Cannot rate this trip highly enough, crew and ground staff all excellent and the staff on the cruise were also excellent, if your thinking of doing a helicopter flight i would highly recommend doing the night flight as the views of New York's skyline at night took our breath away.
Outstanding!!!! Amazing views well informed commentary, polite and friendly staff. Half hour wait between flight and cruise was spent in a great bar over the road. NYC night flight and cruise A MUST DO.
Fantastic thing to experience. .helicopter flight was great and compare on the river taxie trip to statue of liberty was wasted on there he was so funny and quick witted. . Fantastic only criticism would be of the helicopter staff could have been more pleasant
The was one of the best moments of our holiday we got to see New York City in a whole different way it was amazing id recommend this to anyone and its a must if you are going to New York.
This was an amazing experience. The weather was raining, cold and windy but DO NOT let this put you off. The experience was amazing and made fun by all involved. The staff friendly and willing to help, pilot and tour guides were very informative and full of LOTS of knowledge and fun filled facts.
Excellent trip, friendly pilot and very accommodating staff, bit of a wait between flight n boat trip, but excellent bar nearby!
We missed our flight due to an oversight on the booking receipt. When you copy and paste the address on the email and create an event in the iPhone calendar, it creates a hyperlink to the GPS map, but the part that says Downtown Heliport is not highlighted. If you are unfamiliar with NYC piers and you follow the link, it takes you to Pier 92, on the Hudson River. We showed up on time, but on the complete opposite side of town. Fortunately, Our flight was cancelled due to weather and we were issued a refund but it was our last night in NY and we were unable to rebook for the next night. We definitely want to rebook the next time we are in NY, but in the meantime, I thought I would send in this information to help other future travelers that use iPhones (after all, we are such a small sub-set of the population!:) I am giving a 5 star rating because I can only imagine how amazing this trip will be once we are able to- Merry Christmas and we hope to fly with you soon!
AMAZING! Definitely one of the highlights of our trip to NYC. The VIP night helicopter was an unbelievable experience with amazing views and the cruise also amazing. The cruise guide was so knowledgeable and so enthutheastic we really got a feel for New York. Fantastic a memory we will never forget!
I would strongly recommend this tour. We did it within hours of arriving and it kicked the weekend off in style. It was also useful as it gave you a good overview of Manhattan which helped get our bearings. Great staff at the helicopter lounge and the guide on the boat tour was very knowledgeable.
Best night helicopter ride was amazing ! Bit of a wait for the boat so went for a drink ❤️Boat was cool then ride back to near our hotel ! All in all great value for money !
Truly amazing. Missing out if you don't do this tour. Breathtaking views.
To do this night was so exciting, even more than in the daytime! From the air the lights of Broadway were clear and bright, the new 1WTC was incredible and spooky as the fog settled and 'The Lady' well what can be said! It was about 3 degrees so most of the Cruise was indoors but still a great night overall. The only criticism was the time between the Helicopter Flight and the Cruise (about 50 minutes) and because it was so cold finding a Starbucks was essential.
Great Flight lots to see, People were very friendly and knew what things to point out
Took my wife for a tour and she is scared of flying. The flight was smooth and very informative. The pilot was great. So far it was our favourite part of the trip.
Breathtaking views in a spacious helicopter with huge glass windows, disappointed that it was not sunset or nighttime though but amazing in day light.
The boat trip was at night we set sail at sunset and the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan and New Jersey by night were well worth the trip, we then sailed under the famous three Bridges, Brooklyn, Manhaatan and Williamsburg which were stunning if you cannot afford the helicopter just book an evening/night cruise, to get a great view of the lights.
Fantastic experience and booking!! Worth every penny paid and would defiantly recommend this. Very friendly staff, who provided free transport after boot tour from docking area to Times Square for all 6 members of our party in a limousine. Very impressed by this and made the experience even more magical.
Great service at the helicopter port, helpful staff who guided us through all safety instructions. Flight was amazing, great views and brilliant pilot who gave us a detailed commentary of sightings.
Boot cruise was brilliant, great journey and experience seeing NYC over sunset. Again, very friendly staff with strong knowledge of main buildings and landmarks. Boot stopped close to status of liberty so all guests could get great photos.
Overall, the best experience in NYC and would recommend to all.
Great! I was one of the best experiences in NYC. Very professional and gente people. Helicopter ride was amazing. Boat ride very very nice. Highly recommended
A must do in NYC! The helicopter flight albeit over way too quickly was breathtaking, all those famous sites with an uninterrupted view, well worth it. The cruise was brilliant, so close to the statue looking stunning all lit up, our guide was the icing on the cake hilarious and informative!
An unforgettable experience. It is a shame that the flights are no longer possible when it is dark but the views of New York are amazing. We coupled this with a night river cruise to the Statue of Liberty. This was also a great trip and the commentary from the guide was superb and extremely informative.
I loved the tour... I surprised my husband as a valentines day gift and he was super excited and very happy... He can't wait to do it again ☺️
well organized and fantastic experience,helicopter felt like a VIP one and views were fab,only down side we were dropped at pier for water taxi at 6.45pm and when we looked at tickets cruise did not leave until 7.30,we were left to wait for 45mins and the temperature was -9!!! cruise was great if not a little hairy as the hudson river was frozen so boat struggled a bit,but they got us to statue of liberty which was amazing.crew were fab,informative and funny and luckily hot drinks were available on board.we were then dropped in times square,well worth the money and the frozen toes!
