Don't get lost on the subway or pay for an expensive taxi ride. Instead, explore Manhattan via comfortable SUV. Get picked up at your hotel and then hop in the automobile. With your trusty local guide by your side, get ready to see Lower Manhattan like never before.
Begin the tour in historic Greenwich Village, once home to the city's artsy bohemian crowd and future rockstars (Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Jimmie Hendrix). Today the brownstone-laden neighborhood is filled with the rich and famous. Drive down the area's leafy streets and feel free to get out to take a photo whenever you like. Then head south to the shopping mecca of SoHo and trendy TriBeCa, known for putting on an annual film festival.
Cruise along the Hudson River until you reach the Financial District, also known as FiDi. See the 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Center, the tallest building in North America. From there traverse the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most iconic bridges on the planet, and then come back to Manhattan via the Manhattan Bridge.
Depending on traffic, drive through densely packed Chinatown and then shrinking Little Italy, home to more than 20 historical landmarks and a plethora of Italian-American restaurants.
When the tour concludes get dropped off at your hotel. If you’ve selected the half-day tour (see below in Itinerary), see the rest of the best of New York City.
