The pilot was great, informative, and, most importantly, sociable. There wasn't a moment of silence; we conversed about each lake and creek we flew over. The views are beyond amazing and beautiful.

It was amazing and the views were beautiful. Just wish it was a little longer of a ride rather than 15-20 minutes. Worth it though, and would definitely do it again. We felt safe the entire ride and the pilot made us feel comfortable.

Response from TahoeHelicopters, General Manager at Emerald Bay Helicopter Tour of Lake Tahoe
Responded Dec 9, 2020
Please accept our apologies, we make every attempt possible to avoid this situation. Upon reviewing the flight manifest for the day it was discovered a booking exceeding our limitations was accepted by your preferred booking site. The weight restriction information is surfaced at least 2 times prominently throughout the process, including at the time a customer enters their weights. We apologize for any difficulties encountered as a result of this oversight; the restrictions are paramount to the safety of the participants, pilot, and everyone on the ground.
