Superheroes Tour in New YorkBuy tickets now
The Superheroes Tour in New York is highly recommended for all fans of Marvel and DC comics. During this three-hour-long bus tour, you pass more than 40 locations that you will recognise from your favourite films and series, such as Spider-Man, The Avengers, Iron Fist and The Dark Knight Rises. The tour guide tells you all the ins and outs of the locations as you pass, while on the screens on the bus, you watch clips that were filmed in these places.
Superheroes in Midtown Manhattan
The Superheroes Tour in New York begins at a comic book store in Midtown Manhattan. Here you will be welcomed by your guide, who, most of the time is dressed up in the style of the tour (my guide wore a Superman cape and carried the hammer of Thor). Make sure that you arrive within plenty of time so you can take a look around the store. Then you board the bus and the adventure begins right away, on Times Square. Here you will see, amongst other things, the place where Spider-Man fought Electro and saved Mary Jane Watson. The bus then takes you via the Public Library and Grand Central Terminal to the first stop: The Daily News Building. You will probably recognise this building as the Daily Planet from Superman: The Movie. From here you will also see the Chrysler Building, the place where the Silver Surfer escaped in Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. The bus then continues on to Park Avenue, which is where The Battle of New York took place in The Avengers.
Flatiron District and the Statue of Liberty
The next stop is at the Flatiron Building, this remarkable building was used in Spider-Man as the Daily Bugle headquarters. Via the Lower East Side and Chinatown, where Danny Rand fought for his life in Iron Fist, you head on to the Financial District. Here you will pass various places, including the location of the last fight between Batman and Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. The tour comes to an end in Battery Park, where you can take photos of the Statue of Liberty (as seen in X-Men and Superman: The Movie). A little further along, you can step aboard the free Staten Island Ferry, that Spider-Man tried to hold together in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
