Exploring our wonderful city might be difficult, but the best way to see it is to travel like a genuine New Yorker – by train, boat, and foot. This one-day New York trip covers all of the city’s most fantastic attractions on a smart schedule that is detailed but never hurried. In a single day, see New York!
Begin at Times Square and discover how it came to be known as the Entertainment Capital of the World. You’ll visit Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, the New York Public Library, the Chrysler Building’s gleaming steel tower, Rockefeller Center, and much more as your experienced guide leads the way. A voyage on the Staten Island Ferry will even allow you to see the Statue of Liberty. This is also a fantastic way to take in the New York City skyline.
On your route to the subway, descend beneath the tiling caves of Grand Central Terminal and stop by Whispering Corners. You’ll get an insider’s perspective of the Financial District and a photo with the Charging Bull on Wall Street. We’ll also take a moment to pay respects at the 9/11 Memorial, which is both gorgeous and moving.
End your one-day New York trip at the One World Trade Center if you’ve chosen the upgrade. Before riding the SkyPod elevator up 1,250 feet to witness a time-lapse of NYC over the decades, you’ll see the “Voices” video in the Freedom Tower lobby. The See Forever Theater is located on the 102nd story of the One World Observatory, while the main observation deck is located on the 100th floor. Take in the breathtaking view of Manhattan as you toast the success of a fantastic day in the Big Apple.

We saw so many iconic sights throughout the tour but it was Samuel that brought the history and meaning of each one to life... This is a must do tour if it is your first time to New York and even if you've been multiple times you will learn something new.Ashleigh
We meet in front of the George M. Cohan Statue at 46th Street and Broadway. The statue is of a man holding a hat and a cane.
Certainly not! We travel like New Yorkers to get a genuine, immersive view of the city. We would never advise our relatives or friends to visit NYC by vehicle or bus. You don’t want to waste time stuck in traffic. We’ll walk, use the metro, and take the ferry to see and do more.
Because this is a walking tour, most of the day will be spent on foot. However, you will travel by metro and boat at times throughout the journey. This trip requires a significant amount of walking and is inaccessible to wheelchairs due to the subway system. If mobility is an issue, you can also book a private tour.
We won’t be able to visit the 9/11 Museum or Liberty Island due to time constraints. The trip includes stops at the 911 Memorial and the World Trade Center, where your guide will tell you about the events of 9/11. We’ll also ride the Staten Island Ferry to get a closer look at Lady Liberty and take in vistas of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge.
We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.
Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get a full refund.
Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
