Explore the city like a local with this New York tour by subway and bus. You'll journey through the crowded streets with your private guide as you make your way to popular sights, local attractions and historic landmarks. See iconic neighborhoods, travel back in time and learn how to navigate one of the largest public transit systems in the world on this tour. Choose between a half- or full-day tour.
What to Expect
Your tour guide will meet you in the lobby of your Manhattan hotel at 9:00am.  Together, you will discuss your itinerary for the day and off you will go to enjoy your adventure.

The guide will assist you with purchasing subway/bus passes and instructing you on their use.  The passes are not included in the cost of the tour (approximately $15 additional per person).

The sights available for you to select for your tour itinerary include:  Central Park; Saint Patrick’s Cathedral; Rockefeller Center; Times Square; New York Public Library and Bryant Park; Grand Central Terminal; Madison Square Park for views of the Flat Iron and Empire State Buildings; High Line Park and Chelsea Market; Greenwich Village; SOHO; Chinatown; Little Italy; World Trade and 9/11 Memorial; Wall Street; Statue of Liberty from Shore and Brooklyn Bridge.  None of these sights require an admission fee.  On your 9-hour tour, allowing time for lunch (not included in the cost of the tour), you will be able to visit 11 of the above sights.  If you are interested in visiting all the sights as part of a tour, you can reserve this 9-hour tour for one day along with a 5-hour for a separate day or, perhaps, three 5-hour tours for three separate days

You are welcome to prearrange with us before the day of your tour any Manhattan sights to include on your itinerary that are not listed above.

At the end of the tour, your guide will take you to the Manhattan location of your choice - back to your hotel, a museum, store, etc.

Great tour for a family

Tour was a fantastic way to find the places and stories that you would not normally discover. Unfortunately expensive to alter date due to snow storm delays with travel.
