Why tour the “Big Apple” /New York City for our annual band trip with Ready Travel?
At Ready Tour and Travel we will and have designed many memorable trips to New York. The reason to choose us over the competition is simple. Tom and Kathy Ready of Ready Travel exclusively seek out and visit the attractions that we will provide for you on tour as requested. We have explored and want you to have the same experience we did when visiting the sites that make your trips the one of a lifetime.
If you want to go to the top of Rockefeller Plaza tower we have done so and we want you group to see the “Top of the Rock” It is near midtown New York and the view is breathtaking. We arrange all tickets and reservation so we can smoothly get to the top and take photos with our friends.
Guided Tours by Local Experts
To better understand the history of the city, we hire only the best guides for our guided tours. We hire people like our favorite guide Josh. He was a taxi driver while attending College, once he graduated, he taught history for 32 years on the city. Now that he is retired he has guided many groups of people. Boy!! Does he know New York! He can tell us the best restaurants, show us the changes in architecture as the city grew in the 1800’s. He is great.
We also have a friend that had done guiding on our motor coaches for over 30 years. Her guide group is residents of the city and guess what? Her husband manages the Empire State building. How is that for connections…?
Broadway theatre is the best in New York. We can get you tickets to the best shows and times. We just need to have an advance date to secure the tickets or shows you want. We have been working with the same ticket outlet for many years. He is a friend of mine and we have spent lots of time trying to get our customers the best performances ever.
Different food is also a must in NYC. Be it a big Italian dish in Little Italy cooked by the best Italian cook in the area, you will be surprised his menu and the free entertainment he offers to the students during dinner. We can make other options also, a four course meal at Heartland brewery right on 8th avenue or a quick sandwich takeout at a corner deli. We have eaten at them all. Even New York Style pizza. The best.
Band Competitions and More…
And for performing groups, we know and have arranged professional music professors to work with your bands and choirs to help them understand music better. We can also arrange professional contests if the band desires.
The Right Hotels
When we choose hotels, we visit them to be sure they are of our expectations; we want modern, safe enjoyable properties with the amenities you expect in the hotel. We can stay in the city for convenience or travel outside of the city to help with costs.
As you can see, Kathy and I have lots of knowledge and experience in New York. When a group decides to travel to a different destination with us we personally take the time to see the sites, work out the logistics of the tour to maximize your expectation to keep in budget for the trip.
