NYC: Empire State, Statue of Liberty & High Line
From $149 per personBook now
- See the Statue of Liberty as so many early immigrants to the city saw it
- Use your priority access tickets to go straight to the top of the Empire State Building
- Take a tour of the 9/11 Memorial to learn about one of the darkest chapters in NYC history
The first stop is at the 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Center, where you’ll learn about a dark day in New York City’s history, but also about how the city was rebuilt and came back even stronger. Then it’s off to the Financial District to see iconic Wall Street and learn about the highs and lows of life on the New York Stock Exchange.
Head to Battery Park to catch your New York Water Taxi for a harbor cruise. With your guide on hand to point out the sights, you’ll get the same views of New York as many early immigrants did as they sailed in from the Old World. This is without a doubt the best way to see the Brooklyn Bridge and the Statue of Liberty up close while listening to the incredible stories behind them.
At the end of your cruise it will be time for a tour of Greenwich Village, one of NYC’s most popular neighborhoods. Stop by well-known sites, such as Carrie’s house from Sex and the City, explore the uber-hip Meatpacking District, and finally stop for lunch at the foodie paradise, Chelsea Market. The cost of lunch is not included in the tour, so what you eat is your choice and your guide will provide recommendations.
Next, your guide will lead you to the High Line, NYC’s new favorite hangout. Take a walk along this beautiful, elevated park that was built on raised railway lines. Enjoy stunning views of the city and some of the best people watching anywhere.
Descending at 34th street, you’ll find yourself close to the Empire State Building, the city’s best-known skyscraper. With your pre-reserved priority pass, you’ll skip most of the lines here and head up to the Observation Deck on the 86th floor.
You’ll enjoy this part of your tour alone, as your guide will leave you at the entrance to the Empire State Building. Spend as much time as you like looking out over the city, soaking up this bird’s eye view of all the sights you have come across during your tour.
