Very good, picked up on time, and no waiting about at the Helicopter take off point (like some other helicopter trips I have been on) we had a clear day, and the views are amazing. We had the longer tour, but I am not sure that it was any longer than the stanadard tour, so I would say just go for the standard tour. The driver who picked us up also dropped us off at a different point to our pick up as it was easier for us, with no problems, and he went out of his way to help a lady who needed to get to a bank to cash some traveller cheques, So excellent customer service, Very professional, and would definitely recomend. Flying under the Golden gate bridge was a real highlight.

THE HELICOPTER TOUR WAS WONDERFUL. NEVER BEEN IN ONE OF THOSE THINGS BEFORE. IT WAS RAINING, SO THAT DID COMPLICATE A LOT OF THINGS LIKE TRANSPORTATION TO AND FROM, BUT THE TOUR WAS GOOD. OFCOURSE WE COULD NOT SEE AS MUCH AS WE COULD HAVE SEEN ON A CLEAR DAY, BUT NO ONE IS IN CHARGE OF THE WEATHER. WAS REALLY HAPPY THEY DID NOT CANCEL OUR TOUR THOUGH. PILOT WAS GOOD AND FLYING UNDER THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE WAS VERY COOL, ALSO SEEING ALCATRAZ FROM THE AIR.
I WOULD DO IT AGAIN!!!! LINDA

AWESOME,AWESOME,AWESOME! This was the highlight of our trip:) We were picked up at the Hilton in Union Square at 10:00 am. Arrived at the airport approximately 1/2 hour later. We were brought right to the helicopter and the pilot was waiting for us. The helicopter itself was amazing:))) Leather bucket seats, cup holders,head phones with a microphone....totally cool....I felt like I was a movie star:) The flight itself was beautiful....we saw ALL of San Francisco, Alcatraz and most importantly flew UNDER THE GOLDEN GATE BRIDGE!!! Yes, under the bridge....scary but, exciting at the same time. Loved the pilot....we wanted to do something later in the day and he told us about Coppola winery....OH MY GOSH!! This too is a must!!! Beautiful winery, terrific wine, fabulous food.....Would highly recommend taking the helicopter tour....It was worth every penny we spent!!! KUDOS !!!!!!

This helicopter trip was amazing. We had been picked up as arranged and transported to the helipad. We were lucky enough to be the only passengers as others had cancelled and I was able to sit alongside,the pilot, Ron, who gave us a great commentary as we flew around the city. It was a pity that the Golden Gate Bridge was surrounded in the famous fog, but we were still able to fly underneath it, TWICE, the highlight of the tour. It was really great and well worth the extravagance!

Wonderful and well worth the money for the 30 minute tour!!! Shuttle driver and pilot were very friendly and knowledgeable of San Francisco. Not our 1st helicopter tour and won't be the last!

Wow...fantastic experience for me and my husband. I was our last day and really closed out our week. I will warn that the helicopter holds 6 people so somebody sits in front and one person sits in the middle (if there are 6 of you). My husband sat up front and he said it was the most amazing thing because it is just pure windows and you see all angles. Flying under the Golden Gate Bridge is a true experience and one that will not be forgotten. I would do it all over again if the opportunity came up.

Eenjoyable tour, weather unfortunately was very misty/cloudy so we were unable to fly over golden Gate bridge, but the pilot still made great effort for us to see as much as we could with the restrictions the weather caused.
Pick up driver and pilot both very friendly and very helpful. would recommend and cerainly do it again.
