Full description
Avoid tiresome and disengaging group tours and inject some fun into your vacation as you embark on this self-guided adventure. Using an interactive city exploration app on your phone, follow a step-by-step guide and retrace the tracks of Manhattan’s many famous faces. Each clue will lead you from one place to another, giving you the exact directions so you won't need a map, a GPS, or a guide. When you solve the clue and guess the answer, the secret story of that location is unlocked. The tour will take you up to 2 hours to complete, but there’s no time limit, so go at your own pace. Visit the spot where Dylan Thomas had his last drink,  discover where Barbara Streisand first debuted, and walk in the footsteps of the iconic Jimi Hendrix. This tour is an unforgettable rock and roll adventure from start to finish.
