Places and places

1. Times Square

Impossible to visit New York and not take a sightseeing tour of Times Square, regardless of whether you are a first-time or tenth-time visitor.

The largest and most beautiful train station in New York that is more than just a train station. Here you can shop, eat, watch New Yorkers and marvel at interesting things like the ceiling of the main building.

3. Brooklyn Bridge

The Big Apple's most beautiful bridge and one of the most beautiful on the planet. Walking around this engineering feat that changed the world is an unforgettable experience, especially at sunset. We have a walking tour for it. click

4. Wall Street

Billions of dollars are traded here every day, it is the most important trading center in the world, the Bull and the Fearless Girl are in the immediate vicinity and it is from here that George Washington ruled as the first American president. If you would like to take a closer look, you can do so on our Fairytale New York tour.

5. West and East Villages

The two “villages” where the poorest people in the city once lived and today the rich and beautiful live. Tourists rarely get lost here, but this area is a little piece of old New York and absolutely worth seeing.

6. Ground Zero

A tragic place where the Twin Towers once stood, today there are two pools that serve as a reminder of the two towers.

7. Rockefeller Plaza

A very special place, not just during the Christmas season. At any time of the year, this corner looks great decorated with various works of art.

8. Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle

I love these two places especially at night. They are close by and both have beautifully lit water fountains.

9. St Patrick's Cathedral

Not just for religious people, it is an impressive piece of architecture.

10. The Plaza Hotel

If there is an iconic hotel it is the Plaza. Kevin alone in New York and famous guests have made this place immortal. You can shop and eat delicious food in the hotel's basement.
