I took my parents on a surprise helicopter ride over Emerald Bay when they visited me in Nevada. Clint was our pilot and he was awesome! He taught us a lot about the copter, the lake, and surrounding community! My Dad sat up front with him and enjoyed his company. Definitely a different way to show off Lake Tahoe and... More

Helicopter tours are obviously based on weather permitting and it turned out that the day I scheduled was kind of a stormy day.... More

If you're reading reviews because you are a bit nervous, a huge scaredy cat, or downright swearing you will NEVER get on one of these (but you kinda want to)....don't give in to those thoughts! I am seriously in the huge scaredy cat category (complete with nightmares the night before, shaking on the trip over, and last minute saying in... More

I have traveled extensively but I have... More
