"Above the skyline"
July, 2016
We booked this trip well in advance of visiting NYC. Having booked our trip for 9.45, we were early and no waiting around. The pilot that we had was very good, pointing out the points of interest as we flew over. The time went really quick. But this is highly recommended, an amazing experience and a memory to be made. Thank you, Reserve, and thank you Liberty Helicopters. We hope to see you again. Andrea
Tip: Don't forget your camera.. this is a must. Be prepared for making an amazing memory.

A wonderful experience with a knowledgable pilot. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this. We flew up and down Hudson River and could see all the major sights which were pointed out by the pilot along with interesting historical facts.

Booked this for our sons 21st Birthday as a surprise, when we got there. We emailed the company first to see if the date was available and checked the weather in advance. As once you book there are no refunds (read the small print). The company were really good at letting us know about availability and times. Although not a long flight we all really enjoyed this. Clear skies all over New York bonus. Pilot very good, pointing out various buildings from above. Although not the easiest place to get some photos if you want, it was great just to see the city from above. Great experience and son enjoyed this very much

I do have a height phobia but when my mom ask me to try this attraction i'm agree at the same time. Its very professional, the staff are really helpful and the pilot is nice too. It was an epic 15 minute in my life because i felt amazed and scared at the same time. If you want to try to do something different when you go to NYC then you should try this attraction.

Booked via our hotel the "big apple flight" for a total of $470 (approx, including the $35 heliport fees, for two people) it was easy to get to and well organised. The staff were friendly and the pilot was a character. We were in the sky fifteen minutes and the views were epic! I would recommend this company and this tour, really very good 👍
