Overview
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. This adventure is a shared experience with other travelers.

Really great experience. View to kill for. Personnel was very friendly caring. They confirm arrangements beforehand and stick to it. No ifs and buts !! A bit far out from central Manhattan , but a 35 min trainride and complimentary shuttle , make up for that.

Literally the worst experience ever. Ruined my entire birthday and all of my plans. I made a reservation days in advanced with HeliNY (the company providing the tours) and was told on multiple occasions my reservation was confirmed. I provided the company my GoCity Pass number

Hi Izanagi, As we explained on Friday we are only included on the Build Your Own version of the Explorer Pass. You had not purchased this version of the pass and had not actually paid for a helicopter tour. During the reservation process you advised us that you had the Build Your Own Pass and had selected this product which is why we had confirmed your reservation. I apologize that this misunderstanding caused you so much inconvenience. As you mentioned we did offer you to take the tour at a discounted rate however we were unable to reach an agreement on site. We are following up with the Explorer Pass to have any confusing wording removed from their website and to try and work towards a better verification system than just on-site scanning.
