Today we’re excited to offer the first-ever tubing and wine-tasting Groupon. As you already know, tubing is the only wine-pairing superior to cheese. For $79, Urban Escape will help you escape Manhattan via inner tubes and travel down the Delaware to a local vineyard for delicious wine tasting.
At 8 a.m. you will meet at the corner of Broadway and 96th where you will be outfitted with tubes and life jackets, get on a bus for a 90-minute ride, jump into the Delaware River, and begin floating gently downstream. Midway through your journey, you will stop for an outdoor BBQ lunch, included in your Groupon. In case you experience playful splashing along the way, after completing the tubing journey, there will be time to change into dry clothes or to trade your wet clothes to the natives for corn. Urban Escape will then drive you to Sandcastle Winery, located on a private road with epic views of the Delaware River, where you’ll have a private wine tasting with the owner and sample 10 delicious wines paired with chocolates, wasabi peas, and other delectable snacks. After everyone has had their fill of wine and adventure, you can reluctantly accept Urban Adventure’s ride back to the city, or continue your adventure forever.
Tubing, like wine tasting, tastes better with friends, so get a group together and choose between August 9 or 23. Each date is comfortably limited to 135 people, so get your crew together before we sell out!
Urban Escapes has been featured on CNN:
- At the end of the day, sweaty, sore and smiling, I realized why Urban Escapes NYC was defying the recession. With a plethora of affordable outdoor excursions, cheerful guides and a youthful mindset, the company was the ideal destination for an urban professional with a slim wallet.
Additional customer testimonials are available on Urban Escape’s website. Here’s what people are saying: > * I highly recommend Urban Escapes for all levels of adventure seekers! I went without knowing anyone and my hiking experience was great from start to finish. The guides were fun to hang out with, attentive to every person, helpful in getting you through rock scrambles, and just all round nice people. I’ve already told all of my friends about Urban Escapes. – Nina A., NYC > * I had a great time on the trip, Maia knows how to lead a fun and safe expedition. Looking forward to my next one! – Leonard F., Jersey City > * My first trip with Urban Escapes was divine. An incredibly easy and fun way to leave the city and get outdoors.
