Absolutely the best experience ever! It's the only way we were able to see all the landmarks during our weekend trip. The tour guide was awesome and knew so much information! The pilot ensured everyone on board were able to view all the landmarks. Our 7:30 pm time slot was perfect to see the city's sunset and the night life start to come alive!

Not what I expected
Obdulio_T

The view was awesome BUTTTTTT you would think that your paying so much money to have a private ride with your partner. To our surprise we were stuffed into the helicopter with 6 other paying customers who I belive also thought they were going to have a private ride. Not only is it not private or comfortable but we were also rushed when we wanted to take a picture. I wanted pictures to have as memories and we were rushed by an employee. The whole experience was rushed. It was also very hot in the helicopter and it made for an uncomfortable experience NOT TO MENTION we had no foot space what so ever. Literally had a strangers foot and arm against me the whole time since we were all stuffed in a helicopter. Definitely not what I was expecting. Just want to give a heads up if your thinking of doing this with your partner you will be stuffed with many people!!! But the view was awesome.

We’re glad to hear you thought the views were awesome! We’re sorry the whole experience was not what you expected. Our tours are sold per seat on shared flights, and we contact passengers the day before to reconfirm this. Private tours are available for those passengers looking for this option. We fly the largest aircraft in the industry equipped with heating and cooling. We will pass along your feedback about the heat on your flight to our Operations Manager. We do allow passengers to take their own pictures from our Linden, NJ location, but we do run on a schedule so we can only allow a few moments before the flight.

The helicopter experience was a complete surprise for my girlfriend. Suffice it to say, knocked it out of the park. The city lights at night from a helicopter! How cool is that? As a retired military helicopter pilot I was completely impressed with the company. Real professionals and part of the great experience. The aircraft itself was totally plush, a very comfortable, smooth and quiet ride! Well, compared to Army helicopters. Seriously would do this again. Highly recommend.

Hi Adam! We're so happy we were able to help you surprise your girlfriend! We appreciate you sharing that we were able to impress you as a helicopter pilot yourself! Our helicopters are definitely set up for luxury not the military! We hope to see you again soon thank you for recommending us!
