As one who always likes to get up high above a place, whether by tree, tower or mountain - this topped it all. Cannot rate this experience highly enough - it blew our minds. Completely worth the cost - and even then some. We absolutely loved it. It was just the two of us, and the pilot, which was a... More

Having just come back from our first visit to LA this helicopter trip was certainly one of the highlights of the holiday. Our pilot Gary was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out all of the sights including the homes of Will Smith, Tom Cruise etc. It was a beautiful clear and sunny day so the visibility was amazing and it gave...

We did the Deluxe Helicopter Tour and it's hard to put into words how amazing the experience is. Out pilot Gary was friendly and very knowledgeable. He was constantly pointing out places of interest and celebrity properties (of which there are an abundance!!). We had perfect clear conditions and saw pretty much the whole city. If you're planning a trip... More

We took a VIP tour which was just amazing, weather was good so had great views down the coast and of downtown. Had to miss out Santa Monica because of Air Traffic Control but these things can't be helped. My girlfriend was nervous about her first helicopter experience however our pilot Rick was fantastic at putting her at rest and... More

My best friend and I did the 30min ride for $150. They took us to the coast, by downtown and to the Hollywood sign as well as seeing celeb houses. Definitely recommend if you're willing to pay the $150.

What an amazing experience. I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone looking to do a helicopter tour of LA. The location was easy to find. The staff was very professional. The pilot clearly knew what he was doing and I was totally comfortable the entire time. Take off, landing and the entire flight was super smooth. Not only was... More

After traveling one month through CA, LA's Downtown is not the most beautiful. So just check out Hollywood Boulevard (kind of boring) and enjoy Venice/Santa Monica. The Flight was the highlight of LA. Gerry was kind, flexible and sophisticated. Totally recommended!

I took my teenage daughters on this tour. It was fantastic! The pilot was friendly and knowledgeable. He took us around LA showing us landmarks, even the homes of stars. The ride was smooth and easy. We enjoyed every second and are looking forward to taking an even longer tour again. VERY recommended!

I did this on a fluke when a business association of mine was visiting from China. We did the deluxe 45 minute ride which was incredible.
