You’ll pass through the exclusive Malba neighborhood, with its many beautiful homes, and visit Flushing Meadows Park, home of the US Open (one of the oldest tennis championships in the world), as well as the New York Mets baseball team and the Unisphere (leftover from the 1964 World’s Fair). You will then proceed to visit the borough of Brooklyn, viewing the neighborhoods of Williamsburg and Crown Heights, home to one of the largest Hasidic Jewish communities outside of Israel, alongside a younger, gentrifying non-Jewish population. Afterward, you’ll head down to world-famous Coney Island, a destination for New Yorkers for generations, seeking fun and relaxation. Weather permitting, you’ll have an opportunity to explore the boardwalk, and to have lunch at the original, legendary Nathan’s restaurant. Finally, you’ll head back over the East River, passing by the historic Brooklyn Bridge, on your return into Manhattan.

It is very worth it. They take you to places that you might not go on your own (Bronx, Harlem...), and in a few hours you get a general idea of the characteristics of the different neighborhoods/boroughs of NYC, being able to walk through each of them. they. Our guide in Spanish, Millie, gave some very interesting explanations, with a social background that is not usual in the tourist field; much appreciated. We are delighted.

It was a rainy windy day but Kevin and Emmanuel brought their own sunshine. Emmanuel is very knowledgeable and an unbelievable resource. Kevin handles a 50 passenger bus like it was a mini van. The dynamic duo entertained and enlightened us all day. If the weather was nicer we would have ventured out more but we definitely got our moneys worth regardless. We’ll be back.

This trip was super exciting, Millie was not only knowledgeable about the places we visited but also passionate about what she was doing that made us enjoyed the tour with her. For Indonesian: BAGUS BGT TOUR nya!!!!

Trip was very interesting and worthwhile to attend. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and talkative in the Spanish language. We really enjoyed it and the scenery was spectacular.
