Long Island stretches 118 miles east from Manhattan into the Atlantic Ocean. The eastern end of Long Island contains two peninsulas that resemble a two prong fork. The Hamptons are located on the South Fork, including Easthampton – South Hampton – West Hampton – Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor.
On the North Fork, there are fishing villages, farms, Long Island Sound and over 40 vineyards and wineries for you to experience, including Greenport – Southold – Mattituck and Jamesport.
Dip your toes into the blue Atlantic Ocean, view lobster boats returning to harbor with their days catch, dine in an 18th Century Inn! Basically, you’ll be visiting New England villages and havens, yet you’ll never leave New York state. These breathtaking sites and locations are a minimum 90 minute drive from Manhattan.
This tour is designed for those who wish to visit Long Island and the Hamptons, where the white sand ocean beaches, small villages shops and well known mansions are located.
While out in the Hamptons, in addition, some of our guests have also shown interest in visiting a Long Island Winery or brewery as well on this tour. It’s all up to you, the length of your tour, and your schedule. There are also some wineries located on the South Fork for you to consider enjoying wine tasting.
This Tour is usually 8 – 10 hours, depending on how many stops you wish to make and how long you wish to see the beauty of the Hamptons and it’s mansions. It’s all up to you.
On your way out to the Hamptons, you may also be interested in seeing the Gold Coast Mansions of the North Shore of Long Island. While heading out to the Hamptons, you may arrange for a short stop to the ‘Gold Coast’ – where turn of the century ‘Gilded Age’ historical mansions are located. However, we recommend a separate day for our ‘Gold Coast Mansions’ tour, highlighting the summer and weekend homes of many wealthy 19th and early 20th century families. The extraordinary ‘Gold Coast’ tour would require a 4 – 6 hour touring time all depending on which mansions and how many of those you’d wish to visit.
