Wasn't sure about doing this but it was the highlight of our trip, well organised and stunning when you are in the air

Wow, wow wow. Still on an epic high from the most incredible helicopter tour. It was my first time and I'm already hooked. Captain Andrew Woods was absolutely fantastic, not only as a pilot but as a guide too. He maintained a perfect balance of engagement and humour, and there was no doubt that we all felt incredibly safe in... More

Booked the helicopter tour for March 18th. It was a fabulous experience. Our pilot Andrew Woods was brilliant. I was upfront with Andrew and he was extremely friendly and kept me well informed of everything going on around me and the views were spectacular. I can certainly fully recommend this experience to anyone visiting New York. I'm terrified of flying... More

Set the stage -- after all, it's New York City: the seas part, the sun shines brightly over the horizon and Captain Andrew Woods welcomes his travels from all over the world! Wow! Wow! Wow! There are no do-overs in life and I grabbed the golden ring, the silver bullet, the big apple, the whole enchilada on this one. .... More

Had planned this trip as a birthday surprise and we were not disappointed! Amazing experience - incredible views of Manhattan and the trip was made even more special and enjoyable by our lovely pilot Andrew who made the experience even more fun! Incredible and well worth the money!

My trip was in May 2013. After 3 days of delays due to bad weather we finally got the go ahead and it was worth the wait! I was very nervous with a few dark clouds in the sky but I cannot thank Andrew enough for easing my nerves. With Alicia Keys - Empire State of Mind playing the view... More

We were so lucky to have a beautiful sunny day for our 15 minute trip around Manhattan on board a stunning Zip Heli. It was easy to locate the heliport on South Street, opposite the NY Vietnam Veterans Memorial & beside the Staten Island Ferry terminal. Everyone was friendly & professional. I was seated in the front beside the pilot,... More

We bought a 30 helicopter ride for our kids as a holiday present. The staff was GREAT, making sure that our kids were safe (we did not take the flight) and had a good time. The photos we got back and the smiles proved it was a great ride. My only critique is that the flight is a bit pricey.... More

This was a "spur of the momment" decision to do the helicopter tour and it well worth it! Wanted to go to Statue of Liberty on Christmas Eve but the queues were too long, so just along from there was the heli-decks - we didnt need to be asked twice by the guy outside - went straight in - paid...
