New York Helicopter Tour: City Skyline Experience
From US$244.00
Low Price Guarantee
Get a rare view of the Manhattan skyline from above on this short small group helicopter tour. Listen to the pilot’s live commentary from personal headsets, ensuring you don’t miss any landmarks along the way. Capture photos of the Empire State Building, Freedom Tower, Brooklyn Bridge, and Central Park, and make memories to last a lifetime.
What to Expect
Make your own way to Linden Municipal Airport in New Jersey (a 35-minute train ride from New York Penn Station). On arrival, receive a safety briefing and overview of the trip itinerary.
After takeoff, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island come into view. Keep your camera at the ready for a bird’s-eye view of the Manhattan skyline from above.
As you fly over Williamsburg and the Brooklyn bridges, you spot the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, and United Nations. The pilot’s live commentary ensures you never miss a landmark.
Next fly over Central Park—this is a rare opportunity that many helicopter tours do not include. You also get a look at Times Square and Rockefeller Center from above before continuing along the Hudson River.
End the tour on a high note by soaring past the Freedom Tower and 9/11 Memorial, before returning to the departure point.

Forget about the rooftops of Empire State, Rockafeller or WTC - take helicopter instead, cause its 100 better than all the turist traps can offer! You see the real magnitude and beauty of NYC skyscrapers and panoramas!

Excellent experience. Staff very helpful and friendly. From pickup at train station to drop off afterwards, everything went like clockwork. Flight was amazing, and lasted about 30 minutes with a very informative pilot. Well worth the money, and the effort of leaving Manhattan to travel...More

This was an excellent trip and I was lucky enough to be sitting next to Andrew the pilot in the front, so had an excellent view. Expensive for such a short trip, but mine was part of a prize so didn't cost me anything.
