Liberty Helicopter Tours New York Reviews
Free as a bird over Manhattan Jul 24, 2008
Helicopter rides are cool. They are cool anywhere in the world, but probably the coolest place of all would be New York. The Manhattan skyline is impressive enough from the ground, but seeing it from the air just adds a whole new dimension to the majesty of the tall buildings.
Liberty Helicopters run an efficient company from two locations in Manhattan, and one in New Jersey.
They run tours of varying length, from a 2-minute take-off and land to a 20-minute full tour of Manhattan island. The latter is highly recommended. It is not cheap -far from it- on a per-minute basis this is probably the most expensive thing I have ever done, but its worth paying the extra dough for the long tour.
The only thing I don't understand is that on top of the advertised pricing you have to pay for security tax and a hefty departure fee. Even so, it's an unforgettable experience and the experience is worth every penny!
