New York Tours

You’ll need help to see it all

There’s so much of New York to explore, you might want some help. More than 1,000 tour operators are ready to assist. Whether you want a door-to-door package or prefer to explore on your own, the state’s many wonders will unfold on driving tours, bus tours, water tours and walking tours.

Bus tours

A bus tour may be the easiest way to sample the state’s hot spots without the hassle of driving or route planning. Buses are easy on your feet and colorful guides add some zing as you tour historic sites, natural wonders, casinos, wine trails and most any other theme you can imagine. If you want to ride the cutting edge, The Ride million-dollar party bus motors you through NYC’s top sights in stadium seating with 3,000 mood-enhancing lights, an IMAX-theater-style sound system and 40 video screens.

Driving tours

If you want to stay behind the wheel, try a self-guided road trip through the Hudson Valley or along Chautauqua’s Amish Trail. Long Island’s Gold Coast Mansions make an eye-popping itinerary, or choose a whale-watching or lighthouse tour on the island.

Water tours

On the water, you’ll have to choose from thousands of islands and countless lakes and streams. Much of our Thousand Islands Region can only be reached by boat and typical cruises range one to three hours in length. Choose a modern glass-topped catamaran, triple-decker cruise boat or paddle-wheel riverboat to explore Alexandria Bay and Clayton in narrated outings on every theme.

Stretching the width of our state, the New York State Canal System still fascinates travelers. A familiar sight on these waters is The Colonial Belle. Come aboard in Fairport near Rochester to see and learn the rich history along the scenic Erie Canal, including exciting lock-throughs.

Niagara Falls tours

Niagara Falls lures 14 million tourists each year and many come by tour bus to explore the falls from every side, including under and over. A Maid of the Mist boat tour voyages to the Cave of the Winds, Whirlpool State Park, Bridal Veil Falls, Goat Island and Prospect Point.

Wine tours

Wine trails beckon thirsty travelers all year long to the Niagara Escarpment, Finger Lakes, Hudson River and Long Island. While many prefer to follow the trails by car, a bus tour can alleviate your need for a designated driver and free you to roam tasting rooms without a care.

Bike tours

The Hudson Valley is biking heaven along picturesque country roads past horse farms and tiny hamlets. Looking to escape the city? Try a mountain bike tour through amazing parks, past endless vistas and glittering lakes. Outfits like Bike Tours New York can show you New York’s top hidden corners in tours from expert to easy. Or stick to the roads in a bike tour to top-rated wineries in any of the state’s five wine-producing regions from Long Island to Niagara.

NYC wildlife tours

Tour services like Animal Tourism can point New Yorkers to the best wildlife viewing near the Big Apple, both in the wild and at wildlife sanctuaries. If you’d rather stick to the animal life on city streets, try a Gray Line double-decker bus tour of NYC, or lace up for one of the city’s countless themed walking tours.
