I arrived an hour early for my 11am flight, but was welcomed in and allowed on the 10am flight which was great! The staff there are very welcoming. The place is super clean. I was a solo customer so I got to sit right next to the pilot in the front which as SUPER COOL!! Pilot was super friendly! The flight itself was awesome! Saw and took great pictures and videos! Best experience Ever!!!

Great views, memorable experience! Photo frame was blurred and not worth spending $30 on

Great experience! The only one disappointment was the picture we got printed after. The person who was taking the pictures was using a professional camera but our picture was blurred and definitely not good enough for a camera like this. Looks like an old Polaroid photo. For $30 you better make sure you take good pictures of the visitors, it's a memory for life!

Thank you for sharing that you had a great experience! We’re sorry to hear your picture is blurry. We recently upgraded all our cameras so that everyone can get better pictures and this should have been caught when the picture was printed. Please contact us at info@heliny.com so we can look into this issue further.

I had a good time watching and enjoying the Helicopter, but unfortunately I was booked at 12:00 pm. And I have a connected flight at 3:00 pm. unfortunately they are not on time we had a delay to make it till 1:15 pm which cost me a lot to get the next flight. HOWEVER I asked them to cancel my trip at that time and they rejected. And they said we can cancel it but it won’t be refundable. I had such a good time but they are not helpful at all! Also I called the help desk they aren’t assist me as I wish. I will not recommend to my friends or family at all.

We always do our best to run on schedule. As you missed the check-in time for your flight, there was not enough time to prepare you to fly as scheduled and not delay the other passengers. We offered to fly you on the next available space, which is why the tour departed at a later time. Viator reservations are non-refundable within 24 hours, and as you missed the original flight, we were doing the best we could so you wouldn't lose your money. We apologize that you didn't find us helpful, but we always try to be accommodating whenever we can.

Nothing awesome and not value for money
Patram_B
, Aug 2021
It was last trip of the day. Official photographer left early so we had to take photo with our phone. The journey time was around 10 minutes only. Helicop flew over low and at very slow speed. Definitely not worth the money they charged.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
The flight time includes the moment you take-off until you land, and our flights are never shorter than 12 minutes. Our staff are always available to take pictures of passengers. Due to safety, passengers are not allowed to take their own pictures while walking to and from the helicopter. We apologize if there was any confusion regarding having your picture taken.

Helicopter ride

advertised as a 15 to 20 minute flight, which was an actual 13 minute flight, 3 persons, over $700.00 and these guys have to cheat me out of 2 to 7 minutes. They are the only show in town and can charge double the going rate, Then they get you for $40.00 for a picture. RIP OFF...............
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
I apologize if there was any confusion regarding the duration of the flight, but as listed on the Viator website the Manhattan Highlights is advertised as 12-15 minutes. The rate that you paid has been the same price since 2018 when we lowered our rates. I'm sorry you found our picture sales were expensive, but our rates are in line with standard attraction pricing.
