I booked the tour as a surprise for my family and it was really worth it.
Despite the fact that the weather was not perfect, you can see the full beauty of the fascinating skyline of Manhattan. This was truly one of the highlights of our NYC trip.
What an amazing experience, everything went well and my daughter enjoyed it immensely as the helicopter ride was bought for her 40th birthday. She also got to sit up front with the pilot. Would definitely recommend.
Having done this last August, we took other members of our family to experience the same. Stunning. A lovely sunny day, last week in October. The pilot was great, very friendly (Geoff) and happy to answer any questions. First time in a helicopter for our nephews aged 13 and 17. They loved it. A must do for first time travellers. Good value for money, we booked the 18 mins trip which goes so quickly, actually feels like a lot less. Best part of the holiday.
This tour was beyond amazing! Words cannot describe it. Dave, the pilot, was awesome, talking to all of us in the helicopter and engaging us as much as possible. Highly recommended tour!
It was brilliant - ultimately the highlight of my very first visit to New York and a fantastic way for my son to celebrate his 18th birthday. The pilot - Andrew - was great, very friendly and welcoming and made us feel at ease. Highly recommended experience.
What an amazing experience. This had to be one of the highlights of my trip. Had a massive grin on my face throughout the whole flight - loved every minute.
Celebrating our 25th anniversary, and to top if off my wife got to sit up front as co-pilot. WOW, what a view.
I took my boyfriend on the trip for his birthday. We have been on a few helicopter trip before and this one was by far the best with the friendliest service. I would decently book again
The tour was AMAZING! I will be back in the spring with my daughter to take it again.
We had an amazing time doing this. This is the right way to see NYC!!!
This trip was for my daughters birthday. We both thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and we had the perfect day weatherwise. It was lovely and sunny and the sky was blue. My daughter took all the photos but she has had to go back to her work. The staff were excellant and explained everything very well.
That was amazing!!!! The staff were all very helpful. The pilot was very charming and friendly!
It was worth the expense!! No better way to see New York, Lady Liberty, not to mention the Stadium and the George Washington Bridge! Thank you!
Was s fantastic experince , that you should not mist while visiting NY
Couldn,t fault it great views , 5 in the back and 1 in front plenty of photo chances , as both sides could see everything. Either going up river or coming back down
A wonderful flying experience. A little surprised to be Charged $2 to store a handbag and $20 for one photo as they say you cannot take your own- both should be within the price considering how much the tour cost but still got some wonderful views of New York and Far Cheaper than booking with Virgin!
What a fantastic experience to see New York this way. The Viator ground staff were very kind and
helpful ,and so was the pilot. Would definitely do it again - great value for money. Will definitely recommend this tour to my friends visiting N/York.
Perfect. Fantastic views of NYC. Crew and pilot were very friendly. all together great experience
This was the highlight of our trip. I wanted to treat my wife, who had never been on a helicopter or in NYC. The weather was perfect and the afternoon flight worked well with our plans to visit the 9-11 memorial in the morning. The heliport was easy to get to and once there, we were treated well. Our pilot was awesome and did a great job pointing out the landmarks and sights. My wife got to ride "shotgun", so she was elated. We were able to take video of the entire trip and many pictures, so memories will always be with us and we have been happy to share details with friends, family and co-workers. Despite the cost, the flight is a must if your visit is a "bucket list". We were not able to fly over Yankee stadium because of an ongoing game, so I wasn't able to drop a Red Sox hat onto the field. I guess the Yankees lucked out this time.
For us it was amazing, best weather conditions, brillant view, well organized, suffizient Information during the flight given by Pilot - however we'd especially booked German Audio Guide , it was not available...
Brilliant tour, pilot was amazing and views are spectacular!! Everything was perfectly timed and got some Great pics of New York City. Couldn't have asked for better service from viator. Very very happy.
This is a must for anyone going to New York! It is a truely amazing experience. The heliport is close to Sateen Island ferry boat terminal, easy to get to. The staff are excellent. Be aware that you need to pay $30 tax per person when you arrive for your flight, and $2 for a locker for your belongings. It was easy to book with Viator, and the best price (we did the 18mins flight). will certainly book any future trips with Viator.
Very nice tour and worth every penny. Good and fast organization even though it was a weekend closer to end of day. Pilot was very nice and friendly. Highly recommend this to everybody who visit Manhattan as it doesn't take much time, amazing views of the city and great experience overall.
