It's not cheap but wow the views were amazing. We happened to take this trip under clear skies and it was worth it. We arrived a bit late but because there's a bit of a wait the staff was able to accommodate us into the tour. The pilot gave us some highlights along the tour. bring a good camera as... More

OK, a helicopter trip over New York doesn't come cheap - about £100 a head for 20 minutes - but it really is an exceptional experience. We booked by phone on the day (but there were salesmen outside the Statten Island Ferry terminal, so you could have just turned up). The whole experience was very slick and professional. The helicopter... More

My wife booked the flight some weeks before our trip to NYC and we were very grateful, she did. We took the ultimate tour, which meant around 20 min in the air. It was really a phantastic experience. Stunning views from all angles of NYC (with plenty of photos taken), a very smooth ride (no chance to get sick) and... More

this tour was brilliant! id recommnd heliny as their helis have the biggest windows! you have great views from all angles! We really enjoyed this tour was good to do once we got our bearings around the city as we were able to point things out and know where places were from the sky! Definately worth it, money well spent!

I surprised my 18 & 22 year old nephews with a private helicopter tour of Manhattan & surrounding areas. Great way to begin our visit to NYC. I selected HFS because, comparing website photos, their helicopters seemed to have the best windows for visibility & they did. Once through the somewhat disorganized intake process (I made reservations & prepaid weeks... More

While staying in The Big Apple for 6 nights, this was a must do for the Family and we were not disappointed. We took the 30 minute trip and enjoyed every second, aided and abetted by Floyd our pilot who was able to add a subtle touch of comedy to an already wonderful experience. As an aside, the organisation was... More
