It is also recognized for its historic role as a place of exchange of cultural values over more than 2,000 years, particularly since the 12th century due to commercial links with Britain and the Low Countries.

From its medieval quarters to the Classical splendour of the Golden Age in the 18th Century, you will be able to discover a city emerging from a long face lift of over 5 years of work.

Our visit offers to combine historic discovery with regional and typical "delicacies" punctuated by three stops at specialized producers:

Tasting of ewe cheese with jam of cherries from Pyrenean mountains
Tasting of cannelé a very local sweet specialty at Baillardran,
And of course a "wine tasting" in a bistro…

The 18th century gave the city its outstanding "Grand Theatre", a national opera house built in 1781, and the Allées de Tourny, as well as the remarkable waterfront buildings and the Place de la Bourse (formerly the Place Royale), a quarter over 4 kilometres in length which serves as the backdrop for the port’s trading activities.

Bordeaux -Saint Emilion Wine Tour - 8 hours
In the morning, departure with your English speaking driver guide to Saint Emilion.
 
Surrounded by its vineyards, the city offers ancient ramparts, monuments and narrow streets. The village and the vineyards have been classed as a World Heritage Site by the Unesco in 1999.

“Grape production was introduced into this fertile region of Aquitaine by the Romans and was intensified during the Middle Age. The area of Saint-Émilion benefited from its position on the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostella and several churches, monasteries and hospices were built there from the XIth century onwards. It was granted its own jurisdictional status during the period of English rule in the XIIth century. This is an exceptional landscape entirely given over to grape-production and whose towns and villages are home to outstanding historic monuments.” (Unesco Cit.)

Centuries after the Latin poet Ausonius, the hermit Emilion found here peace and tranquility, which were necessary for his meditation. He discovered a grotto watered by a natural spring in the rocky centre of what is now the town bearing his name, where he lived until his death.

Private guided tour of the principal sights of the medieval town: the Emilion Hermitage, the Tour du Roy built in the 13th century by Richard the Lion heart, the collegiate church and its 14th century cloister and, above all, the exceptional monolithic church and its catacombs dug out of the limestone cliff between the 9th and the 11th centuries.

The Museum of Fine Arts takes a journey through the general history of art from the 12th century to the present day.

The collection combines classical art, contemporary art (Bacon, Menz and Tàpies) and creations by Basque artists (Regoyos, Zuloaga and Echevarría), as well as a small display of applied arts.The collection contains over 6,000 works, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, engravings and decorative arts.
 
If anything defines this modernist Campos Eliseos Theatre building designed by architect Alfredo Acebal in 1902, it is its beautiful art nouveau façade, designed by the Basque-French decorator Jean Batiste Darroguy. Because of this unique façade this theatre, a listed monument,  has always been known as "The Chocolate Box".
 
The Alhóndiga majestic wine warehouse in the Modernist style, the work of the architect Ricardo Bastida, has been restored thanks to an ambitious project by Bilbao City Council entrusted to the multi-talented Philippe Starck . Playing with the structure of the original building, the complex has been transformed into a huge cultural unit divided into three thematic buildings.
 
The Ribera Market expressionist building, the work of the architect Pedro Ispizua, is a must-visit in the capital of Bizkaia, both due to the traditional commercial importance of the produce market and for the architectural importance of its premises. 
 
The Basilica of Begoña is the patron saint of Bilbao and is a work of Sancho Martínez de Arego, and it is built on the site where the Virgin appeared in a vision in the early sixteenth century, and it is mainly Gothic, but mixes several styles. The Basilica is a must for many citizens of Bilbao, who come daily to this sanctuary to venerate the Virgin of Begoña, patron saint of Bizkaia, known locally as the ‘Amatxu’ (Mother).

This city, also known as Donostia, lies along a white sandy bay between the Urgull and Igeldo hills. Fishermen's houses, a smart suburb and modern districts make it one of the most attractive cities on the Cantabrian coast.
 
In the oldest part of San Sebastián, the churches of San Vicente and Santa María del Coro await you, the former Gothic and the latter Renaissance-Baroque. An old Dominican convent is nowadays the San Telmo Museum, whose archaeological and ethnographic collections, together with its paintings, are worth a leisurely visit. These busy streets lead you to the porticoed Plaza de la Constitución. Among its many balconies - numbered and painted white, betraying its origin as a bullring - stands the old Neoclassical City Hall, converted into the Municipal Library.
La Alameda del Boulevard leads into the Romantic city, which emerged after the old walls were demolished. One the banks of the Urumea you can make out the Victoria Eugenia Theatre and the María Cristina Hotel, built in Neoplateresque style.
 
La Concha Promenade is unquestionably one of San Sebastián’s most characteristic features. It is a seaside promenade bordering the famous Concha Bay, shell-shaped as indicated by its name in Spanish, with two beaches (Ondarreta and the Concha) and an island (Santa Clara). Added to its unbeatable views of the sea, this lively promenade makes its way past iconic buildings like the Hotel Londres, the Palacio Miramar and the Perla Spa.
 
What is today San Sebastián's City Hall was home to the city’s Gran Casino from the time it was opened on 1st July 1897 until it was closed in 1924 with the prohibition of gambling. Its roulette tables and Dance Hall, currently the Plenary Hall, provided entertainment for politicians, writers and artists in the Belle Epoque period.

Bilbao's 700 years of history are present in buildings and constructions that will pleasantly surprise visitors. The historic quarter is listed as a Conservation Area and forms the best point of reference for understanding the city's history. It is an example of urban regeneration, with more than 400 shops of all kinds. The city centre is a showcase for the best of 20th century architecture, with buildings that have housed the most important firms and institutions of Bilbao for over a century. This impressive collection of buildings has been created by the best local architects of each period.
But Bilbao has not finished being built: in addition to the genius of the local architects, the most prestigious foreign firms have contributed finished projects to the grandeur of the city, with some still in progress, by architects of the stature of Foster, Gehry, Calatrava, Isozaki, Pelli, and others.
The Cathedral of Santiago, is the oldest building in Bilbao.This Gothic church was built on top of an old hermitage that dates back to the Santiago pilgrimages. The cathedral has three naves, covered with ribbed vaults. Although the building is essentially Gothic, the actual façade and the tower were built in the nineteenth century. The choir stalls and the cloister are exquisite with the latter ornately Gothic in style. The crypt was built in the old hermitage, and still has the hermitage's original walls. There are two doorways, one which is Renaissance in style and the other Neoclassical.
The baroque Yohn Palace, known as ‘The Bourse’, has a beautiful carved lintel around the door, which is extremely rare in urban architecture in Bizkaia, and three interesting exterior walls, the one facing Santa María street being the most impressive. 
The Arriaga Theatre is a very beautiful building. Inspired in the Paris Opera, it was the work of the municipal architect Joaquín Rucoba and was opened in 1890. In 1902 it was named in honour of the Bilbao musician Juan Crisóstomo Arriaga, known as the Spanish Mozart because of his talent.
The Bilbao Guggenheim Museum has become the cultural and tourist driving force of the Basque Country. This spectacular building, built by Frank O. Gehry in 1997, is completely covered with titanium sheets. It houses its own private collection, in addition to sharing with New York and Venice the world's largest and most impressive private collection of modern and contemporary art.

The castle of Sao George is located on one of the seven hills of Lisbon, to the east of the Baixa. In the context of the Christian Reconquista the castle and the city of Lisbon were retaken from the Moors by King Alfonso Henriques with the help of Northern European crusaders taking part on the Second Crusade. The castle was dedicated to Saint George in the late 14th century by King John I.
 
Lisbon's ancient cathedral was built by Portugal's first king on the site of an old mosque in 1150 for the city's first bishop, the English crusader Gilbert of Hastings. From outside (with two bell towers and a splendid rose window) it resembles a medieval fortress, while inside it appears predominantly Romanesque, with a Gothic choir and ambulatory.
 
Jewish people were the advisors of Kings and Queens, doctors and even some of the explorers, geographers and mathematicians. The tour will start with a general introduction to the Jewish presence of the city, followed by a nice walk in the city centre passing by the site of the 1506 Jewish Massacre near the Church of Sao Domingos and the most well preserved Alfama Jewish and medieval Quarter. Alfama is a village within a city still made up of narrow streets, tiny squares, churches, and whitewashed houses with tile panels and wrought-iron balconies adorned with pots of flowers, drying laundry, and caged birds. 
 
