Efficient, friendly, conscientious, and an excellent helicopter tour up and down the Hudson River taking in all the sights. We did the 25 minute tour which went by in a flash, but we saw it all! They take photos that you can buy for $20 or you can get your photo and a few stock photos on a USB stick... More

We booked this trip as part of a tour as we had neglected to do this when we last came to the city eight years ago and regretted it! Perfect day with clear blue skies - another way to see the city from on high!

This is such a popular activity in New York that it has been set up a bit like a production line to process people through admission to the building, safety talk, bags into lockers and life belts in .. Then out via marked walkways to the helicopters. I could see they were running 6 - 8 choppers full time, so... More

When you're about to fly in a Helicopter with your family, it's nice to have an extremely thorough and professional outfit running the show. NY Helicopter delivers.

Decided to take a helicopter ride over New York - chose New York Helicopters. What an experience. Such a polite team - groundcrew, pilot who were organised, respectful, efficient and provided the highlight of my trip. What a flight! AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME!

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
