As one of the cheapest helicopter tours available, this was worth it. It's an awesome experience and quite frankly, the helicopter was so steady and the pilot was so gentle to it that the whole thing felt surprisingly safe and comfortable. The views of Manhattan are without doubt unique, from all the way up there. I originally thought 15 minutes would be too short, but it's actually fine.
