Experience New York City beyond Manhattan on this contrasts and color themed bus tour that visits Bronx, Brooklyn, and Queens. Learn about the art, history, and culture of the city alongside a NYC expert guide. Start your tour in the heart of Manhattan near Times Square. Meet your guide and board the tour bus to the historic Harlem neighborhood, famous for its African American roots, food, and more. After a stop at the Apollo Theater Walk of Fame, continue to the Bronx, birthplace of hip hop and rap. See Yankees Stadium and learn about baseball in the city. Head off to see graffiti murals unique to this borough. Next, visit Queens, the largest borough and home to NYC’s largest Chinatown. Stop to see Flushing Meadows Corona Park, originally developed to host the 1939 World’s Fair and then the 1946 World’s Fair. See memorable monuments, Citi Field, and other spots at this scenic park. Leaving Queens, travel to Bushwick Collective in Brooklyn, currently NYC’s most prolific neighborhood for street art and graffiti murals. It’s a foodie destination, too, so take a break and grab some food if you’re hungry. In Brooklyn, see the distinct shops, fashion, and eateries of the Hasidic Jewish community that is currently thriving in Williamsburg. Get a chance to appreciate their unique culture. Moving on, from the Dumbo neighborhood and Brooklyn Bridge Park, see the picturesque Brooklyn Bridge, the longest suspension bridge in the world at the time it was built. Enjoy views of the Manhattan skyline. End your tour in Little Italy. Enjoy this lively cultural district while exploring on your own.

The bus tour was definitely worth it. The guides and the bus driver were very friendly and in a really good mood. We got a lot of interesting information about the individual boroughs and always had the chance to get off at special places to take photos. Pee and meal breaks have also been considered. The guides will also give you tips on where to get the best pizza in Brooklyn, for example. The tour was definitely worth it!

Jorge was an exceptional guide, introducing us to every inch of New York with stories and anecdotes, advice on what photos to take, iconic places on the tour, where to eat and typical foods at the stops we made, he was funny and polite. Despite being a tour in English, it was perfectly understood. I would always recommend this tour so you don't miss the key points of the city in one morning

George was an excellent and funny tour guide. He kept us entertained and shared a lot of information as we went from point to point. Enjoyable pace and you really see a lot of the real New York. Lovely stop at DUMBO with stunning views of the New York skyline. This tour is good value and recommended.
