Full description
Discover Midtown Manhattan including Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Terminal, and more. Explore it with expert guides who will give you the inside scoop on all the major sights. Start the tour at Grand Central Terminal, the most historical transportation hub in the USA. Explore the massive building and its incredible architecture. Take a hidden passage out to the street to avoid the crowds at the entrance — talk about a true secret insider’s tip!

Afterward, head out through the skyscrapers of Midtown and uncover some short cuts, tunnels, and a few hyper-local spots for dining and shopping - places you definitely wouldn't have found on your own! The neighborhood might be filled with tourists and chain restaurants, but your guide will help you discover the hidden local faves. 

Of course, no tour of Midtown would be complete without seeing the bright lights of Broadway. Stand right in the center of Times Square surrounded by flashing billboards, giant TV screens, and dozens of Broadway theaters, right in the midst of it all. While you’re soaking it all in, learn about the evolution of Broadway and how theater transformed Times Square from the middle of nowhere to one of the most famous destinations in the world. Plus, get tips for snagging discount theater tickets, seeing favorite shows, as well as where to catch great off-Broadway shows.

Finally, end the tour with a classic tasting of the best slice of New York pizza in the neighborhood and a visit to a local market for dessert. By the end of this tour, you’ll have some amazing photos in front of iconic buildings and landmarks, an insider’s local knowledge of the food and drinks scene, and the scoop on where to get discount theater tickets and catch great shows around the city.
