This was excellent, got a great view of the city from above, was a windy day so was a little bumpy which was expected. The pilot pointed out various points of interest. My first time in a helicopter and I loved it!!

We absolutely loved this! Was a present for my son's 18th so put him a big badge on and the pilot said a few times Happy Birthday... all of the staff also made a fuss of him which was brilliant. We got there an hour early and they accommodated us which was also perfect. Just a great experience and we had a beautiful sunny but cold December morning... Couldn't have asked for anything better.

Fabulous way to see New York. Our daughters had no idea, and thought we had gone to get a boat, were thrilled when we said we couldn't get a boat so we booked a helicopter instead! Our daughters sat in the front Nd we squashed in with another couple in the back. We could have had a private tour but that's more expensive.
