For the first-time visitor
First-time visitors to New York City are often overwhelmed when they find themselves surrounded by the hustle and bustle of one of the most famous cities in the world. Visitors can use guide books and maps to orient themselves, and there is plenty of information available — right here on this website too! However, the best way to get to know the city is with a professional, licensed guide. My New York City Tours has a wonderful New York City highlights tour designed for the first-time visitor to the Big Apple.
Your tour will start in Midtown Manhattan with a visit to Rockefeller Center and Times Square, then a short subway or taxi ride to SoHo to admire cast iron architecture, and to visit boutiques and eateries. After lunch in SoHo we continue to Wall Street, and a visit to the area around the 9/11 Memorial. The tour concludes in Battery Park, with a view of the Statue of Liberty and a FREE ride on the Staten Island Ferry. The hardy visitor can continue back uptown, with a stroll in Central Park. This tour is a great way to see some of the main attractions as well as some intriguing details of the city – all in one day!
When you contact My New York City Tours, we can also find transportation services to facilitate your tour, from a private car to a small bus or van. Otherwise you can try out the New York City subway system or fleet of yellow cabs.
