We booked this last minute whilst staying in NYC and chose this company based on reviews. We were glad we did as on arrival to the pier there are a few different companies and helicopter flight services definitely seemed the most professional. The other reps outside are very pushy but these reps didn't seem like that (they are in red... More

This was a last minute booking - we booked after a recommendation from another holiday maker and we were blown away by the experience. We where staying near Times Square and took the metro and followed directions given to us in our confirmation email, however there are lots of "reps" on the street to point you in right direction.

I wanted to give my son an experience for his 21st birthday instead of the typical $ gift. I knew how fun this would be! The Jet copter is located on the Hudson and is quite impressive! From the moment you lift off to the passing over Lady Liberty, it's a thrill a second! Flying up the Hudson, over Brooklyn... More

No helicopter tour is going to be cheap, but this place was as reasonable as any I saw. The terminal moved people through like cattle, but the actual tour felt relaxed. The tour was only 20 minutes, but it felt much longer than that. It helps to be a little familiar with the landmarks of Manhattan to best appreciate what... More

I pre-booked with a 25% discount and did not get a quote while there, so cannot advise if pre booking or booking on the day was cheaper. We choose to end our 5 day trip to NY with a helicopter ride, and was not disappointed. The views were amazing and I recommend to anyone that can afford to do it.... More

This was a birthday treat for 8 celebrating my 50th birthday in a way to remember, New York by night, the most iconic skyline in the world. I booked through Viator and was really pleased that everything went to plan. The flight was amazing and although the party was split 2 and 6 we all experienced a fabulous treat. The... More

The staff are so friendly and helpful, my daughter was sat in the front with the pilot so made it even more exciting for her.. the helicopter itself was very modern, mostly glass so even if your sat in the back you have unbroken views.. the...

I'd done done research on the different companies operating helicopters and this one only had good reviews so I went with these. The helicopter looks so much better than the others - much bigger windows for a start. I'd read stories about the dreaded middle seat so I specifically asked not to be seated there - as I was on...

Our family of 6 did the Ultimate tour. Our children are 12, 11, 10 & 8 and loved every minute of it. Eric was our pilot and he was excellent at answering all of the children's questions and gave a very informative guided tour. The helicopter that we flew in had huge windows all the way around so everyone had... More
