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.
