    Absolutely amazing experience. It was my wife and I's first time in a helicopter and my wife was a little scared before we went up and requested that she sit in the middle at the back. By the time we touched down she was kicking herself that she did not sit in the front which is where they wanted to have her sit as the view is better from the front. They take you to look at all the major attractions and a flight up the Hudson as well. Just book and do it as it is a bucket list item.

    Wow! If there is one experience that you must do, then its the helicopter tour! There is so much to do and see in New York, but if your only there for a few days, then this is a 'must do' on your list of activities to see all of the key sites..The scenes are breathtaking and the pilot is really friendly and knowledgeable to help make to most of your time in the air.. Safety is paramount importance to the tour and the team take every moment to ensure you fully understand the safety precautions.. Would I do this again? Absolutely!

    This trip was very good except this issue that most people seem to have and that is how much actual time in the air do you get. I booked and paid for a 30 minute trip but actually only got 20 minutes, which is a quite a difference especially, when you are paying 233 per person or so depending on exchange rate. I was not impressed with this. I like to get what i pay and whats promised in the advert, as most people do!! So although the flight was interesting, i will leave it up to the reader to decide for themselves if its value for money or not!
