We enjoyed our helicopter tour which was worth the money. It's expensive to run a helicopter. However, some of the staff are herding you inside the waiting area onto uncomfortable wood benches and making you get too close to some travelers from places that don't know what deodorant is. For $150 per person, they should teach the staff that this... More

We booked this tour for our wedding anniversary during our recent first trip to NYC. We booked online whilst in New York which was quick and easy to do. There are 2 other companies that work out of the same heliport so it was busy but the staff pointed you in the right direction. Very organised company, check in etc... More

Decided to take the helicopter tour, even though I tend to hate flights and do not feel very safe in the air. We loved it. It is an alltogether different experience and a new and one of a kind way to see NY. You see all the famous landmarks from above. The whole ciy is at the palm of your... More

Brilliant excursion! We were treated to the tour by a relative for our honeymoon and what a fantastic present! From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at ease and everything ran really smoothly. Really easy to book, just a quick phonecall. The staff were great and really professional. The helicopter tour itself was amazing...brilliant views with commentary... More

If we had to have a hi light to our trip (trust me there were so many) I would have to pick this. 15 mins in the smoothest floating bubble, with the pilot talking you through all the time. I was so worried about doing this, I am sooooo glad I did. It was a stunning day weather wise, New... More

Very fast service, you just have to watch a Safety video (greatest background music) and off you go. Our Pilot was very funny and explained the Most Important sights and borroughs to us. This tour is so amazing it could have gone on forever :)

I booked the Big Apple helicopter tour as a surprise anniversary present for my husband, and I/we certainly weren't disappointed. Because I wanted a specific date and time I did book well in advance, but had an instant email confirmation that my choice had been confirmed. From the booking through to the trip itself, everything was well organised and professional.... More

When we discovered that the tickets for the Statue of Liberty Crown were sold out (and had been sold out for weeks apparently!!), we opted for a helicopter tour as a fun alternative for a high altitude view of NYC. I called the day we wanted to go, and was given availability around midday, plus was offered the same discount... More

On my recent trip to NYC I decided to spring for a Helicopter Tour to see the Skyline. The ride was comfortable and I didn't find myself afraid of the height but the 20min trip is over fairly quickly. You get to see Downtown Manhattan, Central Park, etc from a different perspective but I must say that I thought the... More

Very professional outfit EXCEPT our departure was AN HOUR LATE which was quite unnecessary and unpleasant. Time in NYC is too valuable to waste sitting in a heliport while staff rifle you through like cattle with no regard for committed flight times!!!
