A Fantastic Experience!

You'd want to go again. Not just for the fantastic flight experience. But for the great service. Please also opt for the optional pick-up and drop from your hotel. Its absolutely worth it. The tour started with the pick-up from our hotel in Lower Manhattan. Our driver was an Italian, Domenico. Spoke perfect English and was really punctual! He drove a black Nissan Murano, an excellent vehicle. He was able to strike a nice conversation as well. The drive to Westchester Airport takes a good 1 hr 15 mins from Lower Manhattan. But the ride is scenic and absolutely worth it!
Coming to the actual flight experience. Our captain was Lance (pardon me if I got this wrong!). Had a very accommodating and friendly demeanor. There was moderate rain but he was able to expertly guide the chopper so as to avoid the dark clouds and yet make our flight memorable. He forgot to take the Champagne Bottle on board! But we didn't mind! The supreme service made up for all that!
On the return drop, Domenico, the driver, dropped up us to a real fine-dining Italian restaurant, Trattoria L'Incontro.
As far as the booking experience is concerned, I would suggest that you call them up first and confirm the availability of the slot which you would want to travel and then do the booking online. Anna handles the booking and you would find her very helpful.
This was one trip to remember.
Fantastic experience, a must do.

Inspite of having a one hours trip by car (Uber) from our hotel to the base, it was more than worthwile!
Nice people, a fantastic pilot and a scenery one will never forget.
We did a 45 minutes private tour, without Champagne, as our teens were with us.
It has been the absolute top experience during our one weeks stay.
Very nice and clean helicopter, everything was perfect.
We would do it again!
