In depth look at the great places and neighbourhoods with a private guide

This tour is a great way to see some of the classic sites and neighborhoods of the city. While I suggest the listed itinerary, which are some of the city's most famous highlights, I am happy to adjusting the schedule to your particular interests. In either case we'll be mostly walking and using the subway to get from one neighborhood to the next. If necessary we can also take a cab. There can be surprises around every second corner here, so be prepared for a full and lively experience.

We start midtown, and I can either meet you at your hotel or on site. It's your call. Among other things we'l tour Rockefeller Center, TImes Square and Grand Central Station.

From there we take the subway down to Chinatown for lunch! After eating the tour continues through the downtown neighborhoods of Chinatown, Little Italy, Soho and Greenwich Village.

We proceed to Lower Manhattan, where we'll view Ground Zero, the Wall Street
Bowling Green and Battery Park for a discussion of the Statue of Liberty.

A Recent Review of this tour

What a perfect first day in NYC. Rob was on time and provided good information on our transportation needs in town. Rob is a walking encycliopedia when it comes to NY and American history and could answer all our questions related to what we saw and where he brought us. Rob opened doors and entered buildings we would never have visited on our own. We felt like beeing with a family member. With a good sense of humour numerous good stories were given to us on our way. Rob is perfect in his job- what a day !
