Overview
All aboard for a bird’s-eye view of Manhattan on a helicopter tour of top New York City sights. See Central Park, the Hudson River, Rockefeller Center, and the Empire State Building, and fly past the Statue of Liberty, South Street Seaport, and the 150-year-old Brooklyn Bridge. Treat yourself to all this plus even more of New York's famous skyline. Several departure times are available throughout the day.

Highlights
  • Enjoy an aerial perspective on New York City that most visitors miss
  • See many of Manhattan’s famous landmarks in a single ride
  • Multiple departure times throughout the day suit every itinerary
  • Your guide’s live commentary ensures you don’t miss any sights
What to Expect
Based on your tour’s departure time—there are multiple tours throughout the day, from morning until sundown—make your way to the Downtown Manhattan Heliport on the island’s southern tip or upgrade to include a shuttle from Midtown Manhattan. Following a safety briefing and preparations, climb aboard a comfortable helicopter and buckle in. As you take to the air, you are immediately rewarded with views over the city that most visitors miss out on. From this lofty vantage point, see many Manhattan’s most famous sights, including the Empire State Building, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, the Hudson River and more. You also catch glimpses of landmarks beyond Manhattan, like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Throughout the flight, enjoy your pilot’s guided commentary. Your tour concludes back at your original departure point.
