Both tours include flying over historic Westchester landmarks such as the Tarrytown castles, Tappan Zee Bridge and Hudson Palisades.

Roundtrip hotel transfers are available between Manhattan and Westchester for additional fee. If selected, our driver will collect you from your hotel or residence anywhere in Manhattan, wait while you’re flying and drive you back to Manhattan as well.
