For me New York is one of the most fascinating places I have ever been to. Not only is it the largest city in the United States, but also one of the oldest settlements that dates back to the 17th century. The history is what is clearly seen everywhere around New York with many, many interesting locations to see.
There are at least a few ways to see The Big Apple. Organized bus trips are very popular, but there are alternatives to those New York City bus tours. By checking out the offers of various companies, you will see something very original about the way some company organize trips for their customers. To begin with, there are no buses involved at all. Often, the representatives from such companies will meet you in the lobby of a hotel where you stay, or any other place and will take you on New York sightseeing the way it is meant to be: by subway. Why is it by subway? Simply because it is the fastest type of transportation in the city and this is how real New Yorkers commute. During a bus tour you will only get to see the Big Apple from a distance while being surrounded by a lot of people. Personally, I believe that trips should be personalized to suit the needs of yours and your family or friends.
