Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Save time to check out the Algonquin Hotel's elegant Blue Bar, which is decorated with art by New York artist Al Hirschfeld.
Make your way to the Algonquin Hotel where this tour begins, and start the day by exploring the interior of the classic building, a designated National Literary Landmark. Find out how writers like Dorothy Parker and Robert Benchley formed one of New York’s most famous (and infamous) literary groups, meeting over lunch and drinks in the Rose Room.

Keep the creative spirit alive on your way to a series of sites on a landmark-packed, 20-block route that’s the perfect taste of Midtown, Hell’s Kitchen, Times Square, the Theater District, and Rockefeller Center.

You’ll visit former haunts of F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, Eugene O’Neill, James Thurber, and Ernest Hemingway, as your guide shares stories from their lives, as well as details about the architecture and history of Jazz Age New York City. Take in the three places where The New Yorker was created from 1925 to 1991, and get an inside take on the city's defining literary magazine. This tour concludes at the original starting point, the Algonquin Hotel.
