Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 1,989 reviews

It was wonderful! Seeing Hollywood sign from a helicopter was like being in a movie or something. My 5 year-old son was also very excited and wanted more flight. And the pilot and other staff are nice and helpful. If you want to try it, it’ll be better to book prior. Because the helicopter company needs to adjust the flight time, and the time could change from what you book at online booking site.

This was my first time in LA and this tour ry helped with the overview of the LA city and got a great understanding of the city.In 7 hours I learnt a lot.

Amazing experience. Staff was great and pilot was really friendly and patient and let us take lot of pictures. Our kids really enjoyed it as well.

Very nice and outgoing crew. Knowledgeable in the area. Great experience would definitely go again.

Best experience and time I’ve had, and great way to learn about the place
