All New York Tours to do as a couple or family

During a trip, each of us have preferences. Some of us like to go on an "adventure" with a backpack on, others want to take it easy and ask for "comfort" and "piece of mind".
My strongest advice is to plan ahead when you're going to New York City! You'll get the best rates for you flight and hotel, you'll have time to compare the different activities and choose the ones you want to do... There's a lot of tours, Pass, and activities to do in NYC. In this post I help you find the avtivities that better suits you. You can book book them online before your departure and enjoy the city without any stress!

Why should you book your activities in advance?

Instead of paying for these activities in Dollars, for some of you you'll be paying in Euros.I'm not teaching you anything, but it's always easier to monitor your budget without complex calculations to figure out on the last minute to know how much things cost in Euros. Then you won't need to bring too much cash in order to avoid once again exchange fees.

Besides, if you don't want to blow up your budget during your trip in NY, it's always better to pay your activities before you go and know what are you up to financially.

Regardless of where you're coming from, a practical element when booking in advance: just show up with your voucher at the main entrance of your visit/attraction/museum/landmark then handout your voucher without waiting in lines, a huge plus especially during high season when lines tend to be very long. 🙂

What to do in new York City?

There are many tours of the city available in Manhattan and outside. Whether it's from Downtown or Harlem, day or night, on a bus or on a boat around Manhattan. The choice is pretty big so here's a list of great tips "Tours Edition". There are a number of Tour Operator available, I have compiled the most known and trusted in New York, and personally tested 🙂
On top of it, there's a discount if you book your tickets online which adds a little more to this great tip.
