What to Expect
Meet your guide in downtown Manhattan at the National Archives at 1 Bowling Green. As you walk through historic Wall Street, learn about how New York became the city it is today. The private tour ensures you have your guide’s full attention and that you can ask questions at any time. From Battery Park, enjoy priority boarding for the Liberty Island ferry. After a short ride with sweeping views of the skyline, you'll arrive at Liberty Island. Follow the guide through the very path that immigrants arriving in New York took a hundred years ago. Once you return to Manhattan, begin a leisurely walking tour of famous downtown landmarks, including the Stock Exchange, Trinity Church, and Alexander Hamilton’s grave. As some locations are unmarked or hard to find, the guide ensures you don’t miss a thing. End the tour at the National 9/11 Memorial Museum, where the guide offers a local perspective on the events and aftermath. Hear the resilient story of the Survivor Tree. Upgrade to include a visit to the One World Observatory for panoramic views of the city. Observatory tickets sell out fast, but your pre-reserved ticket guarantees entry.
