Following are standard itineraries for tours of Manhattan. These are, of course, only suggestions and can be altered to meet the needs of each group or individual. The order of the various attractions will depend on where the tour begins and ends. These itineraries require no admissions. However, admissions for any of the New York attractions can be added to an itinerary and booked through Guide Service of New York.
If time allows, some may find it more feasible and enjoyable to visit Manhattan on two separate days avoiding traffic delays and providing more time to explore each section.
