Know More about this tour

Your exuberant guide will start by showing you the historical sites that most visitors overlook in Lower Manhattan, including Bowling Green and Castile Clinton in Battery Park. Learn about Alexander Hamilton at Trinity Church before fast-forwarding to the last century, when the Charging Bull took up residence among the NYSE and Federal Hall. Modern architecture soars overhead, once in the shadows of the World Trade Center. Discuss the tragedy of 9/11 while visiting the official memorial as well as the firefighters memorial. Then learn how Lower Manhattan has evolved since, including the Occupy Wall Street movement that took over Zuccotti Park. By the end of the tour, youll understand more clearly how New York City has become one of the most important and inspiring metropolises in the world.

Then after a break for lunch, we travel north to Midtown and learn why its the City That Never Sleeps. Find out about the 19th and 20th century additions to Manhattan that helped shape the urban landscape. Explore the lesser-known Marble Collegiate Church and then visit icons like the New York Public Library and the Morgan Library. From Madison Square Park to the quirky Flatiron building, youll discover the earlier innovations that helped build New York up, quite literally. Your guide will discuss the skyscraper boom of the early 1900s, including the Met Life Tower and the New York Life Building. Youll walk by the world-famous Empire State Building to learn about the last of the early 20th century giants. It doesnt get much more beautiful than the main terminal of Grand Central Station, where youll learn about the landmark laws that preserve many of these historic buildings for generations to come.
