New York Activities

During your stay in New York, we will organise activities to make sure you have the best possible EBS experience. All of the activities below are optional as they are outside of course hours. Some activities come with additional fees; however the free ones are definitely worth attending!

Scavenger Hunt Around The City.

New York holds so many secrets, we will let you in on some of them as we tour this fascinating city.

Empire State/ Rockefeller Tour

Get a spectacular bird’s eye view of the Big Apple as we go to the top of one of these two iconic skyscrapers.   

Brewery/Distillery Tour

Get a  behind the scenes look at some of the city’s leading breweries and distilleries. We will go on a tour to see just how these fantastic products are made, and maybe even taste the final product!

Statue of Liberty/ Ellis Island

Visit Ellis Island and get a selfie with one of the world’s most iconic statues, Lady Liberty. If you’re really lucky, you can reserve to see the city through the statue’s crown…it’s only 354 stairs to the top!
