On the day of the experience we arrived early and were able to fly early with another group. The staff and service overall were faultless. All staff were polite, made everyone feel welcome and safe. The helicopter ride itself was a superb experience and we are so glad we done it! Yes it’s pricey but you get to fly over Manhattan, which for us was a once in a lifetime experience.
