This is no way a cheap experience but was defiantly the highlight of my trip, certainly for views of NYC, if you can afford it! The ride is only 30 minutes but the views are spectacular. We went up and down the Hudson and saw the New York skyline in such a perfect way. I was speechless at the views of New York and much further away. You just need to do it the once but worth every penny (or dollar)

The whole experience was brilliant - from booking through to the actual flight. Really informative and easy to chose which type of flight we wanted and the Pilot, Todd, was so friendly and knowledgable. Would strongly recommend.

I gave myself a birthday present😍🎂🎉 I had promised my daughter a tour in New York five years ago. So I decided to give her this gift, on my 51st birthday. It was very pleasant to see the happiness stamped on her face. But it wasn't just my daughter, but my son-in-law and granddaughter too.😍 The most memorable thing during my ride was the pilot's smile. I think I fell in love.😍🥰🥂 I will definitely be back.

Over crowded and given an center seat with very limited outside view. The as350 helicopter has 4 across seating in the rear with the outside passengers blocking most of the window from the 2 inside passengers. The forward part of the helicopter had the pilot seat and 2 passenger seats squeezed in. Result was three heads blocking forward view from the rear seat. Waste of 400 dollars for my seat. Asked before our departure about seating next to a window and given the impression that each passenger would have a window for a view. Very dissatisfied with this trip.
