Delve into New York’s most multiethnic neighborhoods during a 4.5-hour guided sightseeing tour and discover the city’s unexplored areas including Harlem, The Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn. Learn about the various cultures, eat their food and visit numerous iconic landmarks.


Greet your knowledgeable English-speaking guide in front of the Sheraton Hotel (811 7th Ave) and set off on a comfortable bus to the Upper West Side of Manhattan. You’ll get to the West Side Highway, where you’ll admire Riverside South, a grand residential complex originated by Donald Trump with beautiful views over the Hudson River. This river separates the states of New York and New Jersey. From this part of town, you’ll also get a great view of the Intrepid, the legendary aircraft carrier which is now a very popular museum.

Continue your journey to the north of Manhattan and travel to Harlem, an incredible cradle for jazz and the Afro-American culture. While you sit back on the bus, you’ll marvel at some of the neighborhood’s most famous monuments, like the Cotton Club and the Apollo Theatre.

The bus will then head to The Bronx, known as the Salsa Borough, and the area that saw Jennifer Lopez grow up. Not to mention, the  where the best Yankees players live.

Upon arrival in The Bronx, you’ll stop to admire the Yankees Stadium and Fort Apache, one of NYPD’s Precinct Station House, famous for being the set of the film Fort Apache, The Bronx. The bus will continue to the famous Grand Concourse and South Bronx, full of colorful graffities (don’t miss the numerous graffities dedicated to the former rapper, Big Pun). This part of town is also famous for the numerous memorials to gang members who were killed in shootouts.   

The next destination is Queens, the largest and most multicultural borough. Here you’ll visit Malba, an elite enclave full of impressive mansions, located on the other side of the Whitestone Bridge.

You will probably recognize the next stop as several movies have filmed numerous scenes here, including Men in Black and Come to America. Flushing Meadows Corona Park is also home to the New York Mets (Citi Field) and where the US Open Tennis takes place yearly. The Queens Museum of Art is also situated here. You’ll have time to either stroll through the park or visit the Museum (open Wednesday – Sunday), in which case do not miss the incredible 900 square-meter model called “The Panorama of the City of New York”.

Leaving Queens behind, you will head to Brooklyn. Here, you will explore Williamsburg, inhabited by a large Jewish community, currently considered the second largest orthodox Jewish community in the world. The change of culture, language, customs and life style is extremely palpable.

You will also enjoy the best views of Manhattan and the famous Brooklyn Bridge from this neighborhood.

The last stop will be China Town, on the other side of the Manhattan Bridge, which is ideal if you like authentic Chinese food and from where you can continue discovering the city at your own pace.
