About the tour

Starting at City Hall, we’ll journey through lower Manhattan. Along the way, we’ll see the 9/11 Memorial, Trinity Church, the new Oculus, Federal Hall, the New York Stock Exchange and much more. It will be a busy, fast-paced tour…but busy and fast-paced describe the Financial District perfectly!


Meet your local guide

Aaron K. and Patrick

Aaron and Patrick both grew up on farms, but having lived in New York City for over 25 years, they consider themselves New Yorkers. Their tours are energetic and fast-paced - much like the city they love. While venturing through New York City's iconic highlights, viewers will also discover some hidden gems and learn where to find a sweet treat or the best slice of New York-style pizza. Better yet, you get to stroll through Times Square (and on New Year's eve, catch over a million partiers!) or see a stunning fireworks display from Belvedere Castle. "We have so many funny memories but here are two of our favorites. During one of our Christmas tours, we slipped on the ice in front of hundreds of Virtualtrips viewers - luckily, we were fine! On a different tour, we happened upon a person dressed as a tap-dancing fox in Washington square park. A rare sighting indeed!" Patrick laughs. Virtual trips voyagers have the opportunity to see New York from Aaron and Patrick's perspective. Their positive energy is infectious and each tour feels like a love letter to the city. Come take a bite out of The Big Apple with the NYC tour!

Aaron & Patrick are fantastic guides, knowledgeable, funny & it is just plain fun to trek around NY City with them. And the way they handled the 911 Memorial was very thoughtful & gave us time to digest the horror that happened on 911 & enjoy the wonderful Memorial .
