We had a great helicopter flight and are super excited. Our pilot was just great, he personally picked us up and welcomed us. During the flight he took our wishes into consideration and explained a lot to us. It was a birthday present for my boyfriend and he's still blown away. I can only recommend the flight to everyone - NYC from above is a dream and great photos guaranteed.
