It might seem impossible to see the highlights of New York City in just a few minutes, but this small-group helicopter tour makes it a reality. Listen to commentary from your pilot as you fly by the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Central Park, the Chrysler Building, and other landmarks. See more of the city on this tour than you would in an entire day of exploring by foot.

Whilst the sun was unfortunately not shining, the helicopter tour was still worth it, they were flexible on the day when we asked to move the time to the afternoon which was helpful. The tour itself was great, fantastic views and friendly staff.
