On this half-day coach tour you will see the Bronx as it really is, a borough of diverse ethnic groups and neighborhoods, of great cultural institutions, an area of surprising natural beauty, of rolling hills and parks and parkways, a peninsula the size of San Francisco and the only New York City borough attached to the U.S. mainland.

Explore its twenty-block-long Grand Concourse - a broad boulevard lined with fine 1920's Art Deco apartment buildings. See America's largest urban zoo, the Bronx Zoo, south of the New York Botanical Garden, a national historical landmark. Get a glimpse of Edgar Allan Poe's cottage in Poe Park, where the poet penned "The Bells" and "Annabel Lee."

Stop in the Bronx's Little Italy for an authentic espresso and visit its colorful, indoor food market on lively Arthur Avenue. See Fordham University, the largest Jesuit University in America, and admire its Collegiate Gothic campus. Drive by Yankee Stadium, the home of the legendary Bronx Bombers, the New York Yankees.

In the North Bronx you will discover the hilly secluded enclaves of Fieldston and Riverdale. Stop at Wave Hill, a former country estate where John F. Kennedy, Arturo Toscanini and Theodore Roosevelt once lived and stroll through its enchanting gardens while overlooking the Hudson River and the majestic cliffs of the New Jersey Palisades.

At this point you'll never know that you're still in New York!

The guide was very informative and approachable. Overall a very good tour. Thank you.

Reviewed by: Stacy P, USA, December 2012

I am very glad that I had the opportunity to explore the Bronx. An organized tour is the way to go since it is so widespread, and public transit isn't as accessible as Manhattan. The tour guides are quite knowledgeable about the history, and they give the traveler ample time to explore at each of the stops.
