What an unbelievable experience. A real must do when visiting New York. We had booked for Friday but due to the president visiting we had to reschedule. This was made very easy by the company and they were so friendly and flexible. We arrived nearly an hour early but they still took us straight away. I was a little concerned... More

I would recommend if you are in New York to spend from about $ 150 to fly over the giant city. Wonderful views and a wonderful experience that was one of the highlights of our stay in New York. And the pilot Floyd Maxson was informative and skilled. Book ahead as tours are popular

If you have two days to do New York, this is the way to start it off. We had great views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Ground Zero Memorial, Empire State Building, etc. etc. The only complaint is that the people working there (except for the nice guy who checked us in) could work on their people skills....

A magic tour with a high class company. Safety and quality from the time you arrive the heliport, the staff takes good care of you. We had a spectaculare view over Manhattan and the areas over Hudson river with Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Brooklyn Bridge and much more. You will also have a picture taken in front of the...

I booked this trip for 4 of us prior to our visit to New York. Booking process was very easy and got the day and time I requested. All staff when we arrived were very pleasant and helpful. My husband asked if he could sit up front with the pilot and to his delight they let him. The views were... More
