New York Helicopter Tour
, Oct 2019
Great visit, a bit short. Personally I have expected to see some spots from East river side. Well organised. Amasing views of Manhattan.
If you have the chance: do it!

During the booking stage I was not so sure if I had made the right choice helicopter flight. There are many offers, would this be the right one?? But let me reassure you: from welcoming us, giving safety instruction to the flight itself, all was organized in a personal and very efficient way. The 18 to 20 minute fight we booked was worth every dollar. Of course we were extremely lucky with the weather. The pilot gave us some useful information about all the mayor sights down below. From every seat we had a excellent view. I can recommend this tour.
So neat

Excellent trip with a perfect commentary from the pilot. Support team was efficient and helpful. Just wish I had booked a longer trip.
Highlight of my life

This was the most amazing thing we’ve ever had done. The staff was great! Friendly and knowledgeable. The only thing I think I was bummed out about is the photo before we got on to the helicopter. That is something I really wanted to buy after but they only took one picture and my hair was flying all around. I think that they need to have one on stand by for prior to flight or don’t take it at all.
Amazing birthday!

I booked this tour for my wife and I for her birthday, and she couldn't have been happier with the experience. Neither of us had been on a helicopter before, and we both found it to be an awesome unique perspective on the city, flying alongside and near the tops of the buildings. Safety instructions were straightforward and easy to follow, and we had no doubt we were in good hands with the pilot & crew. (No less than an amusement park ride.) The pilot provided some fun facts about the landmarks we flew by, which added to the experience. Note to others as we weren't sure what to expect from the Viator description: The helicopter seated seven people plus the pilot, in two rows. Even in a middle back seat, I didn't feel like I missed any views - there was enough glass all around to see well on either side, and pilot also went out-and-back on each leg of the route, so people on both sides got a direct view of every landmark.

Nice trip nice weather too short trip. View of New York from the air with family. We all enjoyed it. Un fortunately too numerous in the helicopter when booking was for us five only in a small helicopter. Little disappointed.
A must do when in NYC
, Dec 2018
This is a special experience, I suggest it to anybody being only for short on NYC as the views are breathtaking! The entire personal was so kind and made us feel very comfortable! The helicopters were looking very well maintained and our pilot was pointing out the highlights during the flight. The duration was indeed 20 minutes as described and there were no extra costs to pay.
Ubeatable view!
, Nov 2018
Absolutely amazing flight, so much fun and fantastic views! But time passes too quickly, so be careful: If you spend all your air time taking pictures you miss the experience! Pilot commented and guided underway. Costumer reception was handled very well by professional staff and crew.
