Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Big Apple Helicopter Tour of New York. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Everything was perfect on Viators end. However the appointment with the firm that actually runs the helicopter service means nothing. You still have to go and stand in the queue at the heliport along with other people who may have just walked in without a prior appointment.
On the day our tour was originally scheduled, there was heavy rain so we just called and rescheduled two days later. The whole process was very easy. So overall good experience.
What an incredible experience. Well worth every pound/dollar spent. We were well looked after pre and post flight by the staff who had great sense of humours. The views over Manhattan were unbelievable, especially of Cental Park and the Yankee Stadium. This was definitely the highlight of our trip!
Awesome!!! I booked this as a surprise for my wife, who is scared of heights!, so only went for a 15 minute one. We thought there would be more room in the helicopter but they put 6 of us in(4 at back, 2 at front with pilot). The pilot was great with his commentary through the headphones and the views were simply amazing, stunning and unforgettable. We felt so safe in there and at touchdown my wife was beaming and wanted more. Definitely recommend this to anyone
Amazing experience. This is a must do trip when visiting New York. Fantastic views of the Manhattan skyline from over the Hudson river.
This tour was excellent!!! We had a really great time and really enjoyed every minute!! I would recommend this to anyone and the staff were all great too.
very good way to see some of new york , good view from every seat in helicopter .
This was the second time we made a helicopter tour over The City. Also this time, we loved it ! Everything looks so tiny from up there, but evenso you get a beautiful view of everything at the same time. It was very exciting ! Thanks a lot for your way of helping us ! We also bought tickets for excursions in Rome a couple of years ago and there too we were very satisfied with our 'Viator vouchers'. Thanks a lot ! We will certainly be back, although I don't know where or when... Wait and see.....
Fantastic - over too quickly. Best photos of the trip, Definitely one to add to anyones bucket list.
My wife and I spent four nights in New York at te beginning of April. We had the most amazing time seeing lots of New Yorks attractions and staying in The Pennsylvania hotel which was perfectly situated. Our helicopter ride was a special treat for my wife's 40th birthday and was booked for 12:30 pm on the Wednesday. We arrived a bit early so to make sure we knew where to go and was told we could take our flight there and then! It was a lovely sunny clear sky day, perfect for a flight. The flight lasted 12-15 minutes and we had commentary from our Pilate which was great! The whole experience was one we'll never forget. What a way to see New York!! We would thourghly recommend it to everyone. Take your camera and a camcorder and capture Manhattan on film! AMAZING!!
