$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

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.”

First time taking Helicopter

If only the rides could be longer and cheaper, that would be great.

The entire process was very simple and easy. We showed up, checked in and had a great ride.

This is about New York Helicopter and not Travel Zoo. The ride itself was very beautiful but we heard more pilots talking about where they were (location, on way back, etc.) then we did about what we were actually seeing. That was the only part we didn't like.

I'm from the new York area and I had an opportunity to soar above the city like a tourist. Spectacular views of new York and new jersey, I absolutely will advise anyone who wishes to see the city to take the helicopter tour you won't regret it! Breathtaking!

First of all let me say the tour was not, I repeat not of Central Park....In fact you could hardly see Central Park from the distance... this was a bait and switch....the tour was around Manhattan from the heliport around lower Manhattan and up to the George Washington Bridge. It was just nice being in the copter and flying over the Hudson river and seeing the birds eyeview.
