“The "Be My Guest" dinners were not only value for money but they were very entertaining in getting all participants get to know each other better. The Dinner and Function at Le Moulin de Saint-Laurent, Quebec was the high-point that explains what Trafalgar is all about.”

“The Host Ben Conte went above and beyond sharing his expert knowledge and was available, caring and attentive of everyone at all times. Ben engaged everyone regardless of age, nationality or personality and even when we were on long drives without scenery changing he kept up our spirits and interest. I cant speak highly enough of Ben and Id be hesitant to do another trip without someone of his standard to fill the shoes. There could be no-one. He is genuine, tends to everyones needs and so informative and exciting to listen to.”

New York - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

New York City, NYC, The Big Apple, even Gotham – the list of epithets for the US's most populous city goes on. From trendy Manhattan and hipster Brooklyn to multicultural Queens and the legendary Bronx, New York City is a world of its own. Aside from being a trade and finance capital, NYC is a centre for media – drive and ambition fuels this city. The opportunities that bring so many dreamers to New York have also created a unique fusion of culture, cuisine, art and fashion. With so much to see, experience and taste, it can sometimes feel impossible to fit everything in when travelling to New York because this is the city that never sleeps.

Travel Highlights

  • The Empire State Building is a must-see. An icon of the city skyline, head to the viewing deck for a breathtaking perspective.
  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art or ‘The Met’ houses one of the biggest art collections in the world.
  • The Rockefeller Center is the epitome of New York in Winter. The Christmas Tree, the ice rink, the shops. If you’re visiting for Christmas, this is the place to go.
  • Times Square is the image of New York broadcast around the world. While a tourist trap, it has to be seen.
  • Chinatown is an experience like no other; an attack on the senses that you won’t begrudge.
  • Brooklyn Bridge is another icon of New York, but it’s also crowded. Pulaski Bridge is lesser known and offers a great view of the NYC skyline.
  • The 9/11 memorial will be a sobering experience.

Travel Tips

  • To visit the Empire State Building, buy tickets online or arrive very early or late to avoid long queues. It open all year around (including holidays) from 8 am to 2 am.
  • Get a Metrocard and start using the subway.
  • Dress for the weather. Walking a lot is mandatory in New York and being prepared for the outdoors will pay off.
  • Foodies should head to Hell’s Kitchen and 9th Ave, just five minutes away from Times Square.

About New York City

New York City (population: 8.33 million) is one of the most iconic cities on the planet, an epicenter for fashion, arts, dining, shopping and fine living. Change is always about in New York. New stores keep cropping up and you’re sure to come across new cafes, restaurants, bars and nightclubs every time you visit NYC.

Almost each and every area is full of architectural treasures, unique stores, beautiful cafes and interesting experiences, making city explorations pleasurable. Some of the top attractions of New York include Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Times Square, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Modern Museum of Art (MOMA), Grand Central Terminal and the American Museum of Natural History. Don’t forget to pay your tributes to the lady in green by visiting Liberty Island. The trip itself is worth it.

How to Get Around

There are a number of options to choose from when it comes to getting around NYC. The subway is always your best and most convenient option as it helps you save a lot of time and is very economical. Other options include the bus, taxis and bikes. NYC is actually a great cycling city and have designated lanes for bikers.

Tours and Activities in New York City

New York City is the commercial capital of not just the United States, but of the world in general. It is also news media capital of the nation. With a population of more than 8 million people, NYC is as diverse and as other city in the world. There are hundreds of things to do and see in this city no matter what interests you have.

Top 3 attractions in New York:

  • The Statue of Liberty is, by far, the most iconic NYC landmark. This powerful symbol of liberty, gifted by the people of France, is also symbolic of the United States’ acceptance of immigrants from all over the world.
  • Visit The American Museum of Natural History - one of the largest museums in the world with a collection of over 32 million specimens of plants, animals, fossils, rocks, meteorites, and cultural artifacts.
  • Experience sensory overload at Times Square - NYC’s entertainment district and business hub. Be dazzled by the illuminated billboards, enjoy culinary varieties, see some unique street performers, fill-up your shopping-carts with international brands, and see Broadway and Off-Broadway shows.

Other things to do and see in New York:

  • As the pioneer of skyscrapers, NYC has one of the most recognizable skylines in the world and can be viewed atop one of the many observation decks around the city with views of iconic structures like the Empire State Building, Grand Central Terminal, Chrysler Building, Brooklyn Bridge, Statue of Liberty and Woolworth Building, among others.
  • Take a break from the traffic and noise of the city and visit Central Park, an 843-acre urban oasis in the middle of Manhattan. The park encompasses tree-lined walkways, rolling meadows, rocky outcrops, manicured gardens, a lake and a reservoir, a zoo, an outdoor theater and a waterside eatery.
  • Go on a cultural tour of the city and visit the many museums and art galleries such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim Museum, Cloisters Museum and Gardens, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Frick Collection, and many more.
  • Excite your taste buds with foods from all around the world. From exclusive high-end restaurants to street-food carts; from authentic pizzerias and delis to ethnic foods from different countries, the food choices in NYC are almost unlimited.
  • With over a thousand of them around the city, there is no shortage of bridges in NYC. Some landmark bridges worth visiting include the Brooklyn Bridge, George Washington Bridge, Manhattan Bridge, Williamsburg Bridge, Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Queensboro Bridge and the Bow Bridge of Central Park.

The Climate of New York:

  • NYC has humid hot summers and wet cold winters but the weather is unpredictable and changes drastically throughout the day.
  • Summers are very hot and humid which make July and August pretty unpleasant.
  • Winters (December-February) can get very cold and windy. Heavy snow and frequent sleet make it very unpleasant to stay outdoors.
  • Spring (March-May) and Fall (September-November) are the most pleasant months because the temperatures are mild, the air is crisp and clear, and there is plenty of sun-shine.

Currency:

  • The official currency of the USA is the Dollar and most businesses will not accept foreign currencies. Those that do might give you a lower exchange-rate than the banks. Hence, it is advisable that you change currency beforehand.
  • Credit cards (Visa or MasterCard) are accepted pretty much everywhere in NYC.

Because of the density and diversity of its population, “the Big Apple” is unique among American cities. It’s long history as a center of commerce and art make it a must-visit place for any traveler.
