Book the Upper and Lower Manhattan Tour and set off on a 3.5-hour sightseeing tour of one of the world’s most influential cities and get a feel for its heart and soul.
Let the sights of New York unfold before you on a comfortable sightseeing bus that departs at 8:30am from the Sheraton Hotel on 811 7th Avenue 53rd Street.
Relax and enjoy the views of the bustling city while you are driven past Columbus Circle to the Lincoln Center Theatre and visit The Dakota, where John Lennon lived and was sadly shot dead. Then, walk to Strawberry Fields, in Central Park, that pays tribute to the late Beatles’ member.
Hop back on the bus and continue the journey to the Cathedral of St. John the Devine, the largest church in New York City and then admire Columbia University until you get to Harlem, one of the city’s most notorious neighborhoods. While you enjoy its unique landscape, learn about the area’s history.
Head back south to Central Park, where you’ll see the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and other famous buildings along the edge of New York’s most important green-lung.
Next, the bus will take you down Fifth Avenue (also known as the Millionaire Row) where the Apple store, the majestic Hotel Plaza, the Trump Tower and Tiffany & Co, filmed in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, are located.
The sightseeing bus will then head to the Rockefeller Center, St Patrick’s Cathedral, the Flat Iron Building (New York’s first skyscraper) and Greenwich Village, SoHo and NoHo districts. You’ll drive to Washington Square, where the Washington Square Arch stands, modeled on the Arc de Triomphe and you’ll also see the New York University.
Continue the sightseeing tour through Little Italy, Chinatown and the financial district including Wall Street, which houses the Federal Hall and the New York Stock Exchange.
The tour will come to an end in Battery Park, at the lower tip of Manhattan. From here, you’ll be able to admire the Statue of Liberty and we recommend taking the ferry to Staten Island.
