Best Way to see NY

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... read 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

My daughter and I went on a trip to New York....we had such a great experience...it was fabulous. The helicopter trip....which had fantastic viewing , was one of the highlights of the week. We circled the Statue of Liberty , as well Ellis Island, I can't recommend it enough if you ever go there. Would love to go again!

My husband and I took the 19 minute helicopter ride near Central Park. The ground was covered with snow, so I didn't think we would see that much. But I was wrong... so much to see from the lower tip of Manhattan, around Governor's Island and the Statue of Liberty up to and over the George Washington Bridge. The staff... More

We bought this well in advance of visiting from travel zoo at a discounted rate, and although still pricey it was worth every dollar for the great views. We were only visiting NY for 3 nights so this is a great way of seeing a lot of the city in a short space of time. The statue of liberty particularly.... More

I had never been to a helicopter before and I can't think of a better place to try it out than in New York. We took the Liberty Tour and I have no complaints. You'll get a great view of New York's skyline. One could argue this attraction is expensive for the time you're actually up there, but I personally... More
