Excellent trip - totally worth it. I sat at the front as it was my birthday and the pilot played a happy birthday song on the radio - very special.
Really brilliant, i was absolutely terrified, but the pilot relaxed me and never felt safer.
Het was geweldig, wil zo weer terug.
Dank jullie voor deze mooie dag je bent maar één keer 50.
Groetjes uit Holland.
This was amazing I even got to sit in front and with it been my 50th birthday it really made my day. Enjoyed every minute would really recommend it
This tour was spectacular! The pilot was wonderful and the helicopter was comfortable and really nice. I went on a tour for my birthday and loved every minute of it! Highly recommend!
It's pricy but worth it. Where else can you buzz around the skyline experience a truly birds eye view of one of America's Greatest cities. Breathtaking.
Amazing, once in a lifetime, experience. Booked to celebrate a 30th birthday and surpassed all expectations. Very organised, on time and as planned. Would definitely recommend.
only surprised by the 35 I had to pay... but the staff was amazing getting me a front seat in the helicopter, all very friendly and super helpful
This was the most amazing part of the trip. The weather was great clear skies. From arrival to departure after the flight we were looked after. The staff explained the procedures and what to expect. You could buy photographs but the staff were not pushy about this product.
Our pilot was chatty and all the passengers were able to talk to each other.
Due to heavy amounts of traffic we received a couple of extra minutes in the air.
This trip was worth the money a great experience i would recommend it to everyone.
Had an awesome experience. Took my hubby on the helicopter ride for his 30th. Staff was very friendly, pleasant and punctual. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has never flown. This was both of our first time and we had a blast!
All staff were polite, friendly and efficient, making sure we were safe at all times.
The pilot was chatty but didn't overdo it and left us to enjoy the flight.
Pricey but worth it because you see New York in all its glory.
Although when we arrived, it seemed a bit chaotic. This was an amazing way to see New York. Well worth the money and would thoroughly recommend it
An absolutely fabulous experience. It was fantastic to have an aerial view of all the major landmarks in Manhattan, resulting in some beautiful photographs. A friendly crew and pilot made it all worthwhile. Something we will nwver forget.
