I was on another helicopter tour in the past of another city and the ride wasn't as smooth or nice as this one was...it was like heaven to ride with this pilot : and I enjoyed myself very much. It was really so my SON could experience a ride in a helicopter, he is 14 since he has done the Young Eagles program at the local airports where he gets to ride in a 4 seater plane, sometimes in the cockpit, and he wants to be a pilot now---he wondered what it was like to ride in a helicopter : so I booked this tour while we were visiting San Fran. He got to sit next to the pilot, which was very exciting for him!!! The views were wonderful and like I said, the ride was SO SO SMOOTH, I was really impressed. The only thing we wished was different was that the ride would have been longer!! : 30min goes by rather quickly!!! It was a good time for both of us and I highly recommend it...
Slick from start to finish.
A comfy minibus collected us from the hotel and drove us to SFO airport and then the helicopter ride was excellent.
Over San Francisco, Petco Park, Alcatraz and then under and back over the Golden Gate Bridge. I got to sit in the front with the pilot which was the best seat in the house.
Thoroughly recommended - safety briefing great, just superb.
If you get the chance this will be the best way to spend your holiday dollars. You won't regret it.
Thanks so much
One of the coolest things I have ever done. I will definitely be doing it again
