New York Helicopter Tour: Manhattan Highlights
US$ 249.00

Get a perspective on New York City that most visitors miss when you take to the air for a scenic helicopter tour. See Manhattan’s most iconic sights, from the Empire State Building to Central Park, in a matter of minutes; you even catch a glimpse of the majestic Statue of Liberty. Tours are held throughout the day, so you can choose a departure time that suits your schedule.

What to Expect

Based on your tour’s departure time—there are multiple tours throughout the day, from morning until sundown—make your way to the Downtown Manhattan Heliport on the island’s southern tip.

Following a safety briefing and preparations, climb aboard a comfortable helicopter and buckle in. As you take to the air, you are immediately rewarded with views over the city that most visitors miss out on.

From this lofty vantage point, see many Manhattan’s most famous sights, including the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, Greenwich Village, One World Trade Center, and the Hudson River. You also catch glimpses of landmarks beyond Manhattan, like the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Throughout the flight, enjoy your pilot’s guided commentary.

The flight lands back at the Downtown Manhattan Heliport, where the tour ends.
