It was totally brilliant - Brian (pilot) was a total legend and obviously enjoys what he does and gave us a great ride. We only did the 30min ride this time but hopefully back for a longer one. Definitely the best way to get up close and personal to the Empire State Building!

Fabulous driver, communication on pick ups A+. Our group had people arriving /departing from difficult terminals and they were great with the adjustments. Made traveling with a group of 8 in and out of the city less stressful. Highly recommended!

It was an amazing experience. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Definitely highly recommend to friends and family

Very varied flight around and through New York. Expensive, but worth every cent!

It was great ! Top organization 45 minutes of magic!
