This is a must do experience. Great views of San Francisco, Alcatraz, and Flying under the Golden Gate Bridge We had a Wide range of weather conditions – Tourist and Photographers – this was a dream environment. Enjoy whatever is going your way. Rain, Fog, Clearing up and Sunny and Rainbow The Length of the trip is around 30 min. Allow for several hours from pickup to drop off. We were picked up and dropped off at the side entrance to the Hilton Hotel. My son did this tour the week before and decides to surprise me for my Birthday. Reasonable If you enjoyed the tour, don’t forget to Tip The Pilot -Brock – very nice, skilled and professional pleasant – nailed the landing on the tow sled Jamie Logistics – Pickup – on time – well organized, great to chat with Bell 407 Helicopter – equipment is very modern and new and in great shape. Very Smooth Get set ahead of time. Prepare your cameras and have them ready to go when you board. Photo tips - If you are using a DSLR, select one lens with a wide range and Image Stabilization - VR 18 to 200 mm Use your smart phone for video especially for the spoiler alert, look up when the bridge is over top.

Sensational !!!!! Memories to last a lifetime. I don't think it gets any better then seeing SF from the sky and a trip over AND under the golden gate bridge. Breathtaking. Whilst is expensive it is worth it. There was no upselling and the trip was as easy as a pick up from the hilarious coach driver Shepherd, to an already turning and burning helicopter. Straight in and lifted straight off. Its a luxury helicopter with plenty of room and everyone gets a view. Ron the pilot was full of great information and did a 360 of the city for us so everyone got a great view. On landing some obligatory tourist pics and then off we went. We got dropped at the pier for Alcatraz and off we went on that adventure (see other review). If you have the money to burn do this tour.

Brock was incredibly professional and caring. I absolutely recommend this activity. The flight under and over the Golden Gate Bridge was amazing and can only be done by helicopter. The machine is a Bell 407 and is immaculate. You feel very safe, especially the way Brock explains each action he takes in flight. Very cool well done