With the abolition of the Inquisition in 1821, families of Sephardic Jews decided to return to Portugal. Most of these Jews were merchants from Morocco and Gibraltar. These were people with a cultural level greatly above average. They could read, speak and write in liturgical Hebrew, Arabic, English and Hakitia, the Moroccan judeo-hispanic dialect.
 
We will continue our tour with a visit to the only Synagogue of Lisbon (Shaaré Tikvá), passing by the Commerce Square, the place where thousands of Jews were forced to be baptized in the 15th century.

Fado (translated as destiny
or fate) is a music genre which can be traced from the 1820s in Portugal, but
probably with much earlier origins. It is characterized by mournful tunes and
lyrics, often about the sea or the life of the poor. The music is usually linked
to the Portuguese word saudade, a word with no accurate English translation.
(It is a kind of longing, and conveys a complex mixture of mainly nostalgia,
but also sadness, pain, happiness and love). Some enthusiasts claim that Fado's
origins are a mixture of African slave rhythms with the traditional music of
Portuguese sailors and Arabic influence.

Lisbon: Full Day Excursion to Queluz, Sintra, Cascais and Estoril

The Queluz Palace was begun
in 1747 by the Infante Dom Pedro (later to become Dom Pedro III) on the basis
of a former country mansion of the Marquises of Castelo Rodrigo. The Palace
(classified as a National Monument at that time began to be adapted for use
as a summer seat of the Royal Family.

 

The main body of the Palace,
erected by 1758, with its low sinuous forms and harmonious intimist decoration,
was completed after the marriage of the Infante Dom Pedro to Dona Maria Francisca,
the future Dona Maria I (1760), at which time the opulent interior halls were
embellished, as were the luxurious Palace gardens, which were endowed with Baroque
fountains, statues and places for recreation.

 

Sintra is one of the most
delightful places to be found in Portugal. With its extensive range of green
bills with its crags - the Serra de Sintra - so picturesquely situated and offering
stupendous views of the coastline with its impressive beauty, Sintra is indeed
"a garden of the earthly paradise". The artistic heritage of the Old Town, described
by Byron as "the most pleasing in Europe", also include valuable archaeological
remains, particularly from the Roman period, ancient manor houses, churches
of personalised artistic value and characteristic villages.

 

Cascais was a small fishing
port throughout early history as it lies protected from nature's elements at
the mouth of the Rio Tejo. When in 1870 the King, Luís I, chose to convert the
17th Century building of the Citadela into his summer residence Cascais soon
became a very fashionable town and aristocratic palaces and mansions followed.
The Citadel or Fort of Cascais is a 16th century fortress built to protect the
Bay of Cascais. Today, Cascais now boasts smart new Marina with lovely yachts.

 

Just outside the town is
the famous Boca do Inferno in which the sea on rougher days hammers into the
rock and creates a booming noise and a spectacular spray thus creating its name
which in English means "mouth of hell".

 

Estoril town was really
created from the curious needs of the two World Wars. It became a prime location
for European royal exiles forced to leave their own countries. It has been the
residence of King Umberto II of Italy, Juan de Bourbon of Spain, Karl Hapsburg
of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and King Carol of Rumania. The many modest yet
architecturally interesting mansions still remain to indicate their royal owners.
At its height its visitors referred to Estoril as the "Portuguese Riviera".
A Casino with wide surrounding avenues and spacious gardens, a golf course,
all of which soon appeared and then flanked by large hotels and impressive private
homes.

of various bodies built during the course of successive epochs on the so-called
"Chão da Oliva", the Paço da Vila de Sintra is one of the most important examples
of regal architecture in Portugal and for that reason is classified as a National
Monument. This gradual multiplication of buildings, with different styles, is
largely responsible for the enigmatic enchantment of this ancient palace, dominated
by great twin chimneys atop the kitchen that constitute as authentic ex-libris
of Sintra.

In 1148 Dom Afonso Henriques
recaptured the town of Obidos from the Moors. Later in 1282, the King of Portugal
Dom Dinis made a wedding present of the town Obidos to his new wife Dona Isabel.
It is charming small and fortified town that has been carefully preserved. Impressive
18th Century blue tiles line the walls within the southern gate that is appropriately
known as Porta da Vila and acts as the main entrance.

 

Alcobaça is a town that
became notable in the 12th Century when it was the site for the important construction
of Portugal's largest church. In the month of March in 1147 the fledgling King,
Dom Afonso Henriques, defeated the Moors by capturing the town of Santarém.
As a suitable memory to this splendid victory he vowed to build a magnificent
home for the Order of Cistercians. In the church are the tombs of King Pedro
I and his murdered mistress, Inês de Castro and with this is the tragic story
of the liaison between Pedro and his ever-lasting love for Inês.

 

The well-known fishing
village of Nazaré is now a small town and a popular holiday resort with a boulevard,
bars and restaurants. The inhabitants have retained some of their past as can
be still seen in their own particular style of costume and women still wearing
the traditional dress, a black kerchief and the seven flannel skirts.

 

Located in the region of
Leiria, the small town and Basilica of Fatima is one of the most visited Marian
Shrines in the world. Begun in 1928 and consecrated on 7 October 1953, its 15
altars are dedicated to the 15 mysteries of the Rosary.

 

The painting above the high
altar depicts the Message of Our Lady to the little shepherds, prepared by the
Angel of Portugal, through their encounter with Christ in the Eucharist. Scenes
of the apparitions are represented in stained glass, as well as invocations
from the Litany of Our Lady.

 

The Perpetual Adoration
Chapel is situated at the end of the colonnade, on the eastern side, this chapel
for perpetual adoration of the Blessed Sacrament exposed, is a place of silent
prayer and adoration.

Bairro Alto is a picturesque working class quarter dating from the 16th century that has traditionally been the city's bohemian haunt of artists and writers.  Its grid of streets is quiet during the day, but is transformed at night into the city's vibrant nightlife quarter. Behind colorful and graffiti-ridden façades, is a variety of traditional and international restaurants, tourist-packed Fado Houses, and a multitude of bars and alternative shops that stay open until late at night. Neighboring Chiado is an elegant, sophisticated district of theaters, bookshops, old-style cafes, art nouveau jewelry shops and luxurious international names.
 
The church of Sao Roque with the plainest façade in Lisbon has one of the city's richest interiors. Each of the chapels is a masterpiece of Baroque art but the showpiece is the fourth one on the left, the "world's most expensive chapel." 
 
Created through the efforts of Queen Amélia of Orleans and Bragança, wife of King Carlos I, the Royal Coach Museum, as it was then named, was inaugurated on May 23, 1905. The Museum is containing one of the largest collections of royal coaches in the world.
 
The Palace of the Marquesses of Fronteira was built in 1671 as a hunting pavilion to Dom João de Mascarenhas, 1st Marquis of Fronteira, who received his title from King Alfonso VI of Portugal for his loyalty to the House of Braganza in the Portuguese Restoration War. The palace is still located in a very quiet area, near the Monsanto Forest Park. The house and the garden have glazed tiles representing different themes such as battles or monkeys playing trumpets.

The ruins of the Do Carmo Gothic convent &  church are evocative reminders of the devastation left by the 1755 earthquake. At the time of the earthquake it was the largest church in Lisbon, but today the roofless nave open to the sky is all that remains of the arches and rubble that caved in on the congregation as they were attending mass.

After leaving Lisbon, we will drive to Évora by the countryside roads of Alentejo, for a beautiful sightseeing tour by car. In Évora, we will have enough time to walk in its historical center and "feel" the atmosphere of this town. A world of unexpected contrasts awaits you in the unique city of Evora. It has a history more than two thousand years old. You’ll see labyrinthine streets, squares flooded with light, Renaissance fountains, Moorish courtyards and Gothic doorways and turrets. After reaching the walled city our guide will invite you to visit the enigmatic church of St. Francis and its Chapel of the Bones.
 
