Amazing tour!
We had a fantastic experience with San Francisco helicopter tours.

From the very start we were looked after by the fabulous Shepard. We then were greeted by Brock the helicopter pilot who took us on an amazing helicopter tour of the bay. We then flew to a wonderful winery for a wine and food pairing. Brock then flew us back and we caught some more amazing views.

Couldn’t recommend it more highly.

Thanks Shepard and Brock!!!

Stunning view and great experience during wine tasting
Aug 2019
Memorable experience. Nice helicopter ride. The helicopter was clean and neat, the ride was comfortable and the view was stunning, especially the flying under and over the Golden Gate Bridge. The wine tasting experience was also great. Food and wine were great. Can't recommend it more enough. Totally worth the money.
