"We came to New York for our honeymoon and were given the helicopter flight over Manhattan as a wedding present. My wife and I loved the experience. It was the first helicopter flight either of us had experienced and the views were dramatic. We loved it. The only criticism I can give is that we were made to feel a little like cattle being herded around. I understand the need for that flight-wise, but don't think it's that necessary on land. Maybe a boarding pass system and some seating could be introduced. Anyway, we loved it and would recommend it to anyone."
