Viator has several helicopter tours in New York. I chose this one instead of the cheaper ones because it spends more time over Manhattan. The price includes a required heliport fee, which the cheaper tours don't include in their prices and you still have to pay it. That means the amount you pay in the end isn't as different as it seems it's not a 100 difference, it's more like 40-60. Most of the tours around this price also fly over Brooklyn, Bronx, and/or Queens. If you're willing to pay that amount but you want to focus on Manhattan, I recommend this one.
Fabulous helicopter tour. Very well organised, was very impressed with staff and pilot. Views were fantastic and commentary from pilot was great. Would definitely recommend this tour to see the fantastic New York sky line. Fantastic.
sensational, organized, on time. delivered what was promised!
Absolutely amazing experience. It was my wife and I's first time in a helicopter and my wife was a little scared before we went up and requested that she sit in the middle at the back. By the time we touched down she was kicking herself that she did not sit in the front which is where they wanted to have her sit as the view is better from the front. They take you to look at all the major attractions and a flight up the Hudson as well. Just book and do it as it is a bucket list item.
Wow! If there is one experience that you must do, then its the helicopter tour! There is so much to do and see in New York, but if your only there for a few days, then this is a 'must do' on your list of activities to see all of the key sites..The scenes are breathtaking and the pilot is really friendly and knowledgeable to help make to most of your time in the air.. Safety is paramount importance to the tour and the team take every moment to ensure you fully understand the safety precautions.. Would I do this again? Absolutely!
A must when in New York. The weather wasn't great but seeing New York from this angle was amazing. Everyone was very friendly and the helicopter itself was a lot posher than I was expecting - really enjoyed it.
Great service from a professional crew. The weather was good and the pilot pointed out landmarks which come thick and fast. We took lots of photos and enjoyed our 30 minute flight. Great to see NY from the air, throughly enjoyed by both me and the good lady.
Truly great experience, well worth the . Patrick our pilot was amusing to say the least, and very informative. Take the longer trip of 18-20 minutes, we actually had 22, who cares! All the sights were covered on the trip and there's plenty of opportunities for photos all the way through the trip and after you've landed. Many thanks!
Excellent experience! The ride provided an excellent opportunity to see the city from a birds perspective. The check in, safety information provided and the flight were great. The sites were explained in detail and plenty of clearance for window photo's. This was my first helicopter ride and well worth it. This operation is first class. Every step of the process was well rehearsed and easy to follow directions. This is a memory for a lifetime!
Arrived as requested 30 minutes before flight. Taken through security and safety demonstrations and led to the helicopter. Pilot polite and knowledgeable. Scenery was amazing as it was a clear day. Having done the basic tour before, the ultimate tour offered better value for money. Excellent.
AWESOME!!!!! Great overview of sights of the city!
The pilot and other personnel were so helpful and pleasant...
This was a wonderful experience - stunning views. Really enjoyable will do again.
Best money I've ever spent guys where brilliant. From start to finish
This is such a fun way to see Manhattan! I surprised my husband who lived in NYC previously with the helicopter tour and he absolutely loved it! The ride in the helicopter itself was really cool and the views of the city were just breathtaking! I was 24 weeks pregnant at the time and was worried the ride would be rough or that I would get sick but the entire flight was so smooth! Honestly, it was better than our landing into LGA! If you're on the fence about taking the tour, go for it! You wont regret it!!
Exciting, dramatic, unforgettable. Courteous staff. We are all still raving about New York basking in the sunshine experienced from the air.
Amazing tour, excellent organization, very professional staff, helicopter in excellent condition, and the pilot was very kind and explained the highlights and had a sense of humour, too.
I will do it again.
Although this trip was expensive we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was well organised, safe and exciting. The staff were friendly and the pilot gave us a running commentary of what could be seen below. It was quite a windy day and the feeling inside the helicopter was thrilling. The views across Manhattan are breath-taking and we would recommend this way to see the city to anyone. We opted for the 20 minute flight and this seemed like plenty of time to get good photos and enjoy the ride too.
