Full description
Take an alternative tour of New York and head to the boroughs of the Bronx, Queens, and Brooklyn to discover the secret delights of New York City. This half-day tour is an excellent opportunity for a unique insight into these lesser-known neighborhoods. Mini-bus transportation makes it easy and efficient to get around the city’s busy streets. Aboard the bus you will cross Grand Central’s bridge, with a view of Grand Central Station, continue to the Upper East Side, one of the most affluent and elegant neighborhoods in New York City then enter Spanish Harlem on the way to the Bronx. You will see Yankee Stadium, the home ballpark of the New York Yankees baseball team, the Grand Concourse, and pass in front of the Bronx Museum of the Arts. You will stop at Arthur Avenue in The Bronx, where you'll have an authentic Italian-American experience. Visit genuine Italian restaurants, delis, bakeries, cafes and shops. Next, pass by Randall’s Island and through Queens. Finally reach Brooklyn, seeing Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Lastly, return to Manhattan through the legendary Brooklyn Bridge.

Loved the private 4.5 hour tour. Had a total of 7 ppl, including 3 children: ages 8 and twins that are 2. Our guide (Ouli) gave us a history lesson, geography lesson, and insight from a local. Great information. Loved being able to get off the bus multiple times to take photos. Only negative was that the company gave no instruction on how to tip the guide and the driver. Overall a great tour for the money.

Interesting half-day tour through the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn districts. Due to different tour operators that offer the tour on GYG, the actual locations that one sees May vary. Our tour did not bring us to Flushing Meadows Park, but we saw other nice locations and impressive views of Manhattan over the East River. I recommend the tour.

Our tour guide Erika explained a lot to us, we always had time to look around the individual quarters on foot and the small group size of 4 people plus guide and driver made everything very personal. We saw a different New York, got away from the main attractions and learned a lot. Was good!
