Did not pre-book, saw heliport while riding Staten Island ferry and went over to investigate. Several companies operate from pier 6, but New York Helicopter offered the best price, 199 USD inclusive for the 15 minute Liberty Tour. We were advised we could fly in the next 30 minutes. Customer service staff were friendly, helpful and patient...I had a few... More

I was really looking forward to my ultimate helicopter trip booked through the Virgin concierge. Many people on reviews said this was the highlight of their trip. Not mine tho. On arrival to the heli port we were made to wait about 45 minutes standing in one spot waiting for trips to come and go. Bit too long in my... More

Went on 20min tour for the first time in a helicopter and it was the best ride of my life. The crew here are friendly and service during booking was easy and great communication. I highly recommend this company to anyone and would love to do this again

The flight was a bit of a whistle stop tour, but was enjoyable. I was disappointed that we didn't get close to Statue of Liberty as the brochure shows helicopter hovering in front of it. Felt like the whole thing was a bit rushed so they could get back for the next bunch of tourists paying $280 each. Got some... More

Most of the helicopter tours are from Pier 6. There, they will ask you 199$+35$ heliport fee=234$ per person. So, what we did is to BOOK BEFORE COMING : you can easily do it just a few hours before (even during peak season) and and it will cost you 165+35=200$. But the most important is to NEGOCIATE A SEAT IN... More

Had a choice of 4/5 companies (on the street near Pier 6) and chose these guys as the price they quoted was all inclusive of tax etc. The dispatcher was nothing but accommodating, ensuring I could sit upfront. (I was travelling solo). Possessions were kept safely in a locker, safety procedures explained and the flight was well worth the money.... More

What a way to see a totally different view of the New York skyline, an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone! We were well looked after, told all about safety procedures, had photos taken ( a little expensive but worth it) and all in a professional but friendly way. If you only do one thing while your are...

We took the heli for the second time and had this time opted for the 20 minute version. Undoubtedly the best way to see the city. If you are lucky and the weather is perfect you'll for sure have an unforgettable experience. Recommended are the hours in the afternoon for taking brilliant pictures. Highly recommended although prices are high.

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.