The tour will continue up the narrow streets of the old town reaching the Giraldo Square where the Inquisition once had its headquarters. You will also have time to explore the millennium old Roman Temple and have a glimpse at the 12th century cathedral. The distant 16th century Évora thrived with culture and tradition in its university as much as it still does today. During a short visit to the century old university courtyard, you will understand why Évora was once the second most important city of Portugal. The Romans created the elegant temple, battlements and baths, and the Moorish “Yeborah” influenced the urban network of the Mouraria district. Conquered in the time of King Afonso Henriques, the city captured the imagination of the kings of Portugal. King João II chose it for the wedding of his successor to the daughter of the Catholic Monarchs. One of the most ostentatious celebrations ever seen in the late Middle Ages. King Manuel I established his court in Évora as did King João III.
 
Nobility accompanied the monarchs and built luxurious palaces, families such as the Counts of Basto and the Dukes of Cadaval settled here. It was at this time that the Royal Palace and large convents were built, such as the Convent of São Francisco. The Royal Palace is an unusual combination of the Gothic style with the decorative influence of Islam, whilst the Convent of São Francisco is one of the finest churches in Portugal. The 16th Century was a golden age for the city. Artists from Flanders, Italy and Spain flocked here to make their mark. Masters of humanities came from Salamanca and Paris to join the University, which was founded in 1553 and still functions today. Due to its historical significance, UNESCO has classified Évora as a World Heritage site.

The Rambla is possibly the most well known avenue and represents a typical postcard of the city. A place for public and sport celebrations, the Rambla is a boulevard that starts in Plaça Catalunya (Barcelona’s commercial area) and ends in the Port, offering a multicoloured picture of people enjoying a walk, live statues, artists, musicians, painters and atmosphere. One of the symbols of the Rambla is the Fountain of Canaletes. Tradition says that visitors who drink from this source will return to Barcelona.

One of the main arteries of the historic quarter, La Rambla, leads to the Mediterranean Sea, and it is one of the best places to catch the rhythm of the city. The visitor is led through its different sections, from the Romanesque church of Santa Anna, to the different stalls, passing gorgeous examples of Baroque and Renaissance architecture on the way and the Boquería Market.
It is worth to stop for a moment and visit the Church of Betlem and the Palau de la Virreina, with permanent exhibitions of interest. A visit to the Market of la Boqueria is advisable to enjoy an incredible contrast between colours and activity, ideal to discover why Mediterranean cuisine is internationally known due to its ingredients.
Walking down the avenue, in direction to the sea, we find the Plà de la Boqueria. Its pavement is decorated with a mosaic of Joan Miró. Very near is the Gran Teatre del Liceu (the Opera House), recently reconstructed after a devastating fire in 1994. Crossing the Rambla we find the Plaça Reial, an interesting porticoed square, ideal to relax and enjoy a meal in one of the many restaurants.
In Nou de la Rambla Street is located the Palau Güell, a beautiful palace of recommended visit where you will be able to appreciate all the creative capacity of Antoni Gaudí. Afterwards the great gothic Shipyards. The Rambla ends in the port, dominated by the Columbus Monument, built in 1888.

Some of the modern facilities are the inheritance from the 1992 Olympics. Their mark can also be seen on the hill at Montjuïc, beside the monumental work from the 1929 World Exhibition. The Plaça d'Espanya, the Magic Fountain, the Palau Nacional and the Olympic Ring are a few of its most important works. The Olympic Stadium, the Calatrava Tower and the Sant Jordi Sports Centre.

La Ribera quarter was in Roman times a place for country homes. In the 6th century, the area was dominated by a Christian necropolis. The first monastery was raised here in the 11th century. In the 13th century it was a busy tradesmen’s district and Passeig del Born was Barcelona’ s main square from the 13th to the 18th centuries. Jousting tournaments, executions and other public entertainments took place in the Middle Ages.
The Santa María del Mar church is one of the best examples of 14th century Catalonian Gothic architecture. It is the work of the architect Berenguer de Montagut and was the templeof the shipowners and merchants in Gothic Barcelona. Seen from the outside, its appearance is solid and robust, dominated by straight lines. The inside consists of three naves, an ambulatory and is without a transept. The amazing height of the central nave with its majestic octagonal columns stands out.
The Palau de la Música Catalana was built between 1905 and 1908 by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner and it is an architectural jewel of Catalan Art Nouveau, the only concert venue in this style to be listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO (4th December 1997), which today represents an essential landmark in the cultural and social life of Catalonia.
 
The Santa Caterina market building was constructed on the former site of the Convent of Santa Caterina, from which it takes its name. The refurbishment of Barcelona’s first covered food market by the architectural practice of Enric Miralles and Benedetta Tagliabue was completed in 2005. The food market revealed a gleaming, undulating and brightly coloured roof designed to be seen from the air. The roof is attached to the building by a wooden structure, and a vast mosaic of coloured ceramic pieces, representing fruit and vegetables, boldly breaks with the traditional look of a market.
 
The Picasso Museum in Barcelona is a clear example of the ties Pablo Picasso had with the city of Barcelona. Here, he not only received sound academic training but also the artistic effervescence that lit the fire and opened the doors towards modernism.
Inaugurated in 1963, the Picasso Museum not only owns the most important and exhaustive collection of the works of art from Pablo Picasso's youth and period of training but also holds temporary exhibitions of other artists related to this artistic figurehead.

Its early city centre, which was surrounded by walls during Roman times, makes up what today is the Gothic and Jewish Quarter. Narrow streets, with quiet squares and attractive corners, are home to an abundant collection of Gothic buildings, both civil and religious. Surrounding Barcelona's impressive gothic Cathedral, medieval palaces emerge, such as Casa dels Canonges and Casa d´Ardiaca. The Plaça del Rei brings together another labyrinth of marvellous buildings, such as the Palau Reial Mayor and the Chapel of Santa Ágata. The Plaça Sant Jaume holds the Palau de la Generalitat (headquarters of the Catalan government) and the City Hall.
The oldest synagogue in Europe dating back to 1306 is in Barcelona. The site of the older Call of Barcelona –the Call Major– is located between l’Arc de Santamon, Call, Bisbe and Sant Sever Streets. In the mid-13th century, the geographic space designated to the Jewish community was amplified. On the outskirts of what is today the Church of Sant Jaume, the Call Menor (Minor) sprouted and thrived.

Its early city centre, which was surrounded by walls during Roman times, makes up what today is the Gothic Quarter. Narrow streets, with quiet squares and attractive corners, are home to an abundant collection of Gothic buildings, both civil and religious. Surrounding Barcelona's impressive gothic Cathedral, situated on the site of a Paleochristian basilica. Construction began during the Romanesque period but was finally completed during the Gothic period, which is the dominant style. The interior naves are at nearly the same height, which causes the impression of being in a single site. The dome base is covered on the inside with handcrafted woodwork. The door from the cloister to the cathedral and the chapel of Santa Lucía are of great interest.
 
The Plaça del Rei brings together another labyrinth of marvellous buildings, such as the Palau Reial Mayor and the Chapel of Santa Ágata. The Plaça Sant Jaume holds the Palau de la Generalitat (headquarters of the Catalan government) and the City Hall.
The urban development of the central area of Barcelona was defined, towards the end of the 19th century, by the Eixample (urban expansion). An extensive grid, with large avenues and chamfered corners, joined the irregular layouts of old districts and outlying towns to the surrounding hills. The emerging Catalonian bourgeoisie chose this place to build its mansions and palaces, following the most daring principles of Modernism. Works by Gaudí, such Casa Milà “La Pedrera”, Casa Batlló and the temple of the Sagrada Familia (the Holy Family) are just a few of the many modernist gems treasured by the city. The Sagrada Familia great expiatory temple: in 1883 the brilliant Gaudí agreed to direct this work, succeeding Francisco de Paula. The artist worked on it until his death. Work to complete this great church still continues today.
One of the main arteries of the historic quarter, La Rambla, leads to the Mediterranean Sea, and it is one of the best places to catch the rhythm of the city. 

Park Güell seems as if it were taken from the pages of a fairytale: strange, eccentric, even dream-like, but undeniably beautiful. A stroll through the park will awaken even the sleepiest imaginations. The peculiar shapes and daring color combinations mixed in with the park’s vegetation create a unique world to which visitors feel irresistibly drawn.

Flamenco is a genuine Spanish art, and to be more exact an genuine Southern Spanish art. It exists in three forms: Cante, the song, Baile, the dance, and Guitarra, guitar playing.

