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. No need to wait in line at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum to see the Space Shuttle Enterprise – skip-the-line and get into the exhibit before the crowds. Visit the 9/11 Memorial and spend time at the twin reflecting pools that sit exactly where the Twin Towers once stood.

Find out more about these two exclusive sightseeing tours that you won’t want to miss.

It’s so liberating — gather and ditch the old before ushering in the new. Shredders and sledgehammers will be provided. 12 noon-1pm
