Day 7 & 8: New York
The toughest part of the trip will be working out how to squeeze in everything you could do in New York!
We can arrange a 48 hour hop on-hop off bus pass for you which allows you to see as much or as little as you would like, without being tied down to a tour group. If that isn’t up your street, hail yellow cabs and take the subway to fully experience New York at its best.
For panoramic views, head up the Empire State Building or the ‘Top of the Rock’ experience; for skyline vistas, take a Circle Line cruise and for shows – head to Broadway. See our blog post Stopping over in New York for more ideas!
