Firstly, yes it is pricey for the amount of time in the helicopter you get. However... the views are incredible and it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat and I have been recommending it to friends and family. The staff were really friendly, genuine and welcoming - particularly the pilot who had a great... More

Although it does cost something, we decided to end our holidays with a helicopter tour in NYC. It was overwhelmingly good. No one in our family had ever been in a helicopter. It was organised well. We made a reservation before and did not have to wait long to get on the helicopter. The pilot was very friendly (although my... More

That was a great time to share with kids. For their first trip to New York, my two boys will never forget.

We had New York Passes and got 20% off we were told you needed to book 48 hours in advance. Firstly if you just go down to the heliport on the day there are lots of people down there touting for your business so you don't have to book in advance. Many of the touts are offering you cheap deals... More

We booked our flight online before our trips. We arrived earlier than our scheduled flight time and they were more than happy to accommodate us and put us on an earlier flight. A very professional team from start to finish. Being a nervous flyer I was a bit worried but to my surprise I really enjoyed every second of it... More

I would recommend the helicopter ride over Manhattan, its gives you a completely different perspective on the city. You are shown safety videos and given a briefing about the ride, friendly staff who also have a sense of humour, My only criticism would be flight is a bit crammed and pending where you are sitting , some views are restricted....

you can't go to NY without experiencing a helicopter tour, see the city from a totally different view point. There are many helicopter companies and to be honest I think they all offer the same service. we were greeted nicely and quickly escorted through the security checks. The one thing that was annoying is they charge you for a locker... More

I would highly recommend a helicopter ride over NYC with Liberty Helicopters. I booked this before I travelled as my husband is paraplegic and I wanted to make sure that it was all sorted. They couldn't have been better! Nothing was too much trouble and even though my husband is 6'5 they didn't even flinch about lifting him in. It... More

Our flight was sheduled to depart at 1:00pm. We were stressed to be there on time. We had to wait untill 2:40 untill we took off! The staff's very rude. We were told, when we bought the tickets, that it was a 20 minutes flight. In reality it took us 10/12 minutes from take off to landing! The manager was... More

We booked two days in advance but had to queue with passengers that just turned up . We took off 30 mins late . However it was worth the wait. The experience was out of this world. The view was great and the pilot was good but the overall experience of the trip was amazing. Worth every penny !!

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.
