Thousands of tourists hit the streets of New York every day, but the majority of them visit the same attractions time and time again. Now an alternative tour company is offering tourists a different experience of the city.
After searching the web for the best vacation rentals in New York, you’ll probably be looking for the best spots to visit while you’re there. BQE Tours is targeting those tourists who want to see what the city offers beyond the traditional attractions. Their tour guides head further afield than Manhattan, including the boroughs of Brooklyn and Queens.
This gives tourists a more personalized experience. Tours are limited to just 12 people, but they often set off with just a handful of tourists. This enables you to engage with the guides and the locals to make it a more worthwhile experience for everyone. While en route, you’ll get to learn about the heritage of the area, sample some of the local treats, and meet the people who actually live there.
There are four different tours for visitors to choose from. Two of these take place in the DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge) neighborhood. Here you can join the art and culture tour, coffee and wine tour, or the discovery tour. Other tours include the Long Island City tour and the Williamsburg Tour.
With these new BQE Tours, you can step off the traditional New York tourist trail and experience exactly what the locals see.
