- Private Tour
Join us on this private, and not so traditional, Walking Tour of Midtown Manhattan along 42nd Street to discover all the great landmarks and famous attractions of the area. Although a tour around Midtown Manhattan doesn't really strike as an "off-the-beaten-path" itinerary, you will be surprised to find out that along 42nd Streets some of the most iconic attractions and landmarks actually hold secrets and hidden gems. From the interesting history of Times Square and the Theater District to Bryant Park and the Public Library finishing with a comprehensive Tour of Grand Central Terminal with a visit inside the historic train station. During the Tour, you will enjoy panoramic views over the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building for some great photo opportunities and you will discover, or re-discover, this area in a completely different way and under a new light.
