Welcome to New York (Private Tours)
Hi, I’m Alison. Let me introduce you to New York’s best known landmarks on my “Welcome to New York” tour. This is a private tour for individuals or small groups.
The Full-Day tour takes in the highlights of midtown and downtown Manhattan. You and your guests will marvel at the excitement of Times Square. Next you’ll savor in the elegance of Rockefeller Center. Then the scenic beauty of Central Park, and many other famous attractions. In downtown, your tour continues on a visit to Wall Street and its historic financial district. The tour concludes at Battery Park where iconic views of the Statue of Liberty can be taken in. Our group will travel via NYC’s revitalized Subway system. Although, other transportation accommodation can be reserved.
Half-Day tours are also available. You may choose either midtown or downtown Manhattan. Being a foodie, I can recommend the best eateries in the city. From steakhouses to vegan restaurants, from fine dining to casual chic, I know them all. In addition, I could include exciting activities for children of all ages. A personalized itinerary catering to your needs can be customized and welcomed.
I’m a professionally licensed NYC tour guide. For your convenience, the meeting place can be arranged to be at your hotel or place of lodging.
Rates are Half-Day (4 Hours) $125 and Full-Day (8 Hours) $250.
