Make the most of New York!

This tour will tick off some key items on your visit NYC checklist. Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central, check. Amazing local food shops that only locals know about, check. Visits to some of the best craft beer breweries in NYC’s booming craft beer scene, check.  End your day in New York with new friends, a full stomach, and feeling a little buzzed. Double check. 

We’ll start the tour at Grand Central Terminal, an amazing architectural icon and one of the busiest transit hubs in the world. We’ll tour the building and give you all the inside knowledge. From there we’ll head west through Midtown, stopping at local markets and shops as we go. Some can’t be seen from the street, some are three floors up an unmarked staircase, and some aren’t even restaurants, but they have great food nonetheless.

Along the way, you’ll see 5th Avenue and iconic shopping, Rockefeller Center and the underground city below it, and finally, Times Square, crossroads of the world. We’ll show you all the hidden details and teach you how to navigate the crowds in this busy neighborhood.

From there we’ll hop on the subway for just a few stops to get to Long Island City Queens, just across the East River from Midtown. There we will visit three different craft brewers that are a part of the booming craft beer scene here in NYC. We’ll also grab some NYC pizza to go with our beer.

Our beer expert guide will teach you all about the different styles of beer and help navigate your choices as you hop from tap room to tap room. You’ll also meet the people behind the beer and get tours of the brew houses.

At the end of the tour, you can hop back on the subway and be back in Midtown in five minutes or spend the rest of the night with new friends at one of the breweries.
