The helicopter ride was very comfortable and the pilot John was excellent in terms of courtesy, professionalism and being informative throughout the ride. We experienced a comprehensive aerial view of the Bay Area. I would absolutely recommend this ride to others.

Awesome flight from an amazing pilot! Would definitely recommend John (and already have) to others!
This was a spur of the moment tour, it was available, John was very accommodating, knowledgeable and the length of tour was superb for the cost. We would do this again in a heartbeat!!
Our tour was incredible, and the pilot (John) was excellent both as pilot and tour guide. You can tell he has been doing this for awhile because the ride was so smooth even though he was narrating the flight and communicating with ATC. It was the ride of a lifetime!
John did a great job in making us feel comfortable on board his helicopter. Although we live locally, he pointed out different areas in the Bay area that we didn't know. John was very engaging and fun especially when he was demonstrating his speed being close to the water. You don't realize how fast you are going being up a couple of thousand feet. Overall, a super experience and would recommend using Bay Aerial since it is a one hour tour. It is a little more expensive but for a hour viewing the highlights of San Francisco Bay Area, I would recommend highly. Thanks for the blast, John!!
Incredible experience, even better than advertised. We would definitely recommend John and his team every time.
great flight, friendly service - lots of fun
Cant think of any one other than John to fly me around Brian B. Williams CEO 3DP International Inc.
