Beverly Hills and Hollywood: Helicopter Tour

2. Beverly Hills and Hollywood: Helicopter Tour

Enjoy an exciting tour in a private helicopter over Beverly Hills and Hollywood. On this 20-minute tour, you'll get an intimate look into the lives of celebrities, while listening to true stories from your friendly pilot. Begin your tour at the world-class Burbank Airport, a stone's throw from Universal and Warner Bros Studios. All guests are asked to arrive at least thirty minutes before the start of their tour in order to check-in with the flight team and get situated for their exclusive sightseeing experience. Lift off from the ground and soar through the air as you climb over the Hollywood Hills and across the LA basin. As you pass over Universal Studios, you might just make out the small crowds lined up for butterbeer at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter or see the gentle smoke rising from the stunt shows and animal experiences. Your tour will pass right by the iconic Hollywood Sign, offering you an opportunity to snap a photo (or a selfie if you're quick) from a vantage point view that few others get to see. From there, it's over Mulholland Drive and around Laurel Canyon, an exclusive, historical enclave once home to some of the greatest names in the music industry. Pass over Beverly Hills and the ultra-wealthy Bel-Air, and see the $90-million dollar mansion purchased by Jay-Z and Beyonce in 2017. Each tour has no more than 4 people to ensure every seat is the best seat and includes noise-canceling headphones that allow you to listen along to your pilot's running commentary as you whirl through the air on this exclusive celebrity helicopter adventure. For an additional fee, you can book out the tour as private or include the sunset option to add a world-class sunset to the already incredible experience.

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.

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).

What people are saying about Universal Studios Hollywood

It was wonderful! Seeing Hollywood sign from a helicopter was like being in a movie or something. My 5 year-old son was also very excited and wanted more flight. And the pilot and other staff are nice and helpful. If you want to try it, it’ll be better to book prior. Because the helicopter company needs to adjust the flight time, and the time could change from what you book at online booking site.

It was an amazing trip with an amazing pilot. We where so excited. Thanks to our pilot for a safe trip. Impatiently waiting for our next fly with incredible OrbicAir. Thanks you all guys.
