I had never visited New York before and was very excited about the helicopter trip, particularly the amazing views and photo opportunities promised on NY Helicopter's website. We had read the FAQs and knew that the company use both 4 and 6 seater helicopters so we knew that... More

It cost about £80 each but if you wanted to go just a little bit further it would cost about another £30 -£40... More
