Full day New York City Tour

From spectacular skylines to crowded subways, this is the quintessential New York City experience. The city is a collection of islands and we depend on various means to reach them. This tour will give you a unique perspective on the city as we travel through the day utilizing ferries, subways and a walk across the fabled Brooklyn Bridge.



The adventure begins with a boat ride giving you superlative views of New York City. There is no better way to view this classic skyline than from the unique vantage point of our rivers. Back on land, we'll explore some of the lower Manhattan street scape, including a visit to the 9/11 memorial and the South Street Seaport area.
After another quick boat to historic Brooklyn, we will take a lunch break. Brooklyn is known to serve the best pizza in the world--and no New York experience is complete without it. (Other options are available)

We'll then work off those calories with a stroll across the famous Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan. Back in Manhattan we'll ride the subway and finish up at either Times Square or Rockefeller Center. Both the bridge and the subway are essential elements of navigating New York, and will give you insight into life as a New Yorker.

By the end of the day, you'll feel a little more connected to this formidably welcoming city.
