    For our son's 13th birthday we decided to take him for a surprise helicopter tour of New York. The overall experience was excellent. Our reserved time was for 1 o'clock but we arrived a whole hour earlier and asked if we can be taken for an earlier tour that day. The person at the control and schedule desk was very attentive and accommodating to our needs and let us go for a noon tour, a whole hour before the schedule one. They saved us time that we spent elsewhere that day in New York. They even allowed our son to sit with the pilot in the front which gives you the best view possible. We could tell that he was very excited to sit with the pilot! His birthday wish came true in that moment! The flight itself was very smooth and the view out the window was just spectacular! For that I give them an excellent score!

    Excellent trip - totally worth it. I sat at the front as it was my birthday and the pilot played a happy birthday song on the radio - very special.
