Vintage darlings Pandora and Jenny take you back in time to NYC in the glamorous decades of the, 1920s, 30s and 40s and show you where the old Hollywood, Broadway and film stars and high society lived and played. You begin at the Algonquin Hotel where the members of the Round Table met, from there we visit locations associated with Katherine Hepburn, Greta Garbo, Marilyn Monroe, Tallulah Bankhead, James Dean and many more. Sights: the Katherine Hepburn Garden and The Monkey Bar among others. Tour duration: 3 hours. Tour starts with the Round Table literary at the Algonquin, followed by the Iroquois Hotel, the Harvard Club and the Waldorf as we tell some hidden stories about their residents. Nest stop: the house where Katherine Hepburn lived for 60 years and her garden which is public but unknown to most New Yorkers. Next we walk past the actual site of Marilyn's famous subway grate scene and walk to The Monkey Bar where we can purchase a refreshment and snack if desired. The next stops are residences lived in by Greta Garbo, Tallulah Bankhead and Billie Holiday and finally the Barbizon, home to Little Edie and Grace Kelly. Along the way we will also discover some of the amazing art deco architecture as well as some hidden secrets! Finally we visit the house where Audrey Hepburn's character Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany lived. Definitely an instagramable moment.
