Our tour continues with a cruise around Manhattan Island, where we can see historic Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty that dominates the entrance to the city, Staten Island and the great Verenzano Bridge.

Remarkably, the public library is one of the most important research libraries in the United States.

At the same time we will continue our walk in the West Village, where we will pass by the building where the shooting of the series that was a huge success in Greece, "The Friends", thus completing our special walk ! Then, we visit one of the richest museums in the world, the Metropolitan Museum of Art where works of priceless value from every culture are collected. It is the third most visited museum in the world, after the Louvre and the British Museum.

Its permanent collections include works of art from classical antiquity, ancient Egypt, Byzantine and Islamic art, paintings and sculptures by leading painters, as well as an extensive collection of American, African, Asian, Asian and contemporary art and much, much more. Surely a single day is not enough to explore it in its entirety. This is a museum with a rich and inexhaustible collection that art lovers will love. Next, we will experience Brooklyn's Dumbo district, an area located in the southeastern end of Brooklyn. This area, whose name comes from the initials Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, is one of the most historic and photographed areas with unsurpassed views for the best photos of your trip. So, as a souvenir, don't forget to take a picture of the corner of Washington Street yourself. There we'll walk through neighborhoods reminiscent of another era. The famous brownstone houses of the 19th century are a landmark, the immaculate buildings and manicured trees of Brooklyn Heights lend an air of stateliness to the neighborhood. While the area caters to classic tastes, one need not be an expert to enjoy the neighborhood's rustic architecture. In Brooklyn's most impressive neighborhood is the Timeout Market a multi-faceted market with top chef restaurants featuring specialties from around the world. We will stroll along the river with views of the Manhattan skyscrapers and enjoy food and drink in a unique setting among the majestic bridges of Brooklyn and Manhattan. From there we will have the opportunity to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge with a final destination of Manhattan!

We then return to the hotel. We suggest spending the evening at one of Manhattan's most authentic Jazz Bars, with live music, food and drink. Due to the fact that the center is often full, you have the option of booking and purchasing a ticket from us. For the burger and chocolate lovers, our guide will recommend the best spots in town! 

Day 5: New York - Woodbury Commons Outlets Discount Village(optional).

Free day. For those of you whose very cheap shopping is one of the reasons for visiting New York, a visit to the largest, richest and most impressive, shopping mall, the famous Woodbury Commons is a must. It is worth noting that the shops are spread out in a huge open space that resembles a small village, which makes your shopping even safer. Just an hour or so away from Manhattan, there are all the brand-name items at incredibly low prices. Two hundred and twenty plus fashion names will be at your disposal. It is no coincidence that the largest percentage of Americans, choose this place for their shopping. With stores like Michael Kors, Gucci, Guess, Dolce&Gabbana, Ugg, Nike, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Timberland, Brooks Brothers, Tommy Hilfiger and many more in an incredible variety and at prices up to four times cheaper than in Greece. It will also help you save time, as you won't have to spend extra time shopping in Manhattan. Our guide will give you the necessary advice to see as many shops as possible, making appropriate use of your time according to your shopping interest. Along with your membership, you get a $10 VIP Coupons Book for extra perks and discounts and a map to mark the top stores that interest you. Again, if shopping is not your forte, we suggest a stroll through Soho, Chelsea with its local market and East village, which was home to high society until 1900, then populated by immigrants and from the 1950s onwards the area became a mecca for the Beatles, hippies and punk generation. The East village became a laboratory for experimentation and new trends.

Day 6: New York - New Orleans

Departure and flight to New Orleans. Arrival and check-in at our hotel. First acquaintance with the European city, so different from other American cities, which is full of vitality and seems to live in the past. New Orleans, founded by the French, is famous for its unique music, considered the home of jazz, for its Creole cuisine and for its annual carnival, known as "Mardi Gras". For the evening, we suggest you walk along the world famous Bourbon Street, the historic heart of the city known to all as the "French Quarter". This street is the liveliest street in the city, the street of entertainment where Louis Armstrong took his first steps. Here you can enjoy a drink in one of the many bars with live jazz and blues music recommended by your guide.

Day 7: New Orleans - Tour.

Tour of atmospheric New Orleans, the cradle of jazz music, on whose streets dozens of musicians were nurtured. New Orleans, the Big Easy, the "big carefree" as it is nicknamed, is a liberal and open city. The various races and cultures that make it up give it vibrancy. Today's tour will begin with the French Quarter, where we'll see the colonial-style mansions with their lacy ornate wrought-iron balcony railings, wooden shutters and pastel-colored walls. The slow tram feature in the centre of Old Town challenges us for a ride, which includes Jackson Square, which is filled with street vendors where they set their own pace in the city, the old City Hall, the old Bishop's Building and the historic St. Louis Church. We continue to General Lee's Square and the upscale downtown Garden District, created by newcomer Americans after the French purchased Louisiana, whose streets bear names from Greek mythology. In this district, you will see many mansions with beautiful gardens, the magnificent Superdom and more. Completing your tour of the city, we suggest you board a riverboat and enjoy a cruise on the Mississippi. The best option is the Natchez, the ship where she is arguably the champion of the Mississippi as she had never lost a race. The cruise is about 2 hours long and comes with live jazz music and food if you choose. Otherwise, you can visit City Park, the city park, which will impress you both for its size and its similarity, even in shape, to New York's Central Park. For the evening we suggest a visit to the World Trade Center "Plimsoll Club" to see the illuminated city and the Mississippi from above, or else you can visit Frenchmen Street, where mostly the locals are entertained and enjoy your drink there to the sounds of course of jazz music. 

Day 8: New Orleans (optional excursions) 


We suggest a full day excursion, where we are transported back to the Old South and see the high life lived by slave owners and the hard life of slaves on the historic old sugar plantation. As we wander around the immaculately manicured estate with its impressive trees and enter the elegant big house, we get a sense of how privileged their lives were. In contrast to the life of the owners, we will realize the cruelty suffered by the other inhabitants of the plantation, the slaves. There we will discover the human stories behind the structures. The most famous of all is Oak Alley Plantation, which will impress you. 


Another suggestion is to tour the history of black magic within the city referred to as "the most haunted city in America ", as these stories are an integral part of it. The stories and urban legends behind some of the amazing buildings in the area will "spook you out". On this tour we will have the opportunity to visit several haunted buildings where we will learn the story behind them, many of which have been featured on The History Channel and The Discovery Channel. The tour does not guarantee that you will definitely see ghosts - but it will certainly bring you close to them! 

Day 9 - 10: New Orleans - Athens 

Departure for the airport and a connecting flight to Athens. Arrive at the airport with a heavy load of beautiful memories. A trip that will surely stay with you for a lifetime, having experienced both the metropolis of the world and the rhythmic New Orleans.
