  • Your historical tour of NYC begins when your private driver picks you up at your hotel in a luxury vehicle to take you to the start of your tour in Brooklyn.
  • Here you’ll meet your expert tour guide and start your journey with a walk over the infamous Brooklyn Bridge, taking in breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and other sites along the East River. Your step back into history commences as you disembark the bridge’s walkway into Lower Manhattan – which you will see like never before – through history.
  • Walking in the footsteps of early settlers, you’ll be enchanted by stories and little-known facts your tour guide will share. As you wind your way through Lower Manhattan, you’ll see the spot where George Washington was inaugurated, St. Paul’s Chapel – which is the oldest church building in Manhattan, Trinity Church – where you will find out why it was an important site during the American Revolution, the infinity pools of the 9/11 Memorial and more.
  • At the conclusion of your tour, it’s time for a scrumptious lunch. You’ll have premade reservations at the historical Fraunces Tavern, which is a National Landmark building that once served as a watering hole for many of the Founding Fathers of the US!
