What makes this tour special
Explore the Big Apple - from the bustling streets of Downtown Manhattan to the serenity of Central Park. On this private tour you will:
· See the best sights of Lower Manhattan, from the National 9/11 Memorial to St Paul’s Chapel · Walk around quirky, local Greenwich Village · Experience the bustle of Times Square · Enjoy the grandeur of St Patrick’s Cathedral · Stroll in both Grand Central Terminal and Central Park · Finish your tour gazing out on the city from the views from the Rockefeller Center
Your tour begins at the National 9/11 Memorial and visit Ground Zero— the original site of the The World Financial Center. Here your guide will share with you the history of the World Trade Center and discuss the tragic events of 9/11. You will also visit Saint Paul's Chapel, which was the base for rescue workers who heroically searched for survivors on that fateful day.
Next you will head towards trendy Greenwich Village, home to over a century's worth of bohemians, artists, musicians, novelists, poets and intellectuals of New York City. From here you will take the subway to Wall Street in lower Manhattan, arguably the most important financial center of the world. You will learn about some of the most important moments in US history, from the swearing in of George Washington as the first American President, to the signing of the Buttonwood Agreement—the foundation of the New York Stock Exchange.
You will also have the opportunity to explore the gothic architecture of Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, where writer F. Scott Fitzgerald was married. Then, you will walk to Grand Central Terminal, the most iconic transportation hub in the United States, with the beautiful celestial ceiling murals.
Your guide will take you to Times Square in the midtown area to view the news ticker on the One Times Square Building, the NASDAQ board, and all the fluorescent neon advertisements. You will then venture to another icon of NYC—the Rockefeller Center. Here, your guide will give you your tickets for the Rockefeller Observation deck and part with you. Cap off your tour with a breathtaking bird’s eye view of Manhattan and the rest of the Big Apple.
