It was a wonderful experience flying over San Francisco and its adjoining areas with my fiancé on her birthday. The views were amazing, our pilot David was really good, he gave a tour in great detail and was very cordial and funny! We would definitely like to recommend this to anyone.

It was supposed to be a helicopter tour but turned out to be a plane. It was my wife and I and the pilot Dave. He was great. I was able to get some great pictures and enjoyed the ride as well. Would recommend this tour to anyone. Thanks Dave.
Wonderful air tour by Mr.Glen

The service of epic company, we are very impressed. We have received privacy and warm and romantic service. The pilot (Mr.Glen) took us through the beautiful scenery and introduced us to the sights of San Francisco in a corner we had never seen. We feel happiness and warmth. The captain was a very professional pilot. We recommend epic as a company of choice. If you are looking for a memorable trip When you visit San Francisco we recommend epic for your option/peeranat@Thailand

A nice surprise!
Jessica_V, Mar 2022
Initially thought we were going on a helicopter ride but to our surprise ended up on a small plane and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. We got to see so much in the amount of time we were in the air and really enjoyed it. Our pilot David was very nice, friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Overall extremely happy and hope to someday book a flight with David again.
Amazing Flight over San Francisco and the Bay

We had the perfect afternoon. Dave made sure he hit all the highlights! Thanks Dave for making it such a memorable experience for my daughter and I. Awesome!!!

Panha was an amazing pilot. He explained everything about the aircraft, where we were flying and made us feel super safe. His knowledge of the area was superb and he truly tried to customize our flight to see our favorite sights. Would book again in a heartbeat.

Great customer service

We were not able to fly unfortunately due to weather but I have this company 5 stars because they have excellent customer service! He attempted to fly us on another day during our stay and allowed us to choose a time that worked for us. Very accommodating. We will definitely be using them the next time we are in town to get that tour!
