The tour was absolutely beautiful and the pilots were very well informed about the city and gave a knowledgeable tour of New Orleans. It rained a few hours before so we didn’t get to see the sunset completely bc but the sky still looked amazing. The only thing I would say is that it seemed a little short we did get the 30 minute tour but it was more like 18-20 minutes. The ride didn’t feel rushed and I feel the pilots did all they could just wished I could get a little more bang for the Buck. The memories were still worth it though!


Unforgettable experience! Had a great time exploring the city from a different view. Our tour guide (Lauren) was excellent! She was fun, a great pilot and had a lot of interesting facts to share. Highly recommend the night time flight especially when setup around sunset. We got to see the city during daylight, sunset and night time.


Truly an amazing experience! Our pilot Lauren was very informative and she did such a great job making us feel comfortable. 10/10 recommend for sure!


I really enjoyed our guide pointing out and giving the background information of the specific landmarks. I love how comforting he was. I would definitely recommend this experience to my family and friends.


The ride was awesome the pilot was very nice and friendly he explain everything in details. He made us feel very comfortable while taking off and landing. Believe me it was my husband first time flying and he wants to do it again!

What an amazing experience! This company provided us with exceptional first class service and hospitality. The weather wasn’t looking great for our trip, however, they made sure to accommodate us and our schedule, and fit us in when there was a break in the clouds and the flight was outstanding. our pilot made us feel like family and provided an incredible tour of the city at night, the city lights were surreal! Thank you to New Orleans Aerial Tours for an awesome night of adventure!

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our night-time flight tour of the city for her birthday. Our pilot, Gaiten Howard was enthusiastic, a good conversationalist and explained everything about the ride that we should know or had questions about. Smooth flight on a 4 seat plane with great views of New Orleans. Also got the champagne and chocolate, which was nice to have while flying. Highly recommend.


It was our first time ever in a plane and we did it on our anniversary. It was a great experience. We had an awesome pilot Colin. Would definitely recommend him and also experiencing this tour itself.
