Hello Julia and fellow travellers.

Not too long to go now so I have started to plan what to do with the free time and add on days in New York. We will arrive in NY on Friday 3/10 and Saturday morning is the included tour.

I have booked the NY by night optional tour, is this scheduled for the Friday night as Saturday evening is the farewell get together? Also does this tour include going up the Empire State Building?

Do you know what is included on the morning tour of NY? I am interested in spending some time in Central Park and going to the Top of the Rock in the Rockefeller centre and would like to find time to fit in a show and some shopping, plus anything else there is time for!

When are the optional helicopter flights and circle cruise taken?

If anyone reading this is on the same trip or later (Cindy i know you are on this tour) and wants to self book a trip to Ellis island and The Statue of Liberty, Statue cruises are now taking reservations for October if you want to go up the statue. It was only $21 so I have booked for 10.00am on Monday 6/10 which is the first add on day.

Thanks BB

Hi Betty Boo,

Sorry for the delay - I was just getting a few things confirmed with my colleague....

Yes, the New York by Night escursion will be on the evening of Day 11 and yes, a trip up the Empire State Building is included.

The follow is the provisional itineray for your time in New York which includes rough information about the optional excursions will take place however these are subject to change and weather dependant:

Day 11
After the wonderful natural scenery of New England, it’s time to experience the wonders of New York, where you will stay for two nights. An irresistible, exciting, eclectic city, New York truly is a 24-hour city, with no shortage of things to do and places to see at any time of the day or night.

There’s a range of optional excursions available to help you get the most out of your time here - just talk to your Tour Manager, who will be able to give you plenty of advice if you haven’t already planned every minute of your time before leaving home!

Make the most of your stay in New York by joining our optional New York by Night excursion this evening.

Day 12
This morning join an included tour of New York City, which takes you from Broadway, Times Square and the Empire State Building to Greenwich Village, then Chinatown, the Bowery and Wall Street. The rest of the day is then free for you to continue your explorations.

Perhaps visit the enigmatic Statue of Liberty, head to Harlem, or even treat yourself to a helicopter ride over the famous skyline. For all you shopaholics out there, Fifth Avenue is the place to be, and when the hustle and bustle gets too much, slow the pace down with a leisurely Hansom cab ride through Central Park. In the evening, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants - from diners serving burgers to five-star restaurants, New York has it all.

This evening your Tour Manager will provide details regarding your return transfer.

Day 13
This morning is free in New York or why not take our optional cruise around Manhattan. Late afternoon you will transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK.

Hope that helps,

Kindest regards,

Julia
