Our itinerary, day by day
Depart Ottawa at 7 am in the morning and relax while our professional driver takes us to our destination. After a couple of hours we will be crossing the border to the USA. Enjoy the scenery of New York State as we roll down the American highways. We will make a stop along the way to eat some food and stretch our legs. Arrive in NYC in the afternoon and check in to our amazing Manhattan hotel, home for the next 3 nights! You will appreciate to stay in one of the coolest neighborhoods of Manhattan!
Optional: Check out Times Square with us! Our Tour Leaders will take you to see this impressive NYC landmark
This morning we will head to arguably the world’s busiest and most crowded and valuable pieces of real estate: Midtown Manhattan. This is what most visitors envision when they think of New York City. You are welcome to join our discovery and orientation walk that will last about 2h and cover approximately 4 km. You will be able to see and learn about: The Flatiron building, Grand Central Terminal, The NY Public Library, Bryant Park, Rockefeller Center, Empire State, Times Square and so much more!
After our walk you have free time to explore at your leisure. We recommend you visit Central Park and uptown Manhattan today. Wondering what to do next? Our Tour Leaders usually have a lot of good ideas on what to see / do while you are on your free time.
Today we board our private bus in the morning and go to Brooklyn! We will make a stop at the Brooklyn Promenade for beautiful views of Manhattan and the bridge.
Then we will board the bus to be dropped off at the entrance of the famous Brooklyn Bridge. Here we start our discovery walk of lower-town Manhattan which should last approximately 2.5 hours and cover about 4.5 km. You will see: Wall Street, NY Stock Exchange, the Charging Bull, Trinity Church, Battery Park, 9/11 memorial and World Trade Centre.
After our walk you will have free time to explore and do your own thing. This would be a good time to take a boat and visit the Statue of Liberty. You can also explore Chinatown and Little Italy.
Late in the afternoon we would recommend taking the FREE Ferry Cruise to Staten island for wonderful sunset views and photos of NYC. This boat cruise will pass by the Statue of Liberty allowing you to snap that great selfie!
Today is our last day. You have a few hours before we say farewell to New York and head back to Ottawa so head out and make the most of it. Not sure what to do? Ask our tour leader! They are very resourceful and have been to the city many times.
We will depart for Ottawa sometime in the early afternoon.

What our customers say about us:
Round Tours is an amazing company. I have taken their trips skiing, to Montreal, and soon to Toronto. Every time I travel with Round Tours I feel valued and cared for. Carlos and Charlotte seem passionate about what they do, and they truly care that you are having a good time. When visiting Montreal my friend and I were thinking of visiting a museum, but we did not have wifi to check the museums in the area. Charlotte was very kind by personally searching for the best museums and directing us how to get there.This is just one of many examples of how Carlos and Charlotte demonstrate how much they care for you.
The sizing of the tours with Round Tours is absolutely perfect. For the most part all of our groups have been around 50 people, but many times it was less than 50 people. This means that you are able to get a personalized tour of each city. The structure of the tours are good for people who like to do their own thing and for people who want to stay in a group. By providing a loose itinerary with local tour guides, you can truly make the experience unique to your liking. I highly recommend Round Tours to anyone thinking of traveling outside of Ottawa. It is especially good for international students, because the quality of the trips are amazing and the trips are priced nicely. Round Tours is an amazing company with a truly nice and caring staff.
