My husband had booked the trip via Travelzoo for my 40th birthday. 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

I booked this as a surprise for my mom during our trip to NYC last week. She had absolutely no idea why we were getting off the water taxi at this stop and the look on her face when she figured it out was priceless. I booked through Livingsocial and I felt that it was a good deal since it... More

We booked for the 12 minute trip which was brilliant. The helicopter took us from the South Street Port area all the way past the statue of Liberty and half way up Central Park. This was plenty. It cost about £80 each but if you wanted to go just a little bit further it would cost about another £30 -£40... More

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
