I had never been to a helicopter before and I can't think of a better place to try it out than in New York. We took the Liberty Tour and I have no complaints. You'll get a great view of New York's skyline. One could argue this attraction is expensive for the time you're actually up there, but I personally... More

Both my husband and I have been in many helicopters for work purposes, but this was the first time for pleasure for either of us. It was lovely to sit back and relax while Captain Keith gave us a commentary of the world below.

Booked this as a Christmas surprise for my kids and they absolutely loved it. The seating on board is specified by weight and teenage kids seem to get front seat priority which was great for us. The view is great wherever you sit as the flight takes you down the river and then back up again so nobody misses out... More

although the weather wasn't good (it was rainging a bit), the view was great. I wasn't scared from the moment the helicopter got off the ground. The pilot was very nice, told a lot of stories and informtaion. great memories.

Despite some confusion with the third party that I purchased the tickets from: Jessica (manager) went out of her way to ensure that our reservations went smoothly. My son throughly enjoyed his suprise birthday present. We were impressed with the professionalism that was displayed and the security level.

So relied on the good reviews, we booked with this company. This experience was incredible, the helicopters were comfortable and the views were absolutely amazing!! We flew out on a sunny... More

Wonderful experience. Booked on a coupon thing in Australia and booked in advance. Wonderful view of NY skyline and we were both seated next to the window so got to see it all. Captain also makes sure both sides of the Helicopter get to see everything as he flew up and down landmarks. Very special thing to do. Last time... More

We made the Grand Tour, 25 minutes, and it definitely worth the price you pay. Looking at the NYC skyline from the top of it it's a stunning experience. The company is really good and the captain during the flight was really nice and kind. The helycopters are good to see everything, maybe not the ones with the large windows... More

Flying a helicopter over Manhattan was absolutely amazing! The pilot was really fun, and we felt safe all the time. Highly recommended!
