The Upper West Side is a neighborhood not often on a tourist's itinerary, but it is one full of architectural and historical treasures. This is a particularly good tour if you are interested in grand old apartment buildings, such as the Dakota (where John Lennon lived). It's also a great way to get a sense of what it's like to be a New Yorker.
This tour lasts approximately two hours and costs a flat fee of $100 for groups of 1-4 people. For parties larger than 4 people, the cost is $25 per person. Please inquire about discounts for student groups or parties larger than 10 people.
