Myself and my husband did the New Yorker tour which was around 15minutes taking in all the sites. The helicopters are the better ones that operate from Pier 6 as they have larger windows so even the person in the middle seat could see. Really friendly staff and the pilot was very knowledgable. Would definitely use this company again!

We really enjoyed our flight but it was over very quickly so you didn't really get the chance to experience where you were. Our pilot was a lovely lady who introduced the sights as we flew by. Best part was flying round the Statue of Liberty but as for the other sights they went past to quickly to fully appreciate.

We had a perfect winter day for this and it was amazing. They were so organized compared to the other 2 companies either side in the helipad building. Efficient on the ground gives you confidence. Liam our Irish pilot was fantastic and very knowledgable. We did the deluxe tour for 30 minutes. Highly recommended

I booked the VIP Night Flight and Liberty Cruise through Viator-- BIG MISTAKE I loved New York, and I will return again this winter, but I will not make this mistake again. RULE 1- Don't book through Viator- it is tough as they are an aggregator, but do all you can to avoid them. I used them a couple of... More

Very rarely can you consider $426 good value for 17 mins entertainment but if you look beyond the cost this is a wonderful experience I would encourage everyone to do. When you arrive at the pier it looks like chaos but despite there being several different tour operators and bodies lined up everywhere staff seem to know exactly what's going... More

We were first timers to NYC and this was a great way of seeing the City from above! Booking process was easy, and they were very efficient getting us through to the actual experience (booking in, safety briefing etc.). Ladies beware - they will ask for your weight for balancing the helicopter safely, but are fairly discreet so don't worry... More

We arrived about an hour early for our flight and were welcomed by the hospitable staff. They showed us where to go and also managed to fit us onto an earlier flight than what we had booked. The views were outstanding, the staff went beyond the call of duty to be helpful and for the price, it is well worth... More

It was a super fun experience! Very organized (it was pretty busy but everyone managed everything so well). The staff gave us the proper security briefing (additional to the video that was playing on the screen). The ride itself was really nice. The pilot managed to point out all the different places (both in english and spanish), while doing his... More
