Great way to spend a half hour and see the highlights on NYC. Well organised, great informative pilot. A bit squeezed with 6 in the helicopter and very pricey souvenir photo, but a great experience. Not sure how good it would be if the weather wasn't clear but when the sky is blue go for it.

It is very useful to see NYC from the bird hight. You are getting really good impression about size of NYC and NYC area. The Manhattan is wonderful. The Statue of Liberty looks like a souvenir at the shop. It does not take long but it is enough. Very memorable experience.

Oh wow, this must be the best way to see the city from above. We had a clear day and took the 20+ minutes tour. Highly recommend.

My husband and I recently visited NYC and chose to use Liberty Helicopter Tours on my birthday. What a wonderful trip this was. The staff were excellent in explaining all, walking you through safety procedures and calming my nerves! The helicopter flight was fantastic! It showed you views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and the skyline of Manhattan.... More

Yes, expensive, but I am not likely to go to New York again and what a way to see it!!! We had been in New York for 3 days before we went on the helicopter flight which lasted about 30 minutes and it was fabulous to see and be able to recognise the places and buildings we had visited! We... More

The positive of this trip was the helicopter flight itself. Amazing 20 minute trip round The Statue of liberty, down the Hudson river to the George Washington Bridge. Amazing views and our pilot was very good, she pointed out relevant landmarks and gave some history behind them. The negative - I had booked a flight for 11:15am, luckily we had... More

Brilliant time, amazing weather in October obviously helped. Seeing the Manhattan skyline in the helicopter really made it a great day. Would 100% do it again.

I spent a long time trying to choose between the helicopter companies and I think they are probably all OK, however, Liberty was brilliant. We booked in advance via their own website and paid the landing fees upfront ... so no extra surprise charges like some other companies have. You buy a ticket but then have to book a time.... More

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.
