New York has played a central role in the history of the United States and the New World, from the earliest explorations through the Dutch and English colonial eras, to the Revolutionary War through the September 11th attacks. This tour walks you through the city’s evolution, telling the stories which allow locals to make the claim that 'this is the greatest city on earth'. Come with us and see for yourself!
We believe that New York is one of the greatest cities in the world, but every local here is sure of it! New York City's energy and pace help define modern American life like nowhere else. The architecture, culture, politics and innovation of the city are not only fundamental to the 21st century, but have made it a global leader for hundreds of years of American history.
