Amazing experience from booking to the coffee after tour

I was reluctant booking our New York helicopter tour with Wings Air Helicopters because of the distance from our hotel (Lower Manhattan). Extremely happy I did use Wings Air Helicopters aviation and will strongly recommend to everyone who wants to see New York from the sky. It was easy getting to the airport (train form Grand central and then short Lyft ride). The staff was amazing, great communication before the flight, warm welcome when you arrive for the tour, unbelievable experience once in the helicopter. Wings Air Helicopters Team really knows how to make you feel special!

An experience not to be missed, but it was very busy!

Great experience and amazing views. Despite the short queues to get in (there was hardly a queue for those without 'skip the line' tickets) it was really busy which spoilt the experience a little. We went to watch the sunset, which may explain why it was so busy - if you do the same I recommend that you get there well in advance to get a good spot to view!

Alle Aktivitäten haben reibungslos funktioniert außer ...

die Fahrt zur Statut of Liberty. The tickets counter was not informed how handling the Sightseeing Flex pass. It toke us about one hour to get the right ticket and queuing/Organisation/Control was to long for this kind of sightseeing. All others Activities did work so well in comparison.

Fantastic tour of a sensitively presented exhibition.

Elizabeth our guide was excellent, bringing the tragedy of 9 / 11 to life in a sensitive and personal way. We thoroughly enjoyed all aspects, the tour, the museum, the memorial and the views from the observation deck of the new building 1 of the World Trade Centre.

A very interesting tour and well worth the money

We spent over the five hours completing the tour and could have taken longer but time was pressing. Our guide was very interesting, the museum very sobering and informative bringing back memories of the day, the Observatory was a good way to finish the event.
