About The City Rambler Tour:
On your next visit to New York City join three professional storytellers on a journey around the sights and attractions that define Lower Manhattan. 'City Rambler' is a unique twist on the classic walking tour in that it doesn't have to be completed in one go. While the full experience lasts 3 hours guests can pause at two optional "walk-off / walk-on" points, meaning you can explore a location for longer and at your own pace.
After putting on your personal audio headset, your ramble begins across the street from Trinity Church, the grave site of Alexander Hamilton, where you will be met by the first of three storytellers. They may be an aristocrat or a street urchin from the 1700s.
Continuing on you will meet your second storyteller at Pier 15, where New York's maritime heritage comes to life. From pirates to oyster farmers, the seaport was where commerce thrived and scores of immigrants arrived on US shores.
As this first segment comes to a close you may want to spend a bit more time exploring the waterfront and its many retail shops and restaurants. Pause for a browse if you want, then when you're ready to continue, meet the next tour group at that same point you left off.
Arriving at the 9/11 Memorial grounds, your third storyteller will share with you all that has occurred throughout modern times, and perhaps what the future holds for the city that is constantly reinventing itself.
There will be a second opportunity to walk-off at Oculus near the 9/11 Memorial grounds. You may wish to enjoy the views from the observatory atop One World Trade Centre or spend time at the 9/11 Museum. When ready, rejoin the tour and experience the third and final segment of the tour, which will conclude in Battery Park.
