New York City Bus Trip – Tuesday, April 12

“New York is not a city – it’s a world.” — Iman

One of the major highlights of the Finland Exchange is our Bus Trip to New York City. Set for Tuesday, April 12 – this is a day packed with all things Big Apple. The cost of $XX per person covers your round trip bus ticket, a highly-rated boat tour of the island with Circle Cruises, and a free day of fun in the best city in the world (after Philadelphia and Helsinki, of course.)

“It’s pretty cliched, but Times Square is just incredible.
You really feel like you’re in the capital of the world.”
