The Hamptons, Sag Harbor and Outlet Shopping Day Trip from New York City
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Cooper's Beach, 268 Meadow Ln, Southampton, NY 11968-4600
We depart New York East through the borough of Queens leaving the hustle and bustle of the big city behind. We begin to appreciate why the rich and famous chose to make Long Island their own personal playground when the scenery transforms from tall buildings to magnificent landscaping and gorgeous flowers in the springtime. We then continue east passing the Long Island Duck before arriving to the famous Southampton where residents such as Jerry Seinfeld, Paris Hilton, David Letterman, Steven Spielberg and others have made it their home. This is definitely the place to see and be seen.
We then stroll down the picturesque main street, before heading down through the historical area the harbor and along ocean drive, passing some of the homes of the rich and famous along the way.

We continue to one of the oldest and best wineries in Southampton, where you will enjoy complimentary wine tasting.

We had heard of The Hamptons where the rich and famous have homes but have never visited this area.Very much a contrast of pretty Long Island villages and expensive mansions on the shoreline.Had a full day of sightseeing , shopping and a visit to a vineyard for wine tasting, Bruno our guide for the day and Mario our excellent driver kept us informed and safely transported throughout a very full day. Thankyou to both of them.Well up to the usual high standard we expect on a Viator trip.
Was going to take pic by the vineyard.but guide was rushing as "we gota move ladies, were lateTrip to outlet, was not enough, the long walks between shop squeezd in 1.5hrs was too fast. Someone was smoking behind us at the bus 3x. Guide didnt reprimand her
Great day out, would not recommend going this far out of season as most of Sag Harbour and Southampton was closed. Tour guide had a lot of knowledge. The outlet centre was very good.
Though I'm glad I took this trip, there were pros and cons. I was happy for a refresher on some of Long Island since it had been many years since I last was there. The bus was comfortable. It was lovely weather and I enjoyed each of our stops: Southampton Beach and town, Sag Harbor where I had a very lovely lunch at The American Hotel. A bartender there provided some info about visiting Long Island that wasn't mentioned on the tour, and I really appreciated his info. The tour info focused on how difficult and very costly to visit the area, and the rich/famous people who live or summer there. The stop at the Winery for a wine-tasting was friendly and informative. A couple of hours stop at the discount mall was fine. Though I could have skipped this with all the shopping in NY, I can see where it was a really nice perk for some guests. Some improvements I'd recommend: it would be a nice, welcoming gesture to provide a small bottle of water to guests. But perhaps they don't since you can't use the bus' toilet. . . . ??? It was a turn-off that the first announcement on the bus was about this. Were I traveling with my elderly but active mother, we would have wanted to know this before booking. It's a long bus ride with no option for a toilet and I imagine this would cause some people stress. I don't think it was necessary to emphasize throughout the day that if you weren't back at departure time, the bus would not wait AT ALL and would leave without you. The guide even told us how much it would cost if we had to find a cab back. I'm a prompt person and this had me checking the time all day vs. just having a relaxing time. I understand needing to make an announcement, but I thought the lack of diplomacy set a negative tone. Some of us joked about it throughout the day: don't be late! they won't wait! It would have been nice to have some small effort to connect the people in the group since there were people from many different places. It was a nice touch that a couple of Billy Joel's songs were played as we approached NY on our return.
Really great tour, great guides,. But spent far too long at the outlet stores. Would rather have spent more time in the various towns.
Glad I did it, but 4 hours of the day was getting to and from the area and made it a long day. Also, it was the end of the season, so a lot of shops and restaurants had closed. That being said, the tour of the great houses, beach and wine tasting were very good. The Tanger Outlets were a highlight, but again because of the need to battle the traffic back to New York, this felt a little rushed, although I don't have too many suggestions if you want to take it all in. Crew were very knowledgable and professional.
Fun day by the sea. End of September, shops closed and no locals in sight. But fun to see the luxurious homes of the rich. And to breath some fresh air, after a long stay in NYC.
Second time we have done this. It poured with rain the first time but better luck this time. It is a long day but well worth it. First time the guide was excellent, but second time a bit ordinary. Luck of the draw.
