The "Best of" Manhattan Experience is a shortened version of our Manhattan Experience tour, designed for a full day of NYC touring, but won't overlap with evening plans.

This 6-hour tour will take you through the island of Manhattan from top to bottom, as your guide provides interesting narration along the way and walks you through each exploration stop.

The "Best of" Manhattan Experience includes an authentic lunch in Little Italy at one of the neighborhoods' oldest restaurants, Grotta Azzura and views of the city from a new perspective on a Manhattan harbor tour. End the day back in Times Square with just enough time to get ready for a night on the town.

* Best of Manhattan Experience is now done on a Sprinter van.
