Overview

Join us for an exhilarating week in New York, the most energy-charged city in the world and create memories of a lifetime in the city that never sleeps.

All about New York

An exhilarating fun week in ‘The Big Apple’

Guided Walking Holidays - A USA Walking Holiday in New York

Come fly with us to New York, the most energy-charged city in the world and create memories of a lifetime in the city that never sleeps. From glittering Times Square and 42nd Street to glamorous Fifth Avenue you’ll experience the glitzy side of New York. Add in Downtown, Central Park, The Statue of Liberty, the art deco Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, spectacular bridges, museums, theatres and concert halls, ethnic neighbourhoods, fabulous shopping and some great ‘deli’ lunches and you’ll certainly have an action packed and exciting week! 

New York City is a melting pot of neighbourhoods and its energetic personality is driven by the multitude of nationalities who inhabit the five boroughs, all bringing their contrasting cultures to the sights, sounds and tastes of the city. From the Bronx and Manhattan to Staten Island and over the East River to Brooklyn and Queens, this city never disappoints! 

This is a city to explore on foot; we cover all the ‘must-see’ attractions, including the quirky and the unusual such as a visit to often overlooked Smithsonian Museum of the Native American. We’ll ride the subway, take a bus and sail on the Staten Island Ferry. We also include a rail trip up the Hudson River Valley to explore the beautiful countryside north of New York City with its historic sites and pretty colonial villages such as Cold Spring and Irvington-on-Hudson.

From our comfortable and conveniently situated hotel on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, we can easily access the Downtown area where layers of history converge at Battery Park. Some may wish to take advantage of an early dinner before sampling the numerous theatre and concert venues for which New York and Broadway are famous. New York – it’s brash, colourful and unlike any other city – it’s just great!
