Went on 45 minute LA tour with family last Sunday and had a great experience. Coming from the UK we had no prior knowledge of helicopter companies in LA and was a little sceptical of Elite due to their lower prices, there was no need to worry. Andy responded promptly to my initial emails and was also availble by phone... More

The name says it all. Andy did a great job accommodating my short notice. I surprised the family for a quick Hollywood and downtown L A tour and he went right along with the story. Our pilot was great. Very informative and our kids couldn't believe how smooth the ride was. They did a great job. Check them out. You... More

I organised a heli tour with Andy via email. Andy was very helpful and we were looking forward to our flight with him. Unfortunately, there was some maintenance to Elite's helicopter taking place on the day of our flight, but Andy was so awesome and arranged for us to do the same flight with a company near by. He arranged... More

Its not a cheap tour but as a long time resident I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this as a special treat. We did the 45 tour and the time flew by (ouch). Saw lots of famous homes and sites, but the thing I liked best was the perspective of seeing how parts of LA differ in ways you wouldn't normally... More

After reading all of the Elite reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to call Elite and book a tour. We live in SoCal, so this was a small jaunt for us. I decided to surprise my husband on one of our weekly dates and take him for a tour of LA, like nothing he's ever seen! He was shocked. I... More

Although the prices are high, Elite Heli is cheaper than other helicopter tours of LA! I had so much fun during the flight and it was my first time flying in a helicopter!! It is definitely a must do if you can afford to do it! We did a 30 min tour of Dowtown LA and saw many celebrity homes,... More

Love it! In all the important ways, Elite was great. I took my wife and kids (ages 6 and 9) for the 45-minute flight over LA. The Elite staff were friendly, professional, accommodating -- the trip was everything I'd hoped for and more! I look forward to saving up the money for another trip with them! In order to be... More
