Great helicopter ride but make sure you book before you arrive. We walked there from the 9/11 memorial which took around 15 minutes on the off chance we may be able to fly that day but they said it was around a 2 hour wait so we decided to book for the next morning at 9am. They will advise you... More

We had not planned to do the helicopter tour. But on our way back on the ferry from Staten Island we saw the helicopters flying in & out and got interested. Around 1 am we got to the office. We booked under the condition of a quick flight slot and good seating. We flew out around 2 am, with 2... More

The highlight of my trip was seeing New York close up from the air. It is spectacular and gives a real perspective to the size of the city. I did the Central Park tour but would do the Grand Tour next time. The staff were great to deal with, really friendly and efficient.

The New York Helicopter ride was the best experience of our visit! Got to see the city from a completely spectacular perspective. I was lucky enough to sit upfront with an Irish pilot, who was so friendly and gave us a great tour and chatted with us. The staff at pier 6 were hilarious and so welcoming... Thank you for... More

Was supposed to be the highlight of our trip to NYC from the UK, booked weeks ago. Waited for nearly an hour before being lead out to the helicopter, before we got there told to go back. No reason. Wait a while before being told that due to City Rules they had used up all their allocation of flights for... More

The tour was booked for me as a surprise and it was wonderful! We had a clear day and got some amazing views. Well worth a visit, pricey and over quickly, but worth it for the views!

My wife and I booked this trip in advance for her birthday. The check-in process was easy, boarding a breeze and the views were spectacular. We've been to NYC many times and this was our first helicopter trip. Well with the cost.

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.
