We’re listening! For years you’ve been asking for a more comprehensive tour to New York with more inclusions...well, here it is! With fabulous included features including a Broadway musical, the BEST attractions in New York, a dinner cruise, some meals and more, this tour is a fantastic way to see the very best of The Big Apple. Please book early, as we expect these dates to sell out quickly.
 
Day One: The fun begins as we meet our travelling friends, and enjoy a scenic drive down highway 17, through the rolling hills of New York and Pennsylvania. We spend the next four nights just outside Manhattan in a quiet New Jersey neighbourhood. 

Day Two: A local guide joins us this morning for a fascinating in-depth tour of New York. His local knowledge is second to none, and it’s a great way to begin our New York sightseeing. After lunch on our own, we visit the incredible 9/11 Memorial and Museum. Opened only recently, the museum’s 110,000 square feet of exhibition space is located within the archaeological heart of the World Trade Center site–telling the story of 9/11 through multimedia displays, archives, narratives and a collection of monumental and authentic artifacts. The monumental artifacts of the museum provide a link to the events of 9/11, while presenting intimate stories of loss, compassion, reckoning, and recovery that are central to telling the story of the attacks and the aftermath. Then, we see another aspect of 9/11 at the Tribute Center, where we discover the personal stories of 9/11, told by those who were there. Afterwards, you may wish to visit nearby Century 21, a huge department store offering a huge array of merchandise at bargain prices. This evening, we will offer an optional shopping excursion to the outlets in Secaucus, N.J. 

Day Three: Our favourite spot to see New York City from a bird’s eye view is at the Top of the Rock, high atop the Rockefeller Center. A gift from John D. Rockefeller to Manhattan as a place for locals and visitors to marvel at the city he loved, this is simply the very best place to see the city from above. This afternoon we attend a Broadway performance of “On the Town”, one of America’s greatest musical comedies. With the biggest orchestra on Broadway and a 30-member cast of New York’s most talented singers and dancers, “On the Town” tells the story of three wide-eyed sailors on a whirlwind musical tour of the city that never sleeps. With just 24 hours of shore leave, they’re eager to experience all that New York City has to offer…including a chance to discover love with the girl of their dreams. Afterwards, we make our way to the elegant Spirit cruise boat, where we have a chance to dine, dance and see Manhattan like never before. The three hour cruise takes us by the Freedom Tower, the Statue of Liberty, and as the sun goes down we see the lights sparkle and come alive as we cruise under the Manhattan, Brooklyn and Williamsburg bridges. A delicious buffet is featured, as well as music on the upper deck. This will be an unforgettable evening. 

Day Four: Take a trip back in time to the art deco era, as we take a tour of Radio City Music Hall. This magnificent facility, nicknamed the Showplace of the Nation, has been restored to its original opulence, and the stories and background are simply fascinating. On this guided tour, we discover art deco masterpieces, learn the secrets of the Great Stage, and meet a Rockette. We get a real sense of the grand history of this beautiful and unique venue, and the high-powered stars who have performed here. You may choose between the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Natural History or the New York Historical Museum, and the coach will drop you off and pick you up afterwards. Each has facilities for lunch on your own, or you can eat in the area. This afternoon, we visit the world-renowned Cathedral of St. John the Divine, the fourth largest cathedral in the entire world. The Gothic architecture and the incredible beauty will take your breath away. This evening, dinner is included at Carmine’s, a New York institution and landmark, and one of our personal favourites. 

Day Five: Home: We enjoy more lovely scenery today as we travel through New York and parts of Pennsylvania, crossing the border back into Ontario by late afternoon. We will return home with many lifelong memories of the Big Apple.
