This is hands-down one of my favorite attractions I've done like, ever. I visit NYC a fair amount and I think it helped me enjoy the tour more knowing the layout and being able to recognize some places I had been before so I recommend saving this as one of the last things you do! I used a Build Your... More

Can not say enough good about this trip. We had amazing views of the city, flew over Coney Island and all the major tourists attractions. Whilst it is not cheap, it's something to always remember. If you have the cash, spend it.

Great experience, perfect surprise gift for my wife's 4th of July birthday!!! Once I informed the staff about her birthday, they placed her right next to the pilot, so she had a spectacular view throughout her flight. Sure, it's a lot of money for a seemingly short flight...but once you get there, you see what you are paying for. This... More

Although I wasn't expecting much from a 15 min trip, I was amazed at the experience. The views and the sensation of flying over such a large city was spectacular. Well worth the money.

Booked this for my girlfriends birthday. Staff were excellent, very friendly and made us feel welcome. Couldn't fly over Yankee stadium and when I booked it they should really have said that because for some reason my girlfriend likes the Yankees. I was a bit disappointed too because as a Red Sox fan I would have liked to have accidentally... More

Went with my wife and son for a 25 minute flight with New York Helicopters. Unfortunately weather meant the flight was delayed by 24 hours but when we did it it was amazing! Brilliant way to see this amazing city

This was a spur of the moment decision and one which I thoroughly recommend. All the staff were extremely helpful and professional. Brian our pilot was great at pointing out the sites. We did the 15 minute flight which seemed plenty long enough. Definitely a must if in NYC

I bought this trip for my parents as a gift. They had a great time. And we are all New Yorkers here but this is still totally different than anything else. My parents did the Central Park Tour, saw downtown Manhattan, Statue of Liberty, Empire State, Central Park, GW Bridge and the Yankee Stadium. Also, all the guys who worked... More

No nasty surprises, everything is as advertised. The 12-15 minutes long trip is enough (we were wondering whether to take this one or the longer of minutes).
