"Excellent service from the day that I inquired about booking. The staff who handled my booking were very quick at replying and great at answering any further questions. The day was great, it felt very professional and the ride was both safe and enjoyable. I would just recommend that you sell photographs or apparel etc as an extra on the package, as most tourists would definitely buy at least the photograph that they provide, but it is also nice to include this already in the gift you give someone!"

"Was incredible to see the Big Apple from above! Gave a totally different perspective from what the city looks like and gave me insight into areas I still had to learn about! The helicopter ride overall was a massive thrill! Definitely on the "to do list" for newcomers to this magical place! -Anna Williamson"

"This was one of the best experiences of my life!! It was also a huge accomplishment for my husband who has not been in the air in 15 years before Tuesday. Our pilot was excellent and really made everyone feel secure! I can not thank you enough for this incredible adventure. It was so delightful to see the city from that view on such a beautiful clear day!"
