fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. Worth every penny (or cent!!) best way of seeing the city. The staff were polite and courteous new york stile.(there is a diffrence between british and new york politness some may say they are rude, we didnt).
Service was amazing...our pilot was great, and due to having to wait extra time for re-fuel, we got an extra 10mins....views were amazing and id recommend it to anyone visiting ny to do this in the earlier part of their trip.... u get a great overview of what manhatten is and get a understanding of how to get around city would definately do again next time i visit :)
This was one of the highlights of my first trip to NY. The staff really looked after you. The pilot was especially good and gave us a wonderful flight. It must be the best way to appreciate this amazing city.
Excellent experience, can't beat the views! The pilot and staff were friendly and helpful (except one lady on the 'greeting team' outside - but don't let her put you off!!)
An incredible, unforgettable and worthy experience, it leaves yourself amazed with the view and flight sensations.

Had booked online in advance and emailed to confirm a time for the tour. there were no delays, staff very efficient and pilot excellent. Our whole family 4 went together and while I was the only one nervous I need not have been. the tour was excellent. If I had to criticize anything it was the fact that we were not allowed to fly over Manhattan and the buildings. Bar that it was FAB!
A bit cramped but your up there for the views and they are sensational.
The 20 minute helicopter flight was superb. The organisation for the trip was excellent and everything ran according to plan. Well worth the money.
fantastic trip we had 20 mins this was definately worth it
The flight was an absolutely amazing experience! I called viator to confirm flight and time one day before departure. The lady viator was very friendly and arranged a flight at 12.30 which was our desired deadline. When arriving at the port there was no waiting time. Staff and pilot were very friendly. The flight was great - took us around the state of liberty, along the skyline of manhatten across the hudson and back to the heliport. I highly recommend this flight! Thanks!
Highly Recommended because it was the highlight of our trip, but be aware of a few things when you get to the pier! i booked the 20min approx flight but they marked our tickets as 15-17mins, this may seem petty but believe me it makes a huge difference when you are airborne!! i argued this with the desk and she checked the internet first before informing me that i was correct and changing our trip to 20min.The young man appointed to look after us took offence to me then and didnt even bother showing us the safety video. We had a long delay in the heliport due to a fueling issue but we were very well informed and the manager was very apologetic. Once up in helicopter it was fantastic and we were actually in the air for 25mins, it really is an amazing experience and one not to be missed while in New York.
It was a fantastic trip. It shpuld be written on the voucher that you have to set up a time before you go. We didn't do that and had to wait 3 hours.
Fantastic helicopter ride - travelled up the west side of Manhattan from the statue of liberty to the top of central park. Downside is all the waiting - we booked and had to wait 1 hour before we flew whereas the people in the helicopter with us just walked off the street and only waited 10 minutes.
