If you are still undecided whether to go for a Helicopter tour - do it! I used to fly at one point in the UK and a heli experience just can't be beaten. It was my partners first ever flight in a helicopter and it brought the biggest smile. We did the Emerald Bay tour which is only 10 minutes... More

Fantastic experience on the 60 minute Sunset Trip, great views as we flew around the lake as the sun fell, Clint was a great host and pilot, pointed out homes of the rich and famous, film locations and shared scandalous rumours of the potential comings and goings of stars and politicians. One of the highlights of our 14 night tour... More

This was one of my favorite things we did on our honeymoon in Tahoe. The views are spectacular and worth every penny. Our pilot, Clint, was very knowledgable about the area and had a great sense of humor. He made us feel right at home. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

We booked this helicopter tour for our family on our visit to Lake Tahoe. Our pilot Clint was great! He was funny and knowledgeable and gave us tons of tips and advice about places to visit while here. He also showed us the most amazing views of emerald bay and the beautiful Tahoe scenery. We also got some great tips... More

I've been in and out Tahoe for short getaway so many times, after reading positive reviews online about this company, I wanted to give it a try. Our pilot was Clint (If i remember correctly). He was very knowledgeable and has immense passion with his job. Our flight was only 20 mins, but I felt I've learned so much about... More

I paid about 400 dollars to take a 45 minute helicopter tour which was when I was going to propose to my girlfriend. We arrived early to the airport where they do the helicopter rides and had to wait about an hour and a half because the other person scheduled ahead of us was late. I was calm about it... More

HeliTahoe, Manager at Reno-Tahoe Helicopters, responded to this review

As your pilot, I will be addressing this review personally. I took some time to go back to the 10-minute helicopter ride (our shortest tour available for $160) you booked for your "special day" to make sure I had all the facts straight. In the 12 years of operation in Lake Tahoe, our company has had a spotless safety record.... More

My wife and I did the emerald bay helicopter tour and it was amazing. We had a super clear day and the scenery from 4K feet was awesome. Our pilot, Clint, was a great guy and made the experience even better. He was full of knowledge and had answers to all of our questions. I highly recommend this activity on... More
