experience to remember!
Spend The Money!

Professional! Wonderful! Friendly! A little tricky to find the hanger, but definitely worth the effort! Seven minutes might not seem like a lot, but trust me (WE) had an absolutely fantastic experience!
Special surprise for my daughter who is going away for school.

Please remember to budget for traffic, parking, walking... Alex was very helpful as we were running a bit late. She helped us get on our tour as quickly as possible. Thanks Alex!

A must do! ! I booked this as a surprise for my husband for our anniversary and it was amazing, couple of downsides was I thought it would only be the 2 of us it was never suggested we would be sharing the flight with someone else but a random stranger was on our flight then I was told I couldn't sit beside my husband in the back and I was put in the front so we didn't get to sit together also the headsets didn't work so there was no communication between anyone, it was great to see Toronto from above though and we got our picture taken beside the helicopter and collected it at the end, there is also a complimentary shuttle to billy bishop airport from the royal York hotel which was really handy

That was an amazing experience...from the beginning to the end The booking was a peace of a cake...the personnel was incredible nice,friendly and highly professional.. the flight is something of indescribable...bird view,almost no turbulence's, the only thing is that is, the flight itself is a short one...I could enjoy this for much longer...but it is worth every penny Thanks Viator and Hely Tours will be back with some guests from Europe in July

Staff were very helpful, super friendly and accommodating. Trip was amazing and super fun! Would do it again! Difficult to find, more signs and directions needed after getting off the ferry. Even just mentioning hanger 6 would have helped.

This was a great tour and the 7min one was enough to give you a great experience as well as the best view of the city. According to them they are the only one allowed to go near the CN tower aside from military aircraft. Highly recommended.

Ground crew couldn't have been more helpful and nice.but the pilot never spoke a word to us except to say that he would not be speaking to us. Now either your website is misleading it says picture is included or the helicopter company scammed us because we had to pay for the picture. I wouldn't recommended the helicopter company to anyone. I have been on helicopter rides before that we 100 better. Unfortunately this was my gift to my Mother for her 70th birthday and it was her first ride on a helicopter. Very unsatisfied.

We were not provided with any information on how to find the actual helicopter office. we ran around the island for almost an hour expecting it to be as simple to find as described, almost missed our booking and had to get someone from the airport to ring them and find out where they were located. The actual flight was exciting cause it was a first experience for the both of us but it definitely was not a long flight for the price paid. we also never received the 'promised' photos as per the description. would not go with this company again.
