Paid $300 before we went and then you have the heliport fees on the day which were $70 if I remember correctly. Fits 6 people inside so I suppose it is quite costly. It is good but not sure it was worth the money to be honest, as it's over really quickly! We debated for a long time whether or... More

We paid a lot of money for this helicopter tour and we were so excited however while we were flying the door of the helicopter opened. We had to land at a separate location for this to be closed. Understandably this was a distressing experience for my partner who has a fear of flying. We received no apology or explanation... More

We had a 15 minute trip which was brilliant and shoed us the Hudson River from the air, Statue of Liberty USS Intrepid, Central Park and all the main attractions. It was also fascinating to see the residential areas from above. !5 minutes is plenty long enough. The staff were fantastic and having never been in a helicopter before it... More

It's expensive for 4 of us but what a treat..The best part of the holiday. U can purchase a photo the staff take before takeoff but one of them took one for me with... More

I took the 18-20 minutes tour with Liberty. There are 2 rows in the helicopter, 2 people sit in the front with the pilot and 4 in the back row. I was lucky enough to sit in front, but the 2 people in the middle in the back couldn't take good photos. We all want that on such a tour,... More

There was another airline that you could line up for the was much quicker and the staff seems to be move attentive and much better at... More

We were crammed in to the helicopter 6 people in all. The 2 people in the middle of the back would not have had a great view. I planned on taking some photos but it was most difficult. To be honest I enjoyed the simulator ride at The Empire State much more. The photos from the top great.
