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. 

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

Apart from a bit of a wait in line and the endless repeating safety video the 20 min ride we took was really good, friendly helpful staff and the pilot himself was amazing doing the tour via headphones , talking with the air traffic control all while flying a helicopter at the same time was impressive to say the least , worth every penny ...

Not cheap - especially when you add the 35 dollars for 'safety' per person when you check in. However I do recommend the tour. Excellent views and very enjoyable.

We did this on our last day and were able to see all the places we had visited. Our pilot was great as were all the staff. We had a full 20 minutes which flew by excuse the pun in what was an exceptionally clear day. Definitively worth the money.
