Safe, professional, clean and of course amazing tour /views of Manhattan!
Sep 2021
Trip was amazing from start to finish. Security, safety, professionalism, and of course amazing tour / views of Manhattan! Greeted at the front door, security checked, seamless check in, watched a safety video, escorted to the beautiful and clean aircraft. Assigned seats were given based on weights and then you're in the air! Windows were abundant and clean easy to get great photos. Up and down the Hudson River for us and my two kids (13 & 10) couldn't stop smiling and taking videos and photos. Highly recommend taking this adventure with HeilNY and getting this wonderful experience you and your friends/family will never forget!

Very good experience. The problem is that they didn’t take a lot of pictures at the beginning even if we asked them to. (Just 2-3 more instead of 1-2).

Thank you for your feedback. We typically do not have a lot of time between flights to take additional pictures so this might have been the case. We will bring this to the attention of our staff and see if improvements can be made. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your flight!

Great experience! Great location, great service!

Great experience. Great location. Very efficient process!
This whole experience was great from start to finish. It was a present for my 16 year old nephew’s birthday. They checked our temperatures outside, made sure we were wearing a mask. Took us inside, I signed a straightforward release. They put packed life vest around our wais, we sat down for maybe 5 minutes and then they called us up to line up. Our tour was to be at 10am (they asked us to get there at 930) and we were in a helicopter by 950. The helicopter was excellent. We had 5 people total and every person had a window seat with their configuration style. They driver was knowledgeable and friendly. We booked a 20 minute tour and saw all of Manhattan!
