This festive journey through Manhattan’s holiday splendor starts at The Winter Garden Theater, nestled between 51st and 50th Streets on 7th Avenue. Your adventure begins south through the vibrant Times Square and the Garment District, leading to our first stop at Hudson Yards!

Witness the mesmerizing “Shine Bright Only at Hudson Yards” light show, where two million Christmas lights dance in harmony with music, both inside and across the public plaza. Marvel at this dazzling spectacle and explore the High Line Park, one of NYC’s most captivating attractions.

Next, we visit the World Financial Center at Winter Garden Hall to experience the enchanting Luminaries Light Show. Our third stop takes you on a walk to see the Wall Street Christmas Tree, standing proudly by the Stock Exchange and Federal Hall, the first House of the U.S. Congress.

The journey continues to the South Street Seaport area, offering a breathtaking view of the Brooklyn Bridge at night. As we head north, the weather will dictate whether we walk or drive by our fifth stop, Gramercy Park, an exclusive private park in New York City. Here, you’ll see landmarks like the National Arts Club, The Players Club, Stuyvesant Fish House, Brotherhood Synagogue, Irving Place, The Block Beautiful, Pete’s Tavern, and Scheffel Hall.

Our sixth stop is at the iconic Grand Central Terminal, a crown jewel of NYC architecture. Finally, the tour concludes with a drive along Madison Avenue, leading you to the majestic Rockefeller Center, a mere block and a half from where our magical journey began.

Why type of buses does USA Guided Tours use?

Our luxury tour buses provide a comfortable and climate-controlled environment for an enjoyable touring experience, while also offering protection from the elements. We cater to various group sizes with a diverse fleet of vehicles, from SUVs to premium motor-coaches, ensuring that our private tours can be customized for couples or large groups alike. To maintain a more intimate atmosphere on our public tours, we intentionally limit the capacity of our tour buses to keep the average group size small.
We do our best to keep large, same-party groups together on the same bus, but please remember that the seating is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. Once you claim your seats – they’re reserved only for you for the duration of the tour.
