This was the perfect flight for my first helicopter ride. Just the right amount of time in the air to enjoy the sights but not lose my nerve. It was a perfectly clear day so I got some great photos - especially since I was up front next to the pilot! A totally worthwhile experience and unbeatable way to view Manhattan.
What a great way to see NYC and get a fantastic perspective on this great city! The tour was really well run. Make sure you do it early on your trip to NYC so you can plan the next few days!
this is a great way to see NYC. it's a short time in the helicopter and you don't actually fly over the city or central park - you need to book a longer flying time to fly over the city, this trip is good if your short on time and money
Views from the helicopter were outstanding...the flight, the seat everything was amazing! The customer service felt a bit rushed - i appreciate that they have a lot of people to process in a day but we never watched a safety video and the life jacket was just handed to you and we were told - everyone knows how to use these dont they?!? Never the less the flight itself totally made up for this - the clear day made all the difference.
the first what i did when I arrived to NYC - I took this helicopter tour with this Company!!! And that was absolutely right choice to do!! It was fantastic experience, great team that arranged all tour on highly professional level! Confident, dynamic and extremely friendly young team made my 15 min of flight unforgettable for the rest of my life. Special Thank you to the captain Andrew Woods who made my flight more exciting !! :))
It was amazing, only 12 minutes long but it felt like a lot longer. The staff and pilot were extremely friendly and helpful. My tour was delayed for the arrival of the vice president but they happily fitted me in later on that same evening.
fantastic experience well and efficiently run would definitely recommend
From booking thru to flight excellent communication. Flight was excellent with great commentary - highlight of our trip.
The most wonderful experience I've ever had great views of Manhattan def recommend it
FABULOUS EXPERIENCE, I can't rate this highly enough. It's a must on a New York visit. Our pilot Andrew Woods was brilliant. Thanks for the experience.
The service at the heliport was very good. The staff was friendly. The helicopter ride was evrything we had dreamt it would be. The views over Manhattan were absoulutely breathtaking. Pilot said it might be a bit choppy but we did not feel a thing. Would definitely do it again. Only sad that they rushed us onto the helicopter without taking our picture. When we returned to buy the picture all they could say was sorry that they had not taken ours out of all the flights taking off that day. All in all it was the ride that mattered and we definitely enjoyed it - worth every dollar.
First time in New York so wanted to see a many sites as possible - nice clear day .great
A fabulous experience seeing NYC from the air. Whilst the weather wasn't as good as the day before we will never forget flying over the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and alongside Manhattan above the skyline as far as Central Park. How else can you look DOWN on the Empire State Buidling?! The arrangements and ground service were all very professional with allotted times meaning no queuing. Highly recommended
The Tour was great, just a bit short. We would have loved to fly over Manhatten. But the view was breathtaking anways. Very competent and friendly staff as well. I'd book it again!
Absolutely amazing !! Loved it front seat with pilot helicopter had part clear floor
My second time flying over NYC but this time I took my little sister for her birthday treat. She was a nervous flyer so I wanted her to experience a helicopter ride. We were extremely lucky as the weather had not been great but the day we flew the sun came out and the views were spectacular. It felt a lot longer than previous experiences. The safety briefing felt a little too brief and not particularly reassuring and there was a rather rude lady on the door when we arrived. When we tried to enter through the welcome door she flew over and rolled her eyes and tutted at us which wasn't a great experience. Other than that, the staff were lovely and it was a memorable experience that we would definitely repeat!
I BOOKED A MANHATTAN SKY TOUR AS AN EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENT FOR MY HUSBAND, FOR THE 23rd NOV 2013. THIS WAS OUR 2nd TIME IN NEW YORK AND I THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A NICE SURPRISE. HE WAS VERY NERVOUS BEFOREHAND, BUT WAS PUT AT EASE STRAIGHT AWAY AND THOROUGHLY ENJOYED THE TRIP.IT WAS FABULOUS. THANKS
