Full-day Private Tour of NYC Highlights
On this walking tour, we'll visit New York's most iconic sites in a single day.
In the morning, we tour highlights of Central Park, Fifth Avenue, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Rockefeller Center, the NY Public Library, the Chrysler Building and majestic Grand Central Terminal.
After a break for lunch, we continue to Lower Manhattan for views of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the Wall Street Bull, Wall Street, the World Trade Center and the September 11 Memorial.
Your tour is fully customized, so alternate sites can include: the Brooklyn Bridge, Greenwich Village, Chinatown and Little Italy, SoHo, the High Line, Harlem, or the Lower East Side.
My NYC expertise allows me to maximize our time, so we'll explore more sites than tourists typically see in a day. And you'll have a richer experience, hearing a local perspective and the fascinating stories behind the famed sites.
This private walking tour is a superb introduction to New York City and ideal for those looking to explore NYC more deeply.
