2 hour private guided tour of Central Park
No movie set in New York is complete without at least one scene shot in iconic Central Park. On this 2 to 2.5 hour private guided walking tour, you’ll stroll the paths of the world’s most famous urban green space to learn about its many monuments and oftentimes quirky history.
Born in the 19th century, Central Park was designed to give New Yorkers a breath of fresh air. More than just green space, it’s also a venue for memorials and artwork honoring figures like Bolivar and Marti, as well as Balto and Hans Christen Andersen. As your enthusiastic young guide shares the park’s history, you’ll cross the famous Gapstow Bridge on your way to the Central Park Zoo. You will follow the tree-lined Mall and discuss the literary figures memorialized in statues on either side. You will discover the Bethesda Terrace and Fountain, site of countless Hollywood moments. Cross Bow Bridge on your way to Strawberry Fields towards the Dakota to learn about John Lennon’s assassination at his memorial. You’ll discover the resplendent restaurant, Tavern on the Green, before joining the locals in Sheep Meadow, where New Yorkers of all walks of life can get away from city life for a moment.

5 hour private guided tour to The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
Icons of American liberty and freedom, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island have long been a mainstay of the New York skyline and its history. Stretching back to the Dutch colonial settlement in the early seventeenth century, Ellis Island became a place known for both heartache and joy, processing over 12 million immigrants to the United States from 1892 to 1954, with Liberty Island standing as a beacon of hope for many of these immigrants. On this Statue of Liberty Tour visiting Ellis Island and Battery Park in the company of an art historian or preservationist, we’ll visit both islands to understand how the American ideal of freedom has changed over the years, and how immigration and cultural exchange have profoundly impacted the entire country.
Rest of the afternoon at leisure to explore Wall Street and World Trade Center
See the Federal Hall built in 1700 as the city hall; it’s where George Washington was inaugurated as the first president of the United States.

Then head to the historic Trinity Church, go shopping at Century 21 and of course pay a tribute to the fallen victims of 9/11.

The names of everyone who passed in the 2001 and 1993 attacks are engraved around the pools.
