    Our guide Gil was knowledgeable and had great personality. Our driver Miguel was courteous and safe! We covered lots of the city and got great tips for the locations we want to return to and explore further.

    John F. was a fantastic tour guide for both the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island! He is an amazing storyteller, who helped bring the history to life for us and our two children (ages 10 and 13) by weaving together the key names, dates and events into a series of engrossing stories about the statue and the island. This was way more interesting and entertaining than your usual tour. He was also a pro at guiding us through security, on and off the boat, and on and off the islands more efficiently than the general public. I highly recommend this tour and particularly John. Thanks again!

    This is the coolest experience ever!! It is so much more than just getting to the top and having a great view. There are 3 levels to experience plus the bonus of the elevator that climbs on the outside of the building and has superb views of NY City. The drinks at the bar are delicious and every step of the way was enhanced by the people who work here! Kudos

    Helicopter was shared with 6 people plus pilot. So a bit cramped but great views . Only get best photos if sat in front or window seats. Times were changed and initially they couldn’t find the booking so worth calling and checking.
    Helicopter goes up one side and then repeats journey so both sides of helicopter can see.

    Much more than just a trip in an escalator and a view. Fantastic interactive displays showing the construction of the building. You even get to sit in King kings hand for a photo opportunity. Super friendly staff in attendance. Then of course there is the view. We went at 20:00 to avoid the crowds. Best advice possible - no queues and a wonderful night time panorama.

    What an absolutely amazing way to see the city that never sleeps at sunset over Manhattan. From beginning to end the professional manner of all the staff from us entering the building to safety information and then to boarding the helicopter and then the flight were simply OUTSTANDING. Wow, this has to be one of THE highlights of any visit to what I would say IS the greatest city on earth. Another item ticked off my bucket list, but to share and celebrate our wedding anniversary with my wife of 30 years was truly magical in itself. If I could give these guys 11 out of 10 I would, our pilots knowledge of the sights was immense. Yes, I know he must do this maybe 10 times a day but he was enthusiastic and funny too. Our first ever flight on a helicopter but this will not be our last. Thank you all at Liberty flights.

    Spectacular view! I haven’t seen anything like this before. Although I must say that there were too many people and couldn’t get the best view. I was in awe of the view and overwhelmed with people.

    I would strongly recommend everyone to visit the Edge when you visit NYC!

    PS- My head is still spinning from the view lol

    Having watched the horrendous incident from home this was a more personal experience.
    Watching the day unfold as you progress through introduces the various people involved from the office workers to the emergency services and others affected directly and indirectly.
    A very emotional experience and as I have found in similar situations very quiet and somber.

    We hadn’t originally planned on doing a cruise and threw it in last minute. Was definitely worthwhile doing and something I would recommend to anyone planning a visit.

    Lovely to see the city lights/landmarks from the boat and also got close ups of the Brooklyn Bridge and Lady Liberty from the water. The express cruise is only around 50 mins so not too long and the tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable. The driver also stops the boat to allow you to take pictures which was another bonus.
