You’ll see more of New York than most New Yorkers. Are you ready?!

Your tour begins in the heart of Manhattan near Times Square. Board your air-conditioned bus and head north to the historic Harlem neighborhood, famous for its African-American roots, food and more.

After a stop at the Apollo Theater Walk of Fame, we’ll continue north into the Bronx, birthplace of hip hop and rap and home to the New York Yankees. Fill up on baseball lore at Yankees Stadium. Then head off to see incredible graffiti murals unique to this borough.

Next up: Queens, the largest borough of New York City. We’ll stop at Flushing Meadow-Corona Park, originally developed to host the 1939 World’s Fair, then the 1946 World’s Fair, with some monuments remaining you can still glimpse. The park has a lot more, including the Queens Hall of Science, the Queens Zoo, and the Queens Museum of Art, plus Citi Field, which we’ll see when we visit the park — it’s the home of the Mets!

Leaving Queens behind, your next stop is the Bushwick Collective in Brooklyn, currently NYC’s most prolific neighborhood for street art and graffiti murals. It’s a foodie destination, too, so we’ll break to grab some food.

Within Brooklyn, the Hasidic Jewish community is thriving in Williamsburg. You’ll get a chance to appreciate their distinct shops, fashion and eateries when we visit.

Finally, see the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in the world when it was built, and enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline. Our tour ends in Manhattan’s Little Italy and Chinatown, where you can enjoy this lively cultural district on your own. It’s a great place to wander, do some shopping and eating, or stay for dinner!

FAQs

How much walking is there?

At some stops, we’ll be getting off the bus to walk around the neighborhood for an immersive experience. These stops usually last up to 20 minutes.

Do I need a seat for my toddler?

There are no reserved seats for children 2 and under (and no charge for their ticket). If you’d like a seat for your toddler, please purchase one at the child rate. Children 3 and older require their own seat.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you won’t be able to catch up once it begins. Please keep in mind there are no refunds or rescheduling if you miss the tour.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine. If there’s extreme weather and we have to cancel, you’ll get a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips aren’t included. If you think your guide did an outstanding job, a tip is a great way to show that.
