It’s a nice experience to do it once. Organization was a bit messy but straight to the point. I would highly recommend it as an adventure. Not really the romantic feel.

The wait was long but totally worth it. The view was spectacular and staff was nice. Extra points for the story telling !

long wait time for a short ride, maybe 15 minutes for about an hour or two wait. but once you're in the air it is great.

Ein einmaliges Erlebnis. Aufmerksam, einfühlsam, informativ und nett. Durchdacht. Kurz, weil so Besonders und schmerzlos, weil man im Kopf behalten sollte, das wir dies nicht erleben könnten, wenn diese Menschen dort ihr Geschäft mit all den Kosten und Drumherum nicht erhalten könnten, wenn es nicht zügig gehen würde. Jederzeit wieder. Dankeschön!

I had booked this experience as the final touch on a first-time visit to NY. I was a bit worried because the weather seemed to be gray and rainy but we managed to get into the air safely. Because of the weather though, we were not able to go up as high as the helicopters usually fly but it was still a really cool experience seeing NY from the skies. You really get a sense of how big and bustling the city is. Another note was that the tours usually only fly if there are 5 people booked and being a party of two we assumed there would be 3 other guests which was not the case. Because no one else had booked our flight time and that was the only day that we could have flown, we got a private tour! The flight lasted around 15 min and I don't believe my headset worked well enough for me to communicate to the pilot but that was fine with me because I was just taking in the scenery. The process of boarding and such was very hassle-free and simple. There is a big waiting area stocked with vending machines, nice couches and a foosball which were nice accommodations. The only thing that made it not as amazing as imagine was the weather which was uncontrollable. The company did call me earlier inquiring if I would be able to fly the day before due to the weather and the amount of people but we weren't able to.
