Great experience, the flight was 15 minutes as expected, we hovered over Statue of Liberty, flew next to Manhattan to Central Park and back. There were 4 passengers in the helicopter. Pilot was commenting the surrounding area.
Amazing! Highly recommended.
Brilliant morning. Very professional and we ended up with longer as weight distribution amongst other flyers meant changes had to be made. The views were outstanding and the pilot very knowledgeable. The boat tour was great too and we got some stunning pictures from both experiences. Highly recommended.
I cried on this flight, it was completely overwhelming, it was the most magical dream come true moment. Fantastic staff :-
Fantastic tour would highly recommend
What an experience! I have visited New York a few times now and the one thing I had not done was view New York by air. This was a gift for my Mother's 60th birthday and the memories will last a lifetime. The staff on the ground were fantastic and welcoming, the pilot informative and the flight itself was out of this world. I would strongly recommend this trip to anyone looking and would suggest that if you feel you want to do it then just go ahead. You will not regret the decision. The cruise was packed full of information and a nice end to the trip.
Great! However the booking reservation gave the time of closing not when we should be at the heli pad. Loved the experience but would not recommend using Viator for any future travels. They messed up on timing on other parts of our travel also. In fact a lady who couldn't speak English booked through Viator at the heli port and it told her to be there by 5pm and the helicopter company she was booked for closed at 3pm.
The helicopter part is awesome, and the water taxi ride afterwards is fun too. I'm taking one star off because of the almost hour wait between the helicopter and the water taxi it was freezing outside, and the fact that's it is a water taxi, not a cruise ship/boat that the title implies. Still highly recommended.
Helicopter for a 15-minute flight 12mins at most.
Champagne toast on boat cruise Not supplied.
Der Helikopterflug dauerte keine 12 Minuten, wie angegeben. Im Helikopter waren insgesamt 12 Personen. Wir 4 Personen hatten die hintersten Plätze und die Aussicht war dementsprechend schlecht, vor allem für die beiden, die in der Mitte sassen. Meine Kopfhörer funktionierten nicht, aber während des Fluges konnte ich niemanden darauf aufmerksam machen. Als ich es nach dem Flug sagte, gab es keine Entschuldigung, nichts, nur ein Kopfnicken. Nach dem Flug wollten wir wissen, wo unser Boot startet. Sehr unmotiviert wurde uns mitgeteilt, dass es weiter vorne sei.
Am Boot wurden wir vorgerufen, da wir VIP Tickets hatten, jedoch stiegen alle Gäste gleichzeitig ein. Das Getränk musste man sich selbst holen und die Mitarbeiterin musste telefonisch nachfragen, was es für den Gutschein für ein Getränk gibt.
Alles in allem ein enttäuschendes Erlebnis, vor allem für diesen Preis.
