This is a Bucket list MUST. The experience was Amazing. To be able to see South Shore from the air is truly a breath taking experience. Our Pilot Clint made us feel very comfortable and he had a lot of information to share about the area. Thank you for such an Awesome Experience :)

It was a great ride, the pilot (and co-host, Dori) had some great info to share. We also cracked a couple jokes and they were just good people to hang out with for the flight. They also take helicopter safety very seriously, and gave a safety talk to begin the flight. I only wish my headphones worked the entire time,... More

I went on a 30 minute flight with my boyfriend. We flew over lakes, Emerald Bay, and the most beautiful waterfalls. I cannot describe how amazing it was to see Tahoe from this perspective. It is absolutely beautiful, and 100% worth seeing it from a helicopter. We are coming back out in June with some friends and have another tour... More

This was definitely the highlight of our trip, and one of the highlights of 2015 for us BY FAR!! Our pilot was knowledgable and friendly ( can't find his card, but I believe his name was Dave), the view was simply amazing and we got some great pictures. We got to see famous people's houses from afar (Tiger Woods, and... More

I contacted Dave well in advance of my trip to the USA. He was really helpful and friendly with my enquiries for a heli lesson whilst in the area. The company worked within my schedule and I had a really fun lesson. They are very friendly and clearly love their work. Highly recommended company.

Claudio was our pilot and he was very professional. We took off on time and felt very safe during the flight. Claudio is an experienced pilot and he is very friendly. Overlooking Lake Tahoe (Sand Harbor Tour) for 30 minutes from the Air is an amazing experience. We will definitely do it again, but next time we would double our... More

I really enjoyed our trip around Emerald Bay with Claudio. From the moment we arrived Claudio greeted us with a funny, cheerful attitude that carried throughout the experience. I've been to Tahoe a number of times, but the view from the helicopter gave me a newfound appreciation for the Lake's wonderful beauty and vastness. The helicopter ride itself was very... More

Claudio provides the smoothest helicopter tour ever. He is a calm and professional pilot and he knows Lake Tahoe. Terrific experience. Wish I had done this sooner, but will do again.
