Exceeded expectations.We were lucky and had clear blue skies for our visit. Operations were smooth in the pre-flight area and all the staff were great.During the flight were almost speechless at the sensational views, the pilot provided a commentary to help pick out what we were seeing and due to the turnaround both sides got to see everything.Yes it is expensive if you just look at the cost per minute but we thought it was 100% worth it for the experience and you won't regret it!

Absolutely brilliant. Without doubt the highlight of our New York trip. Very well organised at check in (we had pre-completed all the necessary paperwork) all went smoothly. The flight was excellent, we luckily picked the right day, beautiful wall to wall blue skies. There were 5 of us in our group so we didn't have to share with anyone else (normally there are 6 passengers). Highlight for me was that I got to sit in the front with the pilot! Staff were all lovely and friendly, which helped to make this a memorable, never to forget experience

This is a once in a lifetime treat - we booked the Manhattan 12/15 min ride and it did not disappoint. Felt very safe and the staff were very professional. Worth every penny. Highly recommend.

We were, unfortunately, unable to take our tour as reserved due to a canceled fight from NC to LGA for a planned trip to celebrate my wife’s 50th birthday, but the folks at New York Helicopter Tour were more than generous with their cancellation policy and I highly recommend doing business with them. Looking forward to our rescheduled flight!

Nor sure why there might be any bad reviews for this. The whole experience was seemless. Arrived a bit early, we waited and was given an update on how it will go. Security check, safety info and we we're all set. Great experience and the pilot was great. Good info during flight and amazingly views. Would highly recommend. Staff were slick and to the point no hidden surprises here. Top draw.
