I took my daughter on the San Francisco tour as a special adventure. We were thrilled with the experience. Our pilot and guide was great offering us not only great views but also information on the city and nearby coast. I admit to being a bit hesitant about the flight. It was smooth and just fantastic. Friends that saw our photos were so amazed at all that we saw. I would recommend this highly.
Fly with you above San Francisco and the Bay it was an unforgettable emotion..... it was so cool. The pilot was so kind and very good! This experience will be in my heart forever. Thank you
What a spectacular way to end my family vacation in San Francisco. John made my family comfortable with the safety instructions and his overall positive attitude made the flight so educational. It was truly one of the highlights of our first trip to California.
this custom trip was the best and I look forward to working with John in the future for more fabulous photography. John and R66 are the best for my needs!!
Thank you very much tour for us.

Oh, my goodness — I've used Bay Aerial Helicopter Tours at least a dozen times since 2007, and John DuGan is simply the best — a no-nonsense pro, and personable, too — these days I consider him my trusted friend.
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!!
