We were treated like VIP's. The tour was excellent and the service exceeded expectations. Thank you!
Just amazing from start to finish, tour guides were informative, friendly and funny. Boat trip had great views but the helicopter flight was sensational, simply the best way to see Americas greatest city. The only slight criticism I have is that it isn't obvious where to pick up the viator tickets
AWESOME experience. Would definitely do it again in a heart beat.
Spectacular experience, the trip on the water taxi was good and the guide very entertaining, but the highlight was the helicopter ride, wow what an amazing sight from the air, this is most certainly one of those must do things if you go to NY.
On our flight we had a bonus couple of extra minutes flight time as the other helicopter on the heli pad was delayed taking off.
A totally unique experience and opportunity to view New York!! The boat trip to start was just fantastic. What an excellent time of the day to view New York from the water. Looking at the financial district, back up town just makes you realize and appreciate why this city is loved and envied the world over.
The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island - you need to see it to believe it. We had enough time to take LOTS of photos. The crew were also extremely helpful and polite with some great stories.
The helicopter ride was the highlight of the evening. My girlfriend was sitting up front and was extremely excited having never been in helicopter before. Truly wonderful and unique way how to see NYC.
Our only minor concern was the transportation back to the city from New Jersey. We thought we would have a water transport straight back to town. Instead we had a driver who would drop everyone where they needed. Comfortable transport, great way to meet everyone, unfortunately being the last ones to get dropped off we were home rather late.
Saying that we would recommend this to everyone interested in viewing NYC from the sea and air.
It was truly a great and wonderful experience. Thank you Viator ;-)
Fantastic tour. First a nice hour in the boat. Then the boat took us to the helicopter. Exiting when the helicopter took a turn around Empire State Building. After that a car took us to our choice of destination. Really recommend it.
Fantastic! The views from both the boat and helicopter were amazing,it was the highlight of our trip
OMG what a wonderful experience - absolutely brilliant. The guide on the cruise was great (so was the champagne!) - a great way to see the statue as you get up quite close - the helicopter trip was amazing - thoroughly recommended !!
Absolutely brilliant. One of the more expensive tours we did but was worth every penny.
I'd been to NYC many times over the years and decided to share the city with my mom as she'd never been. Normally, I don't look into "tourist" tours but really thought it would be a great gift for my mom. Took this cruise and night helicopter flight and just LOVED it. I kept thinking to myself that I should have done this before. It was the most magical thing I've ever done in NYC...with the exception of shopping, that is. All kidding aside, this is a must do for anyone who wants a special way of seeing the city. May consider a daytime flight the next time I visit.
The helicopter flight over Manhattan during the evening was amazing! The flight was smooth and not scary at all (like we thought it might be). It was so beautiful. I highly recommend it! The pilot had a very pleasant personality.
It was really cool.
Lifehack/Hint: If you are the the lightest person in group - you get to sit at the 2nd pilot's seat, not with other tourists.
What a tour! From start to finish we were treated as VIP customers. First, we boarded a private water taxi and headed to the heliport ans we were the only ones in the building late at night. The night flight was an amazing way to see NYC. We flew by central park, saw the lights of Times Square, and could even see the new freedom towers construction project! Our guide was very knowledgeable and told us all of the sites as we were passing them. To top the night off we took a champagne cruise around the Statue of Liberty. What a memorable night!
I loved this tour and would highly recommend it! Both the helicopter tour and boat ride were a great way to see the city and the skyline. The helicopter ride at night was a unique and memorable ride. This was my first helicopter ride and I will remember it forever. Our helicopter guide was very friendly and pointed out all the places that we were viewing. After, we got to cruise the river to see the statue if liberty and Ellis Island and finish off with a champagne toast!
