New York Helicopter Tour: City Lights Skyline Experience
From US$244.00
Overview
It’s almost impossible to see New York City’s main sights all in one day—let alone in one night. This NYC night helicopter tour packs in aerial views of the Statue of Liberty and other top attractions without making you wait in multiple lines back on the ground. Plus, the heliport fees and fuel surcharge are included, so there are no big surprises on the day of your tour.
What to Expect
This New York City helicopter tour takes flight from the Linden Municipal Airport in New Jersey. If you’re coming from NYC, just hop on the train at Penn Station and ride to Linden NJ Train Station (own expense). There’s a shuttle that will take you from the train station in Linden to the airport.
Once you arrive at the airport, board your helicopter for your flight tour, and soar above the city. See NYC lit up at night, and listen as your guide tells you fun facts while passing the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, and Chrysler Building, as well as passing by the Brooklyn Bridge and NYC neighborhoods.
After your helicopter flight, you can take the shuttle back to the train station to catch a train back to NYC (own expense) or continue to your next destination on your own.

Hi Michael, We always recommend voicing your issues while at the heliport so we can try to resolve them if possible. Due to the lighting at Linden Airport it is difficult to take clear pictures before your flight. This is why we don't offer this...More

Night flight about 20 mins plus. Really worth the price. We still talk about it.
