UPTOWN-DOWNTOWN, TOURING ALL AROUND
Where do you start? Just arrived, many plans have been made from home, you are HERE! But we know how to be sure you see everything. We’ll guide and inform and then say, Have Great Day! as you venture out. An ideal first-choice are the hop-on/hop-off coach tours, for all-day or half day itineraries. Catch the rhythm of New Yorkers, be sure to look up and wonder at the stunning architecture and sculpture of the 19th and early 20th century, all juxtaposed against the glass and steel of the 21st century.
From the Battery at the southern tip, to the high cliffs of North Manhattan/Inwood, our island is a geological phenomenon. And…be sure to include a night tour–when Times Square and Rockefeller Center, our bridges–everywhere, lights dance, digital screens amaze. fountains sparkle.
GUIDED CITY AND BOROUGHS TOURING
Excellent hop-on, hop-off tours and cover all of Manhattan island. Some tours cover three days and are ideal for the traveler with limited time and, “Wants to See It All!” Specialized tours will take you to the outer boroughs, now blossoming with sculpture, ethnic neighborhoods and their culture, rebirth, funkiness–just about everything. Spend as much time as you like at each stop, then just await the next arrival for hop-on. Night tours are rather amazing, as New York City is a magic, illuminated wonder.
These recommended companies are the largest and most experienced.
New York’s skyline is stunning in daylight, just breathtaking illuminated against the night sky (even in the rain!) Every type of public boat can be selected for a Harbor Cruise. Why not dine and dance at night as you sail? Some cruises are seasonal, others sail throughout the year.
These are highly recommended companies. You might even select and enjoy a cruise going north and beyond New York’s city limits.
Seasonal along the full Downtown harbor. Just wonderful! Late April to November.
