Fly over San Francisco in a helicopter and discover its emblematic landmarks from the sky!

A shuttle will take you from central San Francisco to the heliport, where this exceptional sightseeing tour will begin. You’ll take off in a helicopter for an unforgettable tour of the city, equipped with a headset that enables you to communicate with the pilot and other passengers.

Soft music is played throughout the flight, while you soar above San Francisco’s must-see sites including Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz Prison Island and Bay Bridge. You'll also see the distinct districts of the city center such as Chinatown, the Financial District, and Fisherman’s Wharf.

It is also possible to extend the tour to include a trip down the Pacific Coast to the seaside village of Sausalito.


When you book, you will be asked to choose one of the following packages:

Standard flight (15-20 minutes): spend 20 minutes flying high above the city’s major sites, including Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, Alcatraz prison-island, Union Square, Chinatown, and many more…

Extended flight (25-30 minutes): during the extended 30-minute flight, you’ll see everything on the standard flight route plus the seaside town of Sausalito on Angel Island, from where you can admire the Californian Pacific coast while soaring above the ocean.
