Full description

After meeting up with your guide, you will venture out of Manhattan and into the Bronx to admire Yankee Stadium, home of the New York Yankees. You will then continue through the Bronx streets, filled with graffiti and artistic murals where you will learn more about the famous street art and its history. Following the Bronx, enter Queens and stop at the Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, where the NY Mets baseball stadium "Citi Field" is located. Pass the National Tennis Center where the U.S. Open tennis matches occur, as well as the "Uni-Sphere," which appeared in the movie "Men in Black." Continue the tour in Brooklyn. Arrive at the Brooklyn Waterfront, which will provide you with an amazing panorama of Manhattan’s world-famous skyline and local restaurants to grab a bite to eat.

Before the end of the tour, the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg is on the agenda. This neighborhood is home to the largest concentration of Hasidic Jews in New York.

This was a fantastic, informative tour that my daughter and I both enjoyed very much. We were in NYC for just a few days staying in Manhattan and this allowed us to see and learn a bit more of the city. Millie was amazing...she is funny, knowledgeable - the perfect tour guide. Thanks for the wonderful experience!

We had a great experience with Millie as our tour guide. It’s a nice trip if you’re interested in knowing some history about New York and the cultural differences in each borough. We loved this trip, and will 100% recommend it to everyone who wants to know and see more of New York City.

Our tour guide Millie was great - very informative and funny! We visited four of the five boroughs in NY. We had lots of photo opportunities along the way. We sampled food at a bodega. As the coach wasn't full we were able to spread out. It was a great way to spend a few hours. Thanks very much!
