We booked the 4 hour private tour. It was the most amazing use of time and money. We had a driver AND a guide. The driver Dimitri knew the city streets and traffic patterns better than any life-long NY cabbie driver could. We felt safe and comfortable in crazy hectic traffic. Our guide ROB was super informative. He took us... More

A friend booked the 2.5 hour afternoon tour through Viator for the two of us... a long stroll through downtown Financial District and the World Trade Center that flew by. I went a few days before the 9/11 anniversary and our guide Jeremy did a great job discussing the site and its history, and its future. Good context on a... More

We did the 9/11 Walking Tour (Uncle Sam's Tours) with Annie on Saturday June 25th. We were especially fortunate to have such an expert guide....Annie gave us a very personal account of that terrible day in New York's history, with much detail on the various elements of the tragedy. The areas we visited were all relevant ( the streets, St... More

Our group ended up being very small but it was great that way. Annie our guide was SO friendly, sensitive and knowledgeable. It was a very cold afternoon and so she was sensitive and asked us if we would like to go someplace that was warm to hear the first 2o minutes of talking before we started to walk. We... More

Thanks to Dennis our Hells Kitchen Pub crawl was the highlight of our time in New York. We had the best night which went well beyond the tour hours - we learnt lots and made new friends. We can't wait to come back to New York and have Dennis as our guide for another tour!

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
