Busier than I expected, and a magnificent experience - one thing off the ol' 'bucket list'. Scariest bit is the take off but find that you very quickly get used to the way the helicopter moves, and we enjoyed a nice stable flight. In terms of the experience, it did feel pretty rushed, but I think that was more dow... More

Not a cheap attraction but it was worthy of the money - be prepared to haggle with street vendors as they can reduce the costs if you are persistent. Check out the best internet price you can find and go with that as the cost you are prepared to pay. It worked for us A very professional and friendly company... More

Going on a helicopter ride has been on my bucket list since I drafted it and what better place to fly than NYC. Liberty Helicopter Tours exceeded my expectations. The day I was booked for my flight was raining, windy and overcast in the morning. On calling to check flight status for the day, they explained the situation and how... More

I live in New York and had family visiting. I wanted to show them New York from the air. This is a great way to do it. I have to say it’s a fairly basic ride, compared to other tourist helicopter rides I’ve gone on around the country. Not a lot of commentary on what you are seeing. Don’t get... More

My wife and I first did this in 2000 when on Honeymoon and wanted the kids to experience this with us when we came back in 2014. We and the kids were not disappointed. It really is a fantastic way to see all of Manhattan in around 20 minutes. The staff at the heliport are really friendly, and took pictures... More

If there was one thing I could recommend on a trip to New York, it would be the Helicopter tour. We booked the tour whilst we were over in New York via the New York Pass so we received a discount on the fees. You need to arrive half an hour before your tour for booking in and the safety... More

The best way to really appreciate the beauty of New York is from a helicopter.The highlight was having a birds eye view of the Statue of Liberty. No need to feel nervous. There is so much to see, you just want to savour every single magical moment.
