What You Can Expect
Background music accompanies your flight, along with spontaneous narration by your professionally trained pilot.
This was the most incredible awesome experience I've had flying, would love to be a pilot! Flying under and over the golden gate was truly amazing.
Spectacular! Wonderful to have the experience of going under the Golden Gate Bridge. The weather was perfect! All members of the staff were super-friendly and professional.
Excellent experience. I would do it again. Lasted longer than scheduled time and was well worth the money. My only problem was that after the helicopter ride I was taken to a different drop off point than my pick up point. I questioned the driver and he said this was the only drop. I know there are 2 pick up points why only 1 drop off?? As a tourist I was not familiar with my location and spent time and money to get back to where i wanted to be
The day was perfect, the views spectacular, and the ride up, over and under the Golden Gate Bridge was breathtaking!! This flight was awesome and worth every penny!!
Exciting, enjoyable and breathtaking. Had a great time see the sights of San Francisco and the Bay from the air. It was amazing! The pilot was great and his commentary very informative. The ride can get a bit bumpy a times, but it was well-worth it.
The flight was great !!!

This tour is a must for anyone in San Fransisco on a short time scale. You get to see everything so perfectly and the pilot is incredible with great knowledge of all the landmarks.
What an amazing experience. The entire staff was super friendly and professional. The tour was on time and the view of San Francisco from up top was spectacular. You get to fly UNDER and OVER the Golden Gate Bridge. I captured video of this moment and it was a highlight of the tour. Definitely recommend!
