New York is one of those huge cities, where you have thousands of things to see and do. Surely on your first trip you will focus on Manhattan, the place that brings together the most well-known and visited places, although we recommend that you also approach some of the many multi-cultural districts that the city has and that is worth knowing as Brooklyn , Harlem or Queens.
To meet them you can do some excursions in New York, like the famous Contrast Tour or fly over Manhattan by helicopter. If you have several days, another option is to do a tour outside the city, and although you do not believe it, in one day we have many tours and excursions that are worthwhile such as Niagara Falls or Washington DC .
We have made a list of what we believe are the 10 best tours and excursions in New York in Spanish.
1. Contrast Tour
The Contrast Tour is the most famous excursion and one of the best tours and excursions in New York in Spanish. Above all, it is recommended if it is the first time you travel to the Big Apple to be able to have a first contact with the Harlem, Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn areas, which are further away from the typical Manhattan route. If you book the New York Contrast Tour, they will pick you up at the hotel or at a specific meeting point at the time of booking with a van or small bus, depending on the influx of people with whom they will take you to Harlem, Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn while they explain to you on the way the history of each of the districts, their curiosities and anecdotes with a guide in Spanish. The tour lasts approximately 5 hours and at the end it gives you the possibility of staying in the Brooklyn Bridge area, a perfect option to get to know the area for free and why not, approach Grimaldi's to taste a pizza.
We did the New York Contrast Tour on Saturday, to be able to see the atmosphere in Williamsburg, since this is the sacred day of Orthodox Jews and we thought it was a added to everything I already offered this excursion in New York.
Another quieter option is to book the VIP Contrast tour that takes place in a minibus with a maximum of 15 people.
3. Helicopter Tour
This is one of the tours we have the best memories of our trip to New York in 11 days. Although the flight lasts about 15 or 20 minutes we can assure you that you will enjoy spectacular views of Manhattan, the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty. Moreover, we assure you that you will not have eyes or camera to capture everything that is feel from up there. After our experience, we recommend doing the helicopter tour in New York at noon, when the sun is as high as possible and thus not be able to face it in order to have the best views and also take better photos. The New York heliport is located in the southern part of the island, on pier 6, very close to the financial zone, so a good combination would be to visit the area in the morning, and then do the tour at noon.
