Riding the helcopter itself was a new experience and it was amazing for all my family. But the time is so short.

Very polite, professional pilot who made us feel welcome. This was my first time in a helicopter and I had a great time. I would definitely recommend this company and we will be back next time we are in Lake Tahoe.

Mixed my guests still enjoyed the experience but did not get what I had booked for them

I purchased this for my Brother and his daughter (my niece) They enjoyed the overall experience but I was disappointed they were not taken to emerald bay as the description indicated. They were flown over the casino’s instead. They were on vacation visiting me & I purchased the Helicopter emerald bay flight for them so they could see it from the air since I was having boat problems and was unable to take them by water.

Excellent adventure! Panoramic views of Lake Tahoe. The pilot 👨🏼‍✈️Was knowledgeable about the area and provided amazing information about South Lake Tahoe. The helicopter 🚁 was safe and comfortable. I was fortunate to get the front seat because it has the best view. The headsets provided noise cancellation. There was some turbulence but not for long. Loved this unique experience! Loved the views from above!

Excellent service. We couldn’t make it the day before due to strong winds. Marius, the pilot called to reschedule the next day. Great experience, we saw south Lake Tahoe from above.
