Our helicopter trip was absolutely fantastic! A highlight of our holiday. It was a special treat for us as its not a cheap thing, but it was well worth it. The views you get are amazing as you fly over Manhattan. The pilot put us at our ease and he pointed out all the important places for us to see. I was lucky as I got to sit in the front with the pilot. I'd love to do it again!
