Great ride, but not enough time!
Brad_R
, Jul. 2022
Overall was an amazing ride! The pilot was knowledgeable and friendly. My daughter got to sit as copilot that was awesome! My only complaint was it states 30-35 mins and we were up for 20-25 mins. I know it sounds like a short amount of time but there were different time option. We chose the max and spent over $700 so every minute counts.
icon Response from Host , Jul. 2022
We're so glad you enjoyed the ride and your daughter was able to have arguably the best seat on the flight. We advertise our Deluxe tour at 25-30 minutes with duration that varies due to air traffic. Unfortunately, we're unable to offer any longer flights.

I spent almost $700 for 2ppl and we were uncomfortable, the helicopter picture I saw wasn’t the same ! Very bad experience never with this company
icon Response from Host , Dec. 2021
We are sorry to hear you were uncomfortable. We did confirm with Operations that you had several heavyset customers on your flight. We fly the largest helicopters in the northeast. We have a fleet of EC130s and Bell407s. but currently only operate our Bell 407s so we apologize for any confusion regarding which aircraft you were flying in. Private tours are available for those who are concerned about comfort and space.

Awful
Gustavo_H
, Dec. 2021
There was no 21 fly by . Took off when out 4 miles and turned back .Not worth the money. It’s literally just taking a helicopter ride on the Hudson River. It should be called Hudson River ride.
icon Response from Host , Dec. 2021
The city heavily restricts the tour routes and flying over the city or near the buildings is not permitted. As we advertise, the tour routes are over the Hudson River flying past the skyline at about 1500 ft. We think a helicopter tour of New York City provides a unique experience that is incomparable.

We arrived 30 minutes early before our reservation time which is a must for check in, waiver forms and safety protocols. The staff was friendly and professional. The ride was very smooth and great pilot as he gave us history about the boroughs.

It was an amazing experience especially if you've never been in a helicopter before! I was lucky enough to get the front seat next to the pilot but my husband felt a bit squashed in the back as we didn't realize we booked an experience with other people. It's still a worthwhile experience!

Hi Helen, Thank you for sharing your experience flying with us! Thank you for being our co-pilot on your trip and for noting this is a shared flight. We're happy to hear that you had an amazing experience on your first helicopter flight!

VIP treatment!!

Have your camera ready after they briefly go over safety protocols you get a snapshot with the sanitized helo behind. You start off with a birds eye view of lower Manhattan, Brooklyn, Statue of Liberty, Staten Island and circle back up north along the Hudson River to see the rest of the NYC. No seat is a bad seat with floor to ceiling windows which is a plus the pilot guides through famous landmarks and local points of interest.

This company was first rate , from the security to the Manager at the Desk , to the Photographer they stressed safety but were friendly and kind about it . I had my teenagers with me and we all enjoyed the experience so much we will go again even though I am from Brooklyn I really enjoyed the view and sights , tourists especially should use this company Viator only ! The pilot Jeff was great and his landing was smoother than u get when on a train or bus . Highly recommend !!!!

Am still in awe of my flight, 4 days after I did it and arrived back home. I got to sit next to the pilot, which was phenomenal, especially as I'd celebrated my 50th birthday 2 days previously! Absolutely out of this world and thoroughly recommended.
