Meet your guided transport in front of Le Parker Meridien Hotel in Midtown, a district easily accessible by public transportation and ideally situated for a day of sightseeing. Relax on leather seats as you're driven around town in a brand-new luxury vehicle. Depending on group size, some vehicles come equipped with flat-screen TVs and wall plug-ins to ensure your phone has enough juice for snapping plenty of pictures.
While your driver expertly navigates New York's busy streets, a separate guide relays information about the sights as you pass them. See the breadth of Manhattan, from Central Park's leafy expanses to Wall Street's famous bull to the wedge-shaped Flatiron building. You can also pay your respects to fallen heroes outside the 9/11 Memorial. At each stop, take the opportunity to walk around as your guide shares commentary about each attraction.
Following your comprehensive exploration of New York City from the ground, experience the city from the sky. The tour includes admission to One World Observatory, one of Manhattan's most popular new destinations. Skip the lines, receive salutations from an array of languages from around the world at the Global Welcome Center and shoot to the top of the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere. On the 60 second ride, watch as LED technology displays the construction of Manhattan's skyline over centuries.
Once you arrive, feel free to explore three stories filled with floor-to-ceiling views of New York City sprawled below. Spy the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge in the distance, plus views of the Empire State Building, Fifth Avenue's flashy boutiques, St. Patrick Cathedral and some of the sights you saw during your driving tour. Within a day, you'll have explored every side of New York City.
