From the moment we arrived everyone was so friendly, informative, and terrific! They really take care of their customers. Our pilot, Lucas, was an outstanding from take off to landing. He was also a great guide in explaining and pointing out all the landmarks as we flew over!

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!

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.
