Excellent. Amazing views over Manhattan, helicopter ride was very comfortable. Highly recommended. Just remember the 30 each extra charge and the 2 locker fee although this is clearly stated in the tour info. on booking.

Annie took us on this fantastic, memorable trip. I was travelling with my daughter, granddaughter and sister-in-law. I had had helicopter ride before but even so as with them this was the highlight of our New York experience. It really helped that we had perfect conditions, blue sky and little wind. Would thoroughly recommend for that wow feeling.
