    Great visit, a bit short. Personally I have expected to see some spots from East river side. Well organised. Amasing views of Manhattan.

    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.

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

    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.

    Friendly and competent staff. Made us feel very relaxed. Great views ! Highly recommend this flight and will do it again!

    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.

  • 23-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.

    Viator has several helicopter tours in New York. I chose this one instead of the cheaper ones because it spends more time over Manhattan. The price includes a required heliport fee, which the cheaper tours don't include in their prices and you still have to pay it. That means the amount you pay in the end isn't as different as it seems it's not a 100 difference, it's more like 40-60. Most of the tours around this price also fly over Brooklyn, Bronx, and/or Queens. If you're willing to pay that amount but you want to focus on Manhattan, I recommend this one.

    Fabulous helicopter tour. Very well organised, was very impressed with staff and pilot. Views were fantastic and commentary from pilot was great. Would definitely recommend this tour to see the fantastic New York sky line. Fantastic.

    Ok I have to say totally scared on this helicopter. The company was great and I was safe but it was scary. But I survived and they were excellent with service and calming me down .
