Our guide to Must-See Highlights of Manhattan Bus Tour

Meet your guide at Rockefeller Center and kick off the day with a walk by The Rink, Prometheus statue, and Radio Music City Hall. Then board our comfortable, climate-controlled coach bus as we head south on the famed 5th Avenue.

We’ll pass through the Diamond District and Koreatown to make our first stop at Madison Square Park. Named after James Madison, AKA the Father of the Constitution, Madison Square Park provides a spectacular view of the Empire State Building and an up-close look at the Flatiron Building.

As we continue south along 5th Avenue, you’ll pass through vibrant and unique neighbourhoods — Greenwich Village, SoHo, Chinatown, Little Italy, and Wall Street. Learn about their history as your guide points out the sights.

We’ll stop at the Whitehall Ferry Terminal for lunch, then board the Staten Island Ferry for a trip around New York Harbuor passing by Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and a breath-taking view of the New York skyline.

Our next stop is to pay tribute at the beautiful and emotionally gripping 9/11 Memorial before heading back uptown to the Hudson River. Pass by the towering Vessel sculpture at Hudson Yard as well as Columbus Circle, Time Warner Center, and the Lincoln Center before we arrive at Central Park.

Here, enjoy a walk to Strawberry Fields and view the “Imagine” tribute to John Lennon, former member of the Beatles. You’ll also have a great view of the luxury Dakota apartments where John Lennon was infamously assassinated.

The finishing stretch of our tour will take us through the Upper West Side and pass by the Natural History Museum. We’ll ride through Central Park and come back down on 5th Avenue past the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Our tour ends at Times Square. If you want to stay to catch a show, dinner, or other attractions, your guide will have plenty of insider tips for things to see and do.
