2-hour New York Highlights Private Tour

Make the most out of your visit and discover New York's main attractions with your private tour guide

ABOUT THE 2-hour New York Highlights Private Tour

This 2-hour private tour is the perfect introduction to New York and a great way to orientate yourself in the city. Your local private tour guide will take you to must-see spots such as Wall Street, Broadway and the New York Stock Exchange, as well as walking you through crucial historical events in the city's history.


Discover New York, the city that never sleeps

The USA’s hottest travel destination truly has it all. Just gazing out at the seemingly endless skyline is an unforgettable experience in itself; never mind the strange sense of familiarity one gets pacing the streets made famous by countless shows and films. Together with your expert local tour guide, you’ll experience the hustle and bustle of Wall Street and the NYSE, the glitz and glamour of Broadway, and the sombre atmosphere of the 9/11 Memorial.

From Battery Park, you’ll catch stunning views of the Statue of Liberty, and despite packing in a ton of sights and sounds you’ll also explore the hidden gems of New York such as St. Paul’s Chapel - the ‘Little Church that Stood’.

An in-depth look at the ‘Big Apple’

If you are popping into New York for a quick trip with a group of friends, family, colleagues or other travellers, then make the most out of your stay by booking a private tour that fits your schedule!

In a city of 8.6 million (with attractions to match), it pays to hit the ground running with the inside knowledge only an expert local guide can offer.
