This tour includes a pass on our double decker buses that cover the major sightseeing spots in Manhattan PLUS a ticket for the ferry to the Statue of Liberty / Ellis Island AND admission ticket to either the Empire State Building or the Top of the Rock Observation Deck.

The Visa Black Card
Traveling with kids to the Big Apple sometimes requires creative planning, especially when looking for something unique to do that doesn’t involve endless hours of walking as tourist trips often do.  Since children are often easily bored, you will need something that can hold a child’s attention but that will not last all day.  Luckily, there are plenty of options in the city that can fit both your interests and your schedule. 

Tours run every half hour from 11:00 am – 3:30 pm so you are able to pick the time that works best for your group.  I will point out, however, that helicopter tours in New York book up fast.  It is best to plan well in advance of your trip so your dates of choice will not be sold out.  You definitely don’t want to miss out on this once in a lifetime experience!

Visit www.NYTours.us for more info on this tour and many amazing others.

 

A Unique Spin on Traditional Tours

Monday, January 19th, 2009

Ready to roll but tired of taking the same old wheels? Try out one of the many nontraditional tour offerings on your next trip to New York, San Diego, or Los Angeles.  Get out of the habit of the same old thing and start the new year off with a new mode of transportation.  With Reserve123, the options are endless.

On your next trip to New York, consider seeing the city in the comfort of a classic convertible.  You will be the talk of the town and will make heads turn as you cruise through the city streets with the top down.  On the Deluxe Private New York Tour, which runs from May through October and is taken in a classic convertible, your 1975 Chevrolet Caprice will take you to the historic West Village, across the Brooklyn Bridge, and to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade where you can catch the perfect view of the Manhattan skyline.

Another convertible tour that is available is the Classic Car Tour from Los Angeles.  This is a great option for trips in the winter since temperatures in Los Angeles don’t often dip much lower than 50°F.  L.A. also enjoys about 263 sunny days a year and rain is less frequent than in other parts of the country.  You will ride in a classic Cadillac convertible as your tour guide makes sure you get to see all the right spots and learn more about the area to get the most out of your trip.

For a fancy twist on the limousine, take the Los Angeles Limo Tour and see all the best places inTinseltown.  Your vehicle, which is actually a 24-passenger super stretch Hummer, comes equipped with color TV and VCR, complimentary bar, stereo and CD player, wraparound leather seats, and a sun or moon  roof.  You can also request free champagne, a red carpet, fish tanks, smoke machines, and more so they are perfect for a special occasion or a typical day or night on the town.  Of course, with this tour your day will be anything but typical!

A unique spin on the limo ride concept is the VIP Street Rod Limo Grand Tour of Los Angeles.  Your tour will begin in a 1923 Ford T Roadster Limo, which will take you to the most exclusive shops in the area on the famous Rodeo Drive.  The tour also features celebrity homes in Beverly Hills and Bel-Air including those of Al Pacino, Madonna, and George Clooney.

When you are looking for your day to take a spooky turn, check out the Deluxe Haunted Ghost Tour in San Diego.  Your “Ghost Coach” will take you on a 90-minute night tour of haunted San Diego.  Of course it wouldn’t be much of a ghost tour if you stayed in the coach the whole time, so be prepared to get out and stretch your legs as you walk to documented haunted spots.  You will also gain admission to the William Heath Davis House, located in the Gaslamp Quarter.  The tour is completely guided, and as you can imagine it is packed with theatrics.

No matter what kind of nontraditional transportation you choose, your tour will be filled with excitement, incredible scenery, and priceless information.  Reserve your tickets online and save $5 on each adult ticket.

Top Of The Rock – New York Rockefeller Center Observation Deck

Sunday, February 10th, 2008

Get tickets to the observation deck at the Rockefeller Center in New York and enjoy an amazing view of The City.

Top Of The Rock is an experience in history and scenery that culminates with unparalleled views of New York City from the newly renovated Observation Deck on the 70th floor of 30 Rockefeller Plaza, in the heart of midtown Manhattan at Rockefeller Center.

There’s a certain peace at 70 stories above the city, and Top Of The Rock’s Observation Deck was conceived with the express purpose of keeping that peace uninterrupted.  Panels of fully transparent safety glass  are the only thing between our visitors and the city.  They are crystal clear for unobstructed, open-air viewing, and the reserved-ticket system is designed to ensure the deck is never overcrowded.

The view itself is unique and astonishing, unobstructed for 360 degrees and stretching for miles in every direction.  It includes a panorama of Central Park and the northern half of Manhattan that can’t be found anywhere else.  New York’s other landmarks are visible as well, including the Chrysler Building, Times Square, the Hudson River, the East River, the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Statue of Liberty.  It is, quite simply, the most spectacular view in New York City.

And because Top Of The Rock’s Observation Deck is open 365 days a year, it is the ideal perch to watch the seasons unfold or simply to take in an amazing sunset.

Top Of The Rock is more than just a pretty view.  It is designed for guests of all ages.  In addition to the interactive exhibits on the mezzanine level with its hands-on activities, the stunning views at the summit can be enjoyed by everyone.  To remember the trip, the Top Of The Rock shop features exclusive merchandise not found anywhere else.

To celebrate its partnership with Top Of The Rock, Swarovski has created two spectacular pieces of art that are as dazzling as the views from our Observation Deck: “Radiance”, a massive crystal geode wall on the first level of the Observation Deck, shimmers with 600 custom glass and crystal panels spanning a width of 180 feet; and “Joie”, a stunning crystal waterfall chandelier that is the centerpiece of Top Of The Rock’s entrance on West 50th Street.

Target® adds its own cool and imaginative style to the Observation Deck with the Target® Breezeway, a cutting edge, interactive multi-media experience that puts a human touch on motion-detection technology, using the movements of our visitors as its catalyst.  Target® has also designed a number of exclusive, Target®-branded products for the Top Of The Rock shops.  The Target® merchandise includes personal, business and travel accessories, as well as a collection of cashmere hats, gloves and scarves.

The story behind Top Of The Rock begins in 1933…John D. Rockefeller, Jr. first opened the Observation Deck atop 30 Rockefeller Plaza more than 70 years ago to give something back to New Yorkers and their guests from around the worlds a place to appreciate and celebrate the city.  The Observation Deck’s original design was inspired by the decks of the great ocean liners of the era, complete with deck chairs, gooseneck fixtures and vents inspired by a ship’s stacks.  A trip to the Observation Deck was like setting sail in the heart of the world’s most dynamic city.Now, for the first time in 20 years, this breathtaking vantage point is being re-introduced to the people of New York and the world.  As the steward of John D. Rockefeller, Jr.’s dream, Tishman Speyer is proud to present the new Top Of The Rock Observation Deck, as envisioned by the architect Michael Gabellini.  When Mr. Gabellini re-imagined the new Observation Deck that is now Top Of The Rock, he envisioned the same simple elegance and astonishing beauty of the original, amplified by modern materials and engineering.

Gabellini blended modern materials with the deck’s original elements. like the custom “shot-sawn” limestone and cast-aluminum fleurs-de-lis that are signatures of the original design.  The result is Art Deco grace combined with state-of-the-art technology and simplicity.

Rockefeller Center has been a New York City landmark for nearly 75 years.  The Center is located in the heart of Manhattan and houses broadcast studios, dozens of shops and restaurants, an outdoor ice-skating rink, Radio City Music Hall, and, of course, one of the most famous Christmas trees in the world.
