I received this as a gift and it was an amazing experience and what a great view of the city! I would definately recommend this tour to anybody going to New York!
We had the most amazing time and would highly recommend it to anyone.We also did a walking tour with the company with Missy and the day was unreal, Missys knowledge was out of this world and she was a joy to be around.I hope that gets back to her.Thank you Viator for a great holiday xx
The staff were pleasant and treated us well. Safety was key and it was always paramount that we followed thier instructions to ensure our security. The flight was excellent. There wa ample room on the flight. Due to our weight there was only 4 people on our flight. The pilot was friendly and exercised a professional attitude when either talking on flight comms or talking to the passengers. My wife and I were thoroughly happy with the flight. It was my wife's 50th birthday so especially enjoyable. Thanks :-) I would recommend to others with hesitation.
Myself and my 5 year old son did this helicopter tour and we really enjoyed it, its well worth the cost the 15 minutes seemed like a long time and to see New York from the sky is a life experience, the tour was professionally run and I don't have any complaints, they even take a photo of your party next to the helicopter and you can then purchase the photo afterwards.
My daughter took this tour on her own, as I had previously done it before. The piolt was friendly, helpful and informative. She was well looked after. Not any waiting around, in up and out.... Although don't arrive to early cos they won't let you in, and there is no where for spectators to wait but out side along the riverside. Again a definite must to see the big apple from above....also easy to get taxi just outside when finished.
Booked this tour on the morning of the trip. An easy booking process and payment in sterling offered. A great experience at the centre, fab staff with great attitudes especially considering the number of people they see each day. The flight was fantastic with informative commentary.
Cannot describe how good this was and great great value for money!
Simply brilliant! Booked an early slot and this meant no delays or long waits. Staff efficient and polite, also was very professional which gave me confidence as I was a little nervous. 'walker' to helicopter was great and let us take pictures, although the one he took and we bought was the best!
Excellent and easy location to get to. Original flight cancelled due to weather. No problem re booking us for another day. Strongly recommend.
The helicopter trip was very good I would book with viator again
Excellent experience, however I felt the pilot could have been a little more informative. We went as a party of 8, which went over 2 flights and the other party felt their pilot was much more informative.
Very professionally done. Pleasant, friendly staff. Fifteen minutes of fabulous sights! Pilot was terrific at giving overview of sights all while keeping Control informed. Would do it again in a heartbeat!
The whole trip was extremely well organised and the staff were polite and friendly. The owner was also present on the day and he had such a lovely disposition, with a kind and caring attitude towards his staff and guests. I would highly recommend to all (even those scared of heights or flying - as was I - it is only 15 minutes and you do not have time to worry about anything).
it was fun but my girlfriend was scared, but at end we both loved it.
Did this tour in 2011 with my brother when we ran the New York marathon. I wanted to bring my family back with me and immediately booked this again. The staff were superb. They take a photo of you before your flight outside the helicopter, I had my eyes closed. They went out of their way to take us out again for a further photo to make sure we had a good copy. Thanks guys
This was an amazing experience! We had a fantastic clear day and the view were incredible. Thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the trip.
This was a fabulous flight. Beautiful, sunny day and the only way to see the Statue of Liberty thanks to the government shutdown. Our pilot was informative and all the people instructing us and moving us around were super friendly. Best part of the week long vacation even if it was only 15 minutes. Great view from the front seat!! We got there early and got right in. We had to wait a while longer because the only picture they took of us was blurry so they retook it. Personally I thought we should have gotten a discount for the wait but at least we got a decent picture.
Best ever. It was my birthday, so I sat at the front next to the pilot :-)
