San Francisco Vista Grande Helicopter Tour

San Francisco Vista Grande Helicopter Tour

You will be picked up from a central San Francisco meeting point and taken to the heliport to board a Bell Jet Helicopter for take-off on an exciting San Francisco Helicopter Tour.

An accompanying musical soundtrack is choreographed to the flight, along with spontaneous narration by your professionally trained pilot. View the hills of San Francisco where you can see famous districts such as the Castro, the Mission, Pacific Heights, Chinatown and the Presidio. Flying over San Francisco you will get a unique perspective of the city skyline, including AT&T Park - Home of the SF Giants, Coit Tower at the top of Telegraph Hill and the financial district with the famous Transamerica Pyramid.

On this 56-mile (90-kilometer) helicopter flight (25-30 minutes), you will see many of the well-known San Francisco Bay landmarks from the air such as the Ferry Building, Alcatraz Island, the Bay Bridge, Fisherman's Wharf and of course, the Golden Gate Bridge.

Fly north to take in the Marin Headlands and California's craggy Pacific Coastline. You will also see the artist town of Sausalito, the sleepy town of Tiburon, and the former immigration station of Angel Island - the "Ellis Island of the West".

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

"Simply awesome" was the phrase I used when climbing out of the heli to the next fortunate people!

So well organised - from the helpful team in the office, to the young man who drives the shuttle bus - such a cheerful crew!

What a trip - John (the pilot) was so informative and when we flew under and then over the GGB - wow - that's something to cherish and not many can say they have done that! Weather was good and the time flew by - I had my camera fixed to my eye and never stopped taking snaps - my memories will stay with me forever as well as the photos - DO NOT MISS THIS TRIP - no one should be allowed to visit San Francisco without booking the Vista Grande Helicopter Tour - THANK YOU to all who made this happen (and to my friend who gave this gift to me).....

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

A fantastic way to see the skyline of the city and the thrill of flying under then over the Golden Gate bridge was awesome. A must do if you're visiting San Francisco.
