Praise From
Our Travelers

I've been a 10 plus year group leader with Friendship Tours & The Ship Shop and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for day trips, overnights and cruises. We can always be sure that if the "Friendship Family" is involved it will be a organized, safe and enjoyable trip.

It's the best of the Bronx! Wave Hill and Chihuly at New York Botanical Garden

Wave Hill

Wave Hill is a spectacular 28 acre garden and cultural center overlooking the Palisades and the Hudson River. The great plantsmanship of long time horticulturalist Marco Polo Stefano produced a magical garden throughout the 28 acres: Pergola & Vistas across the Hudson River, Wild Garden, Alpine, Special Collections, award winning green houses, a great variety of unusual plants, truly a place to explore and savor. Enjoy a special guided tour!

We’ll have time to have lunch (on own) at the new café in the newly restored Wave Hill House and mansion.

Chihuly at NYBG

For the first time in more than ten years, the artwork of world-renowned sculptor Dale Chihuly will be featured in a major exhibition in New York. The dramatic vistas of the NYBG will be a showcase for Chihuly’s dynamic works of art. New hand-blown glass sculptures, created especially for NYBG will complement the architecture of the Conservatory, itself a work of glass art. These one-of-a-kind installations will highlight the connection of artwork to the natural world. There will also be an exhibition of Chihuly drawings depicting the energy behind his artistic process.

Spend the afternoon on your own to enjoy the exhibit and grounds. Your “All Garden Pass” includes the hop-on, hop-off narrated tram, allowing you to see the entire garden.
