Full description
Discover the "City that Never Sleeps" with a live guide as you walk down streets and ride the subway to see the best that Manhattan has to offer.

Meet your guide in Times Square, and look at the statue of the lyricist and composer George M. Cohan as you listen to the history of the square and hear how a horse trading market became the most famous intersection in the world. Then, explore New York’s Theater District, which for 100 years has been the center of the world for actors, playwrights, and artists from around the globe. 

Visit Rockefeller Center, before strolling down 5th Avenue to window shop at some of the world's most expensive stores, such as Saks and Bergdorf Goodman. Stop to admire St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the New York Public Library, and the Chrysler Building, before stepping beneath the arching dome of Grand Central, where you’ll have lunch.

After lunch, hop on the Subway like a true New Yorker, and head downtown to Wall Street, where you can rub the nose of the Wall Street Bull for good luck! Walk through the financial capital of the world en route to Battery Park, where the ferry awaits to take you around the Statue of Liberty. Return to Downtown Manhattan by ferry, and visit the 9/11 Memorial, site of the largest manmade fountains. Reflect on the events of 11 September 2001.

Every 1st-time-visitor should do this!

My husband and I decided that a walking tour around NYC would be great, because the HopOn/Off-Busses seemed always to be stuck in traffic - and it really was one of the best trips we did in NY. Richard was a very knowledged and nice tour guide and told us a lot about the sights we visited - we would recommend this tour to every 1st-time-visitor. The breaks were also long enough.

What a great tour, if Jenn is your tour guide

A must do tour with a tour guide like Jenn ! With her knowledge and humor she made it a relaxed day, although you walked a lot, but time passed by so fast. And you got an absolutely wonderful impression of one of the most fascinating cities in this world. Two thumbs up ! Thanks and if I come back which I will, I'm gonna book this tour again with Jenn as my tour guide.
