I'm so glad we did this tour it was wonderful. We opted for the mini limo and it was great that they picked us up at our hotel in Beverly Hills. The driver was really nice and friendly, and a safe driver which is always a plus! Our helicopter tour was right on time which was great, it was supposed to be 35 mintutes flight but was probably about 28 minutes flying time. The Captin (I believe Mike??) was great, very informative. Saw alll of the wonderful LA sites and star homes. I definetely recommend this company and when I'm in LA again I would definetely do another tour with them!

I have been on other helicopter tours but this helicopter tour of the Hollywood Strip is my absolute favourite! I could write a very long article on how wonderful this helicopter tour was for us but I will try to keep it short: The Limo Service: We chose the tour option with the limo service (we were told that it was a bit of a drive and passes through a rough neighborhood). This advice is correct! Our meeting point to get picked up was in front of the Kodak theater. The drive was about 30 minutes (a bit of traffic). There was a minibar in the 'Cruiser' which we did not use but was there if we needed anything. The Helicopter Tour: The helicopter was very small but - I do not mean this in a bad way at all - if anything , it was great! Because it was so small it felt more personalized. The windows were huge giving us the most amazing unobstructed views. We flew over celebrity homes (or should I say palaces!) including those belonging to Aaron Spelling, David Beckham, Tom Cruise, and Johnny Depp. We also flew over the beach and to make it perfect - we saw two dolphins jump out of the water! And of course, we flew so close to the Hollywood sign that we had to take the pictures in multiple shots! We passed numerous LA / Hollywood landmarks as well including the Disney Concert Hall. It was one of my favorite and memorable moments during my visit. I will be definitely recommending this to others and would not even mind doing it again (if the opportunity arises). This is a highly recommended helicopter tour to do in LA!

It was the most amazing experience. The pilot and entire staff made it special. The tour guide was very knowledageable on the entire L.A. area and celebrity homes. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is thinking of going to L.A. on holidays or for any reason.
