NEW YORK: The Empire State

New York City

A Custom Tours, Inc. motorcoach tour of New York City is an unforgettable adventure made even more special by a professional, knowledgeable, and city-experienced tour guide. Please take advantage of Custom Tours’ New York “roots,” and our expertise with touring The Big Apple. We truly enjoy planning 1–5 night city itineraries for travel professionals. We can show you as much of this fabulous city as you wish, allowing for cultural and ethnic experiences, visits to the “must see and do” attractions, as well as some hidden treasures we have tucked up our sleeve. We can lodge you in the heart of Manhattan or just outside the city in New Jersey, 6–10 miles from Manhattan.

There is no other place like New York City!  The “Razzle-Dazzle” City offers everything and anything. If you can’t find it in New York, then it doesn’t exist!

Hudson River Valley

In 2013, National Geographic Traveler proclaimed the Hudson River Valley as one of the top 20 destinations in the world. Designated as a National Heritage Area, the valley is steeped in history, natural beauty, culture, and culinary delights. The Rockefellers and Roosevelts had “cottages” here and the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) has an amazing campus with 3 restaurants that are available for your group’s luncheon or dinner needs. The spectacular views of the Hudson River are clearly visible from most attractions and certainly from West Point, the famed naval academy, which also welcomes your coaches and provides an amazing tour. For a step back into history, the Hudson River Valley is a great destination on its own or combined with New York City or enroute to or from New England.

Finger Lakes

We began our receptive coverage here in 2011, with the same passion and attention to detail that we are renowned for.

This spectacular region of New York State is a 9,000 square mile area set against a backdrop of Mother Nature at its best, including waterfalls and gorges, rolling hills, 11 glacial lakes and one Great Lake. Each lake is connected by rivers that lead into Lake Ontario. The Erie Canal runs through the Finger Lakes to the north.

Culture, history, and fine dining all combine to make this region so very appealing for the motorcoach traveler. From the JELL-O Museum to the Eastman Museum (Kodak) and the National Soaring Museum, not to mention the Women’s Rights National Historic Park and, of course, the Wine Trail, there is truly something for everyone in the Finger Lakes. Did you know that the Finger Lakes Wine Country is considered – believe it or not – to rival California’s Napa and Sonoma Counties? Fine cuisine is also an important part of the Finger Lakes and we have found some exquisite restaurants to share with you.

Our amazing local guide will bring the history, folklore, and culture to life for your loyal travelers, ensuring a fun and fascinating experience.

Lake Placid

This small village in the heart of the Adirondacks has a population of just under 3,000 year-round residents. The village itself is fun to explore as is the surrounding spectacular region, brought to life by our wonderful local guide. Explore one of the largest ice arena complexes in the world, featuring four indoor ice rinks at the Olympic Center. Visit the 1932 Olympic Arena as well as the 1980 Arena, the site of the US Ice Hockey Team’s historic victory over the Soviet Union. Capture the excitement of the 1932 and 1980 Olympic Winter Games at the Winter Olympic Museum. Visit the Olympic Jumping Complex where ski jumping and freestyle training and competitions happen year-round. Ride the chairlift and elevator to the sky deck atop the 26-story, 120m jump tower for a ski jumper’s view of the jump ramp and the spectacular views of the surrounding High Peaks.
