Meet your ACIS Tour Manager at the American Museum of Natural History and visit the Hall of Mexico and Central America, as well the South American Peoples’ exhibits. Depart on a brief city orientation tour before ending your day with a four-course dinner and a real jousting tournament in the replica Spanish castle of Count Don Raimundo II at Medieval Times.
After breakfast, depart for the Cloisters, a world-famous museum of medieval art in Fort Tryon Park, at the northern tip of Manhattan. Next, transfer to Rockefeller Center, followed by a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Your visit will begin with a short orientation in the 16th century Velez Blanco Patio, followed by time to view the works of the Spanish Masters from the Met's collection of 3,000 European paintings, including Goya, El Greco, Velázquez and Picasso. Tonight, enjoy dinner at a Cuban Restaurant in Times Square. After dinner, transfer to a nearby dance studio in the shadow of the Empire State Building for a Salsa dance lesson.
Transfer to the World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan where you will enter the tree-lined National September 11 Memorial and walk to the two pools constructed in the footprints of the towers that were destroyed on September 11, 2001. Next walk next door to The World Trade Center for a 60-second, 100-story ascent to the top of the newly completed One World Observatory for a stunning, panoramic view of the whole of Manhattan Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Back at sea level, visit the Oculus, the World Trade Center's massive, white steel and marble transportation hub before boarding the bus for home.
