Helicopter Tours

See San Francisco from the air! Awe-inspiring views of the most beautiful city in the world are made possible by helicopter. We've combined these helicopter tours with our other great San Francisco Bay Area tours, so you can see Northern California from above and on the ground.

Board a Bell Jet helicopter for your exciting adventure above San Francisco. Musical background, choreographed to your flight, accompanies spontaneous narration by your professionally trained pilot. Take in the renowned hills of San Francisco and the striking cityscape like few ever can.

In the distance… you’ll see the surrounding Bay Area communities stretching as far as the eye can see; famous landmarks, including Alcatraz Island & the spectacular bridges spanning the Bay from a whole new perspective.

Travel Across the Golden Gate Bridge and through the rugged coastal mountains of Marin County. Experience the magnificent views of the San Francisco Bay and valleys where the Coastal Miwok once lived. Our first stop is Muir Woods National Monument, where ancient groves of Giant Redwoods (Sequoia Sempervirens) tower over Redwood Creek. Our 1¼-hour stop is the most time offered of any other tour company. Muir Woods entrance fee included. 

Next, visit the beautiful coastal town of Sausalito, a gorgeous Mediterranean-style village, with quaint shop, art galleries, and waterfront restaurants. If a one-hour stop in Sausalito isn’t enough for you, extend your stay in Sausalito and return by ferry to San Francisco at your leisure. Ferry cost not included.
