The Basics

Saks Fifth Avenue occupies a prime piece of NYC real estate; it’s only steps away from St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Rockefeller Center. Due to its art-deco architecture, Saks Fifth Avenue is included on many walking tours of midtown Manhattan. Some seasonal holiday tours also swing by Saks and give you free time to check out the store’s lavish holiday window displays.

Delightful.
Our tour guide was wonderful and had plenty of isight into the history and goings-on of the area. She provided lots of information, tips, and photo suggestions. This was a great way to see the area, take in the good sights, and not feel overwhelmed trying to see it all. A wonderful tour and great guide.
