New York City, New York

The Basics

The bohemian West Village—which served as the backdrop for New York’s LGBTQ rights movement—manages to be both trendy and quaint, and the best way to explore it is on foot. Stop by the many boutiques and cafés; look for filming locations and historic town houses; or take a walk in lovely Hudson River Park, a waterfront expanse on Manhattan’s west side.

Most hop-on hop-off bus tours pass through the West Village. Foodies can opt for a culinary walking tour that hits neighborhood eateries, with tastings along the way. For something totally different, consider an exhilarating helicopter tour for panoramic views of the neighborhood.

Once in a life time experience

New York Helicopter Tour: City Lights Skyline Experience
We were running over half an hour late for our night time helicopter ride, however the team were incredibly accommodating and got us through the safety checks in a flash. Once we were up in the air the pilot was great at giving small amounts of info on New York and some of the sights and made everyone feel at ease! All in all the night time veiws were amazing and it was a magical part of our time in NYC, highly recommend!!

Fabulous Trip

New York Helicopter Tour: City Lights Skyline Experience
The staff were excellent, the helicopter was new and clean and the pilot was very informative. Great views of NYC. The airport is in NJ so its a bit of a trek via train and taxi to the airport, it then takes time to fly to NYC... However, the trip itself was great.

New York Helicopter Tour: City Lights Skyline Experience
This was an amazing and unforgettable experience from start to finish. The guys working there couldn’t be more awesome, kind and nice. The pilot was super great too, informative and very nice to hear and talk to. If you are thinking about this, don’t think it to much and do it! Special thanks to the guy (I’m sorry, I forgot your name) :(, who waited for us at night and helped us tremendously, we will never forget you, thank you so much! 10000/10 and even more :)

New York's West Village Food Tour
From start to finish, this food tour was delightful! Adam was a fantastic tour guide, and he provided us with super interesting information with his special New York flair! Every bite we took was fresh and delicious, and it was plentiful! Bleecker Street Pizza was the best we’d ever had, and the arancini at Faicco’s was my personal fave. We were stuffed by the end! So much fun…I highly recommend this tour!!

Nancy and Isaac worked together to take us all over NYC. We enjoyed seeing China town. It was like another country. Harlem was not what we expected but I'm glad we could see it. We would recommend the tour.

New York Helicopter Tour: City Lights Skyline Experience
We did the night flight at the end of our 3 week holiday at the eastcoast. It was far beyond spectacular. I fulfilled a childs dream with this flight. Its an experience worth every dollar. I want to mention here the extra ordinary friendly service of the team on the ground. Thanks for the ride to the train station, it was a night we will never forget !
