New York Manhattan Scenic Helicopter Tour

Enjoy Fantastic Views of Iconic Landmarks of New York

Your flight departs from Downtown Manhattan’s Heliport. From there it’s on to Governor’s Island, which was once a Revolutionary US Army post. After that you’ll soar past the towering figure of the Statue of Liberty, enjoying an up-close encounter with one of the nation’s most powerful landmarks. Be sure to have your camera ready to capture memorable shots of this icon of freedom.
Bid farewell to Lady Liberty as your pilot takes you over the sobering location of Ground Zero and the 9/11 memorial. After that, your modern helicopter will head north above the mighty Hudson River where you’ll be treated to the sight of two magnificent art-deco landmarks: the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings.
Continue your flight north over New York’s tribute to nature, Central Park. From there you’ll catch sight of the George Washington Bridge, the glitz of Times Square, and renowned entertainment arena, Madison Square Garden. Your tour continues back toward the river where you’ll enjoy a look at the powerful WWII warship the USS Intrepid before hovering over Ellis Island, the nation’s historic tribute to immigration. This helicopter tour allows you to enjoy all of New York City’s most famous sites without having to battle the crowds.

This was the most amazing part of the trip. The weather was great clear skies. From arrival to departure after the flight we were looked after. The staff explained the procedures and what to expect. You could buy photographs but the staff were not pushy about this product.
Our pilot was chatty and all the passengers were able to talk to each other.
Due to heavy amounts of traffic we received a couple of extra minutes in the air.
This trip was worth the money a great experience i would recommend it to everyone.

Had an awesome experience. Took my hubby on the helicopter ride for his 30th. Staff was very friendly, pleasant and punctual. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has never flown. This was both of our first time and we had a blast!

All staff were polite, friendly and efficient, making sure we were safe at all times.
The pilot was chatty but didn't overdo it and left us to enjoy the flight.
Pricey but worth it because you see New York in all its glory.
