Horrible price, bad service, but great views!
Aug 2021
Great views but not great enough to pay $800 for under 15 minutes of time in flight. Pilot was nice and very knowledgeable. Rushed you through everything and audio wasn’t on for safety presentation so you could only watch and not hear what you were supposed to do. Great views are the only good thing I can say.

We’re happy you found the views great and our pilot knowledgeable, but we’re sorry you felt everything was rushed. We always play our safety presentation with the sound on, and we apologize if it was too loud preventing you for hearing it. We will forward your feedback to our Operations team to ensure that everyone is able to hear the safety video. We believe that our tours are priced fairly in order to show passengers unique views of New York City in a state-of-the-art helicopter. We understand that private tours can seem costly, but we do have shared options for those looking for a lower price.

Spectacular helicopter experience
Cannot thank enough the team of HeliNY for the unforgettable experience I had. Everything was handled with care and courtesy , from the security agent at the entrance, the front desk staff , and the skilled and attentive pilot, I was luck enough to sit by his side. The trip to NYC become even more spectacular seeing the city from above. Don’t hesitate to book HeliNY services if a helicopter tour is in your holiday plans.

Best tour I’ve been on in the city
Aug 2021 • Family
The best tour of NYC we could have done! Unique, lovely staff with smiles and safety being the focus! We got amazing pictures and video. What we didn’t know at the beginning was that BOTH sides of the helicopter get to see the views! Don’t bother your neighbor by trying to take photos through them, you will get the same views on the way back! Thank you to the staff and pilot from our trip!
