Private tour of Lower Manhattan

Let me take you to this adventure that will take you through the narrow streets of Lower Manhattan, where you will encounter the sites that made New York City the capital of the United States for a brief period of time. You will discover the Dutch past of New York. We will become "insiders" in New York's Financial District, and finally, you will explore the symbolism in the 9/11 National Memorial, and you'll see the enormous reflecting pools, the largest man-made fountains, where you will hear stories of heroism during America's darkest day.
