Catch a bird's eye view of the Big Apple during this helicopter ride over Manhattan. Look out over the Statue of Liberty, Wall Street, the financial district and more. You’ll also spot top sights like Ellis Island and the Empire State Building during this unique sightseeing flight over one of the world's most iconic cities.
The prestations are much better than the rude welcome by the person in charge of security.
This person wanted us waiting outside in freezing temperatures during the flight of our grandkids , arguing that the waiting room was small
Our experience was great but I would have liked to have some kind of information (email, text or something) regarding longer than expected wait time. Since you guys didn’t fly Thanksgiving Day due to uncomfortable wind speed, that rolled over all customers from Thursday’s flights to Friday’s flights.
Get a bird's-eye view of New York City on a brief helicopter tour that soars over the Statue of Liberty, the Chrysler Building, One World Trade Center, and Central Park. While helicopter tours can become expensive quickly, this flight is just long enough to see all the top sights without spending extra time in the air, making it ideal for budget-minded visitors who want to get a comprehensive view of the city.
Make the most of your time in the city that never sleeps on a guided tour of NYC’s top attractions. Travel by both boat (seasonal) and bus as you swing by the 9/11 Memorial, Central Park, Rockefeller Center and more. Then hop aboard a luxury boat for a sightseeing cruise past the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, complete with stunning views of the world-famous skyline and Brooklyn Bridge.
I didnt need to skip the line i went at 5pm so it was empty as it opens till 8pm.amazing experience very sad id highly reccommend it but go in the evening much better.dont go to newyork without seen this
Prebook your admission to the 9/11 Memorial Museum in lower Manhattan, and guarantee your entry to the center that documented the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in 2001. Museum artifacts include first-person accounts of what happened on that September morning in 2001, multi-media displays, and exhibits on history, which commemorate nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives in the attacks.
This experience went well beyond expectations. The tour guide was knowledgeable, funny, and welcoming. The small (aprox. 15) group size allowed for greater discussions of the exhibits. The pass lasts for 3 days and we were able to visit the Cloisters the following day. Highly recommend to anyone interested!
Thousands visit New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art daily to see masterpieces by artists such as van Gogh, Klimt, and Warhol. Rather than negotiate the crowds, enter before the galleries open to the general public on this VIP tour and see many of the museum’s highlights before the bustle begins. Follow a carefully planned, time-efficient route; and explore with a guide who’ll tell tales of the works many visitors miss.
Empire State Building General & Skip-the-Line Tickets
Empire State Building - a must do
, Feb 2020
Love NYC off season! No lines, great views, VERY friendly staff, well ordered in and out - a must do in the NYC area. Went with our triplet gals - just turning 16 - so much to see - loved the museum sections and animated "through the viewers" scenes.
Excellent guide. Explained all the history of the Statue of Liberty including its construction and took photos of us individually with the Statue in the background.
Also informed us which side of the boat was best for taking photos
Very knowledgeable about the immigration process on Ellis Island & in common with myself had an ancestor who immigrated through there

The actual tour itself was informative but the guide tried to be dramatic and it didn’t work. The memorial and museum was amazing and not enough time. We had no time for the Observation Deck at Freedom tour but they let me reschedule to come back.

This was an experience of a life time from the moment we boarded the boat to the end of the cruise. As a V.I.P. Guest we were seated by the huge glass window with a Clear full view Of all the sights all cozie and warm which was brilliant as it was below freezing outside.The service, the food, the sights and most of all the time we spent around the Statue of Liberty was amazing. I would Highly recommend this cruise to anyone going to New York.

Meet your guide at a convenient location in Lower Manhattan, and follow them into the church. As you explore, learn all about the landmark’s place in New York history and discover the final resting place of famous New Yorkers past.
It is a very pity that you have to get a ticket besides your pass. That is why you always are in two lines before you can go in. We were very early by the boat to Ellis island and in two line we were in line for more then 1,5 hour. Als by the 9/11 museum two lines and more then one houre before you can get in!!
Empire state building they could scan the NYC pass directly. Much better!! All the attraction were great to visit. Super!!

