We were definitely not pleased with our tour. Our van was nice and the video we watched in the van was the closest we came to seeing many of the sights that are promised. We left from our heliport and the next time we went over land was when we were landing. The only exciting part was going under the Golden Gate Bridge. Everything else we were going to see we saw from a distance while we were well over water. We were not told this, but there was an event going on at Candlestick Park as well as AT and T field. Given that we couldn't come within a quarter mile of land. If they had been honest and told me I would have rescheduled or they should have reduced the cost. As it is, we spent $450 to fly under the Golden Gate Bridge. When we were going to land we ended up flying in figure 8's over a group of oil tankers for twenty minutes before getting clearance to land. Our pilot spoke very little to us and spent the majority of his time talking with flight control so many of our questions went unanswered. I have been on many helicopter tours and never had one quite this bad. I recommend going to dinner at the Top of the Mark or eating at The Palace. It won't cost nearly as much and the memories will last forever.
This tour is amazing! What an experience to fly under the Golden Gate Bridge! We had beautiful weather and our pilot was extremely informative. Only sad part was, it was over too soon!!! Thanks for the best ride in the San Francisco Bay area.
Awesome experience. We were well looked after during the trip which included not only the flight but the transit to and from as well. A unique and exhilarating way to view the Bay Area, flying under and then over the Golden Gate Bridge was a great way to see this iconic landmark.
The tour and staff could not have been better!
So friendly, professional, and accommodating, we had such a great time.
They are the best!
This helicopter tour was a present as part of our 40th wedding anniversary. The whole experience was just fantastic and very professionally done from beginning to end. On the day the weather was perfect and flying over and under the bridge was amazing. We would recommend this trip to anyone visiting San Francisco as this was one of the highlights of our anniversary trip to America.
a perfect experience! This was really exciting and our group was also lucky to do the "fly under and over the bridge" thing. Just amazing!
great service, pickup on time be friendly driver who pointed out highlights on the way to the chopper, flight was fantastic some fog around which we thought may spoil our flight but it was fine , flew under the Golden Gate bridge! due to baseball game we were unable to fly directly over the city but the run around the bay was great, I highly recommend this trip, don't forget you camera
Great trip - and be as lucky as we were and get the fly both over AND under the Golden Gate!
We thoroughly enjoyed our helicopter tour. It's a bit expensive but the views are unbelievable and memorable.
Everyone was very professional. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish and the views were awesome! I have never had a bad Viatour trip...you guys are great!
Great experience...start to finish!! Pickup was on-time, delivery was smooth and the flight was awesome!! Best way to see the Golden Gate Bridge...above and below!!
Completely fantastic! From the excellent pick-up service with a very friendly and professional guy, to a fun and knowledgeable pilot providing us with a safe flight, with fantastic views and flying below (!) the Golden Gate... - superbe!! Highly recommended. I did the flight on my birthday and it was one of the definite highlights of my day - especially because I got to sit in the co-pilot seat. Bliss for a helicopter freak like me. Thank you!!
