New York Helicopter Tour: Ultimate Manhattan Sightseeing

We had an excellent experience! Due to bad weatherforcast, we asked te reschedule, which was no problem at all. The welcome was friendly and after a short safetymovie, we were ready to go. Friendly pilot too, who gave some explaining. There is so much to see that it is probably better to know the city already because then it's easyer to recognize the highlights already (that's what we did). We took a private ultimate tour (because we're 5), although the heli had only place for 5 guests so that was a bit sour... One tip: in the helicopter it is extremely warm so jackets and scarves are totally unnecessary ;-) Thanks to the team!

The view is jaw-dropping! The headphones cancel all noises and you can chat with your fellow passengers. Our pilot was very nice and experienced. We flew over the Statue of Liberty and the Hudson River. It was so beautiful, I want to do it again!

A very pleasant experience. The trip showed New York from the water, a great view. The pilot and the rest of the staff seemed very competent and service minded.

I loved my experience. It was very fun, safe, & enjoyable, and I had a great time flying in the front. The doors were securely closed and the view was excellent. I highly recommend trying this out!

We were delayed in getting to HeliNY so we were in a real rush when we turned up at our scheduled flight time (30 mins after we should have arrived). No issue though, we were checked in an on the next flight.Yes it was a little cramped, but what do you expect, it’s a helicopter. My wife and I were not seated together but this is to be expected and is clearly advertised that seating is according to weight.The pilot was friendly and pointed out sights, whilst also communicating with air traffic control.We flew from Manhattan heliport which was very easy to get to - forget spending half a day to get to NJ.Overall, this was a really great experience - I’m sure it would be improved by hiring the whole helicopter yourself but I’m not made of money!

Breathtaking. An absolute must for anyone visiting NYC if you can stretch to it. Views are genuinely outstanding and there's no way you'll get anything close to them elsewhere. Helicopters look brand new, are incredibly comfortable and the pilots give great information. Couldn't recommend more.
