Discover The Manhattan Classics
Walking in Midtown
is a perfect way to discover the different “faces” of New York City, the architectural styles that have differentiated the Big Apple throughout the centuries, the busiest streets and secret gems. During the Tour, you’ll recognize some top-icons of NYC as they appeared in many movies and books. Midtown might as well be the busiest neighborhood of Manhattan, many offices and corporate headquarters are here located, along with famous theaters, restaurants, and hotels. Here, it's so easy to find people walking, or better yet rushing, up and down the streets at all hours of the day and night, and of course the ever-popular Times Square; by the way can you guess why it’s called Times Square
This is a Tour especially recommended for first-time visitors that want to familiarize with some of the most iconic landmarks of New York, or for returning visitors that have never truly dedicated some time to explore the true gems of Midtown Manhattan. Midtown takes up the central part of Manhattan and although people do not always agree to the actual borders of Midtown, we usually broadly refer to Midtown as the area that extends from north of 14th / 23rd Street to 60th Street from the East River to the Hudson. However, Midtown can be further divided into many local neighborhoods from Midtown West to NoMad, Hell's Kitchen, Theater District etc. There are so many identities within the area generally labeled “Midtown”, and so many iconic landmarks, that you could easily spend here a couple of days always discovering new things. Since the area is very broad and offers many sights, we can tailor the visit to Midtown Manhattan to our guests' tastes and requests.
These below are some of the most Iconic areas that we can visit during our Tour. How many we can visit during our half-day tour really depends on the pace of the tour.

Major New York Landmarks
It’s easy to brush off Midtown just as a mere business center. However, it’s right in this neighborhood where we can find some of the most historic buildings neck-to-neck with modern sky-reaching high-rises. The contrast can be astounding, some of our History is forever gone, like the former Penn Station torn down to make room for MSG, but some still remains like the Grand Central Terminal where over 500,000 commuters walk through daily. Here, we will take a few minutes to admire the beautiful starred sky, we will try to guess what is so “peculiar” about this vaulted ceiling, and we will stop by the whispering arches to see what makes this hall so popular with young and adults alike.
Time permitting, we will try to visit the garden at the UN (after passing security; ID required for all participants) and then proceed towards the Roosevelt Island Tramway where can admire beautiful views of Midtown from up in the air (MTA card required to access the Aerial-Tram).
Time permitting and only if allowed, we can try to visit the garden at the UN (after passing security; ID required for all participants) - This cannot be guaranteed.
Please note that in 4 hours, we cannot cover the entire area of Midtown, so we will tailor the Itinerary to the client's request.
