Was lucky enough to have Andrew Woods show us around New York, was definitely a highlight of the trip and would recommend everyone visiting New York contacting Zip Aviation. Without a doubt a must see experience. Andrew has a great Irish sense of humour and would do anything to make your experience memorable.

As parents we know it can be tricky to "wow" teenagers but I have to say that a helicopter ride over New York is a certain winner. This is the most amazing way to enjoy the skyline and the staff and crew at Zip were brilliant. As a family of 4 we got a helicopter to ourselves and all of... More

I booked a tour on the 9th July 2015 with Zip Aviation, the pilot Andrew Woods was fantastic with his knowledge, skills and personable approach! I enjoyed myself so much I booked another tour and requested the same pilot. If you're after the best way to experience New York I highly recommend Andrew and his crew!!

A must do when in New York! We took a 15 minute tour and saw all the sights of Manhattan, saw Brooklyn and New Jersey - pilot was really friendly. This helicopter is also really good as windows go right to the bottom of door where as some only have small windows!

We decided the night before to book the hell tour of NYC rather than stand in line at multiple attractions. What a rush. Simple and efficient sign in process, amazing pilot, comfortable ride. If you only do one thing in NYC this should be it.

Andrew the pilot put me at ease as I'd been really nervous. The trip was the highlight of our trip to NYC and I'd recommend it to anyone. It was expensive, but worth the money because it will be something I'll remember for the rest of my life.

Fantastic! Staff friendly and helpful. Andrew the Captain ( a very charming Irish man ) took time to chat to me and assure me I could sit where I was most comfortable as I am claustrophobic and didn't want people either side of me. So I got to sit with the pilot. One of best things I've ever done, highly... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
