Empire Tour

The Empire Tour gives you a new and unique perspective of San Diego County and southern Riverside County.


Southern California is known for its beaches, history, and wineries. The Empire Tour gives you a new and unique perspective of San Diego County and southern Riverside County.


The tour starts by taking you down the coastline from Oceanside Harbor all the way to the shores of La Jolla. Along the way, the helicopter will pass over four natural reserve lagoons: Buena Vista, Agua Hedionda, Batiquitos, and San Elijo.


At the shoreline of La Jolla, the helicopter will turn inland over the hearts of Rancho Santa Fe and Escondido. On this trek, you will get the opportunity to fly directly over one of SoCal’s most famous lakes, Lake Hodges (don’t miss your chance to get a picture of the dam!). You will also get to see a few other lakes, including Lake Wohlford, and the peak of Palomar Mountain.

The Empire Tour will then take you past some of the most historical sights in SoCal including the San Pasqual Battlefield, Lawrence Welk Village, and Rainbow Bridge. You will then follow the I-15 Freeway through Rainbow to Temecula. Be prepared to count how many wineries you can see! The helicopter will directly overfly five wineries with plenty more to see in the distance.


From the wineries , you will overfly Old Town Temecula, which is a fantastic escape from modern city life while still offering all of the amenities. The tour will leave Old Town Temecula and head for the hills to offer you a view of houses worth millions and millions of dollars. The helicopter will then fly directly over Fallbrook, meet up with Highway 76, and end with a flight directly over the most historic landmark in Oceanside, Mission San Luis Rey.


The Empire Tour is the best way to gain a unique perspective of Southern California and all that it has to offer. Rise above the crowd and the traffic!
