We booked a one-hour private charter and would do this again in a heartbeat! John's professionalism and knowledge of the area was the perfect match for the tour. Flying *under* the Golden Gate Bridge...unforgettable.

I was on a business trip and invited my customers to an afternoon event with Bay Aerial. John (the pilot) is very skilled and gave us a tour over the area. Highlights were circling over San Francisco skyscrapers, flying underneith the Golden Gate Bridge and "surfing" over the sea at low altitude. Absolutely great experience and my customers loved it. Promise, you´ll do this instead of sitting in a boxed private plane. Helicopter is so much better.

This was simply the best helicopter tour I have ever had ! I've been fortunate enough to take helicopter tours all over the world and I can honestly say that this was the most memorable. The windows of the helicopter were crystal clear for breathtaking views of the Bay Area. The highlight was flying UNDER the Golden Gate bridge ! I felt completely safe from take-off to landing, and the price for an hour long flight for 3 passengers was a steal.

This was my first time in a helicopter along with my husband and my 8 year old. John was great and made us all feel very at ease.
We went over and under the Golden Gate Bridge and got amazing photos.
We had the helicopter to ourselves so views were perfect and flew over SF surrounding areas that we would never have seen unless from the air. John knows the area really well and pointed out lots of sights to us.
I would 100% recommend this trip

One member of our party was a little nervous about flying in a helicopter. After talking with John and in less than a minute in to the flight all trepidation was gone. To say this was one of the best helicopter flights I've ever taken would be a gross understatement. Bay Ariel helicopter is a small company but the pride they take in their equipment and their pilots can't be overstated. The R44 helicopter provides wonderful viewing for any seat. We had great weather and a great flight. I grew up in the bay area spent the last six years of my career in San Francisco and have to admit seeing the city and the bay area from this perspective is unbelievable. The one hour flight was fantastic. Not only San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, but then south down the coast. So AWESOME. We saw whales, one was a female with her calf, dolphins and great beaches. John's knowledge of the area was a welcome treat. This is a very customer oriented business. Wish I could give more stars.

This is a must do in your lifetime. You get awesome views of the bay, San Mateo Bridge, East Bay, Bay Bridge, AT&T Park, San Francisco, Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, Point Bonita Lighthouse, Precidio, Ocean Beach, Pacific Coastline, Half Moon Bay, Woodside and everything in between. John the pilot is highly experienced, friendly and an all around cool guy. He is very knowledgable of all the landmarks and history. The helicopter itself is very comfortable. The windows are spotless and provide you with great views. I highly recommend and suggest booking a flight with John the next time you are in San Francisco. You won't forget it.

My wife and I have rode helicopters all over the country and last week we took a trip with John. John was a great pilot and explained the sights very good. We saw a lot of things that you would never see from the ground. The top of the golden gate bridge was covered in fog so we went under the bridge to finish our trip.
Thanks James M.
