What makes this tour special

South of Central Park lies one of the world's most important cultural and business centers. With many of the city’s most famous sights, midtown Manhattan is one of the best places to experience the spirit of New York. On your fascinating Private Walking Tour of Manhattan, soak up its unique ambience, breathe in its frenetic pace, and seek out its unforgettable highlights. 

Conjure up images of New York City and it will be Manhattan: the ritzy, glitzy heart of the Big Apple jam-packed with big-name attractions. If there is a per-place limit on iconic landmarks, Manhattan  flouts the rules - squeezing Central Park, the Empire State Building, the Met and MoMA, Times Square’s 3,685-square-foot flashing LED screens and Broadway’s bright lights into 22.7 small square miles. 

Well known by actors and stage-junkies, New York’s dazzling Theater District has been part of Manhattan since the late 19th century and its rich history provides a glorious mix of greasepaint, star-spotting and backstage gossip. While in the bustle of Times Square, learn how it earned its name when the New York Times opened an office there and erected an electronic news ticker - “The Zipper'' - in 1928. Though the newspaper office has relocated, the area remains a media hotspot, serving as host and home to the likes of MTV and Condé Nast. Times Square is an icon, a Hollywood backdrop, and the heart of the Big Apple, and where there is proof - should you need it - that New York is the city that never sleeps. After a long stroll past New York’s Public Library, depart from your guide in front of the Empire State Building, where you will enjoy express tickets to the top of the Empire State Building to retrace your steps and gaze out upon the city that never sleeps.
