A great NYC experience! - The staff was hospitable and the pilot was very inviting, friendly and safe. Safety was a priority for everyone. Each person welcomed us with a smile and comfort. We felt secure with our pilot at the controls and he was very knowledgeable about the various landmarks. A great NYC experience!

Once in a lifetime, must do. - What an amazing experience. From the staff inside the terminal to the pilot and then the experience itself. WOW. To see the city from that vantage point, on what was the most clear day of weather all week was absolutely something the four of us will never forget. Can’t recommend this highly enough.

Need to read this part - The experience was great. However, my eldest daughter was sitting opposite an unknown older man. Later it turned out that he paid more attention to my daughter than to the flight. (My daughter had a bad experience with it, felt very uncomfortable) Unfortunately I didn't notice... Yes, there isn't much I can do. So pay attention to which strange people you go with... Can have a major influence on the experience. The company was great, lovely people, happy to help you and very clear...Safety first

Very poor customer service - The customer service was appalling and the receptionist was very rude. The address given on the confirmation email took us to the Hudson River side of Manhattan- I rang the company to explain what had happened and we would be with them asap - we were 5 mins late (we were required to be there 45 mins before our flight time of 2 pm, so arrived at 1.20 pm) we were charged $200 penalty!! Whilst I appreciate the policy is clear, when we tried to explain that the address given took us to the wrong location, she said that wasn’t her fault and that the pilot had been waiting for us, which was clearly a lie as the helicopter was in the air - our flight time was 2 pm and we actually took off at 1.45 pm - I would NOT recommend this company. There are other companies offering flights with our friends booking with another operator and was only required to be there 15 mins beforehand. So whilst I would recommend the flight - do NOT use this company!

Be prepared for below par service - The ride itself was amazing, the views on a clear sunny day were just perfect. However, the gentleman on the ‘door’ to gain access to the heliport was rude, unwelcoming and totally unprofessional. The service was annoyingly running 2hrs behind schedule but instead of him just being honest all he said was “wait here and the manager will come out”, bearing in mind in was very cold out etc. I simply asked for an update and he was very unhelpful and accused myself and others waiting in the queue of being ‘aggressive’ to him simply by asking for an update. He should not be the face of this NY Helicopters. The staff once inside were the opposite but the occasion had already been tarnished by the front of house meet and greet and the 2 hour delay.
