I wanted to make something special and unique for my boyfriend’s 35th birthday. I was searching on my phone for different activities, but any of those didn’t catch my attention as when I found private helicopter tour with Viator. I knew this would be a perfect surprise for him and definitely cool experience for both of us, as we have never experienced flying the helicopter before. When I booked our flight, I didn’t say anything until the day we were supposed to leave to Westchester. He felt something is going to be magical, but when he found out he almost didn’t go, I have to admit, both of us were very nervous, and the same time excited. Our hearts were pounding as never before, but thank you to our pilot, he made everything smooth. As soon as we were up in the air our fear disappeared. Breathtaking views of all bridges, Yankee stadium, NJ, beautiful NYC night, streets of Manhattan, the Lady, the Wall Street, Time Square, Ground Zero, etc; it looked so different, so beautiful from up above it’s impossible to even describe our feelings and emotions .... we were so happy we had such an amazing time up in the air. Moreover, our young pilot was very friendly, he even convinced my boyfriend of taking courses to get a license. I was very surprised when in the first place he wasn’t so sure he wanted to do this, but after such an unforgettable moment and experience after we landed, he got super excited and told me - I want to do this again and I want to try to get pilot license. )))
We talked hours after our helicopter tour... Still can’t believe we did this. 45 min fright went by too fast.... but the more is yet to come. Hoping to do this again by watching sunset with my loved one!
On behalf of my boyfriend and I, we wanted to say huge thank you to all the team from Viator! For listening to every detail we requested, and providing us with the best experience of our first, but not least helicopter tour! It was definitely worth it!
We can’t wait to see you again!
