  • Experience the West Village Like a Local

    Become immersed in the New York lifestyle in Greenwich Village by sampling classic local treats, learning about different neighborhoods, and browsing lively Washington Square Park.

    After departing from the pier, you will soon arrive at the 50th Street subway, where the guide will accompany you on a subway ride down to Greenwich Village. Emerging at the West 4th Street Station, you will then begin an enlightening walking tour of the neighborhood.

    The immediate focus will be on exploring Washington Square Park, a vibrant greenscape surrounded by one-of-a-kind shops, trendy restaurants and New York University. The mix of people is always extraordinary and the energy almost palpable as the locals go about their day-to-day activities.

    It’s easy to feel like New Yorker here, especially when you eat like one. While walking around the village, you will have the opportunity to sample all sorts of New York specialties. You can expect to sink your teeth into a hot slice of thin-crust pizza, a traditional rice ball, and a crispy cannoli.

    For dessert, think cupcakes. No longer just for kids, these sweet treats have evolved into elaborate desserts topped with everything from gumdrops to popcorn.

    Your immersion into New York life includes an overview of the architecture. You will walk the traditional Italian neighborhood along Bleecker Street and see the narrowest house in New York, a residence not even 10 feet wide.

    If time permits, you will also enjoy some free time to further explore on your own before transferring back to the pier via minibus.

  • Lower Manhattan Walking Tour & One World Observatory

    Walk through Lower Manhattan taking in landmarks such as the 9/11 Memorial before zipping to the top of the One World Observatory for unforgettable view of New York.

    After departing from the pier, you will enjoy a scenic drive through Lower Manhattan, finally arriving at Battery Park. With the Statue of Liberty in the distance, you will begin a guided walking tour, passing icons of the Financial District, such as the Wall Street Bull.

    Upon reaching the 9/11 Memorial, you will have time to contemplate this tribute of remembrance and honor to the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. The names of the victims are inscribed on bronze panels along the edge of the two memorial reflecting pools, which sit within the footprints of the former Twin Towers. It’s a powerful reminder of the events of 9/11; one you will not soon forget.

    You will then enter the One World Observatory, the tallest building in the United States. It soars to a height of 1,776 feet in honor of the year 1776, when America was founded. After watching a short movie about how the building was conceived and constructed, you will zip upward to the 102nd floor in a high-speed elevator. The ride takes less than a minute and it’s exhilarating. So is the 360-degree view of New York City from the top of the observatory.

    In time, you will descend to ground level and meet your coach for drive back to the pier via a scenic route.

    Please note: this tour includes over 3 hours of moderate walking/standing. There will be some steps to negotiate. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with walking difficulties. Participants should be in good physical condition.
