I saw a deal on the US version of Groupon for a flight for 2 and 2 photo’s, we couldn't book it through groupon as our credit card was not registered in the US so I contacted them directly to see if they would match the deal and they were more than happy to do so. The pier is along... More

Possibly the Christmas gift of a lifetime, we had a January helicopter tour of Manhattan in early January. We awoke that morning to blizzard like conditions and trepidation of what would happen to the tour. We called and were advised they were still flying, which we thought meant a tour with no view, but on arrival were pleased that this... More

This was the best thing I have ever done. The pilot was wonderful and I was lucky enough to sit in the front. This made our last freezing cold day in New York the best.

We decided to take a helicopter ride over the sights of NY city due to the extremely long lines waiting to see the major attractions. After looking online we selected a private 4 person tour for 30 minutes. We would all recommend this choice and Zip Tours!! The pilot was informative and very friendly and there was also had a...

This was one of most amazing things I've done in my life. I thought I would be afraid, yet I wasn't in the least. The Pilot made me feel so very comfortable and was genuinely sweet. The view was positively gorgeous. I loved it. Can't wait to go again!

The tour itself is excellent and covers everything you expect from a helicopter tour. DO NOT get drawn into the extra video tour...... definite mis-selling. you think the $69 covers the still photos also.... think again, they want an extra $20 per picture after the tour. the 100's of pictures sold before the flight are pictures of new York only...

Personally I am no good why it comes to flying but I can honestly say that my nerves were put to ease straight from... More

My wife & I visited New York city as a 30th Wedding Anniversary treat to ourselves. Our first full day there coincided with my birthday. I had never been for a flight in a helicopter before despite gaining my Private Pilot's Licence for fixed wing aircraft in 1990. Given the time and the place, it would have been daft not... More

We did the grand island tour and arranged the helicopter ride has a surprise for my mum who's birthday it was. The helicopter tour was genuinely one of the best things I have ever done although it's not the cheapest thing to do when in NYC I would say just do it. We did the helicopter tour on our second...
