Big Sur & Sharks, Silicon Valley tour or a wine tasting visit? Golf, go to the City or Sierras quickly.

My husband has always wanted to go up in a helicopter, so for his birthday I arranged a helicopter tour with Specialized Helicopters. It was everything he hoped it would be. Our pilot Danny was awesome, explaining everything, asking questions and just a great guy! The views were incredible!! This is a pricy adventure but SO worth it!

I bought an intro airplane flying lesson for my fiance as a stocking stuffer for Christmas - such a bargain! And he LOVED it. I waited in the lobby and talked to the very friendly instructors that were there while he flew the first time. They were all so helpful and knowledgeable. He had so much fun, and said the... More

This was so much fun! If you are even in the slightest curious about helicopters, you need to do this. My boyfriend and I did the ten minute tour around the Bay, it was too short, I wish we could have done the longer tours. Our pilot was so friendly and funny, he gave us a lot of Wastonville history... More
