The tour was amazing, well narated, highly recommend the experience. Definate revisit!
Absolutely fantastic experience . We took the private tour for four ( mum and dad plus 16 and 12 year old boys ) . I was a bit worried as it was raining and a bit grey but it was fantastic - visibility was still good . One tip is make sure your taxi driver knows exactly where he is going as ours tried to drop us off at the main helicopter port which was a good 10 minutes drive from where we were supposed to be . We did the tour on the second day after we arrived which I'd recommend as the boys already knew some of the landmarks which they'd seen from the ground .
Fantastic day - caught the last of the sunshine which made it so special - the pilot was so good and really friendly as well as making the trip special with so much knowledge -
We booked the private tour because there were only four of us and we wanted the experience just for us otherwise we would probably have had another two people on our flight and it was for my husband's 50th and daughter's 21st birthdays so a very special occasion. The staff were very friendly and efficient and safety is a top priority as it should be. The weather was good so visibility was great. The pilot told us certain landmarks as we went overhead and the view was spectacular. Our tour took us over Central Park and the New York Yankee Stadium as well and lasted 20 minutes and it was, in my opinion, the best way to see Central Park in all its glory. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour and there wasn't anything to dislike about it.
Fantastic 20 Minutes flying over New York and seeing the sites from the air, we arrived early but were accommodated straight away. Would recommend this to anyone looking to see New York from the sky, really professional slick experience well done to all.
Excellent experience, 1st class service from all at Downtown heliport.
Once in a lifetime ride with expert pilot giving commentary on all aspects of New York.
I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the Big Apple.
We have just come back from NY.
Our helicopter tour was an amazing experience, one which we will never forget. My sons were 18 and 21 so this was their birthday surprise. We will never forget our great tour with Captain Kirk. If you could say a Big Thank You to him for us.
Hopefully one day we will return. Our holiday was such a great one. We will never forget our time in NY - what a great city.
Fantastic. Highly efficient operation with ground staff determined to make sure you enjoy your day. Well worth paying to have the helicopter for your own group/ couple. Very professional pilots, well maintained helicopters, all in all value for money.
Great views, good aircraft, great service. Brought our trip forward by 24 hours no problem at all with change of arrangements .
Good communications, great personnel, helped with disabled person I was travelling with, fantastic views!
Great service, the staff were helpful and relaxed the trip itself was excellent.
This spectacular tour gave us brilliant views of the New York skyline as well as some well known locations such as the Statue of Liberty and Central Park. The tour guide was very helpful and informative
We were a few minutes late- not a problem! The staff was courteous and professional. The pilot was fun, informative, and friendly.
Worth the money!
Wow, this was definiitely the best thing we did as a family in New York. I read all the reviews good and not so good before I booked, so I was prepared for this to be less than smooth. However I can honestly say it was a fantastic experience and I would really recommend it. It was well organised, we were not sat for long before we were taken to the helicopter and the pilot was friendly and gave us lots of information. Kids loved it, views were fantastic, want to do it all again!!
WOW WOW and a further WOW .... Worth EVERY Penny and SO MUCH CHEAPER Than buying direct from the Operator ..... We were allowed to change our Day, And our time ... Nothing was to to much trouble for them ....
Arrived early as we were eager and didn't want to miss our "slot", processed efficiently, then told we could go early if we were happy with this ( private flight for 4 )Flight fantastic, I'm told the pilot gave a commentary ( but was far too busy photographing to notice ) sights sensational, weather stunning, and we all landed safely - couldn't be better - hence the 5 stars.
Most amazing way to see New York. Extremely well run operation through all aspects of the tour. Would highly recommend.
Great tour! Tony, our pilot, was outstanding and the ground crew were also wonderful. Worth every penny for the private tour!
