Awesome from pick up to drop off. The young lady that picked us up was great. Now on to the flight. This is a must do on anyone's bucket list. I flew my family from Alabama for this adventure so my daughters 13th B'day, she want to see the Golden Gate Bridge. The flight was smooth and informative from start to finish. Daniel was our guide and pilot. This man is an incredible pilot and great guide. He is full of information or BS but you would never know difference. I have flown a lot and he smooth. Thank you to everyone for making this a great experience. Daniel we are not from the UK straight out of South Alabama.

My 15 year old grandson was thrilled with this experience. Said the best part of his whole trip was the Seaplane ride. I have gone on a helicopter ride before over Niagara Falls, but this topped that by far. The pilot was so knowledgeable and entertaining during the ride while pointing out landmarks. Well worth the time and money.

The staff was wonderful. The photo that was taken of me afterwards with the plane is one of the best photos that my fiancee and I have taken together. San Francisco history was explained during the tour and many tourist destinations were pointed out.
