Our itinerary, day by day
Depart Ottawa in the morning and head to the USA. After a couple of hours we will be crossing the border to the USA. Enjoy the scenery of New York State as roll down the american highways. We will do a couple of stops along the way to eat some food and stretch our legs. Arrive in NYC in the afternoon and start by exploring Times Square, one of the most famous squares in the world. After a couple of hours we will meet at the same spot where we were dropped off to head to the hotel.
This morning we will head to Manhattan and go for a group walk in mid-town: There is lots to see: Times square, Empire State building, flat iron building, iconic Chrysler building, Madam Tussauds museum, Rockefeller centre, 5th avenue, Grenwich Village and so much more.
We will leave you lots of free time to walk around and discover on your own.In the evening we will meet at Times Square again and board the bus, which will take us back to our hotel for a well deserved rest.
Board the bus in the morning and let's go to Brooklyn! We will start our walk at the Brooklyn Promenade (beautiful views of Manhattan are certain!)
We will then cross the famous Brooklyn Bridge and head to Manhattan's lower town. Here you will be able to see: Wall Street, NY Exchange Centre, the charging Bull, Trinity Church, Pier 17, Battery Park, 9/11 memorial and World Trade Centre, Chinatown, little Italy and much more. Again you will have free time to explore and do your own thing.
Late in the afternoon we recommend meeting at Battery Park and taking a 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!
We will be picked up at Battery Park at night to return to our hotel
Check out of our hotel in the morning, put your bags in the bus and hop in once again; our destination: Central Park and its surroundings. Visit famed Central Park Zoo, Strawberry Fields and the memorial to John Lennon, The Pond, The MET, The Museum of Natural History, The Metropolitan Opera,Columbus Circle Holiday market and much more.

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.
