  • Important Information

Meet your guide in Midtown Manhattan and drive through Times Square, continuing to St Patrick’s Cathedral and Rockefeller Center to see NBC Studios and Radio City Music Hall.

The tour continues on Fifth Avenue to Madison Square Park, with great photo ops of the Empire State Building and Flatiron Building.

Next, visit the 9/11 Memorial and Trinity Church, the historic church where many people took refuge as the World Trade Center collapsed during the 9/11 attacks.

Then venture to the South Street Seaport, a historic district with some of the oldest architecture in downtown Manhattan and the site of New York City’s original port. From Pier 17, board a 1-hour luxury boat cruise that offers spectacular views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Manhattan and New Jersey skylines, Governor’s Island and the Brooklyn Bridge. Enjoy lively narration as you cruise around New York Harbor.

After the cruise you will continue uptown to Central Park. Pass by Columbus Circle, Lincoln Center and the Dakota, the apartment building where John Lennon lived, then walk across the street into Central Park to visit the Strawberry Fields memorial to him.

Your experienced guide shares informative commentary throughout the day as you hop off the bus to see the sights and get great photos. At the end of this comprehensive 5-hour New York City tour, your guide returns you to your starting point in Midtown.

    Bernice was a hoot! We had a great time and she kept our teenage boys engaged. This is a very comprehensive tour and you will see many, many sights. There are a number of stops where you get out for photo opportunities - be aware that to take advantage of them requires you to pay attention and use them quickly or they'll slip away as many did for us. When you get out of the bus, you're in the flow of the normal crowds, Bernice does her best to guide you and show you where to go and where to be but really pay attention if you want those great photos. We had about 20 minutes at the 911 memorial on our own, if you don't have a specific plan your time can really get away from you. It's really a place for it's own tour. See the Oculus, the memorial, and most of the all the museum, it is breathtaking.
    The water taxi tour is much more laid back and things don't come and go so quickly but be aware that depending on the water conditions, you may not be able to stand up and get that photo you want so plan ahead and take many. We had a great time and enjoyed Bernice.
