"We had a 20-minute tour, and it was awesome. Our pilot was Aaron, and he was really good with my 10-year-old son. I have taken about two dozen different heli tours in the U.S., and this one was the most fun. I would absolutely recommend calling ahead. They also have lockers available."

-Shaun P.

"The BEST time I can remember in the past couple of years. The pilot was a pro and very helpful. I LOVED this tour. I got to see everything I could have wanted. I felt comfy, safe, and well informed. I am so glad I spent the money - I could have played it safe and saved money but that would have been a mistake. It's a very good way to enjoy New York!"
