Full description
Discover the "City that Never Sleeps" with a live guide as you walk down streets and ride the subway to see the best that Manhattan has to offer. Meet your guide in Times Square, and look at the statue of the lyricist and composer George M. Cohan as you listen to the history of the square and hear how a horse trading market became the most famous intersection in the world. Then, explore New York’s Theater District, which for 100 years has been the center of the world for actors, playwrights, and artists from around the globe.  Visit Rockefeller Center, before strolling down 5th Avenue to window shop at some of the world's most expensive stores, such as Saks and Bergdorf Goodman. Stop to admire St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the New York Public Library, and the Chrysler Building, before stepping beneath the arching dome of Grand Central, where you’ll have lunch. After lunch, hop on the Subway like a true New Yorker, and head downtown to Wall Street, where you can rub the nose of the Wall Street Bull for good luck! Walk through the financial capital of the world en route to Battery Park, where the ferry awaits to take you around the Statue of Liberty. Return to Downtown Manhattan by ferry, and visit the 9/11 Memorial, site of the largest manmade fountains. Reflect on the events of 11 September 2001.

If you can only take one tour in New York, make it this one. Claire is an INCREDIBLE tour guide - knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She filled the day was a ton of information and a ton of fun. During the tour, you see all the highlights, ride the Staten Island Ferry and learn about the city's fascinating history. A perfect way to spend a day in the city!

One highlight after the other

The tour through New York with our guide Bobby Mittelstadt was a series of many highlights with excellent timing for enjoying the highlights. Each goal of the tour was adequately explained. At the prevailing 35 degrees there was enough time for drinking and eating breaks. Kurzweiler day trip that can be recommended to everyone without any compromises. We had an unforgettable day.

Every 1st-time-visitor should do this!

My husband and I decided that a walking tour around NYC would be great, because the HopOn/Off-Busses seemed always to be stuck in traffic - and it really was one of the best trips we did in NY. Richard was a very knowledged and nice tour guide and told us a lot about the sights we visited - we would recommend this tour to every 1st-time-visitor. The breaks were also long enough.
