We went with the first tour “Romeo” and it was probably the funnest 7 minutes of our weekend trip. Roy and Matthew were pleasant and professional and made it a smooth experience. It was our first time in a helicopter and it won’t be our last, we’re definitely coming back and opting for one of the longer tours.

About your guide
Why Customers Love Helicopter Big Bear
Highly recommend it! The staff are very friendly and the helicopter ride was smooth. My S.O. and I did the Tour Romeo and the sights were gorgeous. We will definitely come back to experience a longer helicopter ride.
This tour was amazing. We had a time crunch and just did the quick 7 minute tour. And it was awesome, lots of pictures, scenery and all around enjoyable. It lead our conversation the whole night. Something about being up in the air over Big Bear is just so peaceful and beautiful. We highly recommend this place and plan on doing a longer tour next time. The entire staff was friendly and welcoming, the airport is so small that it doesnt feel like an airport at all. We have 1 out of 13 complete. See you all next time around!!
