Types of Tours

Drone Flying Experience Tours

Learn to fly safe and unlock your creativity with a Drone Flying Experience Tour or Holiday. For all levels of pilots. Following informative sessions, you will get hands-on 1to1 flight experience in some amazing locations under the watchful eye of an experienced CAA qualified instructor.

Aerial Photography Masterclasses

Improve your flying, photography and filming skills. For destinations where weather conditions may not always be optimal for flying a drone, we offer a tour/workshop which focuses on aerial photography (& videography). However, if due to bad weather we are unable to fly, the itinerary is adaptable to include sessions and masterclasses on landscape photography from a top professional photographer.

In a Day Workshops

Only got one day to spare or have already used up your ‘holiday’ budget? Join one of our ‘In a Day’ drone & aerial photography workshops and we will provide you with the knowledge, the views and the techniques for getting the most from your drone. You will go away not only having met some like-minded people but most importantly having learned something new and exciting about drones. Our one-day workshops are ideal for all levels from beginner to advanced.

Discovery Tours

These tours are for intermediate to experienced pilots looking to join us on an adventure. We are constantly looking to discover new destinations and places to fly a drone. The holiday itineraries can often change but that’s all part of the adventure.

Meticulous Research

The key to every one of our unique drone tours is meticulous research. We have done the homework, painstakingly, ourselves. We have visited the area, often multiple times. Recruited the best local guides. Gained approval from those in authority. Booked the perfect accommodation. Even sniffed out the best restaurant for lunch. And most importantly, found interesting, varied, spectacular, and often hidden or remote, locations from which to fly our drones.

Responsible Travel

Here at Fly&FilmTours, we recognise our obligation to operate our drone and aerial photography tours in a responsible and sustainable way. The following are the key points in our responsible travel philosophy:

  • Small groups have less impact on local communities and environments.
  • We respect the environment and leave no trace or footprint.
  • Where possible we believe in putting money directly into the communities we visit by using locally owned and run accommodation and eating locally produced food.
  • We ensure that local staff receive a fair rate for their services.


Fly&FilmTours offer a wealth of knowledge and years of experience to our featured destinations which is pretty hard to beat.

  • All of our pilots are hugely experienced and have undertaken rigorous drone flight training.
  • Our photographers and guides are all hand-picked experts in their particular fields who have experience and passion.
  • Our office staff are friendly and able to deal with your enquiries – we love a chat so you can call a real person with your questions!

Amazing Support

On every one of our drone tours, there is a maximum of three clients per instructor, and a maximum of six clients in total. So each client gets personal attention and support on every flight. Whether that be help with camera settings; with shot composition; with how to capture the best video; or how to make the best use of the Intelligent Flight Mode options. As well as help with reviewing images and video, and post-production skills in Lightroom and iMovie.
