This was a great experience and well worth the price. Going under and over the Golden Gate bridge was pretty amazing. That was my favorite part...but a close second was the 360-view that the helicopter performed, turning around so that we could see all of San Francisco. I would definitely do this again and already have plans to take my daughter on a special father/daughter date!

A+ service from start to finish. Our shuttle driver was kind and allowed us to leave a large umbrella in the shuttle. Brock our pilot was awesome! He is informational and fun. He made sure we knew what to expect while flying in a helicopter and we felt safe through the entire experience.

Absolutely the best way to see SF. Best way to do it would be get 6 people together so you can have the whole helicopter filled up with your party. Make sure to allow 30 mins to and from by shuttle.

Absolutely amazing experience! To see all the great sites (Alcatrz, Golden Gate, downtown SF) from the air was beautiful! Doing a fly-under and then over the Golden Gate bridge was just the cherry on top!

My wife and I had never been in a helicopter before. The helicopter ride was truly a lot of fun. Spectacular views!!! Everyone was great; from the shuttle driver, to the pilot. Good times!

This was 1st class from start to finish, I was at what i thought was my pick up point at zephyr hotel , however I was at wrong entrance so lucky for me i had put my phone number on the booking ( albeit an Irish mobile number) and they rang me wondering where I was and when I round to the other side of hotel I was greeted by very friendly driver ( forgive me as can’t remember name ) in a spotless condition small bus and proceeded to the departure point and was greeted by Ron our pilot who was just as friendly and obviously very professional,the trip itself was breathtaking and of excellent duration and absolutely excellent commentary of where we were and whet we were looking it etc , i could recommend this trip and this company to anyone and it was also excellent value for money ‘

The overall experience was one of a kind. Was a little scared at first due to me not really much of a heights kinda guy, but pilot made it a very comfortable ride, and equipment was in impeccable condition. Tries to do something special for my wife and she totally loved it!!!! Would 1000% do it again.
