Absolutely a wonderful experience, great people and awesome service, do remember that you will have a difficult time finding a ride back to Manhattan from South Kearny where they fly out from. The staff is really going the extra mile and even helped out trying to get a ride for us. The tour is a full 30 and you get an amazing view of Lady Liberty, Manhattan and Jersey. I am over the magic 250 pounds, but this was no problem, we ended up getting a nice discount and enjoyed our trip alone just the two of us (plus the pilot of course). So save a little, great a lot extra and go with New York Helicopter Tours. If there was a way to give an extra (6th) star they should have it for sure.

Our pilot was great! The waiting time, lack of Covid signs or protocol were a turn off. Unorganized.

You went up on your flight which was the Ultimate tour and were told that the shorter flight would be before yours at 5pm. We give a verbal regarding the virus, everyone wears a mask.
Natural beauty, sensual spirit, perfect harmony.

Our Experience
, Oct 2020
This was an awesome experience. The staff is so friendly and courteous. They called us the day before to confirm the reservation. We were running late due to construction and they were very patient and accommodating in waiting for us at the pick up location and ensured we were able to make our trip. The pilot was awesome. He made sure both sides were able to see the views and made the trip very enjoyable. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a special way to see NY
