Pictures of the whole New York

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 belts 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.

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.
