    Tour Overview

    Your excursion begins at the pier where you'll board your air-conditioned motor coach on a tour of one of the most exciting cities in the world, passing some of New York's most famous sights, such as Times Square. This commercial district is known worldwide through film and literature. As the traditional center of the theater district, Times Square has some 40 theaters including 22 that are city landmarks. You'll also drive by Central Park, the famous Radio City Music Hall, home of the Rockettes and Rockefeller Center. Travel along Fifth Avenue, famous for shopping and St. Patrick's Cathedral. Then pass the Art Deco Empire State Building, Herald Square and Macy's.

    Travel through Greenwich Village, the original refuge of artists, with its charming townhouses, jazz clubs and tree-lined streets, as well as upscale SoHo (South of Houston Street) with its boutiques and art galleries. And, a trip to Manhattan would not be complete without seeing vibrant Chinatown, as well as the hustle and bustle of Little Italy, both part of New York's remarkable ethnic diversity. You'll also pass by Wall Street, the economic engine of the Financial District. While in lower Manhattan, you'll stop at Battery Park for views and a photo opportunity of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
