Full description
Your tour begins on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, near the extravagant Plaza Hotel, which has hosted New York’s elite visitors for over 100 years. A short jaunt away is magnificent Central Park, a green oasis within the concrete jungle of New York. Travel through the park and visit the Strawberry Fields for a Beatles sing-along. Explore a few off-the-beaten-path sites, rarely seen by tourists, including the only beach in Manhattan, a 3500-year-old obelisk, and an $18-million lawn.

From Central Park, you’ll ride up to Harlem, one of the most important places for black history in America. You’ll attend a Sunday morning gospel service, replete with lush choral music, before heading to a poetry reading outside of what was once Langston Hughes’ home. After a lunch of delicious soul food, you’ll visit a former synagogue that has been converted to a church — emblematic of the constant, fluid changes of the Big Apple.

Great tour! Affected with the guide Richard!

Upon arrival of the bicycle rental company it was incredibly chaotic and they were not too friendly inside. When we were assigned our cycling tour guide Richard, I first thought, onee he cycle in a line behind him and as if we don't know how to cycle, that's how it came about, but as you see first impression does not say everything, it was a beautiful tour. He has told a lot. Not just historical things but also about normal things nowadays. Very interesting!
