You can spend half a day visiting the major attractions in Manhattan or perhaps focus on certain locations such as Lower Manhattan with historic Little Italy and Chinatown, Soho & Lower East Side, Harlem and Central Park, and much more.
You can literally build your own tour if you have a list of main areas that you would like to visit, just let us know so the Tour Guide assigned to you can make sure you will have enough time to do it all or suggest alternatives in case time becomes an issue. This private tour is ideal for both first-time visitors looking to get a general overview of the city or for the more experienced ones looking to explore specific neighborhoods and off-the-beaten-path areas.
Don’t be afraid to make your wish list! At the end of the Tour, the driver will drop you off at a location of your choice based on the itinerary selected.
4-hour Private Tour - Highlights of New York
The 4-hour option is a great way to get a sample of what Manhattan can offer you. With this option, we like to drive up on the west side of the island to Central Park for a brief walk around the Imagine Symbol. We continue east and south along 5th avenue admiring all top landmarks and famous sights such as Rockefeller Center, Empire State Building, and more, going towards lower Manhattan where we will drive past Soho and the Financial District to reach Battery Park for a panoramic view around the bay and the Statue of Liberty.
6-hour Private Tour - Extended Highlights of New York
The 6-hour option will allow us more time to hop on and off our vehicle to admire more of the city on foot. We will do all that the 4-hr itinerary includes plus we will do a brief stop by Harlem and the Apollo Theater, a stop near Madison Square Park for a photo op with the Empire and the Flat Iron Building, a stop by the West Village, or in Soho, a stop by Pier 17 for panoramic views over the Brooklyn Bridge and a possible visit to the 9/11 Memorial to conclude our day.
8-hour Private Tour - Full Day in New York
The 8-hour option is the most comprehensive private tour option we have. Not just Manhattan, we can include a stop in Dumbo, the Brooklyn Waterfront to admire the view from the other side of the River (Downtown area,) or in Long Island City for more panoramic views (Midtown area.) We will enjoy many short walks around different neighborhoods of the city, and we can stop for a quick bite in one of the many tasty eateries we will encounter along our way. If you are looking for a comprehensive tour of the city and can dedicate the entire day then this is the option for you.

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]
The SATC walking tour is fabulous! Our tour guide was amazing. Friendly, helpful, accommodating and so knowledgeable about the city. It was essentially 2 tours in 1. SATC and visits to historical places in the city. I give this tour 5 stars and definitely recommend. Grab your walking shoes and schedule one today!
