The Manhattan Experience is an 8-hour all-inclusive tour of Manhattan by Sprinter van. Includes 4 Exploration Stops, sightseeing ferry cruise, lunch in Little Italy, and admission to the Top of the Rock Observatory!
New York City’s most popular borough, the island of Manhattan, is brimming with top attractions, renowned landmarks and historic neighborhoods. Make your New York experience all it can be with this escorted full-day tour!
From Harlem to Battery Park and everything in between, you’ll see what the hype is about! Discover Manhattan from every vantage point – from the center of it all as you tour the streets by foot and by bus; from the outside looking in as you cruise past bridges, the Statue of Liberty and the sprawling skyline on a cruise around the Hudson River; and from high above, looking down at the Top of the Rock Observatory.
These stops give you the chance to leave the coach and explore an area on foot with your tour guide:
: Walk around One World Trade Center and its neighboring landmarks and memorials. These monuments pay tribute to those who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks and symbolize the resilience of the people of New York City.
: Ulysses S. Grant was the 18th president of the United States and Commanding General of the Union Army during the Civil War. His tomb is the largest mausoleum in North America, and it’s located in Upper Manhattan’s picturesque Riverside Park!
: This Italian enclave may be small, but it makes up for its size with authentic sights, aromas and flavors! Best of all, you’ll stop for lunch at Grotto Azzura
, a first-rate Italian restaurant once frequented by Frank Sinatra! Buon appetito!
: Discover this historic plaza and its many attractions, from beautiful sculptures to towering skyscrapers. You’ll see the famous “30 Rock” building from the ground looking up first; then get whisked away to the observatory at the Top of the Rock! Up here, you’ll have 360-degree views of the magnificent skyline!
