What a great experience! Claudio and his staff made our first time in a helicopter so much fun. The pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely a must do while in Tahoe.
I really enjoyed our trip around Emerald Lake with Claudio. From the moment we arrived Claudio greeted us with a funny, cheerful attitude that carried throughout the experience. I've been to Tahoe a number of times, but the view from the helicopter gave me a newfound appreciation for the Lake's wonderful beauty and vastness. The helicopter ride itself was very smooth and quite different than anything i'd experienced before. I would highly recommend this trip or any by the Reno Tahoe Helicopter Tours to anyone wishing to get a new perspective on the surrounding area or just to try something new. 10/10!
Being from the El Dorado County area, I would have to say that the Emerald Bay tour was definitely one of the most adventurous activities I have done in the area! I have been to South Lake Tahoe so many times, and Reno Tahoe Helicopter Tours was the most memorable, and one of the first activities I recommend to people that are wanting something relaxing but exhilarating at the same time! Our pilot Claudio was hilarious! He made the ride extremely comfortable and made sure we had a great time. My absolute favorite part was just seeing Lake Tahoe from a different point of view. It’s beautiful from the ground; imagine it at an amazing aerial view…Next time I go back I plan on taking the Sunset Tour! I totally suggest taking a this tour because you won’t be disappointed!
I have gone to Lake Tahoe since I was a kid and explored most of what the area has to offer, but this helicopter tour gave me a new perspective that changed Tahoe for me. We took the Emerald Bay tour and it was fantastic from start to finish! Our Pilot, Claudio, was phenomenal and made us feel so welcome. He was very funny and knowledgeable of the area we explored. He took us over 2,000 feet above the lake and the view was breath taking. Seeing all of Lake Tahoe from the sky is a view that can’t be described with words. If you get a chance I highly recommend taking a tour.
Starting off Claudio, the pilot, was a great tour guide, he informed us on all the surrounding mountains so we knew exactly what we were seeing! Additionally, Claudio was one of the most fun & funny tour guides I've ever had. The views were spectacular, we got to see lakes that were high up and tucked away up in the valleys of the mountain range, could an amazing aerial view of Emerald Bay. It is truly breathtaking to see Lake Tahoe from this point of view. I would suggest this to anyone who is looking to discover more hidden beauty in Tahoe! I've gone to Tahoe my whole life and never got to see it like this :) The ride may be short but it is indeed sweet, don't let the duration keep you from doing this tour.. you will feel more than satisfied at the end of it for sure.
My husband and our grand daughter really enjoyed this trip. The guide was very professional in explaining what they were seeing below and our grand daughter (who is only 6) remembered the informational areas the pilot had pointed out. As we went on up and around the lake, she pointed them out to us... We appreciated your kindness and sincerity. Scotty Ulch
it was worth the money. the pilot was friendly and had a great sense of humor which help because I was a bit nervous about flying. we didn't actually get to go over emerald bay due to the wind conditions and that was a really big disappointment for me, but safety first.
The tour was fabulous for the whole family! The pilot was very experienced and knowledgeable about the Lake Tahoe area.
It was awesome. Beautiful view of lake and mountains. ..will definitely be bake for longer tour....thanks guys
Tour was fantastic! The guides were friendly and the ride was a blast. If you are in town then this is a great activity. They have tours for every budget from shoestring to 5 star. Will definitely do another tour next time i'm in Tahoe!
