Hear the guide clearly via a Bluetooth speaker as you learn the inspiring stories behind these sights. Unveil the treasured and inspiring stories behind them. Follow your guide and listen with your own personal headset to ensure that you have a clear, uninterrupted experience. This closed-circuit connection makes the tour unique amidst the hustle and bustle of New York City. With such a wealth of ground to cover, it would be impossible to see it all in just over an hour, therefore each tour differs slightly from the next.
