It’s almost impossible to see New York City’s main sights all in one day—let alone in one night. This NYC night helicopter tour packs in aerial views of the Statue of Liberty and other top attractions without making you wait in multiple lines back on the ground. Plus, the heliport fees and fuel surcharge are included, so there are no big surprises on the day of your tour. For added convenience, upgrade to include a roundtrip shuttle service to the heliport.
  • See more NYC sights in a shorter amount of time than on the ground
  • Get a nighttime skyline view of NYC skyscrapers and bridges in one ride
  • Hear your guide clearly during this New York City helicopter tour with headsets 
  • Choose a departure time that fits your busy schedule 
What to Expect
This New York City helicopter tour takes flight from the Linden Municipal Airport in New Jersey. Opt for shuttle service from Midtown Manhattan (additional cost) or make your own way to the airport via public transportation. Once you arrive at the airport, board your helicopter for your flight tour, and soar above the city. See NYC lit up at night, and listen as your guide tells you fun facts while passing the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, and Chrysler Building, as well as passing by the Brooklyn Bridge and NYC neighborhoods. After your helicopter flight, you can take the shuttle back to the train station to catch a train back to NYC (own expense) or continue to your next destination on your own.
