What You Can Expect

Viator VIP: NYC Night Helicopter Flight and Statue of Liberty Cruise

Experience a sublime sunset or evening views on a cruise around the harbor

Head to Pier 6 in lower Manhattan to hop on the helicopter at the heliport. As the helicopter begins its ascent into the sky, note views that are already taking shape: the Brooklyn Bridge, One World Trade Center and the Brooklyn Bridge. Soar through the sky above the Big Apple, drinking in the awesome sights. Marvel at Central Park, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, Times Square, the New York Times Building. Follow the Hudson River, a water way that acts as a boarder between New York City and New Jersey. 

After your 15-minute ride in the helicopter, get escorted over to nearby pier 6 where you'll board a comfortable boat for a ride around New York Harbor. The 1-hour ride on the water taxi takes you right by the Statue of Liberty where you'll have the opportunity to have a Champagne toast right in front of Lady Liberty. When the time comes, disembark from the boat back at the pier where the tour concludes.

If you only do one thing while you're in NY. DO THIS!!
Completely amazing, the views are breathtaking and I got so many great photos of NY at night which has made fantastic wall art. Everything was so well organised from waiting in line to boarding the helicopter. The guys there keep you entertained with funny tales and brain teasers. The river cruise was also very good and it made such a difference seeing Lady Liberty at night. Can't fault it and can't wait to do again

Has to be the best trip in New York,
the helicopter flight at night was stunning and the views even better, the Pilot was friendly and pointed out all the landmarks and everybody was given the same stunning views.

The statue of Liberty cruise was good but the Champagne toast in a small plastic glass left a lot to be desired.

Cannot rate this trip highly enough, crew and ground staff all excellent and the staff on the cruise were also excellent, if your thinking of doing a helicopter flight i would highly recommend doing the night flight as the views of New York's skyline at night took our breath away.
