Overview

Skip the hassle of getting around in New York City with a local guide and a private SUV. This tour of Lower Manhattan shows you the best of the borough, including historic Greenwich Village, SoHo, TriBeCa, Chinatown, and Little Italy, among other neighborhoods and sites. Learn about the history of each place and hop out to take photos as often as you like. Upgrade to a half-day tour to explore Upper and Mid-Manhattan too.
  • Local guide: discover NYC's neighbourhood through the eyes of a New Yorker
  • Visit SoHo, TriBeCa, Greenwich Village, and Little Italy
  • Choice of morning, afternoon, or evening tour departures
  • Hassle-free round-trip transfers from your Manhattan hotel
Don't get lost on the subway or pay for expensive taxi rides; instead, explore Manhattan in a comfortable SUV. After being picked up from your hotel, set out to explore Lower Manhattan with a local guide to offer insider knowledge and recommendations along the way.

Begin the tour in historic Greenwich Village, once home to the city's artsy bohemian crowd and future rockstars (Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Jimmie Hendrix). Today the brownstone-laden neighborhood is filled with the rich and famous. Drive down the area's leafy streets and feel free to get out to take a photo whenever you like. Then head south to the shopping mecca of SoHo and trendy TriBeCa, known for putting on an annual film festival. 

Drive along the Hudson River until you reach the Financial District, also known as FiDi. See the 9/11 Memorial and One World Trade Center, the tallest building in North America. From there traverse the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most iconic bridges in the city, and then come back to Manhattan via the Manhattan Bridge. 

Depending on traffic, drive through densely packed Chinatown and then shrinking Little Italy, home to more than 20 historical landmarks and a plethora of Italian-American restaurants. 

When the tour concludes get dropped off at your hotel. If you’ve selected the half-day tour, continue exploring the rest of Manhattan.

New York Fun Tours
3-Hour Tour (Lower Manhattan) 
 In the massive city of New York, where do you begin exploring? What should you see? Toss aside your heavy guidebooks and allow your private guide, an in-the-know New Yorker, lead the way. After hotel pickup, just sit back in your spacious SUV and enjoy the ride. You’ll be able to get out at most locations to walk around and snap pictures. 

Start in the historic West Village, the former favorite haunt of New York's bohemians and now residence to some of the city's most influential citizens. In SoHo, pass by trendy shops and art galleries, and check out TriBeCa, site of the annual film festival, listening to informative commentary along the way.

Along Hudson River, reach the World Financial Center, where you’ll ponder over Ground Zero and admire the Winter Garden, a gorgeous multi-level barrel-vaulted glass atrium. Then catch sight of magnificent boats at cobblestoned South Street Seaport.
Cross the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the world's first suspension bridges built in 1870, and gaze at the stunning Manhattan skyline from Brooklyn Heights Promenade. Admire another great suspension construction, the Manhattan Bridge, used by over 350,000 commuters each day. 

Depending on traffic conditions, drive through Chinatown, home to the largest Chinese population in North America, and Little Italy, which boasts more than 20 historical landmarks. Learn about the neighborhoods’ rich immigration history dating from 1800 to 1965.

At the conclusion of your tour, your SUV takes you back to your hotel. If you’ve selected the 5-hour tour (see below in Itinerary), see the rest of the best of New York City. -------------------- ITINERARY -------------------- Optional 5-Hour Tour (Lower, Upper and Mid-Manhattan)
 After exploring Lower Manhattan, you’ll begin at Spuyten Duyvil, or Spouting Devil, at the northern tip of Manhattan Island, for amazing views. Then make your way down the city grid and view The Cloisters and Dyckman Farmhouse, the city’s sole remaining Dutch colonial farmhouse. 

 Reach Washington Heights and see Morris Jumel Mansion, built in 1765, the oldest house in the borough, as your guide sheds lights on its importance during the American Revolution. Drive by Yankee Stadium and Rucker Park before heading to Morningside Park and Columbia University. At the Gothic-Revival St John the Divine Cathedral, look at Peace Fountain, a 40-foot-tall (12-meter-tall) bronze sculpture. Learn about New York’s affair with jazz as you drive by the Cotton Club, Duke Ellington’s statue, and travel along 125th Street, the ‘Main Street’ of Harlem. Maybe it’s time to grab a snack at Red Rooster, named after a Harlem speakeasy and popular with the locals. 
Then head down the elegant, tree-lined Museum Mile, hugging 5th Avenue and home to top-notch museums and eye-catching mansions. Observe more classic New York architecture at Lincoln Center and the brownstones of the Upper West Side. 

In Midtown, gaze at the Beaux-Arts-style Grand Central Terminal and the Art Deco lines and curves of the Chrysler Building. Wander through Central Park and pass by the Alice in Wonderland statue, the zoo and Strawberry Fields inspired by John Lennon. A fan of Seinfeld, Sex in the City, Gossip Girl or Woody Allen flicks? During the tour, your guide points out popular filming locations. If you’re fashion-focused, get tips on where to shop along 5th Avenue, where you’ll also see St Patrick’s Cathedral, an impressive display of American Gothic Revival architecture. 

 Round out your tour at Rockefeller Center and check out Radio City Music Hall, 30 Rock and the Today Show studio, before being transported back to your hotel.

We loved this tour. It was a great way to see it all in the comfort of a car. Better than a bus or a walking tour.

James was wonderful! He arrived 10 minutes early, extended our tour by nearly 1 hour and was very informative. He stopped and took pics of us wherever we wanted. I’d definitely recommend him and the tour!

Highly Recommend: Great Way to Learn About Lower Manhattan

Jimmy was an excellent guide with his excellent knowledge of the neighborhoods of Manhattan and Brooklyn. He's a native of Brooklyn and lived in Manhattan and so knows these neighborhoods firsthand. Jimmy was super enthusiastic throughout the tour and asked more than once if we were getting what we wanted out of the experience. We did. We covered many neighborhoods throughout Lower Manhattan like SoHo, Greenwich Village, Little Italy, Chinatown and a few in Brooklyn and were able to get a real feel for the history of these neighborhoods that we couldn't have gotten on our own with a guidebook. Highly recommended and this tour is a great complement to your trip if you've spent most of your time in Midtown and Central Park.

James is great! Decided on the five hour tour and it was so worth it! He asked us some questions and then we we're off! Went places we never would have found on our own! My daughter loved the candy store and bakery! The money shot would have never happened and not running over the guy with his dog will forever be a family joke. I highly recommend this tour to all. It was well worth the $$.
