This is certainly without a doubt the highlight of my trip to New York.....the best way to see New York is definitely by a helicopter...u can literally see almost everything it's like Birdseye view of New York.....worth every penny....good pilot very informative...I Cudnt be happier I choose the heli tour over IPhone5S....experience is priceless

This is awesome: we chose the 15 mins trip which is breath taking......taking you over downtown Manhattan, the towers, the world trade centre, the memorial, all the way to Times Square.....you have to film this all the way.....amazing experience. The staff is incredibly efficient and all prep is organised with military precision for your safety.....you might even be the lucky one to sit next to the pilot.....we will do this trip again next time we visit NYC, but we'll choose the longer trip, worth ever penny!!!!

We opted for the Central Park tour, lasting 19 minutes. There were only 3 of us on the flight, so good access to the windows to take photos. We also had a guide point out all of the local sights, which was really good. The weather wasn't the best for us, with the mast on the top of the Freedom Tower being in clouds, However we still managed to get different perspectives of the city, and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. The views are amazing.
The only downside is the booking in process is very impersonal, and the half an hour wait beforehand was a long wait with nothing to do. Other companies in the terminal seemed to have more to do.
