We boarded the Helicopter as the assistant took some pictures of us by the Copter. We flew over the Statue of Liberty, Manhattan and along the Hudson River for about 20 minutes. The seats were comfortable, the narrative was informative and the view was spectacular. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Safe, organized and fun!
