Important information

Know before you go

  • All places are visited from the outside
  • The 3.5-hour option includes an approximately 1.5-hour roundtrip transfer between the meeting point and your accommodation. Please note that the transfer time quoted is for information purposes only and the exact schedule will depend on the location of your NYC accommodation
  • The private transfers are in a standard car (sedan) for groups of 1 to 4 people, and in a large van for groups of 5 people and more. If you're travelling in a smaller group but want to travel in a more spacious car, the supplier recommends booking a tour for 5 people to take advantage of the van transport
  • The jazz concert is a separate attraction and usually starts in the evening between 5:30 PM and 8 PM. The concert program and venue depends on the size of the group, day, time, and availability, but the local supplier will always consider your best experience when organizing the tickets.
