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.

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.

I loved this trip, for the service, tour and accessibility. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone and I would especially recommend this company because they were up front about their costs (no hidden fees) on their website. Thank you!

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.
