This was a fantastic tour over Manhattan that was made that much more enjoyable because of Tim the pilot. Tim was very informative and made the ride wonderful for even this nervous rider. I never imagine a helicopter ride was so smooth!
The staff was very accommodating especially "Turtle" with his good sense of humor at the ticket counter. I highly recommend this tour over Manhattan!!!
