My fiance and I visited South Lake Tahoe for our anniversary trip, and our first stop was a helicopter flight with JD and Reno-Tahoe Helicopters. It was our first time riding in a helicopter, and a seriously awesome experience!! Smooth flight, great tour and some seriously indescribable views of this beautiful area. If I could take this flight every week,... More

Unfortunatly we wre just one day at Lake Tahoe, so we wanted to get the most out of the day, the 45 minutes helicopter flight was the perfect way to do that. And a great birthday present to my Sister. The flight was awesome!!!

My partner and I took the waterfalls trip during a 2 day stop over in Tahoe. Informative commentary and the route taken revealed an unbelievable view of the lakes, waterfalls and mountains around Tahoe. A 'must do' if you are in the Lake Tahoe area, worth every $.

We did the "waterfall" tour. The trip was great, but the waterfalls, themselves, we're okay. The problem was that the helicopter was so high up (I'm guessing for safety reasons) that the waterfalls were pretty small and we couldn't get a great look. What was more spectacular were the lakes that dotted the mountains above. I probably wouldn't do a... More

Troy, We are glad you enjoyed the flight. The area that tour takes place in is designated a wilderness area, and therefore we are requested to maintain an altitude of 2000ft. over the terrain. We would love to get down lower, but all the wildlife in the area, such as Bald Eagles, benefit from a reduced noise impact in their... More

Greatly enjoyed the experience from start to finish. I felt extremely relaxed and secure from the moment they seat belted me at take off through landing. The views were spectacular and nothing you can imagine unless you have experienced it yourself. I highly recommend this experience to everyone that gets the opportunity to enjoy such an adventure especially with these... More

Great great great views and the pilot Dave gave us a wonderful smooth tour....!!! We were able to see the clear blue lake at its finest, while admiring the Sierra mountains melting snow.

This helicopter tour was just spectacular. The ride was smooth and the view of the lake, the snow dusted mountains and smaller lakes were just unbelievable beautiful. Trying to describe it won't do it justice as one can never appreciate the color of the water and the panoramic view from the ground. The pilot was very informative with historical information...

They were safe and knowledgeable leaving no thoughts but to enjoy the amazing view! They also did a great job of narrating the sights with it being our first trip to the area. Would highly recommend taking the time to... More
