TravelMaven is offering two tours to New York City in October 2021. One is our regular Great Cities Walking Tour; the other adds a cycling component.
October 19-24: WALKING TOUR + CYCLING
October 26-31: WALKING TOUR
Our regular Land Package rate for this 6 day / 5 night tour is C$2,235.
However, due to a great one-time offer from our partner hotel, this year we can offer a Special Rate of C$1,935 (based on double occupancy).
These two tours are very similar, except Walking Tour + Cycling includes a few bike rides along the Hudson Greenway (dedicated bike path along the Hudson River) and in Central Park. Bike lanes and trails in NYC are mostly flat, and we will take it easy and avoid busy times to make it as enjoyable and safe as possible.
Please note that TravelMaven requires bike helmets, so guests will want to bring their own, probably with a daypack to carry it around during the day. Both tours will also include lots of walking, so comfortable shoes are important.
As you might expect, this year we will be particularly careful about public health issues, carefully abiding by local regulations and taking whatever steps are necessary to ensure a safe experience for our guests. (Further details are available by clicking the “Reducing COVID-19 Risk” banner at the top of this page.) Fortunately, this tour is mostly outside and limited to 12 guests, so that will help to reduce the risk.
Finally, TravelMaven acknowledges that we don’t really know at this point if we will be able to operate these tours in October. We are cautiously optimistic, but recognize that we will have to wait to see how things unfold before deciding in early September whether we can safely operate them or not.
To this end, TravelMaven has made our $250 deposits fully refundable until 45 days prior to departure. At that point, you get to decide if you are comfortable taking a trip south of the border this fall. If you don’t, you get all your money back.
So, if you want to give yourself something to look forward to, we recommend you make your financially risk-free booking now, before the 12 spots are taken!
This is TravelMaven’s classic Great Cities Walking Tour. The best way to see any city is on foot, and that’s especially true in New York City.
This Great Cities Walking Tour is special in that it includes two days of cycle touring through Central Park and along the Hudson Greenway.
