"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

"Great Flight"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We flew the Big Apple Tour offered by Liberty Helicopters. We booked online while at home in the UK. Check was easy. We showed our printed ticket at the entrance and were shown to the desk where we provided a few details, proved our ID by passport. We then paid our $40 per person security check fee. After the safety video and some instructions we boarded our helicopter having our picture taken outside it prior to take off. This cost $25 to have at the end. The flight was amazing taking in most of the major sites around Manhattan. The pilot gave good commentary throughout. We found the whole trip amazing and great fun. The security check fee is a little steep I feel, but other than that it’s all good.

we booked with liberty helicopter a helicopter tour which was supposed to be the highlight of our honeymoon in New York City. When we arrived in liberty helicopter south of Manhattan, a not so pleasant lady told us this was the wrong spot, we were supposed to go in liberty helicopter new jersey which was 45 minutes away from where we were. She didn't even bother to call the new jersey agency to tell them we were in the wrong location. All over our tickets it was written manhattan tour so how were we supposed to know it was in new jersey (it was written at the bottom of one of all the mails). We tried to call them, write them mail but no one ever answered. So disappointed, I wouldn't recommand this agency to anyone.

"Wonderful tour of Manhattan! "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 23, 2019
We did the tour of Manhattan and it was spectacular. It was a 15 minute flight but completely worth it. We came all the way to the end of Manhattan and up to Central Park. The only downside is they charge you $5 for a locker. You cannot take anything extra on the helicopters. Great team! They made it an adventure.
