New York Helicopter Tour: Manhattan, Brooklyn and Staten Island

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
See New York City like never before on this 25-30 minute helicopter tour. Capture views of iconic Manhattan attractions including the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, the Chrysler Building, the World Financial Center, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and the Brooklyn Bridge, and continue up the Hudson River to the northern point of Manhattan to see even more sights. You'll also enjoy views of Brooklyn and Staten Island. Also fly south to the Verrazano Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in America.

  • Take a thrilling helicopter ride to see New York City from above
  • Enjoy unrivaled aerial views of Manhattan’s most spectacular sites
  • Avoid surprises with all fees and surcharges included in the tour price
  • Upgrade to include a roundtrip shuttle from Midtown to the heliport
What to Expect
Embark on your tour at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, near the southern tip of New York City’s most striking borough, or upgrade your package to include a roundtrip shuttle service from Midtown Manhattan. Begin with a jaunt around its soaring skyscrapers—the Freedom Tower, Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and One World Trade Center. Cruise over the harbor and take in views of France’s famous gift to the United States, the Statue of Liberty, the tiny island where your great grandparents may have entered America, and the world’s first steel suspension bridge, the Brooklyn Bridge. Extend your tour and head north up the Hudson River, checking out America’s first public park (Central Park), one of the country’s oldest universities (Columbia) and the jarringly beautiful Palisades, the sheer cliffs rising just west of Manhattan, and America's longest suspension bridge, the Verrazano Bridge.
