Discover the hidden gem across the Hudson with our Exclusive Hoboken & Manhattan Skyline Walking Tour. Hoboken, NJ, easily accessible via PATH or the NY Waterway Taxi, presents a captivating blend of history, culture, and breathtaking views, making it a must-visit for those looking to explore beyond the hustle and bustle of New York City. Join us as we unveil one of the most picturesque towns along the Hudson River, offering unparalleled vistas of the iconic Midtown and Downtown Manhattan skyline.
Embark on a journey through time in Hoboken, affectionately known as the “Mile Square City.” Despite its compact size, Hoboken's storied past stretches back to its early days as a Lenape Indian campsite, evolving into a Dutch settlement, and later, a coveted waterfront resort for 19th-century Manhattan elites. Today, a modern Water Taxi ride ($9 per person/per ride, not included in the tour price) not only offers a scenic route to Hoboken but also frames the majestic New York skyline from a fresh, awe-inspiring perspective.
Our walking tour meanders through historical avenues, leading to the Riverfront Park—the prime spot for capturing the essence of New York City's skyline. Contrary to popular belief, the most photographed and celebrated view of Manhattan isn't from Brooklyn but from this very vantage point in New Jersey.
No Hoboken visit would complete without indulging in the sweet confections of Carlo's Bakery, the setting of the beloved Cake Boss show. While catching a glimpse of Buddy might be unlikely, the taste of their famous cupcakes and pastries offers a perfect end to our journey.
As we return to Manhattan, whether by PATH from the historic Hoboken Terminal or via another scenic Water Taxi ride, the memories of Hoboken's charm and the captivating New York skyline will linger long after.
Please Note: Transportation costs are not included in the tour rate.
Hoboken's allure extends beyond its vistas. Our tour includes a walk by Sybil's Cave, where a once-fabled spring offered "miraculous" waters to reach the prestigious Stevens Institute of Technology, boasting some of the most striking city views from its hilltop campus. We'll delve into the town's contributions to sports at the site of the first recorded baseball game, remember the literary legacy of Edgar Allan Poe, and pay homage to Frank Sinatra with a stop at his commemorative statue.
