An absolute must for an amazing bird's eye view of the city. It's well worth the even if it is a bit short in duration. Would definitely recommend first time visitors to NYC do this tour!

The perfect way to end my NYC experience, really something special and our pilot was fantastic - the music played through the headphones was perfectly chosen too.
Highly recommend!
