What To Expect

Make your way to the centrally located meeting point in New York City, board your air-conditioned vehicle, and head across the state line to New Jersey. Upon arrival at Liberty State Park there’s plenty of time to soak up the postcard-perfect views of the Statue of Liberty, Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island, the One World Trade Center, and the Jersey City Financial District, all sparkling in the nighttime sky.

After a snack break (own expense) at Carlo's Bakery, known for its delicious pastries, it’s on to the Hoboken Waterfront Walkway for more stunning views of the Manhattan skyline. Your final stop is Hamilton Park to soak up final views of the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, the George Washington Bridge, and more before returning to NYC with a camera full of photos.

Absolutely Stunning
Chelsea_D, Apr 2024
We loved this tour and would definitely recommend it. Worth spending the extra over the big bus tours.
NYC Skyline is worth the price
Susan_B, Mar 2024
What an amazing tour! The skyline in Weehauken was worth the whole price of admission. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and made it a fun experience. Highly recommended
Manhattan from the other side.

It could have been great
Julie_P, Oct 2023
The skyline views and other places/ things I'd never seen were great! However we could only understand about half the speaker's narrative. We asked her twice to turn up the volume which she did for a moment but quickly turned it back down. Very disappointed.
Great tour
Edward_H, Oct 2023
The stop at Liberty Park and the last stop to see the skyline. Miller was excellent, very informative and entertaining
Very well done.

Our guide Sebastian led the tour with obvious.pride for New Jersey landmarks along the NJ shore of the Hudson. So we learned about baseball and Frank Sinatra on our way to see the big city skyline. The empty sky memorial was moving. Brought the fear and loss of 911 rushing back.
We absolutely loved this Trip!!
RolandMelanie_V, Jul 2023
Loved everything about this trip. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information during every stop.
Some really great views...
Sondra_G, Jul 2023
Some really great views of the city and it was really nice to get out of the city and see it from afar
Interesting facts, breathtaking views, kind driver
Claudia_S, Jul 2023
Very intersting tour with a lot of new facts for me. The view of Manhattan at the end of the tour was breathtaking. Daniel answered every question politely. To sum things up, he did a great job.
Gorgeous views of NYC skyline

10 stars. Best tour I took this week! You’ll get the best views of NYC skyline. Small group so you get more time at each stop.
Anitra_S, Feb 2023
Need to make the stops more clear on the advertising. I thought the trip was going to be in New York not New Jersey.
NJ and NY at Night
Karen_S, Jan 2023
Great experience and Daniel gave alot of history that I had no idea regarding NY and NJ. It was worth it and great to see this at night. I would recommend to all.
The views were amazing...

Mila absolutely adorable guide,very involved in her job and proud of the New York City. It's very good experience for tourists to feel the City from standpoint of the local people and see it from different perspective.Night lights are stunning! We recommend to do it to everyone !
Could have been great but was not
Joe_K, Oct 2022
45 minutes late, the trip then improved but we were left waiting outside a hotel with no access to seating or toilets - very poor. Just sent me an unsubscribe link to Tripadvisor so clearly trying to stop people from leaving reviews - think hard about this one before you book.
