I have been in LA a few times before but first time doing a helicopter tour. I must say we were deeply impressed by the service level, the helicopter (just us two and the pilot!) and the tour itself. We took the 45 minutes tour which felt like the best option. 30mins would maybe have been a bit too short.... More

Extremely last minute "What to do on your Birthday "let's charter a helicopter for an hour and see the sights" Called these guys and spoke with Gary, who accommodated us with 1 1/2 hours notice. A quick 30 minute drive to Van Nuys Airport and we were on our way. We chartered the aircraft as a family of three. It... More

As the traffic is so bad in LA, we decided to use this as an alternative to get to see s much as possible as we only had a short time in LA. The flight takes you out over the Hollywood Hills, getting a birds eye view of all the amazing houses. Then along the beech and around to the... More

I booked via e-mail, got prompt response and confirmation. We arrived a bit earlier but it was no problem and Gary was glad to start the tour early. We had the 45 min tour and we enjoyed every minute of it. Before boarding Gary explained a few things about the helicopter which was very nice as it was our first... More

We took the 45 minute deluxe tour early on a Saturday morning back in November (first of the day) and I cannot recommend these guys highly enough. Setting aside the view (understandably you might consider the Grand Canyon or similar being a ‘better’ tour), this is the best helicopter tour we have ever done. I regret not remembering our pilot’s... More

A wonderful way for me and my boyfriend to finish off our Valentine's Day weekend in L.A. As we are from the UK, we loved being out in the morning sunshine. It allowed us to see so much of the city. The Helicopter was stunning too, it was a huge treat! The tour was informative and super exciting!! I would... More

First of all I have to say the direction giving were so good that it was easy to find the place. When we arrived Roscoe our pilot came out and greeted us and made us feel so welcome. Roscoe is so humble, very friendly and caring and funny. He made sure my kids were safe outside and inside the helicopter... More

I have been doing helicopter rides around the world but I must say this was better than any one of them. My super friendly pilot Roscoe suggested we took off the doors and that really made the flight extra special! We took off just before sunset and the weather couldn't have been more perfect. We saw everything worth seeing in... More
