New York

An exhilarating fun week in ‘The Big Apple’

Come fly with us to New York, the most energy-charged city in the world and create memories of a lifetime in the city that never sleeps. From glittering Times Square and 42nd Street to glamorous Fifth Avenue you’ll experience the glitzy side of New York. Add in Downtown, Central Park, The Statue of Liberty, the art deco Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, spectacular bridges, museums, theatres and concert halls, ethnic neighbourhoods, fabulous shopping and some great ‘deli’ lunches and you’ll certainly have an action packed and exciting week!

This is a city to explore on foot; we cover all the ‘must-see’ attractions, including the quirky and the unusual such as a visit to often overlooked Smithsonian Museum of the Native American. We’ll ride the subway, take a bus and sail on the Staten Island Ferry. We also include a rail trip up the Hudson River Valley to explore the beautiful countryside north of New York City with its historic sites and pretty colonial villages such as Cold Spring and Irvington-on-Hudson.

From our comfortable and conveniently situated hotel on the Upper West Side of Manhattan Island, just two minutes from the subway, we can easily access the Downtown area where layers of history converge at Battery Park. Some may wish to take advantage of an early dinner before sampling the numerous theatre and concert venues for which New York and Broadway are famous. New York – it's brash, colourful and unlike any other city – it’s just great!

New York neighbourhood cuisine

Our special ‘Ethnic New York’ September 2017 holiday allows us to experience this great city through its colourfully diverse neighbourhoods and cuisine. Each borough is a melting pot of different nationalities, all bringing the taste of their homeland to the table. From Jewish delis, soul food in Harlem, Greek tavernas in Queens and Italian dishes “just like mama used to make” in Brooklyn.