Gypsies are very often named as its fathers, and at least it can be taken for certain that they played an important part in its creation. But also the popular songs and dances of Andalucia have influenced early Flamenco considerably.

Certainly there were other influences, too, as it will not surprise in a country that has been dominated by most diverse cultures and civilizations during its different historical epochs. There were the legendary Tartessos, and seven centuries of Muslim occupation hardly could have passed without leaving traces. All that, directly or indirectly, influenced Flamenco.

The moreneta of Montserrat. The adoration of this Virgin extended all over South America when the monk Bernat Boil accompanied Christopher Columbus to the New World.

 

It is said that an image of the Virgen de Montserrat appeared in a cave in the mountain. Situated 45 kilometres Northwest of Barcelona, the monastery was founded by Abbot Oliba in 1025, although there is evidence that in the year 888, there was a chapel dedicated to the Mother of God. In the 12th century the Romanesque church was built and in 1223, the first European School for child singers. Leon XIII declared the Virgin of Montserrat patron saint of Catalunya. In the year 1500, San Ignacio de Loyola arrived as a pilgrim. The library has over 300,000 books. We have a choir school. There is a museum with paintings by artists such as El Greco, Picasso and Dalí. There are even treasures from ancient Egypt, amongst which one of the most outstanding treasures is a mummy. Montserrat lost most of its heritage during the Napoleonic Wars. However, since the Monastery was restored in 1844, the Museum has formed a valuable collection of artistic works. Private donations, from the artists themselves, and the sensitivity of the monks have made this possible. The Museum is divided into different sections organised in an instructive way. There are 13th century documents that prove that a choir school already existed in Montserrat. It was a religious and musical institution, made up by choir boys.

Casa de la Vila, a nineteenth-century Gothic revival building and Palau Maricel, with Renaissance, Baroque and medieval elements, are other interesting places to visit in the city. The Modernist aesthetics from the late nineteenth century and the early twentieth century left in Sitges beautiful buildings like Cau Ferrat, the house-studio of writer and painter Santiago Rusiñol. This artist moved to Sitges in 1891 and turned it into a meeting point for artists and intellectuals, giving it the bohemian air that it still preserves. The house-studio of Rusiñol exhibits his works next to paintings by El Greco, Zuloaga and Picasso, among others. At the Maricel Museum they have Romanesque, Gothic and Modern art collections.

 

We will also visit a Cava or Wine Cellar in the Penedés wine/cava area located at 45 minutes from Barcelona. Cava is the local sparking wine (Catalonian champagne). Cava is a sparkling white wine made using the "Method Champenoise". For a wine to be classified as cava it must be in contact with the lees for a minimum period of 9 months before disgorgement.

The so-called "City of the Four Rivers", shows us a historic centre dominated by medieval buildings and reminders of Romans, Arabs and Jews. Inside the walled enclosure of "La Força Vella" you can find the culiminating works of its historical destiny. One of the rivers, the Onyar, divides the historic centre from the modern city.

 

The old centre of this Catalan city preserves remains of its long history, from the time it was founded by the Romans in the 1st century B. C. To them we owe its original wall, whose remains stretch from the Archaeological Walk to the Wall Gardens.

 

Set in this walled enclosure (La Força Vella), stands the Cathedral. Its Romanesque origin is shown in its fortress-like appearance and strategic location, although the most outstanding aspect is an immense Gothic nave, the widest in Medieval European architecture. Inside, it preserves one of the textile jewels of Catalan Romanesque, the Creation Tapestry.

 

Girona has other key pieces of religious architecture, like the Benedictine monastery of Sant Pere de Galligants. The convent of Sant Doménech, built in Gothic style and a clear example of the importance of the religious orders in the colonisation and repopulation of Catalonia during the Middle Ages, stands amid gardens.

 

Also to this historical period belong important displays of Arab and Jewish art, the result of these cultures living side-by-side with Christianity for centuries. So, you will discover the multitude of small streets making up El Call, the Jewish quarter of Girona. Calle Força is the heart of this district, which had a synagogue and centres of cabbalistic study. The Call is currently one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Spain.

 

In the 12th century, Jews moved to a lower part of the city. In 1160 they were already inhabiting the Call, the name given to Jewish quarters in Catalonia. It is a name coming from Latin callis (street), which would become carrer in Catalan and calle in Spanish. In medieval times, call meant a "group of narrow streets". These paved, narrow and labirynth streets constituted the urban space where most of the Jewish population in Girona settled in the 13th and 14th centuries. The community's main body was formed by tradesmen and craftsmen: tailors, shoemakers, weavers, barbers, furriers, blacksmiths, goldsmiths and silversmiths opened their workshops in the Call´s narrow streets. Others devoted their time to medicine and astrology, while those who had the means became money-lenders. In Girona there is The Bonastruc ça Porta Centre, located in the emblematic building that housed the last synagogue of Girona, is currently the home of the Museum of the History of the Jews and the Nahmanides Institute for Jewish studies.

 

Not far from here, a Capuchin convent houses the Arab Baths, where we should point out a pavilion built on eight fine columns and crowned by an octagonal cupola.

Set in this walled enclosure (La Força Vella), stands the Cathedral. Its Romanesque origin is shown in its fortress-like appearance and strategic location, although the most outstanding aspect is an immense Gothic nave, the widest in Medieval European architecture. Inside, it preserves one of the textile jewels of Catalan Romanesque, the Creation Tapestry.

Figueres, county capital of Alt Empordà, extends over a river plain situated inland in the province of Girona. Known as the home of Salvador Dalí, this town with deep Catalan roots offers visitors the chance to go to the Dalí Theatre-Museum, dedicated to the genius of surrealist painting.

 

The Dalí Theatre-Museum is without doubt, however, one of the historical milestones that has left the greatest mark on the character of the town was the birth of Salvador Dalí.

Its early city centre, which was surrounded by walls during Roman times, makes up what today is the Gothic Quarter. Narrow streets, with quiet squares and attractive corners, are home to an abundant collection of Gothic buildings, both civil and religious. Surrounding Barcelona's impressive gothic Cathedral, medieval palaces emerge, such as Casa dels Canonges and Casa d´Ardiaca. The Plaça del Rei brings together another labyrinth of marvellous buildings, such as the Palau Reial Mayor and the Chapel of Santa Ágata. The Plaça Sant Jaume holds the Palau de la Generalitat (headquarters of the Catalan government) and the City Hall.

The Santa María del Mar church is one of the best examples of 14th century Catalonian Gothic architecture. It is the work of the architect Berenguer de Montagut and was the temple of the shipowners and merchants in Gothic Barcelona. Seen from the outside, its appearance is solid and robust, dominated by straight lines. The inside consists of three naves, an ambulatory and is without a transept. The amazing height of the central nave with its majestic octagonal columns stands out.

One of the main arteries of the historic quarter, La Rambla, leads to the Mediterranean Sea, and it is one of the best places to catch the rhythm of the city. The visitor is led through its different sections, from the Romanesque church of Santa Anna, to the bird and flower stalls, passing gorgeous examples of Baroque and Renaissance architecture on the way and the Boquería Market. And the terraces, pubs and bars should not be forgotten because they are where one of the most deeply-rooted of all traditions of Spain is carried out: the “tapeo” (Tapas are essentially snacks. Bigger portions that are ordered to make up part of a meal are called raciones).

The urban development of the central area of Barcelona was defined, towards the end of the 19th century, by the Eixample (urban expansion). An extensive grid, with large avenues and chamfered corners, joined the irregular layouts of old districts and outlying towns to the surrounding hills. The emerging Catalonian bourgeoisie chose this place to build its mansions and palaces, following the most daring principles of Modernism. 

The Sagrada Familia great expiatory temple: in 1883 the brilliant Gaudí agreed to direct this work, succeeding Francisco de Paula. The artist worked on it until his death. Work to complete this great church still continues today. The first architect to work on this project planned a Neogothic building. However, following his death, Gaudí took over, respecting the original layout of the work, but soon leaving the mark of his personality and way of doing things. He finished only the chapel of San José, the crypt and the door of El Nacimiento. The façades and the entire exterior show extensive decorative elements in bright colours. La Pasión entrance has a cryptogram there.

