Come explore New York, city of neighborhoods


New York is a city of neighborhoods, it derives its personality from hundreds of small communities whose cultures make them feel like cities of their own.

This full day tour is an excellent opportunity for a unique insight into these lesser-known neighborhoods.

We will travel on a private van, which makes it easy and efficient to get around the city's busy streets, to explore the vibrant communities of Orthodox Jews, Greeks, Italian-Americans, Caribbean peoples, Indian and Middle-Easterners and many more.

These diverse groups form the social and economic fabric of New York City, creating a melting pot of cultural, religious, and culinary traditions.

Itinerary

On this 6 hour tour we will leave Manhattan behind and uncover the beautiful cultural diversity of its surrounding boroughs and neighborhoods. With your guide you will explore the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn visiting some of their most known (and unknown) neighborhoods.

Heading north to the Bronx we will visit Wave Hill Gardens and Van Cortland Park and ride across the Grand Concourse to Arthur Avenue to explore what locals describe as "the real Little Italy. "

Then to Queens across the Whitestone Bridge to visit the neighborhoods of Flushing and Jackson Heights, Astoria and Long Island City. Next to Brooklyn, the most populous borough, where we will make a stop at Fortunato Brothers, one of the best pastry shops in NYC, for a gelato or a cappuccino. Here we'll visit Prospect Park and Park Slope on our way to Downtown Brooklyn to admire the most iconic skyline of NYC.
