Flying with the Birds above the Los Angeles Traffic
No Traffic in the Sky for Our Private Tour
Our private Los Angeles tour guests are almost always aware of how congested L.A. traffic can be but until they experience it they have no idea how bad bad can be. One way to beat the traffic is to join the birds above in one of our luxury tour helicopters. The largest aircraft we fly for our custom helicopter tour of the city (generally in combination with a ground tour) is a Sikorsky S76. Leather seats for six, the same number we carry in our luxury SUVs. At the helipad we simply transfer everyone from the car to the helicopter and off we go. The aerial portion of our tours lasts an hour or so as we circumnavigate the city. Our guests enjoy birdseye views of downtown and the historic core of the city as well as the new L.A. Live entertainment and sports district. Then on to USC and the Los Angeles Coliseum, over the Baldwin hills to the coast at Marina del Rey. We dip down over the sea and ride the waves, wave to the whales, and fly along the sandy groomed beaches to Malibu before turning inland again to explore the Santa Monica Mountains and the canyon homes above the sea. Other notable sights along the way include the Getty Museums (yes, both of them), the Sunset Strip, Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood Sign, Griffith Observatory and Dodgers Stadium. Our guides point out celebrity mansions along the way, too. Of course, the freeways connecting Los Angeles to the rest of southern California and the city boulevards are all inching along as we cruise comfortably above them.