The Modernist Sant Pau Complex was built between 1905 and 1930 and designed by Lluís Domènech i Montaner as a garden city for nursing the sick. After being used as a public hospital for a century, its newly refurbished pavilions shine again in all their splendour. A visit to this exceptional architectural ensemble is a unique experience. This is Europe’s foremost art-nouveau complex and an icon among Barcelona’s dazzling array of landmarks which embodies the city’s innovative spirit. It was awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO in 1997 and now its architectural and artistic values have been brought to a wider audience with the new use of its pavilions.


 
Barcelona: Tour of the Gaudi Houses

The urban development of the central area of Barcelona was defined, towards the end of the 19th century, by the Eixample (urban expansion). An extensive grid, with large avenues and chamfered corners, joined the irregular layouts of old districts and outlying towns to the surrounding hills. The emerging Catalonian bourgeoisie chose this place to build its mansions and palaces, following the most daring principles of Modernism. Works by Gaudí, such Casa Milà “La Pedrera”, Casa Batlló and the temple of the Sagrada Familia (the Holy Family); Casa Amatller of Josep Puig i Cadalfach and Casa Lleó-Morera of Lluís Domènech I Montaner are just a few of the many modernist gems treasured by the city.
 
Casa Milà, better known as La Pedrera (Catalan for “The Quarry”), is a building designed by the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. It is located in the Eixample district of Barcelona. It was built for Roger Segimon de Milà. It is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Works of Antoni Gaudí”. The building does not have any straight lines. Most people consider it magnificent and overwhelming; some say it is like waves of lava or a sand-dune. This building seems to break our understanding of conventional architecture. The most astonishing part is the roof with an almost lunar appearance and dreamlike landscape.
Casa Batlló building looks very remarkable, like everything Gaudi designed, only identifiable as Modernisme or Art Nouveau in the broadest sense. The ground floor, in particular, is rather astonishing with tracery, irregular oval windows and flowing sculpted stone work. It seems that the goal of the designer was to avoid straight lines completely. Much of the façade is decorated with a mosaic made of broken ceramic tiles (trencadís) that starts in shades of golden orange moving into greenish blues. The roof is arched and was likened to the back of a dragon or dinosaur.
The Museu de Modernisme Català is housed in a centrally located modernista building designed by the architect Enric Sagnier.n The top floor of the MMCat showcases the furniture and decorative arts and has a room dedicated to Antoni Gaudi. The ground floor displays paintings, sculptures and stained glass.

The Romans gave the name of "Lacobriga" to the town of Lagos but its natural river port would indicate very much earlier occupation. The Moors then gave the town the name of "Zawaia" It was captured from the Moors in 1189 but it was not until 1249 that it was finally conquered by Dom Afonso III and integrated into the kingdom of Portugal with the name of "Lagus". This historic town has played an important part in the story of discovery of many parts of the world. It was from the harbour that Vasco da Gama sailed in 1499 on his historic and epic voyage of discovery. Lagos was the capital of the Algarve from 1578 until 1756 and there remain several ancient buildings to testify to its historic glory.

 

Lagos is now an important tourist town with many architectural signs of its ancient past, even a building dating originally back to around 1445 which is recorded as being Europe's first building used as a slave market. The walls of the town in the most part remain after sections were restored. Attached to the famous 17th Century "gold" church of Santo António there is a small museum of regional items, some of which are quite odd! The town's more recently constructed Marina presents a lovely picture and this harbour is practically the first sight a visitor has of Lagos. There are several interesting statues erected to the famous figures of the past that are associated with the history of this town.

 

We drive to Vila do Bispo a very small administrative town for the Sagres area, the later being the most south-west corner of Europe! This area is a must for every visitor to the Algarve as it presents a very impressive and dramatic sight of towering sheer cliffs being beaten by the weight of the vast Atlantic Ocean. It is from here that Prince Henry sat and planned the several epic voyages of discovery that enlarged the known world of that time.

 

Sagres is close to the most south western point of Europe known as Cape St. Vincent. The legend of the martyr Saint Vincent is that his relics were mysteriously transported by ravens from the Holy Land to the Cape and subsequently guarded by them. The small chapel of Nossa Senhora da Graça and reputably the giant pebble wind compass, Rosa dos Ventos. The present walls surrounding the area are the remains of a 17th Century fort. At the nearby Cape St Vincent is an impressive lighthouse that can normally be visited.

Portimao (Algarve): Half Day Excursion to Silves and Monchique

Silves was once the capital of the whole district and was still referred to in the beginning of the 19th Century as the "Kingdom of the Algarve". Evidence shows that it was already a place of note in Roman times but it really became an important place during its occupation in the early 11th Century by the Moors. Giving it the name of Xelb, they constructed lavish palaces and created a cultural centre of learning for the whole Iberian Peninsular. Although it was important as a town it still fell under the mantle and control of Cordoba in Spain. It is recorded that in 1189 there were over 15.000 inhabitants when the Knights of Santiago sacked the city with the assistance of the Anglo-Norman Crusaders. Two years later it was retaken by the Caliph Ben Yussef. In 1242 that it was again under the control of the Portuguese Kings.

 

The impressive remains of the castle dates back to Moors and there is a impressive underground water reservoirs that are still used by the city today. As a reminder of the Romans occupation is the Ponte Romana, a fine strong bridge over the Rio Arade below the city walls and having been rebuilt from the original in the 15th Century. The city's earlier 13th Century Cathedral was built on the site of a Mosque and has suffered considerable alteration over the centuries.

 

Monchique lies in the saddle created by the two high hills, Foia and Picota, the former reaching to 902 metres above sea level. As with "mountain" people the world over the 10,000 inhabitants of this town have retained its rustic atmosphere with steep cobbled streets and small dark doorways housing various artisan trades.

 

There is a very neglected 17th~Century Franciscan monastery which overlooks the town from which a visitor enjoys a panoramic view over the beautiful countryside. The 16th Century Parish Church has excellent examples of Manueline craftsmanship around its doorway. The surrounding area flourishes on the production of cattle, pigs, cork and wood. Another important local product is the popular "medronho", which is the name of a strong schnapps style of drink made from distilling the fruit from arbutus bushes.

Faro is the administrative centre for the whole of the Algarve region. The city has both Arab and Roman ruins but most of the present attractive older buildings were constructed after the disastrous earthquake of both 1755 and 1532. The Moors who occupied the town in the 8th Century originally gave the city it the name of Ossónoba and developed it into a trading port until 1249. They were then defeated by the forces of Dom Afonso III. During the 500 years of Moorish occupation there were some Jewish inhabitants in Faro who were kept busy printing copies of the Old Testament.
 
Particularly attractive is the old part of the city surrounded still by the Roman walls which date back to the 9th. Inside a spacious open square that was once the site of the Roman Forum is a 13th Century Cathedral that faces the 18th Century Episcopal palace. An interesting building is the neighbouring 16th Century Convent that is now turned into the home of the city’s archaeological museum. The "golden" church of Nossa Senhora do Carmo is claimed to be the best example of gold-leaf woodwork in southern Portugal.
 
Next to the small boat basin bordering the Praça de Dom Francisco Gomes is a small Naval Museum composed of scale model boats and galleons showing the maritime history of the coast. Faro is also the home of the Ria Formosa lagoon, a nature reserve of over 17.000 hectares and a stopping place for hundreds of different birds during the spring and autumn migratory periods.
 
The Olhao fishermen’s district is a nice place to visit, where you can see the whitewashed houses, some of them with tiles and flat roofs. Here, narrow streets cover the district and its possible to see the Moorish influence. If the visitor climbs to the bell tower of Nossa Senhora do Rosario church, they can contemplate all the city.
The fishermen's quarter is located between the quay on the Ria Formosa and the earth of the city defined by the main church. The streets that border the Avenida da República, itself a symbol of the urban development that took place at the turn of the century, reflect a city of industrials and ship-owners who grew rich from the fish processing business and trade, displaying their wealth by decorating their homes with verandas, tiles, carved stonework and wrought iron.
 
Tavira has a really nice old city centre made up by a labyrinth of streets with beautiful pavements. The centre hides gardens and wooded squares, churches, and worth-to-visit mansions. Visit the Misericordia church built between 1541 and 1551 and considered the most important Renaissance building in Algarve. The city also has a small fishing port.

