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.

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 Gro...

    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. :)

You’ll head up the Hudson river, continuing up the west side, and cruising past the piers in Chelsea, past the USS Intrepid and its awesome array of military planes, and then up to Central Park, the playground for New Yorkers. On the way down the other side of the island, you'll have a jaw-dropping view of the Empire State Building and the iconic Brooklyn Bridge. You’ll fly over Ground Zero where you can have a birds-eye view of the awesome construction taking place, with a tower now over 80 stories tall!
