At your hotel
Host to meet guests in lobby of hotel. Subway to starting point in Central Park.
Park starting point is Strawberry Fields. Approximately 1 hour in the park checking off park highlights including Bow Bridge, Bethesda Terrace, The Mall, Sheep Meadow, Wollman Rink, and Gapstow Bridge.
From The Plaza to the Empire State Building, it is only 1.5 miles. Here's the catch; there is so much good stuff in between including a few side detours. Includes famous shops, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, Grand Central, New York Public Library, Bryant Park. Allow 2 - 2.5 hours depending upon additional mini-stops per guest wishes!
Tickets not included, this would be reserved separately by guests at another time. The new Starbucks Reserve opened recently next to the Empire State Building, might be a good time for us to take a 30 minute rest. Coffee and people watching two of my favorite hobbies!
Highlighting Macy's magic
Highlighting history, Broadway, and traditions of Times Square. Ending point.
Includes guide fee, hotel pick-up..
Any subway, beverage, or food costs.
Often I bounce between contractual jobs in in different forms; additionally manage a beautiful Airbnb in upstate New York. If open, nothing better than sharing NYC with you!
Times are not exact, just an estimate. Life happens, again my rule always is no pressure, no stress. We are a team.
My opinion is that walking is the way to experience New York's grid. Dressing for the weather and comfortable shoes will make or break the experience; the clothing is too expensive on Fifth :-)
Any train, food/beverages costs are not included. Very happy to guide us to these places however!
Currently $2.75 per one-way
Dressing for weather is key. However, if heavy downpour is expected entire duration, guide will do her best to offer options to reschedule.
