This exciting private sightseeing tour goes off-the-beaten path to experience the authentic New York City! Your guide will meet you at your hotel and you will travel via the subway to see New York at its creative best with a park built on an elevated railway line. You’ll get a bird’s-eye view of Chelsea and a bit of Greenwich Village as we stroll this verdant byway. Imagine the pictures you will bring home.
We will descend to walk the cozy, winding streets of the West Village, Greenwich Village, where all but the locals get lost. Meet the residents as we walk and, if lucky, get invited in to see their garden or home! This is where the Friends of TV fame apartment building is found, The Godfather was filmed and many more used these very streets for their story. We may even get to see one being produced! This is also where movie stars in New York actually live so keep your eyes peeled!
The famous clubs and restaurants are also on the tour as well. You will also see where many of the now famous such as Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and the group Peter, Paul and Mary first performed.
We will stop for goodies at one of the very best bakeries in New York City and also a slice of great local pizza. Soho is also on the agenda as it has marvellous galleries and New York designer stores are a treat. Then, we will go to the sometimes chaotic and always fascinating Chinatown where you will mingle with the locals as they shop for their daily needs.
We will round off this unique experience by strolling through Little Italy where your guide will point out some of the better restaurants to you.
