Totally worth it. Best experience ever and best way to see the city. Sunset time is perfect to see the changing lights of skyscrapers and buildings. The Duration is enough, you get the chance to see everything. Likely we were only 4 and we were at the sides, but I wonder if the seats in the middle are as good as the ones near the windows. Only flaw of the helicopter were the windshields that could have been cleaner..

The helicopter ride is great, at the breathtaking sunset! IMPORTANT INFO: if you come from NY and take the train to Linden (New Jersey) as the agency advises. You should know that once you get to Linden it is very complicated to find a taxi, impossible for us!!!! So we made the journey on foot without really knowing where we were going, we asked the locals for help… we really just arrived. It spoiled the activity a bit… the meeting point (Linden airport) and Linden train station are not very close, it's a long walk.

I didn't book transportation, so I planned a day in New Jersey. In the end I was almost 1.5 hours early at the meeting point. I was immediately offered an earlier flight so I didn't have to wait that long. The crew members were all very friendly and the sightseeing flight was super nice. You could take a lot of pictures and videos. In my opinion, the flight could have gone all day. It was definitely worth it.
