Planning a Trip to New York Your first trip to New York City can be quite overwhelming. Being in a city that seems to never sleep may leave you confused as to what you should work to fit in to ensure you are able to take advantage of your trip and really get a taste for New York City. While you are in the city, looking for a tour of New York City that can take you through the city and ensure that you see all of the â€œmust seeâ€? sights is a great way to really see the city. Finding the right tour group is important.
Tour Group Size First, you want to take the time to figure out how many people are going to be in your tour group. While it can be fun to be in a large group and meet new people, a small group is going to ensure that you are able to see the sights and interact with your tour guide. Finding a small group will also ensure that you are able to travel quickly through the city. Lingering for too long at a specific sight can eat up the precious time that you have to take in new sights and experience new places in New York City.
Tour Guide Second, there are many different tours of New York City but you want to find one that has a tour guide that will stay with you throughout the duration of the tour. Getting the history behind important buildings or learning more about a city adds depth to your tour.
Public Transportation Third, look for a tour of New York City that is going to utilize public transportation. While you are getting on and off of the subway, public bus, and ferry you will become more familiar with how to get around the city while you are travelling.
Make a List Fourth, make a list of the sights that you know you must see while you are on vacation. Take time to do your research and figure out what sights you want to see on your tour to ensure you are able to find a tour group that hits each of the sights.
If you want to go to any park, memorial, or building that requires a ticket or a pass you should make sure that the cost of your tour is going to include these tickets and passes. Donâ€™t be afraid to talk to each tour group about what exactly is included in the fee. Some people prefer to wander around the city while they are on vacation, but on your first trip to New York City a tour is a perfect way to learn about the city and understand more about famous buildings and sights you have seen all of your life. Choosing an excellent tour group can add so much to your vacation and your experience in New York City. Take time to find the tour group that is right for you, and you wonâ€™t regret it. Book your tour ahead of time and this will ensure that you have your spot with the tour group that is perfect for you. Photo Credit: Werner Kunz
