Deciding to take helicopter tours of New York or any city isn’t something that just pops into your head that you do. You must plan and think through your trip. If you have already considered a trip to New York, then you should also consider helicopter tours as it is a great way to see the sights in a new way. However, there are some things to consider when scheduling your tour.
Helicopter tours are fun and exciting, but it is important to consider the companies that perform these tours. You need to find one that offers experienced pilots and is reputable. This can include offering refunds or different-day tours if severe weather occurs or you need to cancel or change the trip days.
Also, look for companies that offer information online. You want to be able to browse through their information, paying attention to the about us section, which should give contact information. You will also want to ensure the company has been around for a while, which will usually mean they have the experience necessary to do these tours the right way.
Consider the Options
You will have many options from which to choose for the type of tour you want. You may want a short tour, about 15 minutes, or may want to consider a longer tour, around 25 minutes. The length of the tour may not matter at all, but rather what you see while on a tour of New York. If you really want to see the Statue of Liberty from a bird’s eye view, then choosing a tour that doesn’t offer that sight may be very disheartening.
In a few cases, you may be able to request a personalized tour option of New York, though many companies don’t provide this. You may really want to see both the South Street Seaport and Yankee Stadium, but one tour doesn’t cover both options. However, most companies offer a “grand tour,” along with other options so that you can see everything you want, and some you may not have even heard of before.
Ask the Right Questions
Many tours require you to have specific shoes or only allow a certain amount of personal belongings. You will want to find out before the tour what you need to have or need to leave at the hotel. You should also ask about cancellation policies and refunds, along with how they handle inclement weather.
