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

Beware the $35 per person charge you have to pay on top of whatever you have paid for. We did the 20 minute tour, red hot day, great pilot, great views. What a great 40th birthday treat.

You 260 + 30 dollars (fee) for the VIP 25-30 minutes. The flight only took 20 minutes from take-off to landing. And it didn't go to Yankee Stadium. Don't recommend the VIP. Do the standard one.

We took the VIP tour and was not disappointed. Its a shame you have to share a helicopter costs are expensive but i think its worth it. The trip takes you to Coney Island and Manhatton, a fantastic time.

Not cheap, again great service by the Plaza concierge team booking the tickets. I have read some disparaging remarks about the staff here and I can see why some people are less than impressed. It is a bit of a cattle herd situation with staff who seem a little disinterested. Disappointing especially at the price. The pilots made up for... More
