  • Our first experience in a helicopter was this short trip over Tahoe's Emerald Bay. It was great - easy to park, get ready and go. The pilot pointed out some interesting facts as we flew over some beautiful terrain and the blue and emerald water of south lake Tahoe. We got some great photos and video. Highly recommended

  • My husband, 11 y.o. son, and I greatly enjoyed the helicopter tour. It was my son's first time in a helicopter and he was a little anxious at first, but the expert pilot made him feel at ease. it was a wonderful shared experience for our family to view the beauty of Lake Tahoe from above. We are planning on coming back to do the Waterfall helicopter tour in the future.

  • Highly recommended!! Wonderful welcoming people and great tour!
