I wish I could leave 6 stars! I called Elite at 6:30pm on a Friday evening and was shocked that a live person in the office actually answered the phone. And not only did someone answer the phone but they were able to schedule a completely last minute tour for the next day (Saturday). They sent me a confirmation email... More

Fantastic trip over LA, we did the tour over Topanga Canyon, Malibu, Santa Monica, Downtown and Hollywood. Lorenzo was our pilot and an excellent guide: pointing out celeb houses but also many interesting facts about the different LA regions. Very easy to book. Overall a really fun, relaxed and knowledgeable way to see the massive and wonderful vistas of LA.

Booking and availability was a painless process. We were met at the gate by Lorenzo Lamas, who took us to the hanger and introduced us to our two pilots (family of 4 = 2 helicopters). The two helicopters flew side by side most of the tour. It is the only way to see LA/Hollywood. Save your $$$ from frustrating "Tour... More

Our pilot was Rosco and he had a very funny way to show us around LA! In the 60 minute ride he not only took over Malibu / Beverly / Hollywood sign but told us many funny stories and made it very special! The whole concept of looking a over a city in a helicopter is amazing! The hills, the... More

I realized who our pilot was during the flight but did not want to embarrass either of us by making a fuss. However to cap off an excellent trip by being flown around by a celeb just made our first day in LA just that bit more magical!

Having never flown in a helicopter before, I have to rate this as excellent because we took off and landed in one piece. Our pilot was Lorenzo Lamas, yes THAT Lorenzo. Our flight was exhilarating and Lorenzo was very informative and friendly. He's passionate about flying and knows the area well which makes this a trip worth taking. And it's... More

Our Pilot Rick has been flying for 35 years and I could not think of anyone better to have flown us around LA. A very skilled pilot but also knowledgeable of locations and properties. We originally booked their Bell Jet ranger to take 4 of us at once, but last minute maintenance grounded the chopper and we took 2 separate... More
