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.

Big Apple Helicopter Tour of New York

Helicopter Over New York City

During this 15-minute New York helicopter flight, get a view of Manhattan you’d never see from strolling around on the streets. Come face to face with the Statue of Liberty and fly past the Empire State Building, and zoom right over the Hudson River en route to the George Washington Bridge. The flight departs from the Downtown Heliport by Battery Park and Wall Street, and also includes views of the World Financial Center as well as Ellis Island. Throughout the flight, your pilot is able to provide running commentary on the buildings outside the window. This is one of the best ways to escape New York’s crowds—by dramatically taking to the skies!

Please note: There is an additional the heliport/security fee, USD$35.00 per person, paid when you check-in for your tour.

Wow! We were both so nervous but needn't have been. A very professional company and our pilot was great. Smooth take off and landing with amazing views of the city- plenty of time to take photos of the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Centre, Empire State and Brooklyn Bridge to name but a few of the sights.

Fantastic way to see the City :-

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Great day to go flying and the ride didn't feel too short. Highly recommend the flight. Only negative is the 35 each security fee, which seems to be steep!

It was AMAZING...

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Overall it was a good experience the Only thing was that One of the helicopters had a mechanical issue so they were backed so we were waiting outside for a while. It was hot out so I think they should have let us inside and wait there. But once we were in they gave us water. Staff was really nice.
