Expert Opinion

Having lived on the island for more than ten years already, I didn’t think that Bali could still surprise me. I’ve always enjoyed the lands and waters of this tropical paradise, but the aerial perspective of the best of Bali truly astonished me. All our recommended helicopter tours are amazing.

But based on my experiences, as well as those of my friends, there’s one true winner: Balicopter.

In terms of flexibility, overall package, and experience, Balicopter proves itself to be the crème de la crème. Plus, their tours are great for all budgets. So, before you hop off Bali, why not fly over it first? See you up there!
