Two four hour days where we'll see all the major highlights of NYC

Actually this tour is a total of 8 hours spread over two days. So we can parse that out as you like it. We can do 3 hours one day & 5 hours the next or vice versa. One day we'll do uptown & Midtown Manhattan, Central Park, Harlem, The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Rockefeller Center and Grand Central Terminal. The other day, we'll go downtown and view the famous Flatiron Building, Greenwich Village, NYC's Chinatown & Little Italy, the Financial District, The Statue of Liberty and the 9/11 Memorial. We'll use NYC's great mass transit system to visit many of New York's coolest sights and ethnically diverse neighborhoods.

What’s Included

My service and expertise as a Licensed New York City tour guide and a free souvenir!

Estimated Local Cash Needed

50 USD - It is a good idea to have some cash on hand for items or purchases of a personal nature. There are ATMs everywhere so cash is not urgently necessary.

What’s Extra

your metro card to get around on subways & buses. I'll advise what type & denomination metro card you should acquire depending on the length of your stay.

A Recent Review of this tour

Matthew was a fountain of interesting information! We enjoyed seeing NYC through the eyes of someone who knew the history, back stories, and trivia behind the magnificent buildings and other significant landmarks. It is these stories that make you appreciate the sights that this city has to offer.
