The Downtown Experience is a new product from The Ride NYC and we got to check it out for you! The Ride offers tours in midtown Manhattan and now downtown as well. The Downtown Experience is much more historical than The Ride in midtown. If you are looking to learn more about how New York came to be, this is for you! Enjoy the state of the art tour bus with theater stadium seating and your experience is also enhanced through virtual reality visualizations.
The Downtown Experience begins at the South St. Seaport. You will learn about the most noteworthy historic events that happened at this location and how it helped shape the downtown area. You will then board the state of the art bus and the theatrically guided tour. The tour features iconic landmarks such as the Brooklyn Bridge, Governor’s Island, New York Harbor & the Statue of Liberty, Battery Park, 9/11 Memorial, One World Trade Center and Observatory, and City Hall. As you stop at some of these locations, your experience will also be enhanced through virtual reality visualizations.
After completing the Downtown Experience, you will be dropped off right at South St. Seaport. The Seaport is a great place to visit for something to eat or to shop!
A great perk of this tour is you do not need to worry about the weather. The bus is climate controlled during all seasons/weather conditions. They also have up to 2 rides per day so it can be easier to fit into you schedule during your visit. Make sure you have your tickets ready when you get into line and get to 200 Water St. at least 15 minutes before your boarding time. Book your tour now to experience this thrilling tour!
