I've been to San Francisco many times and never took a helicopter ride until now. It was the most unforgettable experience and the highlight of my trip. I got picked up at Pier 39 and was taken to the San Francisco Airport. During the ride to the airport, a dvd played of San Francisco and it's tourist attractions. When I arrived in San Franciso, I boarded the helicopter and sat alongside the pilot. The helicopter took off and I saw many beautiful views of Coit Tower, Candlestick Park, The Crookedest Street, Fisherman's Wharf, The Embarcadero, The Pyramid. The pilot pointed out all of the sights over the headsets. Music played on the headphones which complimented the flight. "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" and "Unforgettable" were two of the songs played. The most beautiful sight was the Golden Gate Bridge. The helicopter went both under and over the bridge. Totally awesome! Then the helicopter headed toward Sausalito, where it landed. I took a shuttle with the other passengers back to Pier 39.
I highly recommend taking this helicopter tour. Also, if you can, sit next to the pilot for the best views.
