This flight was extraordinary. The helicopter was smooth and Marius is an excellent pilot. He also is a great tour guide as he told us all about everything we were flying over.Fun, professional and very personable. It is one of nature's treasures and seeing it from the air was awesome.

This was a wonderful way to see the lake. The helicopter appeared to be very new and was comfortable. The pilot was knowledgeable and we felt very safe. I would gladly recommend them to anyone visiting Lake Tahoe.
