Welcome to the Big Apple! It’s time to get excited for an epic week! Tonight after checking into the hotel and putting down your bags, you'll get to meet everyone in your group and your tour guides over a stiff welcome drink. After everyone's questions have been answered, it's time to line our bellies at an iconic restaurant, before we dive head-first into New York’s nightlife with our tailor-made, MASSIVE bar crawl, taking your through some hidden bars, stunning rooftops and hipster clubs.
After a late breakfast, throw on some comfy shoes because we are sightseeing today. We will start by taking the ferry over to the Statue of Liberty, where you will be able to climb into the crown for a better view, and then we will make our own way through the city sights with the help of our own experienced tour guide. We will be sure to sample some different flavours along the way too because who doesn't love food? This evening, it’s dinner and drinks at some local live music venues.
This morning everyone will have the amazing opportunity to see New York- but from above! You can only begin to comprehend the actual size of Central Park and the number of towering skyscrapers in the city with a bird’s-eye view, so if you're feeling adventurous, we have teamed up with a great company so that you can book your spot onboard a private chartered helicopter. It is a mind-blowing experience! If heights aren't your thing though, that's ok, you can enjoy the morning with your feet firmly planed on the ground. We will hang out in Central Park for lunch, and then the rest of the afternoon is yours to get lost in the hustle and bustle of the city, or visit Coney Island. We will all check out Times Square this evening together, before heading off to see a critically acclaimed Off-Broadway Show.
Today everyone will get to stuff their faces with beer, nachos and hot dogs at a New York home baseball game + have a guided tour of the stadium. In New York, baseball is considered the most popular sport and every game draws crowds of tens of thousands of people, which makes for an awesome and lively atmosphere. After the game, we will head back to the hotel to get ready for a night of laughter at a comedy club.
It’s festival time baby! Governors Ball- the BEST music festival in New York! Brace yourselves for an an insane weekend, filled with amazing live beats by your favourite artists!
Our tour sadly ends today after our farewell breakfast. If you need any assistance organising post-tour accomodation or transfers, our staff are there to help.
