Full description
Built in 1923 to showcase the new real estate crawling up the hillsides just north of Los Angeles, the Hollywood sign towers above the sprawling city and suburbs of America's second largest city. While millions of travelers visit the sign every year, few have the opportunity offered in this once-in-a-lifetime helicopter tour of the sign and surrounding hillsides. After checking in at Burbank airport and coordinating with your hospitable flight team, your 15-minute tour will take off and cross the hills, heading towards the sign.  Enjoy unique views of the surrounding celebrity-filled neighborhoods dotting Mulholland Drive, Laurel Canyon, and downtown Los Angeles. Keep your camera ready as you snap photos and listen to the commentary provided by your helpful pilot. As you pass the sign, your pilot will go out of their way to provide you the best angle and view to take incredible photos. If you select the sunset option, you'll enjoy a truly majestic California view with the mountains stretching in all directions and the sun setting behind the Pacific Ocean (this option is limited, so book fast).

Well worth the money! Our pilot was so so lovely! Went over local neighbourhoods and shown us tourist attractions from the sky, pointed out some famous people's houses, straight upto the Hollywood sign, got some great photos from the sky and the pilot took some photos of us in and outside the helicopter! Got a free photo in a cardboard "I flew LA" frame which was cute! Would defo recommend, we got there a little early but the pilot was happy to go whenever we were! Free refreshments at the base and other staff there were lovely!

It was a great, first time experience. If you want to enjoy the ride with a bigger party, you’re gonna have to invest more into the tour with a bigger helicopter. It was perfect for our party so no complaints there! We got a chance to tour over Burbank, passed the famous Hollywood sign, Universal Studio and the Warner Bros studio as well. It was a great flight and Anton was a great tour guide!
