Full description

After meeting up with your guide, you will venture out of Manhattan and into the Bronx to admire Yankee Stadium, home of the New York Yankees. You will then continue through the Bronx streets, filled with graffiti and artistic murals where you will learn more about the famous street art and its history. Following the Bronx, enter Queens and stop at the Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, where the NY Mets baseball stadium "Citi Field" is located. Pass the National Tennis Center where the U.S. Open tennis matches occur, as well as the "Uni-Sphere," which appeared in the movie "Men in Black." Continue the tour in Brooklyn. Arrive at the Brooklyn Waterfront, which will provide you with an amazing panorama of Manhattan’s world-famous skyline and local restaurants to grab a bite to eat.

Before the end of the tour, the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg is on the agenda. This neighborhood is home to the largest concentration of Hasidic Jews in New York.

We - my granddaughter and I - did this tour on April 20th, 2022 and are extremely enthusiastic. The team of bus driver and tour guide were great. She kept telling stories, but always informative and really interesting! You should have done this tour through the 4 areas of New York to get a better impression of the city.

Very good tour. Got to see loads of new york that you wouldn't get to see by yourself. The tour guide millie was very good, she had a lot of knowledge and info that was very interesting. Finishing up then in little Italy was good as we could explore there and Chinatown as we made our way back home. Would highly recommend doing this tour
