We went on the 20 minute trip along the Hudson and around the Statue of Liberty. It was just a blast! Our pilot Kim provided us with very interesting information about the relevant landmarks and made for a perfect overview of the city. Yes, it is a bit pricey but be assured it is worth every penny!

This has always been on my bucket list and when we had the opportunity to do this in New York I had to book it. This was an amazing experience and fantastic views over New York and views of the famous sky line. These helicopters seem better than the others that go from this heliport as the windows are full...

They had six passengers and we went on a 20 minute flight located east of Battery Park. If you are looking for something new to do in NYC this might be for you. Ranges in price from $150 - 200 and I was surprised they did not try and squeeze you for a tip. They did take photos of you... More

Both my wife and I experienced our first ever helicopter flight last week and it was in New York and the views were amazing. The initial experience was a little confusing and we were herded around slightly mainly due to the sheer volume of customers and helicopters but this is where the negativity stops. Once on the pier and into... More

Very pricey, but we wanted to add this in as the highlight to our New York trip. We ended up getting to the heliport an hour early as I had the time wrong but the staff there were very accommodating and we were put on an earlier flight. Everything very professional and the pilot/guide was great. We even saw a... More

We purchased two tickets to fly on the Helicopter tour of NYC. The price is very expensive but knowing we would never have the opportunity again to do this we thought we should just go ahead with it. We arrived an hour early but were accommodated by the staff and put into a much early flight which was brilliant leaving... More

Today we toured the city with the best view. Helicopter Flight Services was the best. They were professional, thorough, personable and of course it was a great tour and facts of Manhattan you wouldn't learn otherwise. Our check-in with Lenin was speedy and flawless. Our Captain, Fernando, was pleasant and informative. The entire experience couldn't have been better and worth... More
