Description

Do you know why they call NYC the Big Apple? Or how tall is the Empire State Building? Book our 2-6-hour private tour to learn this as you explore central New York with an avid Local Guide and immerse yourself in local history and urban legends. Experience the magic and undeniable allure of the City That Never Sleeps! Our 2-hour tour is a short but comprehensive introduction to New York City. We'll start near the Empire State Building, one of the world’s most recognizable structures, and continue through Broadway,an entertainment hub known for its American theaters. Get ready to be dazzled by the neon lights and larger-than-life billboards of Times Square and enjoy the bustling energy of ''The Crossroads of the World.'' Each step will be an opportunity to learn the fascinating history of this city, from its foundation during the colonial era, through the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, to the present day. You will also hear urban legends and unbelievable stories about the people associated with NYC, from Hollywood celebrities to former President Trump. The tour will end in Columbus Circle, at the gates of Central Park. Book a 3-hour tour to find out why Central Park is almost every New Yorker's favorite spot. Continue your guided exploration of NYC deep into this vast urban oasis, surrounded by towering skyscrapers, a variety of green trees, and numerous monuments. The guide will lead you through the Sheep Meadow and the tree-lined Mall and Literary Walk to a scenic lakeside spot of Bethesda Terrace. Book an extended 4-hour tour to discover more of New York from the top deck of the Empire State Building (ESB)! This option includes fast track tickets to the 102nd and 86th floor observation decks of the World's Most Famous Building, so you can skip the line to the ticket office. ESB features the only 360 degree open-air vantage point of Midtown so you won't find a better bird’s eye view of the city! Discover the jewel of NYC! Book a 6-hour guided tour to discover the best of New York, including Central Square, Empire State Building and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met). The Met on 5th Avenue is NYC’s most visited museum so we provide skip-the-line tickets to save time.
