Description

from Must-See Manhattan Tour with Summit One Vanderbilt Ticket
Manhattan, with its heart-stopping pace and bustling sidewalks, can seem intimidating to visitors. But no need to worry, we got you! On this two-hour tour navigate in the company of a local New Yorker through the hustle of Midtown's busy streets taking in the sites you may have only seen on TV! Start under the landmark marquee at Radio City Music Hall, beginning with the tale of the theater's famous Rockettes before heading into Rockefeller Center - yep, that's right, we're going to 30 Rock! Stop at its famous skating rink and wander over to the gorgeous Channel Gardens.

Next, you're going to NBC to take a quick peek through the Today Show's windows - (although we can't promise there will be any Hoda sightings) then continue on to make your way down arguably the most well-known street in the world, Fifth Avenue. Yes, you're going to make a stop at Saks Fifth Avenue (not for shopping, that would take days!) but not before seeing the historic St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Pose with Patience and Fortitude, NY Public Library's majestic marble lions while reading the words of great writers passing below your feet as you stroll down charming Library Way. Pause to gaze upon the gleaming temple of Art Deco brilliance that is the Chrysler Building before heading into the heart of New York’s transportation pantheon, Grand Central Terminal. Here you will gaze up towards the celestial ceiling with the open heavens recreated in stunning detail. Follow your guide through the station's main hall to visit some, "I've seen that on TV!" spots like the famed brass clock atop the main Grand Central Terminal Information Booth, and then take a visit to the Whispering Wall to experience firsthand its odd secrets.

From inside Grand Central Station, a building like no other awaits. Ascending to SUMMIT One Vanderbilt, you'll find an immersive, multi-sensory experience designed to change the way you see the city. It's here your guide will say farewell and leave you to marvel at the rare views, complete with a pre-reserved ticket. Afterward, you could walk these streets alone but why not scratch below the surface into the events and cultural significance that make these places so special? You're one step closer to being a true Manhattanite now!

A must-do tour of must-see sites! Visit iconic sites like Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, and Grand Central Terminal then end the tour with tickets into SUMMIT One Vanderbilt.
