Your VIP tour of New York starts bright and early, when you get first access to the Empire State Building. You'll enjoy awe-inspiring views of Manhattan from the main deck on the 86th floor before the crowds arrive!
When you’re done viewing the city from above, see it from ground level by hopping on an open-top bus tour of Midtown. Pass Times Square, St Patrick's Cathedral and many other well-known sites before arriving at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, home to the Space Shuttle Enterprise. Your guide will lead you to the front of the line before the exhibition opens so you can go straight and have maximum time to view this thrilling exhibition that showcases science, technology and engineering.
Next, board the All-Day Access Pass with your guide at Pier 79. Hop off at Battery Park, where you'll take a walking tour through the world-famous financial center on your way to the 9/11 Memorial.
Inside the memorial, the guided portion of your tour ends at approximately 1pm. Upgrade for 2pm admission to the 9/11 Memorial Museum when you book for a chance to browse the many archives, narratives and authentic artifacts that commemorate the September 11 victims and their families.
If you choose the tour-only option, you can continue your sightseeing independently on the All-Day Access Pass. The cruise makes three more stops before taking you past the Statue of Liberty for great photo opportunities of NYC's most revered landmark!
