Go back to New York's origins on this 2.5 hour fully private tour of Lower Manhattan. With colonial and Dutch history situated alongside the bustling traders of Wall Street, this district offers a look at the city's past and present, while always keeping an eye on the future.
During this tour, your exuberant guide will show you the historical sites that most visitors overlook, including Bowling Green and Castile Clinton in Battery Park. Learn about Alexander Hamilton at Trinity Church before fast-forwarding to the last century, when the Charging Bull took up residence among the NYSE and Federal Hall. Modern architecture soars overhead, once in the shadows of the World Trade Center. Discuss the tragedy of 9/11 while visiting the official memorial as well as the firefighters' memorial. Then learn how Lower Manhattan has evolved since, including the Occupy Wall Street movement that took over Zuccotti Park. By the end of the tour, you'll understand more clearly how New York City has become one of the most important and inspiring metropolises in the world.
