Itinerary Details

Operated by: Travel Curious

New York City is fantastic year-round, but during the holidays, the city is even more spectacular and magical as the Christmas lights come on and the holiday cheer is in full swing. 

On your private tour of New York City, you will:

  • Enjoy the iconic city at its best with a private tour guide;
  • Explore Midtown Manhattan, as it lit up for the holidays;
  • Visit Christmas markets in several iconic sites, including Bryant Park and Grand Central Terminal;
  • Refill energy with a hot drink included at one of the Christmas Markets;
  • Stroll Fifth Avenue’s world-famous window displays;
  • Take a stroll down the Rockefeller Center, and see its spectacular tree, ice-skating rink, and its wonderful music.
The magic of New York City at Christmas is best experienced in Midtown, where the major department stores each adorn their window displays with unique themes each year, and where the parks turn into ice-skating rinks and Christmas markets. 

On your private walking tour, your guide will be sure you see all of the highlights of Midtown – from Bryant Park and Grand Central Terminal—through Saks Fifth Avenue, Times Square, and Saks Fifth Avenue. (if you book the afternoon tour, you may even see the Saks Fifth Avenue light show. )

Enjoy the masterful works of art on display throughout the city, which are only available to be seen for one month a year! Delight in the wonder of these window decorations, the music and lights throughout the city, and the yuletide cheer that captures everyone. Enjoy the best of the Big Apple, dressed up for the holidays.
