Description

This award-winning NYC day bus tour includes stops at Central Park, Rockefeller Center, the 9/11 Memorial, as well as a harbor cruise with views of the Statue of Liberty, Ellis island, and more!

After a drive through the Times Square area, the first stop is at Central Park West and 72nd Street, at the Dakota Building (former home of John Lennon). The stop includes a short guided walk into Central Park to visit the Strawberry Fields with the Imagine mosaic dedicated to John Lennon, as well as the views of other sites in the area such as the luxury condominiums that numerous celebrities call home. We'll also drive by Central Park Zoo, the famous Plaza Hotel and Carnegie Hall.

The second stop on the tour is Rockefeller Center, for views of St. Patrick's Cathedral, the location of the ice skating rink and Christmas Tree, and NBC's Today Show set.

The third stop is Madison Square Park - the original location of Madison Square Garden Arena. This area provides spectacular views of dramatic architecture featured in numerous books and films.

The tour continues with a drive through some of the iconic NYC's neighborhoods, such as Greenwich Village, Soho, Chinatown, and the Financial District.

En route to the fourth stop, we drive by Wall Street for views of the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Hall (the location of the first Capitol Building of the United States), Trinity Church, and a drive-by the famous Charging Bull sculpture on Broadway.

The fourth stop is the World Trade Center, as we visit the 9/11 Memorial. The tour does not include entry into the 9/11 Museum, but visitors can walk the grounds of the Memorial, visit the waterfalls of “Reflecting Absence,” (the footprints of where the original twin towers stood), and see the Survivor Tree that stood up to the destruction of 9/11.

Around 1 pm, we'll stop for a quick lunch break at the Fulton 55 Market.

The fifth stop is at Pier 15 for the 2:30 pm Hornblower International Sightseeing Cruise to experience magnificent views of the Manhattan and Brooklyn skylines, iconic Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Williamsburg bridges, Governor's Island, Ellis Island, and a 360-degree turn in front of the Statue of Liberty for amazing photo opportunities! In off-season, between Jan 1 - Mar 31, in lieu of boat cruise, guests will visit Pier 17 for a photo opp of the Brooklyn Bridge and Robert F Wagner Park in Battery Park for views of the Statue of Liberty from Manhattan.

Rachel was an excellent tour guide. I felt like we were able to see so much of New York in this one tour. I would highly recommend it!

Was expecting to go on boat ride past liberty 🗽 which was why I booked this trip, but they don’t do this in winter time, very disappointed