Highly recommend this tour. Thankyou Marcos for a great day.
Discover the highlights of the nation’s capital on a hassle-free guided tour from New York City. While visiting Washington DC from NYC can be a long day trip to make on your own, by booking this tour you can relax on a comfortable coach and learn historical details from your guide throughout the journey. This enables you to maximize your time and arrive well rested rather than tired from driving.
Excellent service and a very friendly driver. Organised in a timely fashion and very affordable and convenient if you are carrying a lot of luggage. The only issue was that it took a while to leave the airport (many passengers were picked up from different terminals). Be aware that a journey can take a long time during rush hour, but this issue exists even if you take a taxi or Uber.
Ensure a hassle-free arrival in New York and avoid expensive taxis with this pre-booked transfer. Travel from JFK International Airport (JFK), LaGuardia Airport (LGA) or Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to any Manhattan hotel in a comfortable shared-ride vehicle. Transfers are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so there's no need to worry about waiting around after an early morning or late night flight.
Loved the carolers and Santa Claus at the top.
Very festive and a nice surprise!
My cocktail was WAY too expensive at $20.50. I ordered a Crown and Coke, but they only had Pepsi. Yes, there IS a taste difference.

Did the first one with same company in 2012, nothing changed apart from this one only 20 minutes. Fantastic flight as the sun was going down over New York, still great service, even though we were very late. Would recommend to everybody.
New York's iconic landmarks, mighty rivers, and islands are even more impressive from the air. On this tour, soar over Manhattan’s most famous sights in a helicopter and enjoy spectacular aerial views of the Big Apple. There's plenty of time time to see Liberty Island, the Empire State Building, and Governor’s Island.
We visited Top of the Rock at 10am on our last day in New York. It was the highlight of our trip. It was not very busy so we had a very relaxed experience. It was sunny so it wasn’t too cold -even for January. The visibility was excellent so the views of Central Park, the Statue of Liberty and lower Manhattan were unforgettable!
Get the best view in all of New York City from the Top of the Rock Observation Deck at Rockefeller Plaza. Soak up three floors of indoor and outdoor viewing areas and admire the Big Apple’s popular landmarks, such as One World Trade Center, the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and more.
It was a wonderful experience , staff are well trained , so professional and helpful, the captain was amazing , Hellicopter was almost new and super clean , and seeing new york from the sky is a different taste , my advice to everyone to try it 🙂👌
Great view of New York and would recommend to anyone visiting the City. My only feedback and why I wouldn't give 5 stars is the poor organisation we came across. We were told to arrive half hour before our time slot which was 12pm so we got to the tour at 11:30am, we waited in the waiting area till about 12:10 to finally be called over and driven over to where you get the Helicopter from. We were put in a room and told that someone would come and get us shortly for our turn. We waited in the room for about half an hour and had around 4 different people come in and say we had been on already right? But we hadn't. A guy then came in and told us we were waiting in the wrong room and moved us into another room we had originally came in through, we were then told we would be going on shortly and continued waiting till approx. 1:15pm when we finally were taken outside for our turn. Our time slot was between 12-1pm and by the time we had finished and had been driven back to the start it was around 2pm so the whole thing took approx. 2.5hrs, not ideal if you are in New York a short amount of time like we were and half of your day is wasted by waiting around!
There’s no better way to see New York than from the air and helicopter tours don’t have to cost the earth. Feel the history as you soar above Ellis Island, Wall Street, Brooklyn Bridge, and more on this short but perfectly tailored flight that brings you eye to eye with the iconic Statue of Liberty. Choose between multiple departures throughout the day, with a maximum of six travelers per flight.
The New York Pass: 100+ Attractions including Empire State Building
The New York pass
, Sep 2019
Purchased the 5 day pass and did an itinery before leaving for NYC, pre-booking two Ride trips and a wall street walking tour. It was a full-on trip and we saved a lot of money. It would of cost 442.00 dollars each based on everything we did, so for a family of 4 adults it definitely was worth the money. Purchasing it from Viator did save us some money. Once I got the tickets I screen shot them to a folder on my photos and had no problems. I did take a paper copy, just in case. Would definitely recommend if you plan ahead.
Simplify your trip to the Big Apple, save time and money, and gain access to more than 100 New York attractions, experiences, and tours with this New York Pass. Choose from 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, 5-, 6-, 7-, and 10-day pass options, granting you access to top NYC attractions including the Empire State Building, the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, The Metropolitan Museum, American Museum of Natural History, cruises, and more.

I really liked the service, the driver is very polite and helpful, came in correct time. The van has a lot of space and very confortable for the passengers.

New York Helicopter Tour: Manhattan, Brooklyn and Staten Island
, Nov 2019
Am still in awe of my flight, 4 days after I did it and arrived back home. I got to sit next to the pilot, which was phenomenal, especially as I'd celebrated my 50th birthday 2 days previously! Absolutely out of this world and thoroughly recommended.
