This is a try slick operation. Everything is well timed and fully explained. The views are amazing and you are all on headphones and mic so you can talk as a group or with the pilot. Our pilot was really good and provided some interesting commentary. This is a great way to understand the structure of the city and orientate yourself. There are lockers there to secure your bags, because you can only take sunglasses, cameras and phones on board (not hats, bags, loose items). Careful with the key, I dropped mine on the flight line but they fortunately found it. All in all, well worth the $$$


Fantastic service, got the deluxe flight. Was totally worth the views! Pilot was super professional and even though the weather was sub par we had a blast! 100% recommend


Seeing the city in a new way thank you yo everyone there Loved every minute of it. Recommend it to everyone


I'm from Brooklyn every New Yorker should get to see the City this way its not just for tourists will be back again with friends


I loved every second of the heliNY experience Can’t say once in a lifetime as plan to do it every-time I am in big apple area


Everything was super smooth from the beginning to the buying process until you left the helicopter. Everyone was very kind and very helpful. Highly recommended


Loved every minute. Great staff. Good commentary. The floor to ceiling windows give great views. Even though it was quite windy the pilot kept us steady.


The best experience we did whilst in NYC. First time in a helicopter and always wanted that to be in New York. Everyone were really friendly and helpful.


The tour was great, but there are only 5 seats in the back. So if you're planning on sharing the experience with someone, just hope that they don't get the front seat and leave you on the back. You don't really get a choice on this.


Staff were amazing. Very welcoming and very cheerful. We loved this experience. Would definitely recommend. You will not regret booking.
