what an experience just flying under the golden gate bridge was stunning enough but when the pilot did a 360 degree hover to let us get panoramic view of San Francisco bay area it just took you breath away not cheap but well worth the money for the views and excitement

I was only in San Francisco for a couple of hours and was looking for the quickest way to tour the city. This was it! Probably one of the coolest things I have ever done!!! Worth the money!!!

Well what can I say .....wow what a trip would definitely do the 30 minute trip it was as John on our helicopter would have said awesome and it was.
A bit of advise pick an afternoon flight we found the weather to unpredictable in the morning!
Pick up point was easy to find and easily explained.
We had a great time and would like to thank Viator and the San Fransico Helicopter company for making it a great day to remember.
Tip,
Fly with someone who has a birthday ! We had two couples who had birthdays on our trip and the pilot did an over and under to celebrate the day.
It's a celebration of our birthday everyday ....right!!!
Great time

This tour is really amazing, the helicopter view of Sn Francisco is out of this world. My only issue is the tour says Returns to original departure point. In our case we were dropped off in Sausalito, then the return to the city was through ferry, not helicopter. Anyway, 5 stars.

I had a great experience. I've lived in SF for 16 years and this helicopter tour made me fall in love with San Francisco all over again. Aside from the magical views and the thrill of being in the air, I also felt absolutely safe. The pilot was friendly and clearly a capable. There was a bit of fog on the day of my flight but the pilot was still able to show us of amazing vistas. The ground transportation team was also nice and professional. I highly recommend this tour.

I have lived in Northern California for most of my life and I dreamed of taking this trip and it was everything I had hoped it would be and so much more. From the expertise of Captain Ron to the unsurpassed views it was the trip of a lifetime and one I would do again in a heartbeat!

It was great! The only issue is SF parking in general, as the Helicopter tour shuttle picks you up from a couple different hotels in Fisherman's Wharf, and drives you to the SF airport. If there's a way to just park at the airport for an hour or so, that might be an easier way to go. However, the shuttle driver was very pleasant so no complaints about that part. And the actual helicopter trip itself was AWESOME! We were scheduled for the 3:30 lift off, but since there were a dozen people scheduled at that time, they split us into two groups. We went in the 2nd group, which meant we got back to Fisherman's Wharf a bit later than we anticipated we had tickets for the Red and White fleet boat tour that we missed, but those are good for a year, so just keep your schedule open if you plan to go. I got some GREAT pictures and the pilot was informative and pleasant, but didn't talk TOO much either. Flew us right under the Golden Gate bridge, and I'd say we got our full 30 minutes worth for sure! They even offered to take pics of us in front of the helicopter when we were all done. I highly recommend this tour!

This was SO worth every penny! My boyfriend and I absolutely loved every minute of our flight. The pilot was phenomenal and it was so fun flying under the bridge and getting to see San Francisco from above. We learned a lot from the pilot pointing things out and telling us more about this awesome city.

The helicopter tour was breathtaking and the gentleman who drove us to the airport was friendly and very kind. However the gentleman who drove us back was on his cell phone most of the time. He was texting and swerving. Many people were not paying attention but I was and I there was a time I was going to voice my concerns but I tried not to raise concerns. I want to add, it wasn't just one text, he was on the phone for 80 of the drive back. Very disturbing. I took several tours in San Francisco and did not experience this with anyone else. This is extremely dangerous just check the stats!!! It is one thing when you are alone in the car however, even then,you may injure or worse kill another driver. If you are responsible for other people in a van you should be more responsible and professional. I am rating this tour 5 stars because all other components deserve 5 stars and it is unfair not to give credit where credit is due
