We were taken to the helicopter by bus and in the last five minutes were given a safety briefing by video. This necessitated the driver reaching up and behind his head to switch the video on and off. Hardly reassuring. We boarded the helicopter and...More

What a great experience, going under and over the Golden Gate Bridge. I would definitely recommend it to all, we were very lucky we had a good sunny day.

Would definitely recommend this trip, took the longer grande vista worth every penny. Pilot was great and the whole team were brilliant. Golden Gate was covered in fog but didn’t spoil it, and we flew under the other bridge which was fantastic.

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.
