The whole experience was amazing. Great guest service, amazing pilot Andrew, worth the miney. We flew quite close to Statue of Liberty and the experience was even more fun due to the great pilot and his piloting skills. Got also great pictures 6 pictures from a really quick and skilled photographer. Would recommend and would love to do it again when I return to NY!

Classic Tour for 2 with pics - This was our favorite activity in NYC! Absolutely recommend! Very efficiently run operation. Their customer service rep, Yolanda, provided the best customer service I’ve EVER experienced, and I’m super picky. There’s an option to purchase a video - I wouldn’t do that again, turned out pretty awkward. No reminder for pics and we forgot ours so, be sure to ask!

Five star. Scheduling the tour was easy once the payment from Groupon was processed (took about 5hrs before I received the code, then we could book). Out of the 5 tour companies that operate on Pier 6, Manhattan Helicopters was the best. The crew was kind, flight was on time, pilot was informative, and the helicopter we rode in was a full top to bottom window with plush leather seating. My sister and I agreed it was the most luxurious option from the other helicopters. The photos turned out great, and we'll always have a great memory of our experience with Manhattan Helicopters.

About Manhattan Helicopters

Manhattan Helicopters' flight crew zips passengers past the Big Apple's most iconic attractions while narrating trips in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese, or Chinese. Each one of their pilots must log thousands of training hours before steering whirlybirds past landmarks such as the 9/11 Memorial, Times Square, and Madison Square Garden. Voice-activated Bose headsets provide crystal-clear communications between pilots and riders, and large windows deliver unobstructed views of Governors Island and the distant Palisades. Plush leather seats equipped with cup holders equally absorb chair-gripping excitement and reveries more peaceful than a nap in a stork's bindle.
