Amazing views

The views are amazing, The pilot amazing, very nice and helpful. We loved it. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience.
Worth it
, Apr 2022
The tour was great. I'd say the price is slightly steep but they also make it a private tour for you only so it is definitely worth it. I think playing music while flying will make the experience more enjoyable.
Do it!

Really a ton of fun. Loved our pilot. We saw stunning sites but how can you miss with Lake Tahoe! Splurge and live large!
Must do experience in Lake Tahoe

I booked this trip as a gift for my girlfriend’s birthday. It was both our first time on a helicopter and it was an amazing experience. Our pilot Marius was a great pilot and the ride was smoother than we expected. Highly recommend!

Awesome experience, friendly staff. The 30 minute tour is the Best because you get to see most of the lakes and mountains up close. Highly recommended.
