Helpfull staff, great views. We flew with mild fog, which made me doubt going at first. Heli NY told us it would be good views and they were right. 20 minutes feel like 1 minute but worth every penny. Book in advance, it saves you a lot of time on busy days.

I was really looking forward to my helicopter flight over the sights of New York. We booked through our hotel, so assume this is the company they dealt with. The welcoming staff were friendly when we arrived this morning. We were kitted out ready to go. There were three in our group, all adults, and the other three seats were... More

This was the best thing that we did when we were in New York! Our pilot Floyd was on his last flight of the day and gave us double our allocated time!! We managed to get great views and great pictures. I would reccomend this to anyone visiting New York.

Be aware that there are 3 companies doing the same business in the same location. TRY the other two companies but not this one ! Because : 1- Their helicopter windows are small, compare to others helicopters window. 2- They fill the helicopter with people where the middle person cant move, watch or even take a good pictures, that's if...

Hi We apologize that you feel this way about your helicopter tour experience, but I would like to clarify on the way the helicopter tours work. 1. The windows on our helicopter are large enough for a helicopter tour and they also open. Other companies windows do not open, so once salt water residue is on them you will not... More

Do not make reservations online since their system doesn't work. I tried to make a reservation, but got an error message. I didn't get a confirmation and I didn't do the tour. Still they charged 338 USD from my credit card. Now they don't reply to my emails anymore, and refuse to refund me the money. There will be an... More
