NYCVP Balloon Inflation TourBalloon Inflation Tour

When you think of the Thanksgiving Parade in New York City, the first thing you think about are the spectacular balloons. What most people don’t know is that on the Wednesday before the parade, the balloons are inflated in the area around the American Museum of Natural History on the Upper West Side. With this package, a licensed NYC tour guide will meet you at a convenient Midtown location and escort you on a climate-controlled motorcoach to the Thanksgiving Parade Balloon Inflation area (with tour commentary on the ride up) so you can see just how much helium it actually takes to make all your favorite characters fly as high as they do on parade day

The Ride

On THE RIDE you’ve got front row seats as the streets of New York become a stage. Famous NYC landmarks are a backdrop to a live show with unparalleled technology, fun facts and amazing street performances. Riders will board THE RIDE, a super-sized, technologically amped-up vehicle that travels the streets of New York. With stadium-style, sideways seating and massive windows, riders have front row seats to the big city. You never know what you’ll see or who you’ll meet along the 4.2-mile route. No matter how many times you take THE RIDE, it’s never the same show twice.

NYC Holiday Events - Stay WarmStay Warm Thanksgiving Breakfast

If the sights and sounds of the Thanksgiving Parade don’t take your breath away, the cold November-in-New-York air just might.  NYCVP knows that sometimes the weather might take the fun out of an otherwise bucket-list event, and that’s why we host our Stay Warm event inside O’Briens Irish Pub and Pig ‘n Whistle. The breakfast buffet starts at 8:00am. With the Stay Warm Breakfast you can be out on the street to hear the music and see they balloons and floats pass by, but you’ll also have the added bonus of being able to retreat to a warm place to pause, get a hot beverage, and access a restroom before heading back out to the parade. *Be advised that there is no view of the parade from inside the venue.

Holiday Lights Deluxe Motorcoach TourHoliday Lights and Sights Tour

Thanksgiving in New York City isn’t just about Thanksgiving—it’s the start of the holiday season! Once Santa Claus crosses the Thanksgiving Day Parade finish line at Herald Square, Christmas is just around the corner. This tour is one of our most popular for a reason. The holiday season in NYC has always been known as magical, with a special shine coming to all of New York’s City most beloved store and squares.  NYCVP’s Holiday Lights Tour is a fully guided and narrated motorcoach tour where you’ll not only get to see some of the most famous department store displays (like  Bloomingdale’s, Barney’s, Saks 5th Avenue and more), but hear all about the rich history of this cherished holiday tradition.
