It’s easy to get bored with your hometown after you’ve been there long enough. But sometimes all we need is a little change of perspective to help you remember why you settled there in the first place. At FunSherpa, we can set you up with a helicopter ride and tour in your city or in a new place that you want to explore for the first time. These are a few of the exciting helicopter rides that offer stunning views and lots of photo opportunities.

See the Chicago Skyline Above the Skyscrapers

Rise high above the skyscrapers to see amazing views of Chicago’s architecture from a helicopter. You’ll be guided by Chicago’s premier air tour company and see top sights like the John Hancock Building, Navy Pier, Millennium Park, and the Chicago River. You’ll also get a unique perspective on the city’s diverse neighborhoods as you venture out from downtown.

Explore the Grand Canyon from a Helicopter

When it comes to helicopter rides, there really are few more scenic rides in the world than the Grand Canyon. Our Grand Canyon All American Helicopter Tour leaves from Las Vegas and flies 45 minutes each way to reach the canyon. The helicopter will fly over the gorgeous West Rim, passing over Lake Mead, Lake Las Vegas, and the Hoover Dam. You can listen to a recorded commentary about what you’re seeing and enjoy a delicious champagne picnic when you land deep inside the Grand Canyon.

Stop for Lunch in Sausalito from a Helicopter

Relax from the comfort of an unforgettable helicopter tour as you see the scenic landscape of the beautiful Sausalito region in Northern California. This is an excellent day tour trip from San Francisco because it includes lunch in Sausalito and a ferry ride back to San Francisco at the end of the trip. The helicopter ride each way is about 20 minutes, and you’re welcome to explore Sausalito’s boutique shops and art galleries after lunch.

Check Out the Hollywood Strip from Above

Nearly everyone who visits Los Angeles has seen the famous Hollywood sign, but few have seen it up close and from the air. Take a 20-minute Hollywood helicopter tour and you’ll be traveling in style, with a stocked minibar and plenty of snacks. On this tour, you’ll get a new perspective of the Los Angeles skyscrapers, the Hollywood Strip, Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, the Walk of Fame, and all the new developments around the city. So pick your feet up off the ground and get your head in the clouds!
