Flight was awesome. Guys are great. You can all chat to each other. We lucked out with only the 4 of us on the flight. Otherwise I can see it being a little cramped. Got a birds eye view of the city and even flew under the bay bridge. Flew over to Alcatraz for a quick glimpse.

Highly recommend this tour. Our pilot, Brock, was outstanding. Most important a good pilot, but also friendly and personable. The Bell helicopter was in excellent condition, and the tour (pick up at hotel and delivery to helipad in Sausalito) was smooth and well organized.
