Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

I love that you don't have to be a Rockefeller to enjoy sensational views of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan from the air and the 15-minutes seems a lot longer when you're marveling at the city below. It's a great value and sure to be to the highlight of your time in the Big Apple.

What You Can Expect

Big Apple Helicopter Tour of New York

Helicopter Over New York City

Get your 15 minutes of being up above Manhattan on this exciting helicopter ride. Get a view that few people have the opportunity to see, as this exuberant tour takes you high above the bustling streets of the Big Apple.

Begin near Battery Park at the downtown location of the heliport. As the helicopter lifts off in lower Manhattan, take in the views of One World Trade Center, the Woolworth Building and, of course, the Statue of Liberty. Fly north along the island of Manhattan as you get glimpses of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. Once you reach Midtown, get a bird's eye view of legendary Empire State Building, the Renzo Piano-designed New York Times building and the Art Deco-accented Chrysler Building. Finally, marvel at the large green sprawl that is Central Park before heading back down to the heliport in lower Manhattan again.

Please note: The listed price does not include the heliport/security fee, USD$35.00 per person, payable at the time of tour check-in.

The tour was a birthday present for my wife. Along with a weekend in NYC and tickets to Jersey Boys. The 18 minute flight was perfect. And it was a beautiful clear morning. I will do it again when we come back. Every employee was pleasant and very friendly. Thanks J

Great. A little too short that's all.
The flyer is misleading because it suggests that you will be flying over the city's great landmarks as opposed to a view from the river.
