Highlights

  • Learn the history of New York in Lower Manhattan
  • Go to the Stone Street Historic District
  • See some of the Neo-Dutch colonial buildings of the early 20th century

Overview

Learn the history of New York City on a 2-hour guided walking tour of Downtown Manhattan, and explore the oldest neighborhood on Manhattan Island. See landmark monuments, such as Ground Zero and Wall Street, and peek inside peaceful Trinity Church.

Description

Discover some of the most historic neighborhoods of New York, a city so good they named it twice! The 2-hour walking tour takes in the origins of the city, from the days of the Dutch West India Company to the buzz of modern finance on today’s Wall Street.

As you walk, your guide will tell you how the first New Yorkers came from Holland, and how Wall Street really was once a wall. Even if you already know this stuff, you will want to take the tour to find out how much of Downtown New York is actually landfill, and how much forms the original New York.

See the new One World Trade Center building, which officially topped out in August 2012. Explore the Neo-Dutch colonial buildings of the Stone Street Historic District at the heart of Manhattan’s Financial District, and take a peek inside Trinity Church.

Very satisfied customers!

I booked this walking tour of Manhattan for my parents when they came to visit. They came back absolutely delighted. Apparently they were alone on the tour but the tour happened anyway and they were given a royal treatment from their guide Gary. My mother has swooned so much about Gary now, I'm almost tempted to take the tour simply to meet such a wonderful man!

Die Erläuterungen mit historischen Details und unterhaltsame Geschichten haben diese Tour zu einem wirklich schönen Erlebnis gemacht. Ich kann diese Tour jedem Downtown Besucher empfehlen.
