Scheila and Albert were exceptional tour guides. We had a 7:15-7:45 Shoreline tour and the sunset was at 7:30. We flew up over a bunch of celeb houses, Malibu, shoreline, Santa Monica... and the sky was orange. Definitely would do this tour again.

I surprised my husband with tickets to do this and it ended up being the highlight of our trip! We were both blown away and getting to see LA from above was exquisite. This is a MUST do if in the LA area!

No doubt this is an amazing time. I don't even need to explain. The pilot is a true pro, som not to worry. Beware of cloudy or foggy times though. Think about day vs night. I think day is better. Nights show more pretty lights,...More

We booked the tour online. It was our first helicopter ride, so we were a bit apprehensive, but our fears were taken over by ecstasy as soon as we met our pilot. He was a humble, charming and enthusiast guy. We were totally mesmerized by...More

The price from LAX to Catalina is $1500. We do not go in to Avalon, we land at the 'Airport in the Sky' Catalina Airport. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Thank you!
