What To Expect

Meet your private guide when they pick you up at your cruise port. Climb into a comfortable, climate-controlled private vehicle and set off on your private sightseeing tour that will show you the best of New York City in a short time; choose from two tour lengths to suit your schedule.

Your shore excursion is a customized experience. You can visit the West Village, a tiny neighborhood that is home to some of New York's most famous residents or cross the Brooklyn Bridge to check out the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, which offers superior views of the Manhattan skyline. Be sure to bring your camera; you'll have plenty of time to climb out of the vehicle and take photos. 

Other stops may include the galleries and shops of SoHo, the trendy TriBeCa neighborhood, and Chinatown. Visit Ground Zero and Wintergarden, an indoor palm tree atrium in the World Financial Center. See over twenty historical landmarks in Little Italy and stroll the cobblestone streets at South Street Seaport. Visit both the Manhattan Bridge and the Brooklyn Bridge, essential parts of New Yorkers' daily lives. The stops along the tour may be customized to suit your interests!

At the end of your tour, return to the cruise port for drop-off.

Our tour director made our half day tour fun and interesting while catering to all in our group with ages from 10 to 64. We saw many attractions up close and that helped us to have an amazing experience.

What a fantastic way to get off of a cruise ship and spend the morning while waiting for your NYC hotel room!! We had the privilege of having James pick us up without a hitch at the cruise terminal. He's absolutely a fantastic guide and extremely knowledgeable and personable which made our tour really enjoyable. James took us to fun stops to try the locals eats and made every attempt to customize our tour to our interests. He was such a fun guy and also very passionate about educating us about the history of the city and the diverse culture within. Highly recommended. Ask for James!

The 8 people in my group were terribly disappointed in this excursion. The driver, Jose, was very polite and professional, but provided no tour. It felt more like a very expensive extended airport transfer. The only commentary provided was to let us know where we were. When we first got into the shuttle he asked us where we wanted to go. As far as I was concerned the tour outline told us where we were going to go before I ever booked it and I should not have needed to figure that out. Our taxi driver getting us to the cruise was more informative and provided a better tour than we received for the 680 we spent. What a waste of money.

What a great tour! James - aka Jimmy - was great. He made sure we saw everything on our bucket list and then showed us sights that only a native New Yorker would know about. He was so personable - we enjoyed every minute of it. We would highly recommend! John and Sherri Allen

Derrick W, Jun 2013
What a fantastic way to be welcomed to New York! The van was plenty big enough. The driver and guide both made our trip very enjoyable. They chose to take us to places that we wouldn't have gone otherwise, like Greenwich Village, which was beautiful. We got out and had a quick walk around, which we also did at the Lincoln Centre where we stopped for a coffee and facilities. The guide was very knowledgeable. Would definitely chose this option if we went again!
