Sights were great....I think. I wouldn't really know because the audio portion of our tour didn't work so we had no idea what we were looking at. When complaining to the company about no audio and asking for a 50% refund or some type of credit, we were offered a $30 picture for free. REALLY?! I have tried contacting them... More

I had seen an offer on groupon and purchased due to the great deal. When initially booking the flight, Ruth in customer services was so helpful and provided plenty of details as well as sending a confirmation email with all of the important information. Unfortunately on the day of our flight, there were storms and torrential rain around NYC, so... More

I saw Manhattan Helicopters advertised on Groupon but as I'm not based in the US I couldn't book through there so I emailed and asked if I could have the same deal, they came back to me really quickly and said no problem and everything was sorted really quickly and easily through email. Great customer service experience! The flight itself... More

It was the first time my wife and I had ever been in a helicopter so we were a little nervous, especially because it was a windy day. However, the safety briefing and friendly staff helped ease the nerves that by the time we jumped into the helicopter (my wife was lucky enough to sit shot gun with the pilot!)... More

I booked this tour for my man’s birthday on Sat. Nov 22. For the price paid for 15 minute tour, I was more than disappointed to say the least. If you are lucky enough to get a window seat, it is good, if not it is a complete waste of good money. Fortunately my man had a window seat and... More

Do not pay $125-175 per person to take a Manhattan Helicopter tour if you are small or slim--they will put you in the middle in the back & you will see nothing. Save your money & go to the top of the Empire State Building instead.

There are many ways to see and lern to love this beautiful city. However the Skyline in Manhattan is even more beautiful when you appreciate that form a helicopter. 175 $ per person is nothing compared to what you can see and enjoy during the 15 min flight. And maybe you are lucky and the frindly pilot ends the flight... More

I love these guys… second time they've taken up in the air to see the beautiful city that is New York. Santiago was one of the gentlemen there assisting passengers and taking pictures. He was awesome and put everyone in a great mood. I strongly recommend this for couples, families, and for the independent man or woman. A breathtaking experience... More

We booked the 20 minute deluxe trip which was to have included Yankee Stadium, but as they were playing there was a no-fly-zone in force. We were therefore re-routed south over the Verrazzano Bridge which was spectacular from the air. The check-in arrangements all worked smoothly, and we flew earlier than expected. The flight lasted 23 minutes, so we were... More
