    Pamela_D, May 2022
    Our helicopter ride was most memorable and exciting. Matt and Bryce were very professional and accommodating and showed us a phenomenal time. I told us very interesting facts about Lake Tahoe, showed us a home that was worth $100 million, most expensive house in America. Made us laugh tipped us sideways so we could get a better view of the little coves and waterfalls. Gave us probably 10 minutes longer than we paid for a trip and it was thrilling to say the least. When we went back to the office we bought sweatshirts to remember the event and they’re wonderful beautiful! I can’t say enough about this trip and Matt and Bryce we tipped them well 😎
    Amazing Views!

    I’ve been to Lake Tahoe multiple times during different seasons, so I thought I’d seen all it had to offer. But this helicopter ride was absolutely breathtaking and I was amazed at the aerial views that I’ve been missing! I highly recommend to any visitors in the area! Our pilot Davis was also very kind and knowledgeable, overall great experience!

    Riding the helicopter with an awesome pilot: Marius Wheather was’t on our side but he made it work. We will fly again with Viatours.

    Trip cancelled
    Greg_B, Feb 2021
    They called to cancel our trip a few hours prior to scheduled time, was told because of unscheduled maintenance. Disappointing.
    Response from Host, Feb 2021
    We apologize for the inconvenience. Unscheduled maintenance is very disappointing to us as well. When mechanical issues arise, we always place the safety of our passengers before profit and take the less desirable route of cancelling or rescheduling until mechanical issues can be resolved.
    I love it
    Nabila_M, Jan 2021
    I love the experience was about 25 minutes but I really enjoyed it. Thanks to my pilot regards Nabila Martin
