Full Description

This stroll begins by The Plaza Hotel and continues south along Fifth Avenue starting at 59th and ending at 34th Street. As we pass Tiffany's and many more notable shops, we will witness Rockefeller Center and its vision of a city within a city, take a few minutes of respite inside St. Patrick's Cathderal and pass through the Diamond District. On our way towards Grand Central Terminal we absorb much of the 'to and fro' activity of the daily commuter. Passing New York Public Library/Bryant Park, we'll end at the Empire State Building.

 

The tour has a few designated stops, many of which your professional and licensed guide will point out historical highlights, architecture, and relate unique stories. Although our stroll measures just over one mile, there is no shortage of sites to see. All stops are public & non-ticketed with the exception of the Empire State Building. If interested in seeing the city from its observatory deck, please purchase tickets beforehand or on-site following our tour.
