    Having a view of Lake Tahoe from a helicopter is something everyone needs to experience. What really made the ride memorable for me (as a solo rider) was the pilot, Ian. He was so easy to talk to and I felt safe. It was the coolest experience ever. The views were insanely beautiful and Ian made sure I was able to see everything and he educated me the entire time about all the cool spots to see or visit while I was in town. Glen was also such a gem. He was there to greet me when I arrived and he walked me out, making sure I had the best time. Overall, I would recommend my experience a millions times over again. Can’t express my gratitude enough for such a classy, fun, beautiful and safe ride over the most beautiful lake in our country. Thanks Ian and Glenn!!! 3 Michelle Thornton from NJ

    This tour was awesome. We'd never been in a helicopter before, and our pilot prepared us well for each thing that would happen, in addition to pointing out Lake Tahoe's many beautiful spots with interesting background information. We would do this again in a heartbeat.

    The views were amazing and the pilot was extremely friendly. They took good care of my parents who were flying like that in a helicopter for the first time. They had a wonderful time and they loved the experience. The views were amazing too and like any other person, I'd definitely like a bit more time. But, can't complain about the experience at all. Totally recommended.
