Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the San Francisco Vista Grande Helicopter Tour submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
This trip was definitely the highlight of our trip. We were let down by the government shutdown for other trips but this more than made up for it. We had fantastic clear weather and so were able to fly under the Golden Gate Bridge, it was my husbands birthday so he got to sit in the front which made it even more special. The pick up was hassle free and the pilot was great. We thoroughly recommend this company and this trip.Reviewed by: Michaela W, October 2013
From the time I made reservations, the flight itself, to the final landing, all were excellent!!! The trip was totally worth the cost - just wished it was a bit longer. The staff was extremely helpful in accommodating my special needs for the day in celebration of my husband's birthday. Thanks!!!Reviewed by: Diane K, September 2013
We were definitely not pleased with our tour. Our van was nice and the video we watched in the van was the closest we came to seeing many of the sights that are promised. We left from our heliport and the next time we went over land was when we were landing. The only exciting part was going under the Golden Gate Bridge. Everything else we were going to see we saw from a distance while we were well over water. We were not told this, but there was an event going on at Candlestick Park as well as AT and T field. Given that we couldn't come within a quarter mile of land. If they had been honest and told me I would have rescheduled or they should have reduced the cost. As it is, we spent $450 to fly under the Golden Gate Bridge. When we were going to land we ended up flying in figure 8's over a group of oil tankers for twenty minutes before getting clearance to land. Our pilot spoke very little to us and spent the majority of his time talking with flight control so many of our questions went unanswered. I have been on many helicopter tours and never had one quite this bad. I recommend going to dinner at the Top of the Mark or eating at The Palace. It won't cost nearly as much and the memories will last forever.Reviewed by: David H, August 2013
This tour is amazing! What an experience to fly under the Golden Gate Bridge! We had beautiful weather and our pilot was extremely informative. Only sad part was, it was over too soon!!! Thanks for the best ride in the San Francisco Bay area.Reviewed by: Sandra K, August 2013
I couldn't understand half of what the pilot was saying because he mumbled.Reviewed by: Robert G, August 2013
