My husband and I booked this tour through British Airways when we booked our 5 day trip to NYC. The helicopter tour was on the day of my 30th birthday, I got to sit in the front with the pilot who was also celebrating his birthday, the tour itself was out of this world. Getting to see NYC from a... More

What a fantastic experience. We arrived early and the ground staff were very helpful in getting us onto an earlier flight. We were incredibly lucky to get Captain Andrew Woods as our pilot and I was even luckier to get chosen to sit in the front. I am a nervous flyer, but with his calm manner and sense of humour... More

This helicopter sight seeing trip was absolutely surreal and breathtaking!! Great way to see all the boroughs of New York. Our Pilot was a guide called Cameron and he was very friendly, knowledgeable, informative and funny. There were four of us and he answered all of our questions, and joined in with our chatter!!!! Really worth every penny we paid.... More

We have been to NYC three times so we were looking to do something different. In short it was brilliant. We did the 30 minute tour and it was a great way to see a view of Manhattan and the Bronx that you can never see from any building. That and the fact that they use music to add to... More

We stopped in New York for 3 days on our way home from Mexico - it was fab - especially the helicopter ride over the city, breathtaking! Only wish I could remember the songs that were played in the helicopter as well as 'New York' as they would be great to put to my wee video of photos. Thanks Zip... More

We were introduced to Zip aviation at the Seaport area pier / east river by sales rep Carlo Torres who discussed our flight options with us. He was not pushy by any means and super friendly. His approach was genuine, and made you feel like you were on the flight before you were actually there. Thank you Carlo for approaching... More

My Mum and I went on a helicopter ride whilst visiting New York. We weren't planning to do this until we came across the sales rep Devine. He was very friendly and reassuring as I am nervous fligher but have no regrets. It was a fantastic experience and something everyone should do.

Having just spent 7 weeks travelling around the world, friends often ask me for the high-lite of the trip. Without a doubt it would have to be the Zip Heli tour over the Hudson River and seeing NYC from a birds eye view. The whole team at Zip were so friendly and our charming pilot Andrew not only took great... More
