Devour delicious bites and awe at iconic sights! Immerse yourself in New York's vibrant culinary scene and stunning Central Park on this unique combo tour.


First, step into the vibrant scenary of one of the most visited urban parks in the world: Central Park, where every corner tells a story. Our expert guides will lead you through winding paths, past tranquil ponds, and beneath the canopy of towering trees, revealing the park's fascinating past and its role as a refuge from the bustling city.

Savor mouthwatering bites – from one of the city’s best Chinese rice rolls, to iconic rugelach from an esteemed Jewish bakery, a slice from a phenomenal pizzeria, and then feast on New York’s legendary pastrami on rye.


This perfect blend of culinary adventure and scenic escape is a must-do for any New York visitor. Book your tour today and experience the best of the Big Apple!

What is a Local Experience?


Local Experiences focus on a particular area or district of a city, a certain aspect of its history or culture, or take you outside the city on a day trip. Select Tours are perfect for those who have enjoyed an introduction to the city and wish to delve deeper into the stories the city has to offer. These tours often venture further afield and make use of local public transport.

As with the Free Tour, Local Experience are provided by local freelance guides in partnership with SANDEMANs NEW Europe, who bring their personal flair and expert knowledge to these specifically themed tours. Select tours have a fixed ticket price - we recommend purchasing your ticket in advance, either during a Free Tour or online.
