Just arrived in the most beautiful city in the world? Then this tour is for you! The guide will take you to all the hot spots in Manhattan from Times Square to Grand Central Station. Rendez vous at Times Square with its overwhelmingly flashy billboards. Frank Sinatra once performed here for his first time, somewhat restless and uncertain. By far the busiest intersection in New York ... lies here too, deep underground: the New York Subway. Nearly 60 million travelers pass here each year. Bryant Park, New York's most charming park, is nearby as is the impressive library (one of the favourite spots of Carrie from Sex and The City).
Gaze up and discover the impressive Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, and the stunning UN-building. And discover a handy trick how to orientate easily in the Big Apple. The tour ends at Grand Central Station, where the guide will introduce you to some enchanting corners and compelling anecdotes.
