    Collection from just across from our hotel was convenient. The transportation took under 30 minutes and was very relaxed. We had to wait for the first group to return in the hospitality lounge, both drinks and snacks were complimentary, and gratefully received. The helicopter flight was our first, and wow, what a way to start! The pilot made us feel at ease and gave excellent commentary throughout. We had a thrill (fright for my wife) with a military plane taking a scenic tour of the bridge and Bay Area, which certainly caught our pilot out! Flew over and under the Golden Gate Bridge, over Alcatraz and hovered approximately over the Bay Bridge to give us a 360° view which was utterly incredible. We returned over the financial district and Oracle Park to the airport for a truly exhilarating flight conclusion. Amazing value!
