What You'll Get
The most common way to explore history is through tedious academic readings that require hours of page turning and cumbersome eyelid props. Take a speed-pass through the past with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get a three-hour bus tour from Real Bronx Tours (a $45 value). Tours depart from Manhattan's Winter Garden Theatre (Seventh Avenue between 50th and 51st Streets) on weekends at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30pm.
Real Bronx Tours unlocks the history and diversity of the famed Bronx neighborhood, home to young John F. Kennedy, Babe Ruth's stardom, and the rumored birthplace of hip-hop. Tours leisurely saunter through the borough, stopping at notable locations such as the new Yankee Stadium, Arthur Avenue (Little Italy), and the front stoop where a young Jennifer Lopez once mimed Hamlet. Avid sightseers can exercise their peepers in the renovated Mott Haven historic district, The Bronx Zoo, The Bronx Museum, City Island, and the mansions of Fieldston.
This neighborhood safari is lead by the knowledgeable Real Bronx Tour guides, many of whom have worked with top touring company CitySights and are graduates of local hero Grandmaster Flash's University of Dropped Beats.
