Private SUV Tour: Best of NYC

Private tour of New York City by SUV

3-Hour Tour (Lower Manhattan)
Don't get lost on the subway or pay for an expensive taxi ride. Instead explore Manhattan via comfortable SUV. Get picked up at your hotel and then hop in the automobile. With your trusty local guide by your side, get ready to see Lower Manhattan like never before. 

Begin the tour in historic Greenwich Village, once home to the city's artsy bohemian crowd and future rockstars (Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Jimmie Hendrix). Today the brownstone-laden neighborhood is filled with the rich and famous. Drive down the area's leafy streets and feel free to get out to take a photo whenever you like. Then head south to that shopping mecca SoHo and trendy TriBeCa, known for putting on an annual film festival. 

Cruise along the Hudson River until you reach the Financial District, also known as FiDi. Explore the 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Center, the tallest building in North America. From there traverse the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most iconic bridges on the planet, and then come back to Manhattan via the Manhattan Bridge. 

Depending on traffic, drive through densely packed Chinatown and then shrinking Little Italy, home to more than 20 historical landmarks and a plethora of Italian-American restaurants. 

When the tour concludes get dropped off at your hotel. If you’ve selected the 5-hour tour (see below in Itinerary), see the rest of the best of New York City.

Jimmy was most knowledgeable! Fun, timely and easy, the vehicle was very comfortable and clean though the glass top is an average sunroof in the front only.
I highly recommend Jimmy for your next tour!

Really great experience. With a guide and van you are able to cover so much of NYC. From downtown to Brooklyn. You also get to talk to someone who is a native of NYC and knows some wonderful iconic shops and delis and places. As a first timer to NYC you are able to get an overview and orient yourself to the greatest city on earth. We managed to go back ourselves at later days and explore in more depth. Like century 21. James was enlightening and had a wealth of experiences to draw upon. Thanks mate.

First rate experience. The guide arrived ahead of time. He was extremely knowledgably, pleasant and entertaining. We saw many areas we could not possibly have known about ourselves. His knowledge of celebrities was amazing. The SUV was extremely confortable. Altogether the best tour in NYC.

This was the best thing I ever organised for us for myself and two twent something children. Lantos our drive was fantastic, he was so knowledgeable, taking us to places that we would perhaps not of gone to, he was able to tell us anything we wanted to know. He told us the best photo opportunities and places to go. Have recommended to friends already and my American friends also would like to do the tour who have visit NY several times as, we were telling them things about the city that they never knew about or visited. This tour is definitely a must

Would highly recommend this tour we had James as our guide and he was brilliant he was extremely knowledgeable we managed to see so many sights within this 3 hour tour it's a brilliant way of getting out of the heart of New York and around the outskirts to get your bearings of were everything is located James kept stopping at various places for us to take photos and at 911 memorial site he dropped us of at a meeting point so we could visit at no point was we given a time limit it was down to us how long we took at each place to wander around and take photos a throughly brilliant day we have got some really nice photos plus we learnt a lot about New York and its history this is a great way of seeing New York when your only doing 3 or 4 days and want to see as much as you possibly can.
