Full description
Spend the day visiting New York City’s most iconic landmarks, including the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty. See St. Patrick's Cathedral and check out the wonderful views of New York as you travel down 5th Ave. The Empire State Building is accessible at the end of the tour with a reserve or express ticket, which is optional and must be bought separately. Use the high-powered binoculars to get a better look at the Statue of Liberty, Times Square, the Hudson River, Central Park, and more.   After this experience, the group will head to Little Italy for a pastry snack. Continue your tour over to the Wall Street area, where you can check out Trinity Church, Federal Hall, and the Charging Bull statue, an enduring symbol of optimism and prosperity.   The second highlight of your tour will be a visit to the Statue of Liberty, which you’ll access by taking the ferry to Liberty Island. Access the pedestal portion of the statue, where you can get panoramic views of Ellis Island, New Jersey, and New York. Visit the new museum on Liberty Island, which chronicles the development and creation of this symbol of freedom.   Finally, your tour will end at the somber 9/11 Memorial, located at the former location of the Twin Towers. Afterwards, you’ll be dropped off at Times Square to continue your exploration of the city in this exciting square.
