    What to Expect
    Your tour guide will meet you in the lobby of your Manhattan hotel at 9:00am.  Together, you will discuss your itinerary for the day and off you will go to enjoy your adventure.

    The guide will assist you with purchasing subway/bus passes and instructing you on their use.  The passes are not included in the cost of the tour (approximately $15 additional per person).

    The sights available for you to select for your tour itinerary include:  Central Park; Saint Patrick’s Cathedral; Rockefeller Center; Times Square; New York Public Library and Bryant Park; Grand Central Terminal; Madison Square Park for views of the Flat Iron and Empire State Buildings; High Line Park and Chelsea Market; Greenwich Village; SOHO; Chinatown; Little Italy; World Trade and 9/11 Memorial; Wall Street; Statue of Liberty from Shore and Brooklyn Bridge.  None of these sights require an admission fee.  On your 9-hour tour, allowing time for lunch (not included in the cost of the tour), you will be able to visit 11 of the above sights.  If you are interested in visiting all the sights as part of a tour, you can reserve this 9-hour tour for one day along with a 5-hour for a separate day or, perhaps, three 5-hour tours for three separate days

    You are welcome to prearrange with us before the day of your tour any Manhattan sights to include on your itinerary that are not listed above.

    At the end of the tour, your guide will take you to the Manhattan location of your choice - back to your hotel, a museum, store, etc.

    Our family of four (including our two daughters, 7 & 9) did a five hour tour by foot and subway. Our guide Tammy was fantastic. She took us everywhere on our list and more. She also knew where to get good food, which we could really appreciate. And we also took a couple breaks

    We booked this tour for our first day in New York. Tammi was great and took us to the places we wanted to see. She showed us how to use the subway and had lots of local knowledge. A great tour if you are short of time or want to get your New York bearings.

    Scott was excellent as tour guide. Engaging and informative. We chose a day which was cold, frosty and then fairly heavy snow but managed to cover an extensive area on our 9 hour tour. Recommended.

    We were only in New York for a short time, so this tour was perfect for us. Dina, our guide was amazing. I cannot believe what we accomplished in a few short hours including stopping for lunch. It was great, thanks again Dina. Will definitely use my new found Family in New York
