Good experience overall. We made the mistake of arriving too early, so would recommend arriving 15-30 mins before. The title of the trip states that you see the Statue of Liberty, however you got no where near it. Overall was a good experience and the views of New York are great.

Es war ein absolutes Erlebnis, nur mit dem Piloten diese tour zu machen. Hat alles reibungslos geklappt. Einzig muss man aufpasssen dass dr Abflug nicht i Manhatten ist, sondern in Westchester und das ist ca. 50 Km zu fahren. Das hatte ich bei der Buchung übersehen. Hier also noch etwas Zeit und Geld einplanen.

Sehr freundliches Personal auch schon vorab sehr netten Kontakt wegen des Wetters 2 mal verschieben müssen, dafür strahlend blauen Himmel und super Blick direkt über das Empire statebuilding und einmal um die Freiheitsstatur herum. Plus Einblick auf die Gegend um die New York Hauptstadt d.h. Man sieht auch mal die Außenbezirke New Yorks. Nur empfehlenswert!
