Full description
Meet your private local guide and venture to Central Park, the heart and soul of New York City. Afterwards, get your art fix at one of five museums near the park: the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Neue Galerie, Cooper Hewitt or the Museum of Modern Art (optional). Next, your tour will continue on to the Rockefeller Center, America’s first multiuse shopping, entertainment and office space. You’ll have a great opportunity to enjoy stunning views of the city’s brilliant skyline from the spectacular open-air observation deck. You’ll pass by the prominent Grand Terminal, one of the city’s Beaux Arts-style architectural landmarks and see the glitzy Times Square. You’ll learn to eat like a local and try a very local slice of New York-style pizza. End your afternoon strolling down Broadway, the heart of the American theater industry and explore the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, the former site of the World Trade Center where the tragic events in 2001 took place. Get incredible views of the Manhattan skyline from the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most iconic bridges on the planet. See the East River and recharge at a popular Stumptown cafe. Your guide will recommend you good bakeries to try after the tour as well. You will finish the tour at One World Observatory, the highest observation deck in the US. If you like, you can extend your journey to visit the Statue of Liberty (to be discussed with the guide on the tour).
