Overview

Join your private local guide on an exclusive tour to discover some of New York's top landmarks, anecdotes, fun facts, and best-kept secrets. This is our top-seller tour for all first-time visitors as it allows you to visit Midtown Manhattan's top-sites while tailoring the itinerary to your preferences ... From the Flat Iron and Gramercy Park to the Empire State Building and Herald Square with the historic department store Macy’s, Times Square home to the iconic NYE Ball-drop, the Theater District, Bryant Park with the Public Library, Grand Central Terminal, The Chrysler Building, The UN Building and 5th Avenue with the Iconic Plaza Hotel and Central Park South ... This might be considered the Big Apple "touristy" area but here is where you will still find history, surprisingly refreshing off-the-beaten-path corners, iconic skyscrapers and much more.

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 characterized the Big Apple throughout the centuries, the busiest streets, and secret gems. During the Tour, you’ll recognize some of NYC's top icons as they have appeared in many movies, tv-series, books, and magazines. Midtown is probably the busiest neighborhood in 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 themselves 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 its actual borders, we broadly refer to as 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 sub-neighborhoods from Midtown West to NoMad, Hell's Kitchen, Theater District, Murray Hill, Turtle Bay, etc. There are so many different zones within the area generally labeled “Midtown”, and so many iconic landmarks, that you could easily spend a couple of days always discovering something new. 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 we'll keep.

Additional Description

Tour Manhattan Midtown

It’s easy to brush off Midtown 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 unfortunately forever gone, like the former Penn Station torn down to make room for MSG, but some still remain like the Grand Central Terminal used by over 500,000 commuters 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 reach the Roosevelt Island Tramway, 2nd Ave and 60th street, and hop aboard to admire beautiful views of Midtown from up in the air (MTA card required to access the Aerial-Tram).

2020 & The New Reality

2020 has changed many things for many people and many neighborhoods Midtown Manhattan included. Although this area is still predominantly business-centered, it is fair to say how things have changed. Many offices are closed, partially or fully, while they allow employees to work remotely. Do not panic, the history, the icons, the hidden gems are all still here, and we will explore them along with these latest changes during our Tour.

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.

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 [...]
