Viator VIP: NYC Night Helicopter Flight and Statue of Liberty Cruise

New York City, New York

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The cruise is aboard a "New York Water Taxi" - Large boat with good viewing windows, an open top deck and open fore deck. Got to within 200 m of Ellis Is. Weather was clear and ample opportunity for photos. VIP Tour - We were identified and treated like VIP's. Others on board who were not doing to helicopter add on were most envious. After Statue cruise (20 mins) we were dropped on New Hersey side of Hudson River. 6 x Passenger on our flight. Modern, clean and well piloted. Good informative commentary without being too intrusive. Lights of New York were amazing. We flew up the Hudson from almost Battery Point to Lower Manhattan, then turned and back (gave all passenger equal viewing of NYC at night. Total flight approx. 12 mins. Definitely worth doing on a trip to NYC.

My Review

One of our favourite NYC experiences. Our guide Marcus was on time and "bam" straight into it. He had us jumping out into Times Square traffic (stationary of course) for those quintesential NYC shots with Cabs, cops, crowds, traffic and lights. Onto Central Park, then Brooklyn Bridge and Soho. Marcus explained the subway to us and during our walk provided a real insight into NYC, the different areas and it's people. Plenty of photos taken (over 100) and these were provided in a fast manner via e-mail link to a WinZip file. No issues whatsoever. This is ideal as a first day in NYC to get a feel for the city, the subway and the layout, whilst in the safe hands of an experienced guide. You then have the experience to do your own exploring of one of the world's great cities.

Viator VIP: Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty and 9/11 Memorial

New York City, New York

My Review

Great activity. We met Joey our NYC native guide O/S Empire State. Group of approx. 15. Organised entry into Empire State which is well signed and organised with many uniformed staff to assist. Speedy ride to the 87 floor. View was terrific, although it was a little cold at 0815 in the morning. (and a bit breezy up there) We had 30 mins viewing time then down to ride an open topped double decker thru NYC streets to the Intrepid Museum on the Hudson River. This is a decommissioned aircraft carrier with a submarine beside and many planes and other exhibits and tours on board. We then got a water taxi to battery point where we walked through Wall Street precinct to Ground Zero. Joey provided excellent commentary with many stops of note. 9-11 memorial was busy but we got thru security in around 10 mins. Very solemn place which makes anyone reflect on humanity, it's failings and it's triumphs. Back to the water taxi (past the squirrels in Battery Park) for a cruise to the Statue of Liberty and finally returned to the Intrepid point on East Terrace. Was more than I anticipated and good value for money.

My Review

Absolutely fantastic day. Limo pick up, safe and fast flight to the canyon and gobsmacking scenery. The immense size and depth of the canyon cannot be conveyed in words - It's simply breath taking. This is not cheap, but is excellent value. I would recommend this to anyone as a "bucket list" tick off
