What people are saying about Hudson Valley

Must have been done once in a lifetime !!!

The entire organization in advance ran smoothly. We were picked up on time in Harlem and then it was 45 minutes to the departure point outside of New York. There we were received and briefed by the pilot. Then it went straight to the helicopter. Of course we had time for photos and it was already in the air towards Manhattan. Because the helicopter had no doors (we had it removed to be able to take better photos), the direct experience of flying the helicopter was indescribable. The pilot gave us enough time at every hotspot to be able to take a lot of photos. We easily had 40 minutes to take sufficient pictures of all the sightseeing points. Our conclusion: If you really want to experience something extraordinary you should jump over your shadow and spend the money.

Magnificent to see NY from above. Bring earplugs, the helicopter noise is loud.
