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

In a word --> AMAZING! And a great way to beat the queues for a number of attractions (eg: Statue of Liberty) - especially if you're on a short trip. Professional and friendly staff kept us in the loop at every stage of the queueing process (even after the delay caused by a surprise security visit from Obama's security detail).... More

A great way to see the city, although we had a cloudy day. We pretty much covered it all, the pilot was very accommodating, although the guy at the ticket desk said we got "the crazy Norwegian".

This is certainly without a doubt the highlight of my trip to New York.....the best way to see New York is definitely by a helicopter...u can literally see almost everything it's like Birdseye view of New York.....worth every penny....good pilot very informative...I Cudnt be happier I choose the heli tour over IPhone5S....experience is priceless

The staff is incredibly efficient and all prep is organised with military precision for your safety.....you might even be the lucky... More

We opted for the Central Park tour, lasting 19 minutes. There were only 3 of us on the flight, so good access to the windows to take photos. We also had a guide point out all of the local sights, which was really good. The weather wasn't the best for us, with the mast on the top of the Freedom... More
