A great experience and one that I would definitely recommend be done. The views were fantastic and allow you to get some amazing photos. The staff were all really friendly. We flew with our two children who absolutely loved it.

From pier 6 up to yankee stadium site almost was all in all about a 15 minute flight. Friendly staff... More

We chartered a helicopter during a recent visit to NYC. It was incredible and provided spectacular views of the city, the Hudson and East Rivers, The Statue of Liberty, Coney Island and so much more. Wonderful trip and a great start to your NYC visit!

We booked a last minute flight for Thursday 4th Sept through our concierge at our hotel. We turned up half an hour early as recommended and were seen to straight away. After the safety briefing we were led out to meet Captain K who was an absolute delight. Our 15 minute flight was smooth and stunning. Other than the experience... More

It was a Great ride no doubt about that. But when we arrived we were told they were one hour behind schedule. Then when we returned later, we waited for an hour most of which was in the sun to get into the building. When we did finally get in and checked in with the cashier, she told me there... More

The information is also printed on the voucher that you received from the hotel concierge. All helicopter companies who operate out of the Downtown Manhattan heliport are required to pay the landlord a series of fees for fueling, security,... More

Service: very good! Punctuality: excellent! Price: fair! The only think I disliked was the step to board helicopter that was too high, which caused me difficulty to entre the helicopter. However two company employees helped me up. Rest of the service was excellent.

We turned up earlier than our slot and they easily accommodated us. Safety briefing fine, but it was clear that when we were taken to the helicopter that the only photographic option was the company one rather than my own camera. In the end I bought the photo, but would have liked them to offer to take a shot with... More

We were somewhat disappointed with our Liberty Helicopter tour experience on Saturday 23rd August 2014. We booked the 15 minute tour for our son's 15th birthday treat. We were back on the ground after just over 12 minutes having had a really miserable pilot - who was clearly bored rigid and made no effort at all to provide an interesting... More

Dear Reviewer, I am sorry to read that you were disappointed with your tour and pilot commentary. I have investigated your claims and in doing so found that the pilot in question had limited commentary during your flight because there was a higher volume of congestion in the NY skies due to the labor day holiday weekend. Our pilots are... More

Got the ride from my kids for my 70th birthday. Excellently organized, professional staff and an exciting venue indeed - definately not scary. You really get the full impression of the Big Apple.
