Experience three of New York’s most iconic landmarks—the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, and 9/11 Memorial Museum—in one day. A guide provides historical background for each location, and then gives you free time to explore at your own pace. While most tours are nonstop, you get to enjoy a lunch break (own expense) before joining the guide for tailored walking tour of Lower Manhattan and the 9/11 Memorial.

You can explore NYC’s Theater District on your own, but you could miss out on a lot of the important details. This Disney on Broadway walking tour is led by a guide who works in the industry and shows you around the area, while letting you in on some very behind-the-scenes info. Plus, you’ll also gain exclusive access to the New Amsterdam Theatre’s prop and costume studio where props from popular Disney shows are stored.
