New York City is the place to be for any group for a unique sightseeing experience like no other. Just imagine you and your group in the heart of the Big Apple! New York can be anything you want it to be. It’s why millions of people pin their dreams on the place, throw caution to the wind and show up on its doorstep. The city tempts you to take a bite of its vibrant, cosmopolitan atmosphere and experience its overpowering energy and diverse cultures. This cultural hub is home to a host of world class museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) and the Guggenheim. You can also shop-til-you-drop in Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s, relax in Central Park, or take time to reflect at the 9/11 Memorial.

New York’s buildings and skyline are instantly recognisable and undeniably iconic. No visit to NYC is complete without a group visit to the Empire State Building – or perhaps view the city from Rockefeller Center. Admire the skyline from the water as you sail across to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Furthermore, visit Times Square, at the heart of the city to soak up the bustling atmosphere. There, your group can even enjoy a Broadway show.

Suggested itinerary by Air

Day 1

Fly from the UK

Fly directly to New York, JFK or Newark airport, where you’ll be met and transferred to your hotel.

Day 2

New York Sightseeing – Times Square, Greenwich Village & the Empire State Building

Take advantage of your City Sightseeing bus ticket which is valid for 48 hours and takes in four different routes around the city. From Harlem to Brooklyn and the Upper West Side to Greenwich Village – there is so much to see and do. Your ticket also allows a 90 minute cruise along the Hudson and East Rivers – perfect for balmy summer evenings!

Day 3

New York Sightseeing – visit Central Park & 5th Avenue

Spend time in Central Park, 843 acres of open space in the middle of Manhattan – perhaps ride the famous carousel, have a row around the lake, or enjoy a picnic in the sunshine. Then hop back onto the sightseeing bus to see the rest of Manhattan.

Days 4

Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island

Today, why not take the ferry from Clinton Castle to Liberty Island? Enjoy an audio tour around the Statue of Liberty before sailing to Ellis Island for a visit to the Immigration Museum, the first port of call for new settlers and visitors to the US. After the boat docks back on Manhattan, perhaps take the opportunity to walk across Brooklyn Bridge and see the city from a different perspective.

Day 5

Return flight to the UK

You may have time to visit one of New York’s world class museums such as the iconic Guggenheim Museum designed by Frank Lloyd Wright or the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). The group will be transferred to the airport for the return flight home.

The best time to visit New York City is from April to June and September to early November when the weather is mild and pleasant but the tourist crowds are not overwhelming. The cheapest time to visit the city is on weekends from mid-January to the end of February.
