Had a blast, better than I could have imagined, the pilot, whose name I am really sorry I did not catch, was great. We had actually scheduled the tour at 10 am, but weather conditions were not the best and they were really accommodating for a reschedule.

Clearly getting older I am losing my nerve, as I can tell you I was very nervous the higher we got, but don't let that put you off, as the pilot was so wonderful and I felt at ease with him, despite being incredibly nervous the further we got into the flight. The views though are incredible, we opted for... More

Easy to get to...we were up and hovering over the city and the coastline with ease. Our pilot, Gary, was great at pointing out many areas of interest. Nice helicopter...highly recommended tour.

My 14year-old grandson and I were looking for a once-in-a-lifetime private helicopter experience in Los Angeles -- and found it in the redoubtable Roscoe of Elite Helicopter Tours. On one of the city's all-time most sparkling July days, we enjoyed a magical private tour of what the novelist Michael Connelly recently called LA's "seemingly infinite vastness." We went everywhere, from... More

My wife and I ordered a 'red carpet' tour, a trip around all the greatest things that LA can offer. The pilot was a very clever man, a experienced guy who showed us so much he could in the 90 minutes we was in the air. Top service and a experience for life!

As one who always likes to get up high above a place, whether by tree, tower or mountain - this topped it all. Cannot rate this experience highly enough - it blew our minds. Completely worth the cost - and even then some. We absolutely loved it. It was just the two of us, and the pilot, which was a... More

Having just come back from our first visit to LA this helicopter trip was certainly one of the highlights of the holiday. Our pilot Gary was extremely knowledgeable and pointed out all of the sights including the homes of Will Smith, Tom Cruise etc. It was a beautiful clear and sunny day so the visibility was amazing and it gave...

We did the Deluxe Helicopter Tour and it's hard to put into words how amazing the experience is. Out pilot Gary was friendly and very knowledgeable. He was constantly pointing out places of interest and celebrity properties (of which there are an abundance!!). We had perfect clear conditions and saw pretty much the whole city. If you're planning a trip... More
