We did the helicopter tour on our last day in New York and it was everything we hoped it would be and more. We were meant to do it the day before, but it was cancelled due to bad weather, by this I mean torrential rain, I don't think it was that the chopper couldn't get up but that the... More

It's expensive but well worth it. It's just a case of biting the bullet and going for it, the views are amazing and gives you an idea of the size of the city. Just do it and don't think of the cost. I am not a great flyer and was a windy day, so it was very bumpy but I'm... More

We ended up with a grey overcast day in myc for our tour but it was still worth it for the views. Liberty have a great set up and customers are looked after from the moment you enter the building. My mum and I got the front seat with the pilot , there were 4 other passengers in the back... More

When we arrived for our flight, the lady who was checking us in had a different flight time as to what my email confirmation had in fact her time was 45 minutes later than mine. This wouldn't have been a huge problem however we had already booked another trip straight after the helicopter, to visit 9/11 memorial which was all... More

The staff were an amazingly friendly happy bunch. The flight itself was amazing with a good clear commentary, Only downside if you are unfortunate enough to be allocated a middle seat your views are obscured by both other passengers and metal work on the doors so not good for taking photo's. Would do this again.

We went on the New York New York Tour on 5th December 2014 it was amazing. Staff at check in very helpful. They even told us the best way to walk up to the 911Memorial as we had booked to go there after the trip. The pilot gave a great running commentary on the trip. It was quite expensive but... More

Our initial flight had to be postponed to the following day, because of bad weather. But Liberty accommodated us the following day without any problems, when it had stopped raining! We enjoyed the flight very much, it was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary, the views were very clear, & I think covered everything we were expecting. The pilot, very... More

We booked this tour from a guy in a red jacket outside grand central station it was $150 per person plus a heliport charge which we didn't think to ask how much until we got there so it was a bit of a shock when we found out that was an extra $35 making a 15 minute flight $185 each... More

The best way to view Liberty.... and a great experience, if a little pricey. If you can sit on the right of the copter, as this is the best view and book in advance, as you can't just turn up and jump aboard.
