New York may no longer be the immigration hub of the country that it was in centuries gone by, but it is definitely among the most international of American cities, and no other city on earth can offer the kind of “melting pot” feel one gets from walking down the streets of Manhattan. As such, it is only appropriate that there be a top-notch tour of New York’s main attractions in an array of languages, designed for our international visitors!
CitySights goes above and beyond its already-amazing offering of specialty tours of New York, bringing you the Multilingual Upper and Lower Manhattan Tour! Choose a tour in a language that makes you feel most at home, or perhaps you’re interested in challenging yourself with a test of your listening ability in a second language! CitySights offers tours in German, French, Italian, and Spanish.
What will you see on your Multilingual Tour? A licensed New York Tour guide will escort you around the island of Manhattan, pointing out and giving information on the following sights:
Tours last around four and a half hours. Ride in comfort in one of CitySights’ climate controlled motorcoaches; perfect for staying warm on those cold or rainy days when you really don’t want to be outside walking around the city and relying on public transportation. Not sure how you feel about taking a bus tour? CitySights Multilingual Upper and Lower Manhattan Tour is an efficient way to see all of Manhattan’s many sights in a very reasonable period of time, complete with the unique insights of a very knowledgeable guide. You’ll walk away with not only some great pictures and memories, but having learned quite a bit about the history, culture and beauty of the greatest city in the world. Welcome to New York!
