Beverly Hills and Hollywood: Helicopter Tour

1. Beverly Hills and Hollywood: Helicopter Tour

Enjoy an exciting tour in a private helicopter over Beverly Hills and Hollywood. On this tour, you'll get an intimate look into the lives of celebrities, while listening to true stories from your friendly pilot. Begin your tour at the world-class Burbank Airport, a stone's throw from Universal and Warner Bros Studios. All guests are asked to arrive at least thirty minutes before the start of their tour in order to check-in with the flight team and get situated for their exclusive sightseeing experience. Lift off from the ground and soar through the air as you climb over the Hollywood Hills and across the LA basin. As you pass over Universal Studios, you might just make out the small crowds lined up for butterbeer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or see the gentle smoke rising from the stunt shows and animal experiences. Your tour will pass right by the iconic Hollywood Sign, offering you an opportunity to snap a photo (or a selfie if you're quick) from a vantage point view that few others get to see. From there, it's over Mulholland Drive and around Laurel Canyon, an exclusive, historical enclave once home to some of the greatest names in the music industry. Pass over Beverly Hills and the ultra-wealthy Bel-Air, and see the $90-million dollar mansion purchased by Jay-Z and Beyonce in 2017. Every seat is the best seat on a tour that includes noise-canceling headphones that allow you to listen along to your pilot's running commentary as you whirl through the air on this exclusive celebrity helicopter adventure. For an additional fee, you can book out the tour as private or include the sunset option to add a world-class sunset to the already incredible experience.

Great experience, did this with my sister as a last minute treat! Booked the night before and it was very easy to book online and confirmed straight away. Great communication and good instructions about what to expect and where to go. Arrived earlier than arranged time and guys were great about this and let us fly earlier. Friendly, efficient, organised and very helpful. Would definitely recommend this company for your helicopter ride. Couldn’t have had a better experience than we did and one we will remember for a long time. Pilot (wish we could remember his name!) was confident, reassuring and friendly and knew lots about Beverley hills and Hollywood area which made the trip extra interesting. Overall a brilliant experience with a great team.

Everyone at the tour office was polite and friendly when we arrived and they offered us coffee water and told us to relax. We waited like 15 minutes at their waiting room and we went on with our tour. The pilot was great and showed us all celebrities homes that he knew of and the Hollywood sign just looks amazing from the air. I recommend the tour to everyone…
