Full description
Manhattan brings to mind grand skyscrapers, taxi cabs, and a world-class attitude all of its own. See all this and more as an expert pilot flies you over NYC by helicopter. After take off, swing down over lower Manhattan to see the skyline and streets below. Swoop over Battery Park for the chance to glance at Wall Street and its labyrinth of streets. Then sail over to Governor's Island, an island once reserved only for the dignitaries of the city that today hosts summer concerts and exceptional public art. Then, in the distance, see Lady Liberty shining brightly. Cruise right up to her eye for an entirely new perspective of the Statue of Liberty! Enjoy all this before heading up the Hudson past the piers of Chelsea, the lights of Broadway, and the playground of Central Park. On your way back to the pier, head around the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge, and finally fly over Ground Zero where you can have a look at the exceptional work they're doing at the sight. Flight Path: Your 15-minute flight departs the Downtown Heliport and flies past Governor’s Island, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island before continuing up the Hudson River. You will continue past Madison Square Garden and the Intrepid Air and Space Museum. At Central Park your flight turns around for the return to the heliport.

It was well worth the money, I booked this activity as a surprise birthday gift and it was much appreciated. It made the trip quite unforgettable and while seeing so many things from the bird perspective crosses off quite a few things such as taking a ferry to see the Statue of Liberty or going on a rooftop of say Freedom Tower. The audio quire wasn’t the language I had booked it in but thankfully we both understood English so it wasn’t too bad. Music which was played suited the ambiente and to finish the tour with Empire State of Mind by Alicia Keys was fantastically fitting. We arrived earlier than our scheduled time and they even managed to take us on an earlier flight. It’s a great activity I can only recommend doing it, it’s not an everyday thing to do so - give it a try. :)

Good experience

You can reach the Downtown Manhattan Heliport located at pier 6 about 30 'in advance, where after a passport and ticket check, a video in English of just a few minutes is shown regarding the security measures. At the set time you reach and board the helicopter. After take-off, one flies over Governors Island and the Statue of Liberty with excellent visibility for all 5 occupants on board as the pilot performs slow maneuvers, then the fortune to stay alongside the pilot or in the two pilot view seats that allow a better visibility over Manhattan until reaching the beginning of Central Park where the helicopter turns and returns to the base along the Hudson River. Next personal experience will be with helicopter without doors. Excellent experience.
