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

We took the cheaper 12-15 minut ride, it was a live experience. Very nice staff, great pilot and we got (30$) a great picture as reminder ! Really its worth every penny. It was my first time in a helicopter and it was not scary or anything, flying is worse. So ig you have the money, do this !

We had a travel zoo voucher and had no problems booking this for my birthday. We had an early morning booking for the grand tour. We got to the heliport half an hour early as advised and were checked in quickly. Other people were turning up less than 30 minutes before their scheduled trip but had no issues so I... More

This was a special birthday present for my mother-in-law's 95th birthday, so the accompanying fliers were my wife and her sister (even with the significantTravel Zoo discount, it was a bit pricey for me to fly as well). We forgot the travel voucher at the house, so the fellow behind the desk (sorry I don't remember his name, started with... More