Optional Private Excursions

Avoid the crowds and hustle and bustle associated with a group activity. For a memorable trip ashore, we invite you to consider a private shore excursion. Enjoy the undivided attention of your own driver/guide and the flexibility of experiencing the aspects of the local culture that most interest you. Below are just some samples of the private shore excursions we can arrange for you. Let us personalize your experience!

Discover Manhattan: From Central Park to Battery Park
The most popular part of New York City is the area between Central Park and Battery Park.  Within those borders are some of the world’s most famous places: The Empire State Building, Chinatown, Grand Central Terminal, the 9/11 Memorial, the Brooklyn Bridge, the South Street Seaport, Washington Square Arch, Little Italy, Rockefeller Center, and Times Square.  On tour with a private guide you will see, hear, and explore the city.  In some cases you will get out and walk around so you can truly experience Gotham.  This tour is customizable.  We can focus on art, cuisine, architecture, walking, or a mix of everything.

High Line, Chelsea Market & Meatpacking District
Until 1958, the building that houses the famous Chelsea Market was a Nabisco factory, and less than 20 years ago, it was used for light manufacturing. 
Fifteen years ago, the area known as the Meatpacking District was known for just that, plus some really “interesting” night clubs, and many used the street as a place to do business.
 
About 10 years ago, the park called the High Line was an abandoned elevated railway and the park was only on paper.
 
Today, the area is one of the hottest in Manhattan. Chelsea Market has some of the best food purveyors in the city. Bring your appetite and get something to eat. The Meatpacking District, with its cobblestone streets, still has some grit and its checkered past along with all kinds of new development mixed in. You’ll learn a lot from your guide who will point out things only a professional will know. The most important addition to the area has been the High Line Park, which went from urban decay to metropolitan oasis. Walk a portion of the High Line with your guide as she tells you its secrets and stories.

 
Please note that this tour is for parties of five or less.

Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island
Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty was a gift of international friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States.  It is one of the most universal symbols of political freedom and democracy.  The views of the Statue from the water are breathtaking and reminiscent of what immigrants first saw entering New York Harbor.

Ellis Island
Ellis Island opened in 1892 and was the entry point for European immigrants for more than 60 years.  Twelve million people passed through the halls that are now the historical Ellis Island Immigration Museum.  Walk through the Great Hall as the new Americans once did – ancestors of more than half of the US population.  You can search for your family surname on the American Immigrant wall of Honor.  With over 600,000 entries, it is the longest wall of names in the world.

Where else can you see a castle, a sled dog, Alice in Wonderland, a pair of hawks, and a 4,000-year-old obelisk from Egypt in one place?  You guessed it: Central Park is more than just a green space in the middle of Manhattan Island; it is an 843-acre oasis 150 years in the making and a favorite retreat for New Yorkers of all walks of life.  An essential part of the urban landscape, Central Park is something that no New Yorker could live without.  It fits into the Manhattan environment so naturally that many people never realize it is entirely man-made.  Follow your guide on the winding paths and over the bridges and through the tunnels, and learn how the architects Olmsted and Vaux created New York’s “backyard.”

Crazy Christmas Lights of Brooklyn
It’s not a wealthy or ostentatious neighborhood, but Dyker Heights, adjacent to Bensonhurst and for decades a bastion of Italian Americans, takes Christmas seriously, and invites everyone to come and join in on the fun.  The local residents outdo one another in mounting over-the-top Christmas light decorations.  Tens of thousands of tourists come to see this neighborhood outpouring of creativity and fun, as light displays spill over their homes, roofs, and gardens.  Kids will be awed by the sheer amount of holiday decorations: brightly lit Rudolphs on the roof, Santas on the lawn, and entire homes ablaze with lights. 
Dyker Heights has been made famous in the PBS documentary Dyker Lights and seen on TLC’s Crazy Christmas Lights.

Manhattan Holiday Lights
During the holidays in New York City there is something special in the air.  It is not easy to describe, but it is something you sense when you see the lights, the people, and the hustle and bustle of holiday preparation.  All New Yorkers have their favorite spot to “sense” the holidays.  The Christmas Markets in Grand Central Station is one and the plaza at Lincoln Center is another.  Many like to gaze at the stupendous windows of Macy’s and Sak’s, while the traditionalist will marvel at the wonder of 30,000 lights on the tree at Rockefeller Center. Come along with one of our New York guides and experience the holidays in New York; like no other place for the holidays.  Your guide will take you to spots you have only seen in the movies and also their favorite spot, and if you have been nice and not naughty, maybe even reveal a secret or two about the holidays in New York.  So, grab your Santa cap and come along for a ride of lights and smiling faces.

Williamsburg & Greenpoint
In North Brooklyn, Williamsburg and adjacent Greenpoint offer a rich array of charms and curiosities, mixing history and modernity. Once industrial neighborhoods and immigrant centers, they have boomed in recent years, thanks to civic improvement and proximity to Manhattan. They offer waterfront views of Manhattan, quirky shopping, delicious food, and various arts. 
Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s best-known “hipster” zone, features the longtime home of the Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn’s new hotel district (including a reclaimed factory), and bustling shopping streets, from homemade crafts to the borough’s first Apple store. In South Williamsburg, an enclave of ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jews maintains 19th century traditions with a 21st century twist.
 
Adjacent Greenpoint contains a handsome historic district and several historic churches. While Williamsburg-style gentrification has drifted north, bringing new shopping, food, and nightspots, Greenpoint maintains an enduring Polish presence and has two small, lovely parks.

As you enter the ever-popular, world-famous Coney Island, the first thing you will notice is that it’s not an island.  Coney Island was connected to Brooklyn with landfill in 1920; now it is best known for hotdogs, amusement parks, and the Cyclone.  Coney Island is full of iconic history that has created the legend it’s become.  You will walk along the famous boardwalk and even dip a toe in the Atlantic Ocean.

One of the best-kept secrets of the City of New York is Brooklyn Heights, a beautiful district in Brooklyn.  Some historians call it one of the first suburbs in the United States.  Brooklyn Heights is unique as it radiates a hometown atmosphere while situated right next door to one of the most recognizable cityscapes in the world.  In 1964, Brooklyn Heights was the first area designated as a New York City Historic District; you will understand why as you see Federal style homes built in the 1820s, brick and brownstone homes from the 1830s and 1840s, and two Italianate mansions that overlook Pierrepont Street.

Brooklyn Bridge
Opened in 1883 after thirteen years of construction, the Brooklyn Bridge was built across the East River to connect Manhattan with the then-rural city of Brooklyn.  From the beginning, the bridge’s designer, John A.

The Life of Alexander Hamilton
Alexander Hamilton was a real New Yorker. Immigrant, broke when he got here, worked hard, lived in multiple neighborhoods, spoke his mind, always hustling for a better job, and knew he was better than everyone else. You can trace his life through the streets of Manhattan. From the only house he owned in Harlem, to where he worked as the Secretary of Treasury in the Financial District. His widow Eliza lived in a townhouse in East Village which still stands and there are traces of Aaron Burr, the “damn fool that shot Hamilton”, all over the borough. See the spot of the original building where Hamilton, Jefferson and Madison negotiated the Compromise of 1790 (“room where it happened”) and the university where he got a scholarship (not where he punched the bursar). This tour is a must for any Hamilton fan, history buff or anyone who wants to be cool at the next cocktail or tea party.

The Floor is Yours at Madison Square Garden
When you look at the court from close up, and by close up I mean when you are walking on it, it does not seem that big.  You say to yourself, “I can run up and down this thing.”  You take a few shots, a few go in, some hit the rim, a few “wow, that was bad” shots.  You are warming up because in just a few minutes a pro basketball player is going to walk onto the court and you want to be able to show him what you got.  When he gets there you give him the look that you are ready and his gives you the eye and says, “Take the shot.”  Swish, and you feel like a million bucks.  So now the two of you are on the court and he is showing you the moves of the game; how to dunk, free throw, and guard.  Never did you think you would get a chance to be at Madison Square Garden, playing with one of your heroes.  You make it last as long as you can, then get some photos with you and your temporary basketball coach.  Do not forget that last free throw, and then let him sign the ball, because you are taking it home.

