I contacted Adrenaline 360 by phone to ask questions and get more details. The person assisting me was very friendly and helpful. When we arrived we... More

I'd read reviews about the helicopter experience on TripAdvisor, so sort of knew what to expect. This review isn't really for NY Helicopter, per se, but more for the overall experience, as I imagine it's true across the board, as it seems most of the companies that go from this location are similar. You are indeed shoved around a bit... More

We took the 25 minute tour around the city! The pilot did a great job of telling us the history of all the different sites. We were able to see the city in ways that we never have before and would definitely recommend this once in a lifetime experience!

I went there with my girlfriend. We took the 25min tour and the tour itself was nice. Statue of Liberty and the waterfront of southern Manhattan were great. On the other hand side there was the staff which was not friendly. They were already pissed off and they would not hide it at all. So that was the downside of... More

At the last minute, before we had to leave for home, we saw the helicopter tours from Battery Park. My daughter and her daughter and I were on a special trip to celebrate granddaughter's Sweet 16, and this was a great way to cap it off. All the guys were great - got us right in - don't know about... More

This is an absolutely amazing way to get a picture of the big city. The helicopter fits five (one with the pilot in front and four in the back) and on the ride we took you got 15 minutes in the air. You get to see the statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and Manhattan from the side. It is really... More

It's always been on my bucketlist to ride in a helicopter. When I found the deal for NY Helicopter, I jumped on it and made my reservation. I booked it for after my wedding on the Brooklyn Bridge. We arrived at the port and there are a few other helo companies there doing tours. Since we had a reservation we... More

An amazing way to see Manhattan. Slick, professional and great value. The pilot gives a great commentary and the flight path ensures that passengers on both sides get an opportunity to enjoy the fabulous views, including Govenors Island, the Statue of Liberty, Manhattan and New Jersey. Just do it.

It is a bit pricey but not as bad as I thought it was going to be. They are not allowed to fly over Manhattan any more but this by far the best way to see the city and Statue of Liberty. It only takes 15 minutes so its a great way to see NY if you running from meeting... More
