Thanksgiving Parade Viewing Party at Del Frisco's Customer Reviews

"Visited NYC over the Thanksgiving holiday. We booked our hotel, Del Frisco's parade watch party, dinner reservations, and Broadway show tickets through you. It was a great experience. Everything was seamless. Thanks for helping to make my son's first trip to the big apple one he will never forget." WVC

"Just wanted to email and thank NYCVP for making our recent Thanksgiving trip in New York City a very memorable and wonderful time! Everything was taken care of for us….we received all our travel documents in plenty of time, everything was included and easily documented. Upon arrival at our hotel in NYC, our reservation was correct, we checked in perfectly on time, great room, great hotel location, we will stay there again for sure. The day of our VIP brunch at Del Fresco’s, we followed the instructions, arrived on time and were welcomed upon entrance to the restaurant by the great serving staff, holding trays of cold mimosas as we entered! The brunch was wonderful, the service great, the view of the parade was perfect; best place to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade for sure! We had the best time! That evening the motor coach was waiting when we walked out of the hotel to take the group to see the city lights and sights on time, with a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide. Everything went well and every event on time and no chaos, every detail was handled. We will certainly use NYCVP again in the future for our NYC travel needs. Thank you for all your help in making this "bucket list" trip a trip of a lifetime we will never forget!" LAR, Tampa FL

"I just wanted to thank you guys for the best experience ever. We booked a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade insider tour [at Del Frisco's] and it was awesome!!! All the activities included were just incredible and we are already thinking of going back to do more things. Beth Tenenbaum was our booking agent and she was also able to get us excellent seating to the Rockettes and Wicked. We also got to meet Joel who we later found out is the Vice President for NYCVP. I have many friends that wanted details on how we booked this trip and I have referred them to your website. Thanks again!!!!!" Bobby S, Saint Inigoes MD

"Thank you for a great Thanksgiving vacation in New York city and great day at the Macy's parade. It was great to see the parade from an unobstructed view while enjoying a wonderful brunch at Del Frisco's steak house. Your arrangements for us were perfect. It was so nice to have everything pre-arranged. Thank you Beth!" Michelle C, Eugene OR

Important Information on Window and Parade Views: NYCVP cannot guarantee unobstructed views of the parade at any function; window and balcony railing views are "first-come, first-served". In order to provide maximum viewing space there is no table seating at the balcony railing. It is the intention of NYCVP to provide comfort and convenience during this special event, including food, private restroom facilities, warmth and indoor protection from the weather. Since streets are closed to traffic and pedestrian crossing, NYCVP will provide instructions for arriving in a timely manner at each event.

This is an inside event - there is no outside private viewing area. If you do choose to go outside you will be among the many thousands who gather to watch the parade. If you prefer to watch the parade from an outside sidewalk, you should discuss other options with your travel agent or NYCVP Personal Vacation Planner.

NYCVP considers this a family event. Therefore NYCVP, including its employees and agents, reserves the right to deny access to and/or remove with no refund individuals whom NYCVP deems unruly or disruptive.
