The New York Official Heritage Tour in New York City is a slice of native pie. In partnership with the History Channel, this tour is all about the Big Apple from a local's perspective and a great overview of downtown. The red trolley rolls past the popular sites like Times Square and Wall Street, while the historic tour guide relates the history, triumps and tragedies of this fascinating town. I enjoyed the insider perspective on history, politics and events.
This tour lasts about two hours and you have hop on/off privileges, if you wish. Departs at 10am, 12, 2 and 4pm daily. Basically, it covers information you wouldn't always hear on a regular city tour with more emphasis on New York City historical events, not just sites. A real treat for the history buff and a nice way to see the city.
