Viator has several helicopter tours in New York. I chose this one instead of the cheaper ones because it spends more time over Manhattan. The price includes a required heliport fee, which the cheaper tours don't include in their prices and you still have to pay it. That means the amount you pay in the end isn't as different as it seems it's not a 100 difference, it's more like 40-60. Most of the tours around this price also fly over Brooklyn, Bronx, and/or Queens. If you're willing to pay that amount but you want to focus on Manhattan, I recommend this one.

Absolutely amazing experience. It was my wife and I's first time in a helicopter and my wife was a little scared before we went up and requested that she sit in the middle at the back. By the time we touched down she was kicking herself that she did not sit in the front which is where they wanted to have her sit as the view is better from the front. They take you to look at all the major attractions and a flight up the Hudson as well. Just book and do it as it is a bucket list item.

Wow! If there is one experience that you must do, then its the helicopter tour! There is so much to do and see in New York, but if your only there for a few days, then this is a 'must do' on your list of activities to see all of the key sites..The scenes are breathtaking and the pilot is really friendly and knowledgeable to help make to most of your time in the air.. Safety is paramount importance to the tour and the team take every moment to ensure you fully understand the safety precautions.. Would I do this again? Absolutely!

A must when in New York. The weather wasn't great but seeing New York from this angle was amazing. Everyone was very friendly and the helicopter itself was a lot posher than I was expecting - really enjoyed it.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

Great service from a professional crew. The weather was good and the pilot pointed out landmarks which come thick and fast. We took lots of photos and enjoyed our 30 minute flight. Great to see NY from the air, throughly enjoyed by both me and the good lady.

Truly great experience, well worth the . Patrick our pilot was amusing to say the least, and very informative. Take the longer trip of 18-20 minutes, we actually had 22, who cares! All the sights were covered on the trip and there's plenty of opportunities for photos all the way through the trip and after you've landed. Many thanks!
