This was not something I wanted to do, but my husband and several friends pressured me.. Very glad they did! The views were breathtaking. The ride was smooth and the pilot have lots of information about the city. Can't wait to do it again!

Although we had reservations, and were on time, upon arrival we were asked to wait outside in a cattle herd. We hadn't been warned we would have an outside wait, and while it was a 60* day, it was MUCH colder waiting on the water. When we did finally get inside, we once again were asked to wait - for...

you get squeezed into the helicopter but it is good fun and if you are going to do it then take the longer 20 min flight as you do get a good tour of Manhattan and the park, the statue etc

At no time time did they feel rushed in and rushed out. They felt like welcome guests. I as Mom, loved the security they had in place and I... More

This is a great way to see all of NY in a short amount of time and you will see it a way you can not see it from the ground. It was our first time to the city and we saw sites we would not have had time to visit in a short amount of time. Staff was very... More

I bought a Groupon for this tour and I really enjoyed it. I went solo primarily for photography. They have three different tour lengths, and I would suggest the long one. It's not that much more and you'll get to see about twice as much. The staff was very professional and nice. The only downside is I'm a big guy... More

I done the 15 minute trip and loved every second . My wife had the front seat beside the pilot so could almost see below the helicopter due to the shape of the windows !!! I got a window seat in the back and was able to get amazing photos. What an experience .These memories will last a lifetime .... More
