Manhattan is an island. It is 12.5 miles long and 2 miles wide covering nearly 24 square miles. This Tour basically includes Manhattan from Harlem to Wall Street.
A TOUR DESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND
This Tour is usually a 6-7 Hour Tour, depending on how many stops you desire to make. This is a combination of the 'LOWER MANHATTAN' AND 'UPPER MANHATTAN’ TOURS. All our Tours are Specifically Designed for you! No two Tours are alike as all our Guests have different interests. If you wish to have lunch while on Tour, arrangements can be made.
Pick-Up and Drop-Off is usually at your Hotel. However, your Pick-Up and Drop-Off locations can be a Coffee Shop, Restaurant, Neighborhood, Broadway Show, or wherever you desire. Our Tours are all about you! We will call you before your Tour begins to find out where you wish to begin your Tour.
Your Tour will begin by your Driver/Tour Guide asking questions such as: "How many times have you visited New York City? What have you seen thus far during your visit? What is it that is most important for you to see and do?" Then, we point out on a New York City Map the Geographical Layout of Manhattan, the Boroughs, and Neighborhoods. And then we customize a Tour specifically designed for you and your interests. If you have a list of Sites, Stores, and Neighborhoods you wish to visit, we are here to accommodate your wishes.

EXPERIENCE THE CITY TO THE FULLEST
Throughout your Tour we will point out on the Map specifically where we are located in respect to your Hotel so you fully understand where Neighborhoods and places of interest are located. During your Tour we'll point out the contrast in Architecture from Neighborhood to Neighborhood, which makes New York City so unique and interesting, as no two Neighborhoods are exactly alike. We'll also recommend local restaurants within each Neighborhood where you may consider dining while you're visiting the City. We're glad to make reservations for you, as well.
If at any time you wish to enter a Store, Deli, or get out of your Tour vehicle to take photographs, Shop, or browse a Neighborhood, you are welcome to do so. We highly encourage bringing your camera, as there are so many photogenic buildings and sites throughout the City.
All of our Enthusiastic, Entertaining and Knowledgeable Drivers are Licensed NYC Tour Guides, and English is their Native Language. (Foreign Language Tours can be arranged).
Please allow us the privilege of Touring you and your group throughout the great City of New York!
