After booking, call the tour company to reserve your preferred time. The tour leaves frequently from the Downtown Manhattan Heliport. Arrive with plenty of time prior to your flight, and be prepared to pay the heliport fee.
After boarding the helicopter, sit back and enjoy the panoramic views as your pilot (and guide) narrates the sights through your personal headset. Fly over the World Financial Center and whiz by the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings. See the MetLife Building and the Woolworth Building on the way over to the Hudson River, the Empire State Building, and Ellis Island.
See more sights in a few minutes than you could in a day of exploring by foot. With no lines or crowds, it’s a perfect option for those short on time.
After your whirlwind tour, land back at the heliport and be on your way to explore further.
