New York City by Helicopter
See New York's famous landmarks from the air on an exhilarating 15-minute helicopter tour. You'll come face-to-face with the Statue of Liberty as you fly above the Hudson River. Admire the iconic Empire State Building, the silver Art Deco brilliance of the Chrysler Building, and the sprawling green expanse of Central Park. A must for any visitor to New York City!
Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
I love that you don't have to be on Rockefeller to enjoy sensational views of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan from the air and the 15-minutes seems a lot longer when you're marveling at the city below. It's a great value and sure to be to the highlight of your time in the Big Apple.
