The 20 minute flight was a great way to see the city. We found it particularly useful to do the trip a couple of days in to the visit so we had our bearings and knew what we were looking out for although the trip included an informative commentary. The safety briefing and competent pilot (Andrew) both inspired confidence!

I flew with my dad, on 27 August this year, to celebrate my birthday. The flight was the standard travel and the truth that broke all my expectations. The flight was amazing, with a view of Manhattan that had not hitherto experienced. I did a similar trip last year with another company. The ground staff very welcoming and friendly. The... More

We had such a wonderful experience this past Saturday on our Grand Island Helicopter Tour. We originally had it scheduled for Thursday, 07 Nov, but due to bad weather, they rescheduled us for the following day. We appreciated the change because hell if I was going up in a helicopter during strong winds and rain. Anyways, I got to ride... More

Did the Big City Tour with my "grown up" daughter - we loved every second of it! The staff were super friendly and helpful. The views were amazing and gave us some of the bests pics of our week in NYC. A massive thank you to Santiago and the rest of the staff for making it such a fantastic experience!

What a fantastic experience! Everyone at Zip, from check-in to the loaders and especially our pilot Dave, was fabulous. Courteous, helpful, and friendly. The tour was the Big City Tour, the "middle" level excursion. Beautiful weather certainly helped, but the tour was spectacular. What a unique and exciting way to see NYC. Dave was an exceptional pilot and tour guide,... More

This was on our 'to do list' and was the 1st thing we did as the weather was so good with clear blue skies. It was so exciting even though we did the 12 ish minute tour it was a well spent 175 dollars. My daughter sat in the front with the pilot so had the best of views.

Just returned home after a 10day trip to NY one of the major highlights of this was our flight over New York with Zip Aviation. Our pilot Andrew Woods was the perfect guide explaining the wonders of New York as we went from sight to sight. It was a magical experience. You simply can not visit New York without experiencing...

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood 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.
