A perfect balance between riding in a small comfortable vehicle and walking, where we'll get out to explore enchanting Central Park, the mansions of the Gilded Age along Fifth Avenue, and then down to see one of the most beautiful buildings in the world.
After lunch, we’ll head down to Washington Square Park and walk our meal off in Greenwich Village. It's a unique part of town that was actually one of Gotham's first suburbs, with cobblestone streets lined with beautiful homes, some even dating from the early 1800's. Emma Lazarus, Bob Dylan, Edith Wharton, Cary Grant, and Dylan Thomas have called the Village home. Today, Julia Roberts, Anderson Cooper, and Anna Wintour, to name a few, reside here.
The excursion continues south. The Financial District, Wall Street, and the winding streets and alleys of lower Manhattan are the oldest parts of the city. We will pass through these areas to view the new World Trade Center.
I'm Fred Pflantzer, owner of NYSee Tours, a touring agency in New York City, offering intimate and informative tours of Manhattan and Brooklyn! What sets us apart? We’re one of the only New York City touring companies to provide our guests with a combination walking/riding tour. You’ll ride with us in comfort, then dive deep into the city when we walk the streets, where you’ll experience the genuine excitement and breadth of New York. And did you know some of the big touring companies in New York have eliminated their guides and mechanized their tours? NYSee Tours believes in the value of a living, breathing guide; someone who knows his or her history, but brings personal anecdotes, passion and humor to the table. Simply put, we don’t hand you a pair of headphones when you hand us your ticket. Our excursions are animated and alive, so you can live and breathe New York City. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
