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!

Best thing I did on our visit to New York. We were so lucky to travel on a bright clear blue sunny day. I got to ride up front with the pilot which was amazing!! Our pilot was fantastic and so funny! The views are incredible! Such an amazing experience! Would highly recommend!!!!

I booked the Liberty Tour with TravelZoo vouchers as a present. The staff were great and the experience not to be missed. The pilot was friendly and informative and although clearly not cheap, it gave a perspective on New York that is unique. Brilliant

After a week of walking around New York and then seeing the sights from the water taxi, we very nearly did not go on the helicopter ride as well. We are a family of five with the eldest child at 14 and the youngest being only 4. Thats a wide audience to please in one activity! It was my husbands... More

We took the 20 min tour and it was well worth the extra money. I had taken a shorter helicopter tour about 4 years ago in NYC and this was much better. Great views of all Manhattans major landmarks and the helicopters are much better with floor to ceiling windows offering much better views. If its a first time visit... More

If your in New York, this is a must BUT it's expensive. Then selling you photos afterwards, really this should be in the price.

I did the 30 minute tour of both the statue and of midtown/central park - Really was incredible. 6 to a helicopter, so one person ends up in a middle seat (thankfully i had a window). The pilot is very informative and tells you exactly what you're looking at throughout the flight. Tip: don't go when there is a Yankees... More

If I was basing my review strictly on the experience, then I would definitely be giving it 5-stars!! However, I paid $155 for 15 minute tour ($10/minute), which turned out to be only 11 minutes. According to the pilot, we "had good tail winds". When I am flying NYC to LAX, a good tailwind is appreciated to shorten the flight.... 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.
