Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

San Francisco Vista Helicopter Tour

Enjoy amazing views of San Francisco on a thrilling helicopter tour!

Take in an amazing bird’s-eye view of San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area with an affordable helicopter flight. Choose from three different departure times and pickup at either Union Square or Fisherman’s Wharf, and relax on the ride to the launch pad. After a safety briefing, climb aboard the Bell Jet helicopter and launch into the air for an unforgettable vista of the world-famous city.  

Admire the unique landscape of the city, which spans the tip of a peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. Hover over landmarks like Alcatraz Island, the Transamerica pyramid, the Ferry Building, Ghirardelli Square, and the new span of the Bay Bridge. Admire the stately hotels atop Nob Hill and the historic buildings surrounding Union Square. For the ultimate thrill, and when weather conditions permit, fly over and under the Golden Gate Bridge.

Throughout the 15-to-20-minute flight, enjoy inspiring background music and live narration from your pilot. After touching down back at the launch pad, you will be transported back to your original departure point.

Although, the flight left the day after due to bad weather, it was very well worth it. The day was beautiful and our pilot was great he took us over and under both the Golden Gate and Bay Bridge. I highly recommend it to anyone.

The tour is worth the money. Of course, for a 15 minute tour you might think USD 195 is too much! But, this is a totally different experience with flying over and under the golden gate bridge. It's a great opportunity for photographers to record a different perspective of the city.
