Celebrate the intimate and spectacular beauty of the Statue of Liberty and Manhattan's impressive skyline from the decks of the magnificent 82-foot schooner Shearwater. This 1929 vessel, built from native hardwoods, is New York City's only floating designated landmark. When the Gatsby-era ship's sails unfurl, sit back and enjoy the casually elegant atmosphere as this ocean-tested vessel glides comfortably through world-famous New York Harbor during the relaxing one hour and 30-minute ride. Your ticket includes a serving of beer, wine or choice of soft drink. Learn More

Max did a great job leading us through the Wall Street area, offering interesting insight and information along the way! The group was small and Max was the perfect guide. We had a great time and will definitely look for Max's other NYC tours on our next trip to NY.

It was an excellent tour, very informative and enjoyable. Gave a different perspective with lots of history and anecdotes. The guide was great, very friendly and easy to talk to and ask questions. Would recommend it to anyone vsiting/living in NY.

In addition to looking at our early Dutch and English past, here is a sample of the other things we will uncover on this memorable tour:
We will visit the oldest public building in NY — one which survived two great fires, played host to George Washington, and most miraculously, emerged relatively unscathed from the devastation of 9/11 and served as a critical disaster recovery site.
We will explore the “heart” of Wall Street and talk about the importance of the New York Stock Exchange and the former “House of Morgan”, as well as the site where George Washington became America’s first president and where a deadly explosion temporarily shut down Wall Street.
We will discuss two important Downtown skyscrapers — one which was in a race for the world’s tallest in 1929 and one which led to the “Wedding Cake” skyline Manhattan is so famous for.
