Only to be recommended! It really is worth every penny. We took the train from Grand Central to White Plains ($45 round trip for 2 people) and then took an Uber to the airport (about $15-20 one way). Everything worked great. Unfortunately, GetYourGuide did not transmit our booking, so we briefly feared that we would not be able to fly. However, our pilot Anthony took care of it directly and after a short clarification and paying the $37 airport fee per person we were able to fly (half an hour later than planned). Unfortunately, the half hour passed far too quickly, which is why we would definitely choose the 45 minutes next time :-) we are going at sunset and can really only recommend it - it's best to check beforehand when the sun goes down! All in all an unforgettable experience!

The helicopter's home base is far from the city. But you get to see a lot of the surrounding area. The beautiful suburb of Harrison and White Plane is worth seeing from above. Seen from the houses, just the opposite of New York City. But you should book at least one flight hour, since the approach time to New York takes some time.

Fantastic service, from pick up/return from our hotel, to the full experience of having our very own helicopter pilot! Flew all the way to midtown and got up close to the Empire State Building. The only company allowed into this air space. Very knowledgeable and friendly,, and got us some amazing photos! Thank all and would highly recommend.
