Everything! Just everything! I was made to feel welcome from the moment I walked through the door until the moment I left. The whole experience was safety conscious and so very well organised. The helicopter was comfortable and the pilot was friendly and informative. I would definitely recommend this company and the flight to all my friends who are visiting New York!

The ticket said 4 pm but when we arrived we were told we were on the 4:30 which was kinda annoying. The actual experience was quite good but I'm a bit of a stickler for time keeping so next time would probably go with a different operator.

The best of NYC without the crowds

Immerse yourself in the magnificence of NYC and its attractions without dealing with the crowds or traffic. Sit comfortably in a luxury helicopter as you go on a 30-min aerial ride 1500-2000 ft above the ground. If you're short on time and want to visit multiple spots in the city, this tour, covering 15+ attractions, is the perfect option for you! Experience the most spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, along with icons like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building.

Exclusive attractions in just 30 minutes

Gaze in awe at the suspended bridge that is the gateway between Staten Island and New York, the Verazzano Narrows Bridge, which at one time was the longest suspension bridge in the world. Look out upon the bays that make up Staten Island before heading to a very different island indeed. Every summer, Coney Island turns into an amusement park, a dream of every kid in New York and there's no better way to admire its intricacies than from the air!
