$310 to book for two people. The ride was fun and lasted 15 minutes. My boyfriend got to sit up front with the pilot! 6:13-6:28pm flight, however 5pm was the time I booked for. We were supposed to arrive by 4:15 and due to traffic arrived 4:54pm and charged late fee for two people $270. The ride was so fun and the money is nothing and the experience is everything!! 5 stars!! You wont be disappointed!!

My partner and I were SO looking forward to the experience set with Taste of NYC. Looking at the reviews I chose this over other tours after reading the wonderful reviews and was willing to pay a bit more for the experience. It had been a dream of his for years. Unfortunately, we had a hiccup with our train being delayed to the city and we weren’t going to make it in time. We never wanted a refund as I was familiar with the policy - But, we requested to have the dates modified as we were in NYC for two more days. That request was painfully rejected. Great customer service would have been able to at least meet us halfway in trying to find another date. It felt as though the company was more pleased with absorbing our $310 for holding a reservation that wasn’t executed. Complete bummer

It is customer responsibility to also call when they are going to be late. You never called, and your flight was forfeited.

the website is professional but the reality was different... we were 10 minutes late due to the busy traffic in the hollandtunnel. (2h before departure from manhattan). Immediately we were fined $50 per person. the helicopter flight was short and not the route described on the website. not recommended!

You were more than 10 minutes late and the office had called you to find out where you were. It is customer responsibility to be on time , it is not fair for the other passengers who are on time to wait either. You took the tour that you booked.

The company is very much money driven. They are not respectful at all. The team does not care about safety nor ensuring the overall experience of the tour. There are other companies out there which are much more professional and legit. The van which picked us up did not even have a door handle on it. At that moment, we knew we had gone with the wrong company.

You were called from our office to find out where you were because you had missed your check in time. The van had made 2 drops off before you came toward the van which was almost your flight time. You were charged a late fee which states on your booking because you were late, as far as the handle being broken a customer had broken it the same day. You base a broken van door handle with your tour which makes no sense. All companies have a Late fees policy including Airlines.

Rang to book tour today told me had spaces but was rude . Really bad customer service . My partner rang to book after and was told all spaces had gone. Jessica then proceeded to shout at my partner as I had left a bad review after a previous engagement !!! Having businesses of my own I find it really hard to see how they get away with treating people like this ! Would not contact or book with this firm again . Shocking !!!!

Jessica tried to accommodate you she told you that the time you wanted was full. People book on line and the time slots get filled up quickly.

The helicopter ride was fun I guess but they literally left us sitting outside the fence in the parking lot for an hour. They drove us to the take off spot but our names weren’t called so we sat outside the fence waiting for our pilot to come get us. Every time I called they kept saying “we’re coming to get you don’t worry”. It was the most insane thing ever, we had no clue what was going on.

The day we wanted to fly was uncertain, because of the weather, so we decided to flight another day.

We thought our flight would be on Sunday and it was on Saturday. When we called to check the information, we figured we missed the flight. So we tried to reschedule for another day.

we knew it would cost us money, because of our mistake, but their fee to reschedule was MORE EXPENSIVE THAN THE FLIGHT WE BOUGHT.

In other words, it’s just a fake fee as nobody would pay more to a fee than to the service itself. So they kept our money without provide us a service and give us a real chance of rescheduling.

We all know things can happen when you are traveling, so if you are planning to have fun instead of having headaches, lose money, you should try a company that is looking for provide you a great time instead just take your money.

We were not against pau a fee for the no show, that was a misunderstanding, but charge us a fee more expensive than the service we bought was outrageous.

You were sent numerous Emails including phone calls to confirm your flight and no answer on either part. You called at 5pm the day that you were supposed to fly with check in time that was for 2pm, Jessica was more than happy to reschedule you but you DID NOT want to pay the any fees. All companies charge late/rescheduling fees.
