We start off in the heart of the city with a walk through Times Square. Next your guide will take you up to the observation deck of the Empire State Building and describe the 360 degree views of New York City. Then....

Lunch in Little Italy (1 Entree and Soft drink included). Following lunch:

We walk down to Chinatown. We will discuss the history of Canal Street and you can see where visitors from around the world shop for "authentic-fake" handbags and imitation "rolex" watches.

Then we take a boat ride to the Statue of Liberty. The guide will teach the history of the Statue, its construction, and discuss the great views across the water of Manhattan's downtown skyline.

Next your guide will walk you through Ellis Island and share the stories of some of the 4,000 daily immigrants processed there. You will see a demonstration of what America's newest arrivals went through at the completion of their long journey from Europe.
