No way! To have an authentic, immersive experience of New York City, we travel like New Yorkers. We would never recommend our family or friends take a car or bus to see NYC. You don’t want to spend your trip caught in traffic. We’ll travel by foot, subway, public bus, and ferry, so we can see more and do more.
The majority of the day will be on foot since this is a walking tour. However, at some points in the tour you will travel by public bus, subway, and ferry. This tour includes a few miles of walking at a moderate pace and is not accessible for wheelchairs due to using the subway. If mobility is an issue, please arrange for a private tour.
Due to time restraints, we won’t visit the 9/11 Museum or Liberty Island. The tour does visit the 911 Memorial and World Trade Center sites where your guide will share the history and stories of 9/11. We will also take the Staten Island Ferry to get a closer look at Lady Liberty and enjoy views of the skyline and Brooklyn Bridge.
We understand plans change. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time for this tour. We also offer rescheduling to another date the tour is running at no extra cost if you’re unable to make this tour. Please keep in mind there are no refunds available if you have already rescheduled your tour.
Our tours run rain or shine, so please check the local forecast to plan. In rare cases when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or give a full refund.
Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
