    Check-out at the Pier 6 Heliport

It was amazing to see the whole Manhattan from the above! It was an once in a lifetime experience! I participated this activity by myself and it was my first ever experience to ride a helicopter, but no problem. I had to check in your bags in the locker before boarding. I was asked to inform my weights at check-in, even though I had already submitted it on Veltra site when purchased this activity. I asssume they needed these info to decide the seating arrangements to evenly balance out for the helicopter ride. I sat in the front section of the heli with other 2 female passengers. The back section had 3 male passengers. It may have been slightly expensive, but it was totally worth every penny. I had a great time and enjoyed the wonderful views. Before boarding, they take a commemorative photo, and you can choose to buy it for $20 after you get off the heli. I normally buy these kinds of commemorative photos, but I was so satisfied with this whole activity that I ended up buying it without thinking! It turned out to be a good memorial. I would love to check out the night view from helicopters on my next visit to New York. <Translated by VELTRA.com>

I was nervous at first as it would be my first ride on the helicopter, but with the detailed briefing by the guide and the seat be...lts tightly fastened, I was able to relax. During the tour, the guide pointed the sightseeing spots for us, so I was able to take many pictures. As the helicopter made many turns, I was able to see all the directions. At first, I could not decide between night view tour and this one, but in the end, I think day-time tour is as good as night view tour, because you can see the Central Park and all the buildings in details. <Translated by VELTRA.com> more
