Our ride got cancelled due to bad weather, we were told to email to claim a refund. 2 months later - NOTHING. We call and they make excuse after excuse. Say they will email or call back and nothing.

It was certainly one of the most awesome highly enjoyable experiences we have ever had in 25 minutes. I could think of no better way to see Manhattan and the highly organised team made our trip one we will always remember.

I don’t know where to find the cheapest, but HeliNy is one of the best! They are very safety conscious and do a great tour ! We took this tour on our first trip to NYC. Enjoy the ride!!
