3-Hour Tour (Lower Manhattan)
Why take the confusing subway or an expensive taxi to see Manhattan when you can do it in serious style? This 3-hour private tour of Lower Manhattan shows you a portion of the Big Apple while in a limousine. After getting picked up at your hotel, sit back and enjoy the tour. With your private guide at your side, learn about the history and culture of the places you pass by. And don't forget your camera as you'll have the opportunity to get out of the limo for photo ops. 

Start the tour in Greenwich Village, once a separate village in the early 19th century and then, in the 1960s, home to many artsy bohemian types. Today the Village is filled with the rich and famous. Then drive through trendy SoHo, a shopping mecca that is crammed with gorgeous cast-iron buildings, followed by trendy TriBeCa, site of the annual film festival and plenty of expensive loft apartments. 

Continue riding south, as you hit the Financial District, known as FiDi. See Ground Zero, the 9/11 Memorial, and towering One World Trade Center, the tallest building in the United States. Then cruise over the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most iconic spans on the planet. 

After heading back into Manhattan (via the Manhattan Bridge), meander through Chinatown, a densely populated neighborhood with a plethora of great Chinese restaurants and markets. Learn about the rich history of the neighborhood and about Chinese immigration. 

At the end of the tour, your limo transports you back to your hotel. If you’ve opted for the 5-hour tour (see below in Itinerary), your luxurious urban adventure continues in Upper and Mid-Manhattan.

Itinerary

Optional 5-Hour Tour (Lower, Upper and Mid-Manhattan)
After covering Lower Manhattan, start at Spuyten Duyvil, or Spouting Devil, at the very top of Manhattan Island, for great views. Then work your way down the city and catch sight of The Cloisters and Dyckman Farmhouse, the city’s only remaining Dutch colonial farmhouse.

In Washington Heights, admire Morris Jumel Mansion, built in 1765, the oldest house in the borough, as your guide explains its role during the American Revolution. Capture sights of Yankee Stadium and Rucker Park, before heading to Columbia University and Morningside Park. Behold the 40-foot-tall (12-meter-tall) bronze sculpture of Peace Fountain at the Gothic-Revival St John the Divine Cathedral.

Travel along 125th Street, the ‘Main Street’ of Harlem, and learn about New York’s jazz history as you drive by the Cotton Club and Duke Ellington’s statue. Perhaps grab a bite at local-favorite Red Rooster, named after a Harlem speakeasy.

Then drive down Museum Mile, a tree-lined stretch along 5th Avenue home to nine world-class museums and stately mansions. In the Upper West Side, admire Lincoln Center and brownstones, iconic New York architecture.

In Midtown, see the Beaux-Arts-style Grand Central Terminal and the Art Deco beauty of the Chrysler Building. Meander through Central Park and see the landscaped Strawberry Fields dedicated to John Lennon, and pass by the zoo and the Alice in Wonderland statue.

During the tour, get a kick out of seeing filming locations used in Seinfeld, Sex in the City, Gossip Girl and Woody Allen movies. Receive tips on hot shopping spots along 5th Avenue and see a great example of American Gothic Revival architecture at St Patrick’s Cathedral.

Wrap it up at the one-and-only Rockefeller Center, and set eyes on Radio City Music Hall, 30 Rock and the Today Show studio. Your comprehensive tour over, enjoy one last limo ride back to your hotel.

Laurie was a great guide, and extremely knowledgeable. She also let us veer from the standard tour by allowing us to stop into a pub I wanted to show my relatives, and then suggested another!. I highly recommend the tour!

This was an amazing experience for my family. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we had to switch the date of our tour with only 48 hours notice and the company graciously accommodated our change in plans. Eddie, our limo driver, was amazing. Nancy, our tour guide, was a lot of fun and so knowledgable about local history. Nancy and Eddie showed us places we didn't even know existed and didn't waste a minute of our three hours together. Highly recommend this tour. Thanks, Eddie and Nancy. You were fabulous....

Our guide on this tour, Laurie, was great. She was full of information, and really enthusiastic. And it was a great way to see the city. My only quibble is that the limo windows were tinted meaning that until you got out of the limo, you got a slightly darkened view of things.

This was so worth doing! Tony was a fantastic guide who was great fun too! We saw loads, got the chance to take lots of pictures and found out loads of useful stuff. Very swish being in a stretch limo too. We did the tour on our first day and it really helped us get our bearings and decide what we wanted to visit during the rest of our trip. Highly recommended.

This tour was easily one of the best decisions we made on our trip to New York. Our guide Ianto was fantastic! We could not have asked for a better way to be shown the city and he also had great recommendations on where to sight-see and eat. I cannot rate this high enough and encourage anyone to try this tour out as well!
