If you’re planning on visiting New York City soon (or sometime in the future), we just found out about two exclusive must-see sightseeing tours that you may want to check out. Be one of the lucky people to experience the Statue of Liberty up close (only a limited number of visitors are permitted per day). Feel like a VIP – get early access to the top of the Empire State Building before the tourists arrive.
