Once you reach Midtown, enjoy a bird's eye view of the Empire State Building, the New York Times Building and the Art Deco design of the Chrysler Building.

This was our favorite activity whilst in NYC for 10 days. Don't waste your trying to get to every corner of Manhattan, take the 15 min flight and see the entire island. Our pilot was fantastic, view unbelievable. Highly recommended.

It was amazing-unfortunately we had the only rain of,the day but it didn't spoil our trip. I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. When we asked ourselves what was the highlight of our holiday it was really tricky as we had such an amazing time in New Yotk, we all picked the helicopter tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

highly recommended.... it wouldve been better experience if the pilot had adjusted the frequency of his radio- we can hear the conversation of the ground staff and the other helicopter pilots in the area- pilot wasnt very informative partly maybe coz we barely hear what he's saying- at one time he even asked another staff what else does he know about the washington bridge... anyway, its still an experience... though i took the same helicopter ride last year- i noticed that we werent as close to the hgihlighted areas as we were from our last years ride maybe a different company

Fabulous trip around Manhattan, and will be a MUST DO, on any other visit to NY in the future. Getting up close to many of the City's famous places gives a different perspective to the skyline.

A brilliant way to see New York. The pilot was friendly and pointed out all the sites as we flew over. It was made extra special because we were sat in the front.

Our helicopter flight over New York was fabulous. The only way to see the city and gain a true perspective of the buildings, the bridges, the river and ,of course, the Statue of Liberty. Undoubtedly true value for money and we would do it again in a. Heart beat.
