Which New York Helicopter Tour should you pick?

Eric’s tip: There are a number of helicopter tours to choose from. Personally, I have now done four of them and I have found all four of them to be worth the money. The last one that I did was in September 2014, the 15-minute ride (see here). 15 minutes doesn’t seem long, but you can see all the important places and it was a really great experience. If I had to choose, I would go for a 15 or 18-minute ride (see website below). In my opinion, it is the best value for the money. If money was no object, then I would definitely go for the 25-minute “Grand Island” ride. Always book ahead, because this is often cheaper than purchasing your tickets on the day itself. Maybe make it the gift that they will never forget for your wife or husband. If you are looking for something extra special, then I suggest taking an evening helicopter tour with sightseeing cruise.
