Overview

Avoid the stress of navigating New York’s crowded streets on your own on a walking tour through Midtown Manhattan. While the itinerary typically includes Grand Central, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Times Square, and Bryant Park, the private tour allows you to customize the the day to your own interests. Leave knowing the secrets of New York's postcard-worthy landmarks and an inside perspective on the city.

What to Expect
Your private walking tour begins by showing off the beautiful Art Deco lobby of the Chrysler Building and by sharing the intriguing story behind its construction, which involved a 3-way race for the title of world's tallest skyscraper. Then, head to another world-famous landmark, Grand Central Terminal, and spend the next half hour or so exploring the largest railroad terminal in the world and a masterpiece of architecture and engineering. Here you'll visit the Main Concourse with its vaulted Milky Way ceiling as well as the unique Whispering Gallery.

After leaving the Terminal, the tour then heads north along Park Avenue to the world-famous Waldorf Astoria Hotel ('the greatest of them all'), before making a turn to Fifth Avenue.

On Fifth Avenue, you'll learn about the beautifully restored Saint Patrick's Cathedral and the famous Art Deco sculpture of Atlas across the street. You will then explore Rockefeller Center and visit the Plaza and 30 Rockefeller Center.

After, you'll walk a short distance to the so-called 'Center of the Universe,' better known as Times Square. There, hear about the building and company that gave the famous square its name, see where the ball is dropped on New Year's Eve and learn about the evolution and ups-and-downs of one of the most visited tourist sites in the world.

After the hustle and bustle of Times Square, head east on 42nd street to enjoy a break in beautiful Bryant Park, where you'll learn about its sordid past and inspirational turnaround. 

Finally, wrap up outside the famous Beaux Arts masterpiece on Fifth Avenue: New York Public Library. After learning about the building, you will have a chance to visit the monumental building on your own and stroll through its marble halls to see one of the surviving copies of the Gutenberg Bible.

Choose from a 3- or 4-hour tour with just you and your party.

Amazing time in New York!

It was great, we learned a lot and we truly enjoyed the tour with Ryan! 3 hours were just enough :) We also entered a few iconic buildings such as Chrysler building, St. Regis and Astor hotels.

One of the highlights of our trip!

My husband and I booked a private tour with Max to walk through Midtown Manhattan. This was probably our 5th tour with City Rover Walks. We have been to NYC many times and walked by these buildings over and over, but never knew their history...More
