This was an amazing and unforgettable experience from start to finish. The guys working there couldn’t be more awesome, kind and nice. The pilot was super great too, informative and very nice to hear and talk to. If you are thinking about this, don’t think it to much and do it! Special thanks to the guy (I’m sorry, I forgot your name) :(, who waited for us at night and helped us tremendously, we will never forget you, thank you so much! 10000/10 and even more :)

Once in a life time experience

We were running over half an hour late for our night time helicopter ride, however the team were incredibly accommodating and got us through the safety checks in a flash. Once we were up in the air the pilot was great at giving small amounts of info on New York and some of the sights and made everyone feel at ease! All in all the night time veiws were amazing and it was a magical part of our time in NYC, highly recommend!!

My daughter and I absolutely loved this. It was a birthday present and they put her up front in the cockpit with the pilot. Ten out of ten for that because it made the experience one of her best memories ever. The pilot was full of information and really humorous. This is a must do trip. It was amazing to see New York from the air.

Looking down on the city all lit up was amazing! Watching flights take off and land from Newark Airport was interesting to see!! We were two and flew with a family of 4, I wish there was a way for the two parties to be on separate channels when speaking to each other.

The staff were excellent, the helicopter was new and clean and the pilot was very informative. Great views of NYC. The airport is in NJ so its a bit of a trek via train and taxi to the airport, it then takes time to fly to NYC... However, the trip itself was great.
