$119 -- Ride in a Helicopter over New York City, Reg. $189

By Annie England
Fox News and Yahoo!Travel journalists recently took and recommend this tour, while Travelzoo users call it "amazing," "spectacular" and "an absolute must."

Why we love it

  • Soar over the NYC skyline, Statue of Liberty, Freedom Tower and Brooklyn Bridge
  • "The view from above truly is the best view of New York City" (Yahoo!Travel)
  • Fox News says it offers "breathtaking" views "you won't get anywhere else"
  • 4 stars and a Certificate of Excellence 2014 from TripAdvisor

Tel: 212-361-6060

What's included

  • For $119 (reg. $189) per person, set off on a 15-minute Liberty Tour and catch stunning views of the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge and downtown skyline, including the Freedom Tower
  • For $155 (reg. $256) per person, climb aboard a 19-minute Central Park Tour with views of the Empire State Building, Central Park, the Intrepid, Yankee Stadium and the George Washington Bridge
  • For $195 (reg. $345) per person, reserve a spot on a 25-minute Grand Helicopter Tour, a combination of both the Liberty and Central Park tours with views of uptown, midtown and downtown Manhattan
  • All three packages include a photo of the experience (or a $20 credit toward the purchase of a USB with photos) as well as a $30 per-person heliport fee
Travelzoo Tip: Think this is just for tourists? Jo Piazza from Yahoo!Travel admits, “I can be a bit of a jaded New Yorker….but, it’s hard to be cynical when the Freedom Tower is looming directly in front of you.”

Excellent Tour! Our guide was fantastic and we really had top notch service at such a reasonable price! The kids are already planning a return trip so they too can go on a helicopter tour.

The lady on the phone was not overly friendly but the service at the sight made up for it. I would definitely recommend NY Helicopter to anyone considering it. Although 15 minutes sounds short, it really is the perfect amount of time.

It was a great ride with beautiful sights. I've lived in NYC for a long time and seen all of the downtown sights but seeing them from the air is really cool.

Tip for tourists: If you don't know the geography of NYC, take a few minutes beforehand to study a map of the area and the landmarks over which you'll be flying. Because you may not be able to always hear the pilot pointing out the landmarks (due to communications with the tower, cross talk on the radio, etc.).
