It is definitely one if the more expensive things to do in NYC but totally worth it. The helicopter ride was the highlight of my trip! It really is such an incredible experience.

Booking the helicopter tour

I booked my helicopter tour with Adrenaline, online in advance of my trip to New York. I choose the 15 minute ride which cost $159 for one person. This included the heliport and fuel fee which many others do not.

The heliport is located in downtown Manhattan at 6 E River Piers, between the South Street Seaport & the Staten Island Ferry.

I thought 15 minutes was enough time to see everything and enjoy the experience.

I wouldn’t be the biggest fan of heights but I’m so glad I got over my fear to do this. It wasn’t half as scary as I had anticipated!
