Paid $154 all included for a 15 minute ride to entertain friends visiting NYC. The ride does go by rather quickly but you do get a fantastic aerial view of Financial District, Statue of Liberty all way up westside highway upto middle Central Park. The only negative, Empire State is in the distance, as is Central Park as the helicopter... More

We were only in New York for 4days and wanted to see as much of this amazing city as possible. I friend of mine had been before and raved about it. He bought the flight as a gift. It was amazing, and gave you a really different look at the city. I was lucky enough to be seated next to... More

Fabulous highlight of our stay in New York - talked about it for days. The staff are first class, friendly and helpful - thank you to Ralph and Mike on the desk, funny yet professional, Mehdi the seller and Justin the loader. Worth every penny and something we will never forget.

One my friends offered me to join him as he was taking his family who was visiting. I was skeptical but grabbed a deal online to check it out. These were some of the best 20min i've had in 9 years in NYC. Seeing the city from that angle was definitely different not to mention the excitement of flying. The... More

What a fabulous way to see New York! we went up on a Saturday morning (25thOct.) Our pilot was very informative -Captain Kirk! it was a fantastic 20 minuets - I think it was a little over priced @ £125 but still enjoyed it. plus the $35.00 you had to pay on the day

I really recommend getting a helicopter ride over Manhattan. It's really cheap for what it is, and the views are completely worth it! I loved seeing Manhattan from the sky, we also travel around Lady Liberty as part of the tour. I think it was possible to select longer tours but mine lasted around 13 minutes and it was totally...

Beautiful day to do the trip with views and an experience that will rest long in the memory. Pilot was able to give a good narrative as went along but a "...fast speaking New Yorker!" requires some translation at times! The people were friendly and helpful but we did seem to stand around for quite some time - but that... More
