If you've never been to NYC - you really do have to do this. We turned up early on second day of our trip - hadn't booked a formal time but they still managed to fit us in within 2 flights (approx 30 minutes). I would recommend booking though, especially during busy times as quite correctly, this will ensure you... More

A friend recommended this trip and we were not disappointed. The views of Manhattan are something we will never forget. I would recommend it whole-heartedly. We originally booked a time slot a week in advance and, as the day approached, it became clear that the weather forecast was not particularly good so we changed the day and time twice without...

Everything about this tour was great - flexible booking, great organisation and the flight itself was superb. The pilot was funny and informative, the views fantastic and it was the highlight of our trip to New York. It takes quite a lot to impress a 14 year old but he pronounced it "the coolest thing I've ever done". Many thanks

Helicopter flying in New York? Great, do it. But not with Liberty Helicopter Tours. We were scheduled to fly at a specific time, but had to wait in line for 2,5 hours. And all those lies from the Liberty staff, like "It will be only 30 minutes", "Sorry, we ran out of kerosine", etc. All the other helicopter operators had... More

I can truly recommend this as a fantastic and lasting memory of NYC. Not only is the view superb but the experience of being in a helicopter makes it a double whammy! Well worth every dollar and I will urge all my friends visiting NYC to do this. Some reviews have commented about the wait, but this is only to... More

Inside the heli: it was too hot, too full, some seats have very limited & poor sight. I was glad when it came to an end. Nice pilot and staff and they take security seriously. I'd only recommend this if they reduce the number of passengers without having to pay for the premium tour.

Booked a trip for my wife's birthday with the helicopter just for the two of us. Weather caused the trip to be rebooked, all handled professionally and easily by the Liberty team. We were lucky to get the most beautiful April day with not a cloud in the sky. The whole security and booking in process was easy, the helicopter... More

On our first trip to NYC, we decided not to hold back and enjoy what we could. Despite the initial thought, wow this is expensive we went ahead and booked the Big Apple tour. It was worth every penny. Small tip, we had the NYC pass and there is 15 percent discount when you book it. You do need to... More

A helicopter tour over Manhattan is such an amazing experience - it's not cheap but worth every cent.