SoHo
Like most of the developing city in the early years, SoHo (which stands for South of Houston Street – and by the way, it’s pronounced How-ston) started as a small village.  Over time, the neighborhood went from the wealthiest, to the most industrial, to a slum called “Hell’s 100 acres.”  Now it is back to trendy again.  SoHo is one of the most stylish neighborhoods in New York City, with clues of its past around every corner.  Several of its cast iron buildings built in the mid-1800s still stand.  As you explore the area, you will get the feel of its many cobblestone streets.  When artists arrived in SoHo in the 1970s, they began the revival of the neighborhood.  You’ll visit two of SoHo’s famed art galleries, including the Earth Room.  Next to SoHo is NoLIta – which is Northern Little Italy.  The area is home to the old St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  One story in particular your guide will impart is the 1799 murder of Elma Sands, the “Ghost of Spring Street.”

The Origins of NYC Sightseeing Program
New York traces its rich history to Lower Manhattan, the meeting point of the Hudson River and the East River.  Originally named Nieuw (New) Amsterdam, New York City began as a small Dutch settlement in what is now known as Lower Manhattan.  Broadway, which was then called Heere Straat (Gentleman Street), was nothing but a small road.  Wall Street actually had a wall back in 1653 to protect the settlers from attacks.  As the city grew, so did the nation.  New York was the first capital of the United States and the spot where George Washington was inaugurated is marked by his statue.  Over the years, Lower Manhattan has become the financial capital of the world.  Today, the streets are teeming with people and filled with stories of New York’s past, present, and future.  As you explore Lower Manhattan with your guide, you’ll see the 9/11 Memorial, St. Paul’s Chapel, Battery Park, and Trinity Church as you learn about the history of the Native Americans, Dutch, and English.

New York's Big Three
Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park: these three sights make up one of the most popular triangles in the world. All within walking distance of one another, they are three of the most visited places in New York City. This walking tour will take you to each location, showing specific highlights and pointing out well-known locations from television and motion pictures. 

Central Park
More than just a green space in the middle of Manhattan Island, it is an 843-acre oasis, 150 years in the making, and a favorite retreat for New Yorkers. An essential part of the urban landscape, Central Park is a place no New Yorker can live without. You will follow your guide on the park’s winding paths, over the bridges, through the tunnels, and learn how the architects Olmsted and Vaux created New York’s “backyard”.
 
Times Square
Also known as “The Great White Way”, located at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Don’t let the name fool you, it is actually more a triangle of intersecting major streets. It got its name when the NY Times building was built there, long before it was a showcase of neon lights and jumbo digital screens, and the name has stuck ever since.
 
Rockefeller Center
Located in the center of Midtown Manhattan and a complex of 19 commercial buildings, it is NYC’s top tourist attraction. John D. Rockefeller Jr.’s resolution to make Rockefeller Center contemporary and innovative can be felt with every artwork and attraction.

Manhattan by Subway
Real New Yorkers get around by subway and today, so will you. In fact, by the end of the day you will be swiping your MetroCard like a local. Start with a ride to Lower Manhattan and stop at Battery Park, which offers vistas of the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Walk up Broadway and see the Bull, Bowling Green, Fearless Girl, Federal Hall, New York Stock Exchange, Trinity Church, and the National September 11 Memorial. Jump on the subway to Greenwich Village and see the famous Washington Square Arch and the main campus of the most expensive college in the USA, New York University. Your next ride will take you to Bryant Park, once a “no-go” location for even locals but now a prime destination for food, drinks, and shopping. Its eastern border is the main branch of the New York Public Library, a must-see when in Manhattan. Your final ride will take you to Central Park for a stroll on its idyllic paths.

A Cultural Walk Through Little Italy and Chinatown
There are numerous ethnic groups in New York City, but only two have neighborhoods named after them: one is Little Italy, and the other is Chinatown. 

Little Italy was formed in the late 1800s as millions of Italian immigrants streamed into the United States. And although nowadays you do not hear much Italian on the street, there are still old school establishments that carry on the traditions. 

Chinatown on the other hand is still growing and when you enter it, it is like being transported to another country. All the signs are in Chinese, the languages spoken are all dialects of Chinese, the produce and food shops sell many items you will not recognize. It is submersion into another culture.  
Join your guide on this walking tour and find out what is below the surface that makes both these neighborhoods even more unique and intriguing.
 
Tour will include the following sights and/or stops:
  • Mulberry Street (main drag of Little Italy) 
  • Mahayana Buddhist Temple

Optional Private Excursions

Avoid the crowds and hustle and bustle associated with a group activity. For a memorable trip ashore, we invite you to consider a private shore excursion. Enjoy the undivided attention of your own driver/guide and the flexibility of experiencing the aspects of the local culture that most interest you. Below are just some samples of the private shore excursions we can arrange for you. Let us personalize your experience!

Discover Manhattan: From Central Park to Battery Park
The most popular part of New York City is the area between Central Park and Battery Park.  Within those borders are some of the world’s most famous places: The Empire State Building, Chinatown, Grand Central Terminal, the 9/11 Memorial, the Brooklyn Bridge, the South Street Seaport, Washington Square Arch, Little Italy, Rockefeller Center, and Times Square.  On tour with a private guide you will see, hear, and explore the city.  In some cases you will get out and walk around so you can truly experience Gotham.  This tour is customizable.  We can focus on art, cuisine, architecture, walking, or a mix of everything.

High Line, Chelsea Market & Meatpacking District
Until 1958, the building that houses the famous Chelsea Market was a Nabisco factory, and less than 20 years ago, it was used for light manufacturing. 
Fifteen years ago, the area known as the Meatpacking District was known for just that, plus some really “interesting” night clubs, and many used the street as a place to do business.
 
About 10 years ago, the park called the High Line was an abandoned elevated railway and the park was only on paper.
 
Today, the area is one of the hottest in Manhattan. Chelsea Market has some of the best food purveyors in the city. Bring your appetite and get something to eat. The Meatpacking District, with its cobblestone streets, still has some grit and its checkered past along with all kinds of new development mixed in. You’ll learn a lot from your guide who will point out things only a professional will know. The most important addition to the area has been the High Line Park, which went from urban decay to metropolitan oasis. Walk a portion of the High Line with your guide as she tells you its secrets and stories.

 
Please note that this tour is for parties of five or less.

Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island
Statue of Liberty
The Statue of Liberty was a gift of international friendship from the people of France to the people of the United States.  It is one of the most universal symbols of political freedom and democracy.  The views of the Statue from the water are breathtaking and reminiscent of what immigrants first saw entering New York Harbor.

Ellis Island
Ellis Island opened in 1892 and was the entry point for European immigrants for more than 60 years.  Twelve million people passed through the halls that are now the historical Ellis Island Immigration Museum.  Walk through the Great Hall as the new Americans once did – ancestors of more than half of the US population.  You can search for your family surname on the American Immigrant wall of Honor.  With over 600,000 entries, it is the longest wall of names in the world.

Crazy Christmas Lights of Brooklyn
It’s not a wealthy or ostentatious neighborhood, but Dyker Heights, adjacent to Bensonhurst and for decades a bastion of Italian Americans, takes Christmas seriously, and invites everyone to come and join in on the fun.  The local residents outdo one another in mounting over-the-top Christmas light decorations.  Tens of thousands of tourists come to see this neighborhood outpouring of creativity and fun, as light displays spill over their homes, roofs, and gardens.  Kids will be awed by the sheer amount of holiday decorations: brightly lit Rudolphs on the roof, Santas on the lawn, and entire homes ablaze with lights. 
Dyker Heights has been made famous in the PBS documentary Dyker Lights and seen on TLC’s Crazy Christmas Lights.

Manhattan Holiday Lights
During the holidays in New York City there is something special in the air.  It is not easy to describe, but it is something you sense when you see the lights, the people, and the hustle and bustle of holiday preparation.  All New Yorkers have their favorite spot to “sense” the holidays.  The Christmas Markets in Grand Central Station is one and the plaza at Lincoln Center is another.  Many like to gaze at the stupendous windows of Macy’s and Sak’s, while the traditionalist will marvel at the wonder of 30,000 lights on the tree at Rockefeller Center. Come along with one of our New York guides and experience the holidays in New York; like no other place for the holidays.  Your guide will take you to spots you have only seen in the movies and also their favorite spot, and if you have been nice and not naughty, maybe even reveal a secret or two about the holidays in New York.  So, grab your Santa cap and come along for a ride of lights and smiling faces.

