Great customer service, accommodating and friendly. The helicopter was clean and safe. The views were absolutely a life memory and worth the investment

The staff was friendly, funny and eased any anxiety immediately. From the second we were picked up to dropped back off. The pilot was hilarious with his commentary while noting facts while navigating the breathtaking views. Would recommend 100%

We did our Tour, one day after the big snowstorm in NYC. It was really tricky to come to the Linden Airport where the night tours starts. Every other train was cancelled and we arrive 1,5h later at Linden than we should have been there. We always stayed in contact with the operator and the were so nice and helpful and they always make sure that they will wait for us. So finally we came to Linden trainstation, our driver Steven picked us up there and brought us to the airport. We wait for 5 minutes and our flight started and it was awesome! If you never did a helicopter-tour, do the night tour that's amazing.
After landing Steven brought us back to the train station it had -15C - 5F but the first train was cancelled and then the second...
Steven was the nicest person ever, he offered us to wait in the heated car while waiting for a train. He already finished his work and could get home but he waited with us until finally a train came.
Thank you so much Steven!

This was an AMAZING, very very well arranged trip. If you're thinking about a helicopter tour over NYC I highly recommend this one.
One day before your flight there is someone via email or phone helping you with the train to Linden New Jersey and if you're interested in a limousine service from Linden to the airport. You will get a recommendation for the train you need to take to be in time. Once you've arrived at Linden a limousine service will take care of you. They even called me to make sure you are on time and found your driver.
The flight took 28 minutes and was underlined by lounge music which I totally loved. You're able to see every sight of the big apple. Totally amazing! I've done other helicopter flights over NY and this was definitely the best!

We had to wait an hour after our allotted time. Pilot was super skilled! We got to see all the sites we wanted to see. The location is way out of the way though and trains aren't that often.

We had to go out of Manhattan in the New Jersey which is about 1hour trip, when we arrived we had a short breifing but we waited almost 1h before having the tour, no water offered and in the middle of nowhere the wait was were long. We were 12 person meaning 6 are in the border and have window and 6 are in the middle of the helicopter means you see Nothing and can't take pictures. My husband was ok because at the window but me and the other 6 in the middle paid for nothing....
