Tour Description

See New York City’s most popular sights and landmarks on this Engaging, Entertaining, Educational and Energetic Highlights tour! You will fall in love with NYC as our licensed tour guides share their passion for the City That Never Sleeps. Here is what we cover, by foot and subway on our most popular tour:

In four hours, your guide meets you at your hotel and you go on to see: Central Park & Strawberry Fields, The Dakota Apartments, the Upper West Side and Upper East Side. Then depending on the weather (and the traffic!), we can take a city bus down Fifth Avenue, passing Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the gorgeous shops of Fifth Ave. We hop off at the NY Public Library (from the movie Ghostbusters!) and head inside the beaux-arts beauty of Grand Central Terminal. Then a subway ride downtown to Battery Park where we discuss the birth of New York City. Walking tour to through Bowling Green Park and to the Charging Bull sculpture, Trinity Church, Wall Street & the Stock Exchange and the Federal Hall National Monument. There’s a solemn moment of reflection at the 911 Memorial and the World Trade Center Site. If time allows, we swing up to the Brooklyn Bridge and end in Chinatown or Little Italy.
