    This was an amazing experience! We saw so much at once it was easier to put into perspective where we were when we weren't in the helicopter. We would definitely do it again!

    Helicopter ride was amazing, we watched a short Health and Safety presentation prior to our flight. We got fitted with a life jacket then made our way out to helicopter. The views over manhattan were fabulous, the scenery was stunning and we were really lucky with the weather. Only downside the pilot spent most of his time talking to other pilots, eventually towards the end of the trip pointed out some landmarks to us. All in all an amazing ride over manhattan, well worth the money!

    Great experience. The helicopter semd better than the others with larger windows. We were a little bit late so got very quick service through the terminal and was up in the air before we knew it. The pilot was also great. A lot of money for the short trip but one of those things you don't do every day.
