We had informed ourselves in advance when the sunset was, as we would have liked to wait for this beautiful time. It was of course very annoying that we had a delay of more than 30 minutes. The greeting and check-in until the flight was very impersonal and also annoying due to the waiting time. The experience in itself was really nice, we sat on the sides and had a great view. The person in the middle obviously had less fun or was disappointed that they were put in the middle. Overall a really great impression of the skyline, a nice pilot and cool experience.

Great Tour! No extra costs were charged (you have to be careful with other providers who often charge an extra $50 landing fee in the small print), everyone was very nice - the pilot was very friendly and the flight was even longer than expected (but I didn't stop). All in all perfect and above all sufficient for a view over New York! We loved it!!
