It was an absolute experience to do this tour only with the pilot. Everything went smoothly. You just have to be careful that the departure is not in Manhattan, but in Westchester and that's about 50 km to drive. I overlooked that when booking. So plan some time and money here.

Good experience overall. We made the mistake of arriving too early, so would recommend arriving 15-30 mins before. The title of the trip states that you see the Statue of Liberty, however you got no where near it. Overall was a good experience and the views of New York are great.

Very friendly staff had to postpone very nice contact in advance because of the weather 2 times, but bright blue sky and great view directly over the Empire statebuilding and once around the statue of liberty. Plus a glimpse of the area around the New York capital, which means you can also see the outskirts of New York. Only recommendable!
