What To Expect

Don't get lost on the subway or pay for expensive taxi rides; instead, explore Manhattan in a comfortable SUV. After being picked up from your hotel, set out to explore Lower Manhattan with a local guide to offer insider knowledge and recommendations along the way.

Begin the tour in historic Greenwich Village, once home to the city's artsy bohemian crowd and future rockstars (Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Jimmie Hendrix). Today the brownstone-laden neighborhood is filled with the rich and famous. Drive down the area's leafy streets and feel free to get out to take a photo whenever you like. Then head south to the shopping mecca of SoHo and trendy TriBeCa, known for putting on an annual film festival. 

Drive along the Hudson River until you reach the Financial District, also known as FiDi. See the 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Center, the tallest building in North America. From there traverse the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most iconic bridges in the city, and then come back to Manhattan via the Manhattan Bridge. 

Depending on traffic, drive through densely packed Chinatown and then shrinking Little Italy, home to more than 20 historical landmarks and a plethora of Italian-American restaurants. 

When the tour concludes get dropped off at your hotel. If you’ve selected the half-day tour, continue exploring the rest of Manhattan.

Everything was great,...
Jerry_F, May 2023
Everything was great, except not having a luxury SUV. Not worth the money without that luxury experience.
Jasper_Z, May 2023

We loved our tour guide, Isaac. He picked us up at the port after we disembarked from our cruise and gave us the best tour of NYC ever. He managed to squeeze in everything we wanted plus some! And dropped us at the airport in time to catch our flight home. Highly recommend!!

Timothy_B, Aug 2022
Isaac has such a deep appreciation of why New Yorkers love their city. He truly provides an insiders perspective of what makes New York magical.
Great tour of NYC
Cheryl_S, May 2022
Nancy and Isaac worked together to take us all over NYC. We enjoyed seeing China town. It was like another country. Harlem was not what we expected but I'm glad we could see it. We would recommend the tour.
Sublime tour that delivers experiences you would not normally find
Robert_T, May 2022
Nancy our guide was of the nicest and most informative I have ever had in over 50 years of travelling - she tailored our 5hr day around places we had not seen already whilst also accommodating some other sites she would not normally view that were interesting to our special needs son who loves trains… absolutely fantastic day and cannot recommend highly enough as you get to see way more sights that you would normally in several days… our driver Mohammed could not have been nicer to us all - superb day - thank you…
Fun and informative experience
Bonnie_K, Apr 2022
It was a perfect city overview, Nancy showed us everything we wanted to see and more. The car was clean and comfortable. We had a great experience and learned a lot. Book it!
So much fun and sights on this tour
Trent_R, Apr 2022
This tour was so much fun. We were able to see so many places and learn fun facts we never knew. I highly recommend this tour.
Great Tour. Best way to see and learn about Lower Manhattan!
Renita_P, Mar 2022
Great tour. Some of us have been to NYC before, but my teenager had not. Isaac did a great job of blending some must see locations with fun facts, things we did not know we’d want to see, and some wonderfully surprising views. This is the way to learn about lower Manhattan from a life long New Yorker. We were able to get out and walk around some of the locations and we were very pleased with our experience. Isaac was a joy and had a great sense of humor too. We learned a lot on this really enjoyable tour.
Highly recommend
Amanda_S, Jan 2022
They communicated wonderfully and Isaac was full of information and facts we have never heard of before. Very patient and super nice. The vehicle was clean and in great condition. We covered all of the places we wanted to see and some. Thank you for making this trip a pleasant one for us.
Nancy was extremely...
Tirbod_F, Dec 2021
Nancy was extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating towards our plans Would very highly recommend
It's like having a friend showing you around the city, who happens to be highly knowledgeable
Abdullah_A, Dec 2021
Me and my wife were looking for a tour with least number of people given the situation with Covid in late Dec 2021. We came across this tour and booked with no expectations at all. It was an Excellent choice for what we have been looking for, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The SUV was very good and in tip-top shape. Isaac (tour guide and dricer) was perfect. He is fun to be with, and very knowledgeable, he gave us so much insight to the city and it's history. keep in mind that we are not talking about the general information you would expect from a tour guide, it's the story behind. and in case you are wondering he is born and raised in New York. We took the 3 hours lower Manhattan option, and I would highly recommend it to anyone.
Tour guide and driver...
Jessica_R, Dec 2021
Tour guide and driver were great! I was unable to spend the day touring with my family and hired Viator to assist. Nothing but rave reviews from my family. Thank you!!
Definitely worth it!
Marissa_M, May 2021
Laurie was a great guide. I booked a 3-hour downtown/midtown tour just to give my out-of-town friends an overview of the city. Central Park wasn’t in the itinerary but Laurie added it upon request and even gave us time to go inside the park to take pictures. We got a lot of insights into the history of Manhattan.
James made the day
Tom_P, Nov 2019
A brilliant informative 5 hours. Thanks James for taking care of the group and my sister in the wheelchair
Just book it!
mjfrench2018, Nov 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of New York. James is a class act and authentic New Yorker with many interesting stories to tell. Thanks James!
Great experience
Chelsey_N, Nov 2019
We loved this tour. It was a great way to see it all in the comfort of a car. Better than a bus or a walking tour.
NYC City tour
Jacqueline_S, Sep 2019
James was wonderful! He arrived 10 minutes early, extended our tour by nearly 1 hour and was very informative. He stopped and took pics of us wherever we wanted. I’d definitely recommend him and the tour!
Highly Recommend: Great Way to Learn About Lower Manhattan
Scott B, Aug 2019
Jimmy was an excellent guide with his excellent knowledge of the neighborhoods of Manhattan and Brooklyn. He's a native of Brooklyn and lived in Manhattan and so knows these neighborhoods firsthand. Jimmy was super enthusiastic throughout the tour and asked more than once if we were getting what we wanted out of the experience. We did. We covered many neighborhoods throughout Lower Manhattan like SoHo, Greenwich Village, Little Italy, Chinatown and a few in Brooklyn and were able to get a real feel for the history of these neighborhoods that we couldn't have gotten on our own with a guidebook. Highly recommended and this tour is a great complement to your trip if you've spent most of your time in Midtown and Central Park.
Bad Weather but great day
Mark H, Jun 2019
Really enjoyed James tour. It is obvious he loves New York and his enthusiasm is contagious. Highly recommended
Great history lesson!
Diana_T, Apr 2019
We had James and he was amazing! A native New Yorker and has a lot of the history and knowledge behind all of the spots!
Amazing James went above and beyond.
Deborah_P, Mar 2019
I can not say enough amazing things about how wonderful James was. It was the best tour we could have asked for. I feel like I know so much about New York now. We will be back and hope to spend another day with James. Best $ spent !!
