Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances (a family medical emergency) we had to cancel our trip to NYC and the helicopter tour. As per the booking conditions we provided enough notice for...

Not only is NY the most spectacular city in the world, but can only be fully appreciated from the sky above. The staff were brilliant, friendly & courteous & the pilot was an Irish lad loving his job! Must be tough going to work each day. Definitely worth the money for something that is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Make your reservation and be there thirty minutes early. The staff is helpful and friendly. The trip goes by fast. So, soak up the view and take lots of pictures. You never know how you will see. We had a Victoria Secret model come in and take a trip while we were there.

Genuinely stop reading this and just go do it. I mean, for 200 odd dollars to have a once in a lifetime expereince? Totally worth it. Go for the 20 mins I promise you won't regret It. Also all the guys in there are very friendly. You don't have to reserve, although they do reccomend. I was so happy about... More

This seemed to provide a new and unique perspective on the area so we couldn't miss this one? The company offers several packages based on length of trip and also has a private tour option. We took the "cheaper" one because it covered pretty much everything we wanted to see: downtown, midtown, Statue of Liberty, etc. At $199 each it... More

An absolute highlight of our stay. Not cheap but worth it. Ditch something else to squeeze this into your budget. We are a five and my son got to sit up front. Something he won't quickly forget. Do it!!

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

Me and my Dad were on our way to the heli port to book a tour with a helicopter company that we had seen in a guide book, when we got near to the place we were approached by a guy from another tour company, at first I was apprehensive about booking with a company we hadn't heard of but... 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

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.
