A New York helicopter tour is a one in a lifetime experience and one of the most enticing tours in the city. You’ll enjoy amazing and unforgettable views over Manhattan and its most iconic landmarks.

Journey

There are two tours available: one is 15-minutes long and the other is 20-minutes long.

15-minute tour

Enjoy breath-taking views over the Hudson River during this tour as it flies over the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island and Manhattan’s financial district.

The tour includes incredible views of the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the USS Intrepid, the George Washington Bridge or the immense Central Park. There is so much to see that you won’t know where to look and you’ll wish you could stay in the air forever. 

20-minute tour

The longer tour continues north until you get to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Columbia University and Palisades Park in New Jersey (the famous cliffs that lead to the Hudson River).

At the very end of the tour, you’ll fly over the incredible Yankees Stadium.

Important information

You’ll be asked to choose a time for the tour when you book the helicopter ride. We warn you that the time might be modified, although we will try our best to maintain it. In case the time slot has already been booked, we will chose the closest available time and will send you an email confirming the changes.

The helicopter has a capacity for 5 or 6 guests as well as the pilot. 

Helicopter night journey

If you prefer, you can take a helicopter ride of New York City at nighttime. The ride will be similar and you will enjoy unparalled views of the city's most emblematic sights beautifully lit up.
