Vox City Walks, part of Vox Group, is launching its new Hop-on Hop-off walking tour concept in New York, following the signing of an exclusive partnership with Grayline City Sightseeing New York.
The collaboration will see New York’s largest operator of hop-on hop-off bus tours, boat tours and sightseeing excursions, welcome the Vox City Walks brand to its extensive portfolio this summer.
Guests will be able to flexibly discover New York’s most treasured and iconic landmarks, across a wide selection of guided and self-guided walking routes. All of the city’s major sights, including the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brooklyn Bridge and Rockefeller Centre, will be discovered across either daytime or evening itineraries.
They will also enjoy fascinating storytelling from local guides throughout their experiences, whether they’re strolling through the bustling Times Square, taking in the scenery at Central Park, or uncovering historic events at the 9/11 Memorial.
All guided and self-guided walking routes will be included in the price of 24, 48 and 72 hour tickets.
Customers will enjoy live commentary in English from their local guide, as well as pre-recorded audio commentary in English, Chinese, German, French, Italian and Spanish, through the Vox City app.