Williamsburg & Greenpoint
In North Brooklyn, Williamsburg and adjacent Greenpoint offer a rich array of charms and curiosities, mixing history and modernity. Once industrial neighborhoods and immigrant centers, they have boomed in recent years, thanks to civic improvement and proximity to Manhattan. They offer waterfront views of Manhattan, quirky shopping, delicious food, and various arts. 
Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s best-known “hipster” zone, features the longtime home of the Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn’s new hotel district (including a reclaimed factory), and bustling shopping streets, from homemade crafts to the borough’s first Apple store. In South Williamsburg, an enclave of ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jews maintains 19th century traditions with a 21st century twist.
 
Adjacent Greenpoint contains a handsome historic district and several historic churches. While Williamsburg-style gentrification has drifted north, bringing new shopping, food, and nightspots, Greenpoint maintains an enduring Polish presence and has two small, lovely parks.

Drive to Manhattan Beach, the more upscale neighborhood of Brighton Beach, with its beautiful single-family homes form the late 19th century.  You will begin to think that you are no longer in New York, but a Russian city.  The shops’ signage is in a foreign alphabet and the markets are full of Russian-made goods.  Besides the ethnic attraction, it was also the childhood home of writer/producer/comedian Mel Brooks and playwright Neil Simon, who put the neighborhood on the stage with Brighton Beach Memoirs.  Your guide will take you through the historic sights and shops. 

As you enter the ever-popular, world-famous Coney Island, the first thing you will notice is that it’s not an island.  Coney Island was connected to Brooklyn with landfill in 1920; now it is best known for hotdogs, amusement parks, and the Cyclone.  Coney Island is full of iconic history that has created the legend it’s become.  You will walk along the famous boardwalk and even dip a toe in the Atlantic Ocean.

Brooklyn Heights
One of the best-kept secrets of the City of New York is Brooklyn Heights, a beautiful district in Brooklyn.  Some historians call it one of the first suburbs in the United States.  Brooklyn Heights is unique as it radiates a hometown atmosphere while situated right next door to one of the most recognizable cityscapes in the world.  In 1964, Brooklyn Heights was the first area designated as a New York City Historic District; you will understand why as you see Federal style homes built in the 1820s, brick and brownstone homes from the 1830s and 1840s, and two Italianate mansions that overlook Pierrepont Street.

Brooklyn Bridge
Opened in 1883 after thirteen years of construction, the Brooklyn Bridge was built across the East River to connect Manhattan with the then-rural city of Brooklyn.  From the beginning, the bridge’s designer, John A. Roebling, planned not just a structure of convenience, but a great work of art that would stand the test of time.  The Brooklyn Bridge is a fully accessible bridge, with a center lane above traffic open to bicycle and pedestrian traffic.  Your fully guided tour takes you on a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge; a walk taken every day by commuters and tourists, and during times of crisis, such as after the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11.

The tour also includes an exploration around City Hall Park and the DUMBO neighborhood in Brooklyn.

The Life of Alexander Hamilton
Alexander Hamilton was a real New Yorker. Immigrant, broke when he got here, worked hard, lived in multiple neighborhoods, spoke his mind, always hustling for a better job, and knew he was better than everyone else. You can trace his life through the streets of Manhattan. From the only house he owned in Harlem, to where he worked as the Secretary of Treasury in the Financial District. His widow Eliza lived in a townhouse in East Village which still stands and there are traces of Aaron Burr, the “damn fool that shot Hamilton”, all over the borough. See the spot of the original building where Hamilton, Jefferson and Madison negotiated the Compromise of 1790 (“room where it happened”) and the university where he got a scholarship (not where he punched the bursar). This tour is a must for any Hamilton fan, history buff or anyone who wants to be cool at the next cocktail or tea party.  

Tour will include the following sights:
  • Alexander Hamilton U.S. Custom House
  • Hamilton Grange National Memorial
  • The Morris-Jumel Mansion
  • Trinity Church

The Floor is Yours at Madison Square Garden
When you look at the court from close up, and by close up I mean when you are walking on it, it does not seem that big.  You say to yourself, “I can run up and down this thing.”  You take a few shots, a few go in, some hit the rim, a few “wow, that was bad” shots.  You are warming up because in just a few minutes a pro basketball player is going to walk onto the court and you want to be able to show him what you got.  When he gets there you give him the look that you are ready and his gives you the eye and says, “Take the shot.”  Swish, and you feel like a million bucks.  So now the two of you are on the court and he is showing you the moves of the game; how to dunk, free throw, and guard.  Never did you think you would get a chance to be at Madison Square Garden, playing with one of your heroes.  You make it last as long as you can, then get some photos with you and your temporary basketball coach.  Do not forget that last free throw, and then let him sign the ball, because you are taking it home.

SoHo
Like most of the developing city in the early years, SoHo (which stands for South of Houston Street – and by the way, it’s pronounced How-ston) started as a small village.  Over time, the neighborhood went from the wealthiest, to the most industrial, to a slum called “Hell’s 100 acres.”  Now it is back to trendy again.  SoHo is one of the most stylish neighborhoods in New York City, with clues of its past around every corner.  Several of its cast iron buildings built in the mid-1800s still stand.  As you explore the area, you will get the feel of its many cobblestone streets.  When artists arrived in SoHo in the 1970s, they began the revival of the neighborhood.  You’ll visit two of SoHo’s famed art galleries, including the Earth Room.  Next to SoHo is NoLIta – which is Northern Little Italy.  The area is home to the old St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  One story in particular your guide will impart is the 1799 murder of Elma Sands, the “Ghost of Spring Street.”

The Origins of NYC Sightseeing Program
New York traces its rich history to Lower Manhattan, the meeting point of the Hudson River and the East River.  Originally named Nieuw (New) Amsterdam, New York City began as a small Dutch settlement in what is now known as Lower Manhattan.  Broadway, which was then called Heere Straat (Gentleman Street), was nothing but a small road.  Wall Street actually had a wall back in 1653 to protect the settlers from attacks.  As the city grew, so did the nation.  New York was the first capital of the United States and the spot where George Washington was inaugurated is marked by his statue.  Over the years, Lower Manhattan has become the financial capital of the world.  Today, the streets are teeming with people and filled with stories of New York’s past, present, and future.  As you explore Lower Manhattan with your guide, you’ll see the 9/11 Memorial, St. Paul’s Chapel, Battery Park, and Trinity Church as you learn about the history of the Native Americans, Dutch, and English.

New York's Big Three
Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and Central Park: these three sights make up one of the most popular triangles in the world. All within walking distance of one another, they are three of the most visited places in New York City. This walking tour will take you to each location, showing specific highlights and pointing out well-known locations from television and motion pictures. 

Central Park
More than just a green space in the middle of Manhattan Island, it is an 843-acre oasis, 150 years in the making, and a favorite retreat for New Yorkers. An essential part of the urban landscape, Central Park is a place no New Yorker can live without. You will follow your guide on the park’s winding paths, over the bridges, through the tunnels, and learn how the architects Olmsted and Vaux created New York’s “backyard”.
 
Times Square
Also known as “The Great White Way”, located at the junction of Broadway and Seventh Avenue and stretching from West 42nd to West 47th Streets. Don’t let the name fool you, it is actually more a triangle of intersecting major streets. It got its name when the NY Times building was built there, long before it was a showcase of neon lights and jumbo digital screens, and the name has stuck ever since.
 
Rockefeller Center
Located in the center of Midtown Manhattan and a complex of 19 commercial buildings, it is NYC’s top tourist attraction. John D. Rockefeller Jr.’s resolution to make Rockefeller Center contemporary and innovative can be felt with every artwork and attraction.

A Cultural Walk Through Little Italy and Chinatown
There are numerous ethnic groups in New York City, but only two have neighborhoods named after them: one is Little Italy, and the other is Chinatown. 

Little Italy was formed in the late 1800s as millions of Italian immigrants streamed into the United States. And although nowadays you do not hear much Italian on the street, there are still old school establishments that carry on the traditions. 

Chinatown on the other hand is still growing and when you enter it, it is like being transported to another country. All the signs are in Chinese, the languages spoken are all dialects of Chinese, the produce and food shops sell many items you will not recognize. It is submersion into another culture.  
Join your guide on this walking tour and find out what is below the surface that makes both these neighborhoods even more unique and intriguing.
