I booked a helicopter trip with Liberty Tours as a surprise for my husband's 40th birthday and it certainly did not disappoint. This was the highlight for both of us of our trip to NYC, I thoroughly recommend anyone to take a helicopter ride. Our tour was booked for 1.30 pm, we arrived at around 12.30 and after a few quick security checks and a safety demonstration, we went straight on board the helicopter. Have some amazing pictures which we will treasure for a lifetime.

I've done a few helicopter tours before in different locations, but this one had great views. I lucked out on the weather and the pilot did a nice job pointing out landmarks for both sides of the helicopter.

Amazing experience. If you are in New York don't miss it. Although it's for 15-20 min it feels longer in the air. The pilot is really nice and knowledgeable and the views breathtaking. It also helped that we had a gorgeous day for November with blue skies and sunny with no wind at all.
