When be booked a week in advance we were uncertain that it would be an investment. We were in the air no less that 20 mins after we arrived. We saw a security video which is good tho see. The pilot was courteous as well as the land personnel.

So expensive but, oh my goodness, so worth it! You should treat yourself to this experience when in New York. The highlight of our stay (and there were many contenders to that title)! So many fascinating things to see and do in NYC, but for something a bit different - see the Big Apple from the air! Even if it's... More

Yes it was seriously expensive but worth every penny believe me! My husband wanted to experience everything NYC has to offer and this was the highlight of our 6 day trip! We booked the 20min ride and we were lucky enough to have beautiful blue sky's and visibility was spot on! Pre booking is a gamble as you obviously can't... More

The safety was first class. Yes, it takes a little while to get through the safety video, security screening etc but it's all professionally and courteously done. The helicopter itself us "snug" to say the least. There were six of us and I was glad we were all slim. But once up you forgot everything. The views are just amazing... More

When I printed off the ticket I was informed that on the day I would have to pay $35 each for extra security checks. so total was approx. £350. on 09/15/16 we were booked in... More

Dear Reviewer, I am a bit confused by your review as you mostly state that you enjoyed the tour and by the looks of your photos, which are great by the way, you had a clear beautiful day to enjoy NYC. That said, being that the UN General Assembly was coming to NYC this week we are subject to delays... More

I recommend the experience at the end of your visit to New York. It's a good way to recognize and have another view of all places visited

My daughter and I did this it was absolutely brilliant. Loved it even more cause it goes by weight (yes) am only 8stone so we got front seats alongside the piolet. Little prices but got to be done and would do it again.

I know the price may seem steep, especially for the time period but it is amazing!!! One of the best things I truly did while in New York. Experience of a lifetime. The view is spectacular!

It's clearly ludicrously expensive but if you can do it. It's a great view of a great city. The pilot was very friendly as are all the ground staff. A total treat and not to be missed.

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.
