Exploring our incredible city is a challenge, but you’ll see it best traveling like true New Yorkers — by train, ferry, and on foot. This one-day tour of New York includes the top NYC highlights with a strategic itinerary that’s thorough but never rushed. Do New York in a day!

Our guide to NYC in a Day Walking Tour

Begin in Times Square and learn how it became the Entertainment Capital of the World. As your expert guide leads the way, you’ll see Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, the New York Public Library, the glittering steel spire of the Chrysler Building, Rockefeller Center, and much more. You’ll even catch sight of the Statue of Liberty with a ride on the Staten Island Ferry. This is a great way to enjoy the NYC skyline, too.

Descend into the tile caverns of Grand Central Terminal and stop by Whispering Corners on your way to the subway. On Wall Street, you’ll get an insider’s view of the Financial District and pose for a photo with the Charging Bull. We’ll also pause to pay tribute at the beautiful and emotionally gripping 9/11 Memorial.

If you’ve chosen the upgrade, end your one-day New York tour at the One World Trade Center. You’ll see the “Voices” film in the Freedom Tower lobby before taking the SkyPod elevator up 1,250 feet as you watch a time-lapse of NYC through the decades. The One World Observatory begins on the 102nd floor with the See Forever Theater and moves down to the 100th floor for the main observation deck. Admire the stunning panorama of Manhattan as you celebrate the end of the best day in New York City.
