Nothing beats NYC from the air but I was disappointed with this tour. It was sold as 20-25 minutes and from touch off to land clocked in at 21 with 5 of those minutes being travel time from across the water in New Jersey and maneuvering so closer to 15 minutes.

We flew up and back the Hudson with a quick circle around the Statue of Liberty. We didn't fly over the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges as promised despite me asking the pilot and we didn't fly over Central Park or any part of the city (I saw others doing it but maybe they have different clearance?), just flew up and down the river.

Office staff was unorganized and unmasked. Our pilot was new to the company and new(ish) to NYC so maybe we got an off day. Overall, it was a stunning experience but I felt we didn't get what was promised and considering the price, I think 3 stars is generous.

Absolutely brilliant. We booked a shorter tour but when we got there they had upgraded us to the ultimate tour at no extra charge. They also let my daughter sit up front with the pilot so she had the best view. All staff were amazing, and the gentleman who picked us up to take us to the hanger was funny and explained what was going to happen before we flew. From start to finish this was an amazing experience and can't praise the staff enough.

Excellent tour and staff. Marcus is extremely welcoming and the staff was willing to help me out because I had forgotten my id. The pilot is knowledgeable and circles around so you can see everything. I highly recommend this.

It was a nice trip and we took good photo's. However, we only went on the Hudson River and the Liberty statue while we expected to see more (as advertised). For this reason I will rate it bad, because we made a choice to book a more expensive trip and didn't see much more than the cheaper trip.
