Know More about this tour

A private guide and separate driver pick you up at your hotel - 1st stop - Times Square - Crossroads to the world - learn the the story behind the electric neon lights of our city and grab some awesome photos at the Broadway Theater District, before checking out the Rockefeller Center - NBC Headquarters and a cruise down Fifth Avenue - look out for Tiffany's, Apple Store, Plaza Hotel (Home Alone 2) and of course the now iconic Trump Tower. It is then all aboard at the terminus of New York - Grand Central Station - the largest station in the world and also described as "the loveliest station in the world" - laced with history and human stories of hope, aspiration and migration - the American dream breathes here - next, after showing you the Empire State and Public Library, we will head into Central Park - the most famous park in the land and visit the Bathesda fountain - the quintessential NYC movie location spot - synonymous with Sex in The City, Woody Allen movies and countless other shows that you will recognize.

Continuing down to the Lower East Side for an insight into the immigrants that make up the kaleidoscope of our city. Feast your way through the story of New Yorkers. Explore the Jewish area to try some delicious hot bagels and  Kosher dill pickles - then Little Italy - where the street art tells more of life than the guide can, it speaks to a young generation but the lessons are old. Taste amazing cannoli, learn about the mafia and gang wars before continuing into Chinatown where you can haggle with the traders for a gem and experience Chinese style beef jerky, delicious dim sums and lambutan. The food reflects the stories of the communities that you encounter and you will learn how they have interacted with each other, the tragedy and the dream and how they have combined to make the melting pot of the most multicultural city on earth.

After lunch - Greenwich Village - see the building from Friends, NYU, Washington Square Arch, check out a hidden speakeasy, see some artist hovels next to Billionaire's row! 

Then we go downtown to Wall Street for a photo with the Bull before stopping at the 9/11 Ground Zero Memorial for a hauntingly powerful stop. Next a quick photo snap with the Statue of Liberty across the water before heading over the Manhattan Bridge into old Brooklyn - the Brooklyn of Walt Whitman and prohibitionism. Behold the oldest and largest borough in New York. We will check out the Tech and Dumbo areas, the 200 year old Brownstone houses, share the rich history, see an art library with walls lined with thousands of sketchbooks, before maybe trying some famous Brooklyn pizza and cruising over the Brooklyn Bridge with a stop at the UN on the way back to your hotel.

As this is a private tour, you can alter the above and tailor the tour on the day with your guide and driver.

  • We had our own guide and driver. This meant no waiting around for transport as the car was always ready to pick us up. Our group varied from 13 years old to 80 and our guide, Katie who was super awesome!, paced the day brilliantly. We covered a lot of the main tourist sites and I would recommend this tour as a taster of what New York has on offer. Talking of tasters, we stopped for brisket for lunch and then Cannoli in Little Italy on Katies recommendation, which were delicious and fun. Our guide had excellent knowledge and gave us all a great tour. FYI - if you are a confident driver and think you can self drive a tour around central New York - you can't! Take the tour.

  • Our Tour Guide was fantastic. He knew more than NY natives who have lived and worked in the City all their lives. We learned so much - really got more than we paid for. Ask for Ramon, the 6ft tall Guatemalan! Speaks 4 languages and is a student of anthropology and archaeology and World History. You can ask him anything and he is also a foodie so get restaurant recs from him too!
