This isnt one of the cheaper experiences but defintily one of the best in New York. We paid for the middle distance and thought it was incredible. The staff were great, very friendly, slick and things were turned round quickly. Onto the helicopter and the pilot was great, really informative and the views were stunning. Nothing seemed rushed and couldnt... More

My friend and I were surprised by a family friend booking us on a helicopter ride for our first day in New York. It was magical and a wonderful start to a brilliant holiday. The whole process was a breeze and took no longer than 10 minutes to get us life belted up and ready to set off. The staff... More

The tour organisation was brilliant. We found the pilots commentary hard to understand and very short/minimal. As a way to get your bearings of NYC highly recommend it especially during the 1st day or so after arriving.

We only booked the 15 Mins tour but it was worth every penny (Cent) Pilot points out places of intrest, We were lucky both me and my wife sat across from each other both with window seats so we avoided the dreaded middle seat.

Booked an early morning 15 minute Flight which was great value and a highlight of our trip. Although the pilot was great, the other staff seemed bored and totally unenthusiastic. There were a lot of other customers waiting and we felt like herded cattle. I have done a similar trip in Las Vegas and the staff there were far better... More

We had a 11am flight today which we were running late for. They were very accomodating when we arrived and put us on the next flight. We did the deluxe package and it was great! We were in the air for 32 minutes and saw some amazing views. It is expensive but a must do!

We booked this from Australia as a special 20th Anniversary treat for ourselves on the day of our anniversary and based on tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed. Personally, I don't normally do helicopters as I suffer motion sickness but decided to stick this one out. I'm so glad I did. From the moment we entered their premises, the staff... More

What a blast, got the wrong tube arrived late worried we missed our flight. The staff were brilliant, took us through every step of the way, nothing was too much trouble, and as for the flight itself over the Statue of Liberty and seeing the landmarks of New York was worth every penny of the cost.

I purchased tickets on-line for a surprise birthday present for my boyfriend and I'm so glad I did as it was a really magical experience. The booking process on line was easy and efficient. It's not the cheapest thing to do in NYC but it was worth every penny in my opinion. We arrived half an hour early as requested,... More
