I have been on other helicopter tours but this helicopter tour of the Hollywood Strip is my absolute favourite! I could write a very long article on how wonderful this helicopter tour was for us but I will try to keep it short: The Limo Service: We chose the tour option with the limo service (we were told that it was a bit of a drive and passes through a rough neighborhood). This advice is correct! Our meeting point to get picked up was in front of the Kodak theater. The drive was about 30 minutes (a bit of traffic). There was a minibar in the 'Cruiser' which we did not use but was there if we needed anything. The Helicopter Tour: The helicopter was very small but - I do not mean this in a bad way at all - if anything , it was great! Because it was so small it felt more personalized. The windows were huge giving us the most amazing unobstructed views. We flew over celebrity homes (or should I say palaces!) including those belonging to Aaron Spelling, David Beckham, Tom Cruise, and Johnny Depp. We also flew over the beach and to make it perfect - we saw two dolphins jump out of the water! And of course, we flew so close to the Hollywood sign that we had to take the pictures in multiple shots! We passed numerous LA / Hollywood landmarks as well including the Disney Concert Hall. It was one of my favorite and memorable moments during my visit. I will be definitely recommending this to others and would not even mind doing it again (if the opportunity arises). This is a highly recommended helicopter tour to do in LA!
