Need To Know
About Manhattan and Beyond Tours
Lyall Croft loves research almost as much as he loves cities. He put his two passions together and founded Manhattan and Beyond Tours. Here, guests are led around NYC, in the style of their choosing, by licensed guides, including Lyall himself. Some of the tour options include:
Private Tours: If you're looking for a more intimate overview of NYC, book a private tour. Guides accommodate tours to their customers' sightseeing bucket lists
Bike Tours: To get a broader view of Manhattan, guests can opt for a bike tour. On the Central Park Tour (also offered as a walking tour), guests zoom by greenery while a guide points out and leads participants to points of interest in the park, such as Strawberry Fields and the zoo. Meanwhile, the Manhatten Bike Tour goes through Chinatown, the Lower East Side, Greenwich Village, Battery Park, the 9/11 Memorial, and Wallstreet on safe bike paths
Specialized Walking Tours: Guests looking for something a little more unique can check out either the Heroes of Central Park Tour or the Wacky Washington Square Tour. The first offers guests the option to stroll by statues in Central Park while a guide provides backstories to the statues and their artists. In Wacky Washington Square, guides share stories of old from Greenwich Village while visiting landmarks and explain how this area influenced Bob Dylan, Gertrude Vanderbilt, and ee Cummings
