"Above the skyline"
July, 2016
We booked this trip well in advance of visiting NYC. Having booked our trip for 9.45, we were early and no waiting around. The pilot that we had was very good, pointing out the points of interest as we flew over. The time went really quick. But this is highly recommended, an amazing experience and a memory to be made. Thank you, Reserve, and thank you Liberty Helicopters. We hope to see you again. Andrea

A wonderful experience with a knowledgable pilot. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this. We flew up and down Hudson River and could see all the major sights which were pointed out by the pilot along with interesting historical facts.

"So worth the money!!"

This was the highlight of our trip to New York. And we did everything: game of the Knicks, Broadway and the Apollo. This flight topped everything. To be fair: the 15 minute trip is perfect to see everything. The longer trips, just nicer to let it last longer if you can afford it, but not necessary. And if you have the luxury to be there off season and not everything is booked: wait for the weather forecast, so you can do this on a sunny day. People working there are super nice. They Made it even more special and they understood that this was a special moment for us... very very nice and a big thank you!!!!

This was an amazing experience and a must do for life if you go to NYC. We went there for NYE it was dark about 5 pm and we were able to see the Manhattan at night and take some great pictures. The crew and everyone at the office were very kind to us. There's only one detail, if you go on weekend by Uber you need to enter not by front gate because it's closed on weekends, which may confuse and frustrate your uber driver at the arrival and when leaving the place. Except from that everything was great, one of the coolest things I've done. Thanks!

Really great experience - friendly and efficient staff. The only criticism would be the additional charges that when booking on the internet didn’t mention! 40 dollars per person tax on top of the price! This needs to be made clear at the time of booking. Other than that - well worth it.

Reviewed January 04, 2019
I’m a bit torn between giving this three or four stars. The experience itself was great as it’s a fantastic way to see the New York skyline, the biggest problem was it just felt a bit to fast and rushed. Had I had not recently done the Grand Canyon helicopter tour a couple of months before I think I’d have been more impressed but the Grand Canyon helicopter was a much much longer trip for not a great deal more money so I didn’t feel it was all that good value for money, maybe the location dictates this
