Amazing experience!!! No better way to see all the San Francisco landmarks. View is excellent from the helicopter (which seats 6 passengers) and the flight swoops under and then over the golden gate bridge which was very exciting. However I think there should be a fairer way of allocating the front seat (alongside the pilot), as I found in my group the front seat was claimed by someone who basically ran to the front of the queue! Overall though the service and staff were very friendly and welcoming. Would recommend for sure.

I am a fearful flyer and yet, wanted to experience a helicopter ride as it was on my bucket list. What a perfect day, perfect flight and I am so glad I waited to have my first helicopter ride in San Francisco. We met our driver at our arranged pickup spot and he was punctual and pleasant. When we arrived at the helicopter pad, the helicopter was spotless, our pilot handsome and away we went. The pilot took lots of pictures for us as we boarded the helicopter and as we began our ascent, as fearful as I was, it was truly amazing. I was lucky enough to score the seat beside the pilot and so my view was breathtaking.
The pilot kept remarking that we were lucky to have such a magnificent day for our ride - clear skies, no hint of fog and we could see for miles and miles. Over the ocean, under and over the Golden Gate Bridge, a close up view of Alcatraz and then into the heart of the city. I would highly recommend this tour.
