This was one of the highlights of our trip, we had both never been in a helicopter, so it was a really great experience. We did the 20 minute trip, which went by so fast, was definitely worth the money. Prepare yourself for breathtaking views of the statue of liberty and the city. I was the smalledt on oyr flight,...

Five of us were booked to do the helicopter ride on my birthday and we were not disappointed. The flight was brilliant and if you get a chance you have to do this. The staff were really friendly and made a fuss of me on my special day. My daughter and I sat in the front of the copter while... More

Our helicopter our was a wedding gift, and it was one of the highlights of our honeymoon! There isn't a long time to wait, considering how many people must go through in one day (we were surprised how popular it was!) and everything is very well organised, with friendly staff. Take a good quality camera and lens to get the... More

If you can afford it, add it to your to do list when visiting NY. Pilot was very helpful. Lots of useful information during the tour. I bought... More

We did the 15 minutes Big Apple helicopter tour. The staff in the terminal building are friendly and helpful though realistically only lip service was paid to security. She waved a metal detector wand around me. It needs looked at as a matter of urgency. Let's not forget ! It's run with an emphasis on speed of change over between... More

My boyfriend took me up for valentine's day! He knew it was something I would truly enjoy! It was a wonderful thought but the tour itself was ok. It was very short and the pilot spent time talking to the young lady in the front seat with him- rather than all of us including her boyfriend who had to sit... More

Dear Reviewer, Sorry to read that you were not 100% satisfied with your tour. However, I must point out to you a discrepancy in your review. Our helicopters do not seat 5 passengers in the back. We seat 3-4 passengers in the back. That being said, please email me with the day and time of your tour so that I... 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.
