Good morning! We did a lot of reviews for the different helicopter rides and Liberty was, by far, the best of the lot. Excellent service, superb pilots, excellent location and the fantastic equipment (helicopters). I am not a good flyer and don't particularly like being in the air but after having done this ride I have to say that I would do this again. It is expensive but it worth doing and it is something that will give you good memories for a very long time. I would say your best choice out there is Liberty. This is the gold standard by which all the rest have to measure up to.
Have a great time in New York and enjoy your ride!!!
