Our Private Tour Flies Over Long Beach
The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach are impressive and their combined enormity can really be appreciated from the air. Our private tour of Los Angeles by helicopter surprises our guests when we tell them about the importance of shipping to the economy of Los Angeles, California and the United States. Even more eyecatching, though, is the stately Queen Mary moored just south of the giant ports in a harbor adjacent to the city of Long Beach. The great sea vessel is now a hotel, conference center and museum very much worth visiting, or, as many of our private tour guests do, staying at while in Los Angeles. The ship has 346 unique and distinct staterooms as well as multiple restaurants and cafés. As you can see in the above aerial photograph from a recent tour flight the Queen Mary is right beside one of the local cruise ship terminals where today’s ocean liners stop on their journeys up and down the Pacific Coast. The Long Beach harbor is visible as is the aquarium and city cultural center. We are always happy to meet our Los Angeles private tour guests at the Queen Mary for an excursion by air and/or ground all around Los Angeles. See the studios, the celebrity homes, the museums and even explore downtown for an exciting look at this great city on the sea.
Our Private Tour Highly Recommends a Tour Here
Flying over the Queen Mary docked permanently in Long Beach, California, is a truly impressive sight on a helicopter tour filled with impressive sights. This elegant and stately floating hotel and convention center, museum and entertainment destination stands out amidst the flotilla of cargo and cruise ships coming and going from the twin ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. The Queen Mary is a perfect location for weddings and graduation parties and other important events (themselves deserving a special private tour). We begin many of our private Los Angeles tours here with Queen Mary Hotel guests as often as we meet cruise ships in nearby San Pedro. We also come to the Queen Mary during our custom luxury tours to visit the grand old ship and enjoy a spot of tea with Princess Diana (Diana: Legacy of a Princess is an ongoing exhibit) after visiting the museum on board.
The RMS Queen Mary, a former proud member of the Cunard cruise line, made her final journey across the Atlantic in 1967 and is now permanently berthed in Long Beach, California. Here the graceful ocean liner serves as a hotel and convention center hosting public and private events throughout the year. There are tours of the ship, a museum currently hosting an exhibit dedicated to Princess Diana, and constantly changing exhibits and events to entertain and enthrall guests. With fantastic (and different) accommodations, quality restaurants and cafes, you can plan a vacation to stay in the area aboard the great ship. If you decide on their first cabin accommodations then you should also consider a private luxury tour with us to see not only more of Long Beach but enjoy a ride up to Hollywood and Beverly Hills to sightsee: movie and television studios, celebrity homes, notorious locations you will recognize and get to enjoy in person. Luxury private touring is a wonderful thing to do when visiting Los Angeles — we have so much to offer!
