Midtown can be madness! Most New Yorkers won't go anywhere near it, avoiding the crowds, the high prices, the chain fast food — everything that's not authentically NYC. But believe it or not, hidden amongst the tourists, Starbucks, and costumed characters, there is an authentic NYC neighborhood to discover.
Ready to navigate one of the busiest neighborhoods in the world? This New York City tour is going to take you through Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Grand Central Terminal — but entirely the local way!
Our NYC tour will start in Grand Central Terminal, the most historical transportation hub in the USA. We’ll explore the massive building and its incredible architecture, and learn where you can grab some local NY State food and drink. You’ll even take a hidden passage out to the street to avoid the crowds at the entrance — talk about a true secret insider’s tip!
Afterwards, we’ll head out through the skyscrapers of Midtown where you’ll uncover some short cuts, tunnels, and a few hyper-local spots for dining and shopping — places you definitely would have never found on your own! The neighbourhood might be filled with tourists and chain restaurants, but we’re here to help you discover the hidden local faves!
Of course, no tour of Midtown would be complete without seeing the bright lights of Broadway. (It might not be hidden, but let’s be honest — it’s a can’t-miss.) Picture it: you’re standing right in the center of Times Square surrounded by flashing billboards, giant TV screens, and dozens of Broadway theaters, right in the midst of it all. Pretty epic feeling, right? While you’re soaking it all in, you’ll learn about the evolution of Broadway and how theater transformed Times Square from the middle of nowhere to one of the most famous destinations in the world. We’ll also point out the hidden façades, history, and Broadway stories you might not have otherwise discovered.
Finally, our New York City tour will lead you to one of the best spots to get away from the crowds. Here, we’ll grab a local artisan meal or dessert before heading to our very last stop, our favorite craft beer bar in the neighborhood. You won’t believe this cozy bar, tucked away, up the block from all of the chaos of the Midtown crowds. Have a beer on us, and sit back and relax before you head back out into the hustle and bustle of Midtown.
