We set up a tour for a Friday night city lights view . Because of weather , our trip had to be cancelled . HOWEVER! We received a text message with instructions to call and discuss our options. A real person picked up the phone and our subsequent several phone calls to make alternative arrangements were easy and unpressurized . Our options were to schedule for an alternative trip on a different day or have our money refunded 100%. We were able to reschedule for a morning flight which was fantastic. The flight team and ground crew were professional courteous and informative . Without hesitation we would recommend this group to anyone wanted to have this experience !

Can highly recommend this tour even if you have to reach Linden airport. I was glad I chose the night tour as it gives you an amazing experience of New Jersey, Manhattan. The pilote was great explaining what we saw and even took us ver central park. DO NOTE!! If you book by this platform, call the company to see if they have your booking. They did not have mine, but I could fly anyway even if it started to be late.
