Helicopter Over New York City

Begin your helicopter tour near Battery Park, at the downtown location of the heliport. As you lift off over lower Manhattan, take in the rare views of One World Trade Center, the Woolworth Building and the Statue of Liberty.

Continue north along the island of Manhattan for a glimpse of the Brooklyn Bridge. Once you reach Midtown, enjoy a bird's eye view of the Empire State Building, the New York Times Building and the Art Deco design of the Chrysler Building. Then marvel at the large green sprawl of Central Park before heading back to the heliport in lower Manhattan.

Absolutely phenomenal experience which I will NEVER forget! I was given this as a gift for my 18th birthday and it was fantastic! The staff were really friendly and got us on to the helicopter as quick as they could so I was not wasting too much time sitting about instead of exploring the big apple! The flight it self was about 15 minutes and saw some breathtaking views of NYC! Well worth the money and would highly recommend to anyone who is not afraid of heights and wants a real view of NYC...

Money well spent. Liberty helicopters were an extremely professional tour company which put my parter and I completely at ease for our first ever helicopter ride. We enjoyed every second of this experience and would highly recommend it to everyone young or old!

The admin side was a little frustrating- don't forget to phone 48 hours in advance... but once we got booked in it ran smoothly and the helicopter tour did not disappoint! It would be my highlight of our trip and worth every penny!

wonderful experience with a very safety conscious team.
good clear explanation and directions.
the only negative was making the phone call and the length of time waiting to speak to book and pay for the flight, this definitely needs to speed up.

It was an amazing experience. Just wished it wasn't so short.

It's kind of intimidating when the run you through all the rules on the day, but once you're in the chopper and seeing the city... breathtaking.
