20 mins of emerald bay is a great experience and worth 70 usd / person the scenery is mesmerizing. The staff is very corporative and explains all the places in view.

“It was the highlight of our vacation”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

The helicopter ride was so beautiful and fun. We did the short flight, but we will go back to do a longer ride sometime soon. It was so peaceful yet adventurous, perfect for a couples vacation. The pilot was very nice and informative, he made the flight one to remember. If you are thinking of doing this, stop thinking and do it! So great.

“Worth every penny”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

This was the third time flying with Claudio. The first was just as a couple. Then we bought a flight for a couple that just got married, and lastly,we brought our friends from the Czech Republic to experience the beauty of Tahoe from above. We always ask for Claudio as he is humorous, informative and professional. On the last trip, our guests struggled with English but spoke Russian as well, we found out that Claudio did too. It was great for our guests to get the tour in Russian and this was a super special treat. The views from the helicopter are priceless and breathtaking. We highly recommend this activity as a must do while in Tahoe.

“100% worth it!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

We were on our honeymoon and wanted to do something we would never do at home. We booked the 20 minute flight and it was beyond amazing! Claudio and Josh were our pilots and were awesome! Would highly recommend to do while in Lake Tahoe! We want to return and do the sunset flight!
