Great trip. Helicopter ride was fantastic & shuttle too & from the station was perfect. My only complaint would be you’re not allowed to take any photos of the helicopter before you get on it then you can take your cameras out & do what you like. This is because they take a pic of you with the helicopter & charge an absolute fortune for it.That’s a shame they let themselves down with that otherwise all good 😁


My first time visiting New York and the experience was Amazing and My daughter loved it. Very informational. I’ll go again.


Very helpful staff, specially Jessica. We were in difficult situation and staff helped a lot and we really appreciate it


There was an unusual incident on our flight. The flight was emergency landed midway. When we surfaced the entire situation to the reception crew, they got defensive instead of offering refund. We take helicopter rides once a decade, so they should have refunded the large investment I made in the experience instead of just offering free photos


Great experience. Staff very friendly. Pilot Jimmy was great. Very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend


Great experience!! Great team!! You should do it at least once in a lifetime. If you go at night you will see the city all light up!!!


It was a great experience. We had a lot of fun. The view was amazing and the weather very good. Thank you.


We enjoyed the ride and the process was smooth from beginning to the end. Staff was friendly and knowable!


Booked it for my husbands birthday and The experience was absolutely amazing and staff was great. Would definitely book again and bring the kids next time.


An experience you will remember forever! Super smooth flight with outrageous views of colourful Manhattan skyline at night.
