Great experience in NYC, don't miss this. We took the 20 minute tours which was perfect, you just about everything important. Pilot was easy to understand and all the other staff were very polite.

We booked through Living Social. The booking and reservation was an easy process. We got there early and they were able to accommodate us. We did not wait long at all. The locker was free. I would not bring a lot of stuff with you, though. All the guys preparing us for flight were wonderful. The flight itself was the... More

Great experience, brilliant views I was a bit nervous about this but thoroughly enjoyed it. There is a bit of 'hanging around' waiting to get going but once in the air you have an amazing time - the music they play in the helicopter compliments the flight. Will be doing this again next visit

I loved everything about this!! Value for money is perfect. You can't see New York any faster than in a helicopter! Pilot was of course skilled and people were very nice. 12 minutes seems short, but is actually pretty long. Definitely worth it!

Just got back from our holiday to NYC and this was one of the highlights of our trip and would definitely recommend it! We booked the trip online a few months prior to our holiday and bought it as a gift for our friends’ wedding present (they loved it). However there is a helipad charge of about $30 when you... More

The helicopter trips are much the same price whichever company you use. We used Liberty at the downtown Manhattan Heliport and got a great service. The weather for our original booking time was awful, they phoned us early to warn of cancellation and quickly arranged a new time to our convenience. We took the 20 minute flight and had a... More

We used Travelzoo to get a voucher to reduce the cost down to £195 for the grandtour. You have to get the voucher and then call to book. We were booked on the 09.00 and were advised to show up at 08.30. They were late opening up for all companies so were a little disorganised. There are many companies operating... More

We go to New York each autumn, to catch the jazz and other music performances, theatre, musicals and just the vibe of Manhattan. For the first time, though, we decided to take a helicopter tour. Riding in a helicopter proved to be fun experience in itself - much different than riding in a small plane. We did notice that they... More

Me and my new husband decided that we would like to add a helicopter tour as a treat for our honeymoon in New York. We booked vouchers through Travelzoo in the UK and paid significantly less than booking directly. The heliport is easy to find and watching the helicopters taking off and landing from the floating port is quite a... More

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.
