Complete New York, New York Helicopter Tour

Helicopter in Front of Statue of Liberty

Start this exciting aerial tour of New York City by hopping in the helicopter and ascending into the sky above the Big Apple. Fly down the Hudson River passing One World Trade Center, the historic Woolworth Building and the many towers of the Financial District. Then hover over the State of Liberty, getting an incredible view from above before flying near the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge that links Staten Island and Brooklyn.

Later head back up the Hudson, passing along the way the New York Times building, the iconic Empire State Building, Times Square, the Intrepid aircraft carrier and, eventually that large green swath of land known as Central Park. Fly further uptown to see the gigantic St. John the Divine Cathedral, Columbia University, the famed Dakota apartment building and the George Washington Bridge.

Fantastic trip. It was very busy on arrival but we didn't have to wait too long. As we were the lightest we got to sit in the front! Great views across NYC and interesting narration from the pilot. Very fun and would recommend.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

We turned up early as we weren't sure where it was or whether it was easy to find. This wasn't an issue as they put us on the next helicopter. Everyone was friendly and helpful and the pilot had good knowledge of the local areas. My husband loved his birthday present!
