    Helicopter/ Sunset Cruise Feedback
    , Feb 2020
    Helicopter tour was amazing but short. I wish we went around the city twice. Everyone was so busy taking photos, we didn't fully get to take in and enjoy the views. The Dinner cruise was okay, food was below average. I would have rather just did the helicopter tour then went out to dinner somewhere near the bay. Overall fun day but could have been modified a little to make it great.

    Hi Laura, Thank you for your feedback about our Dinner Cruise package. We do offer our Vista Grande Tour, which is 10-min longer of flight time. If you ever book with us again, please contact us directly. We will also relay your feedback to our dinner cruise partner. Thank you for sharing your experience with us.
    So fun

    Nice experience. Paul and Dylan were very great servers! Beautiful views. Unfortunately, the chicken was very dry, and the fish. The sauce saved the fish, but the chicken was not good. Other than that, the food was AMAZING!

    I am still floating after our helicopter ride! The views were spectacular and the experience was utterly amazing! The pilot was awesome and a great narrator. Dinner on the Hornblower did not disappoint! The food was delicious and the service was top notch.

    The helicopter ride was fantastic! Our pilot was funny and informative. Flying over and below the Golden Gate Bridge was truly memorable. The harbor cruise showed us some beautiful sights but it was too long, too noisy and the food was not very good.
