Revisit an era of lavish country mansions, elegant estates, breathtaking architecture, and picturesque landscapes on Long Island’s Gold Coast. Start your tour with a visit to the Vanderbilt Museum, the summer home of  William K. Vanderbilt: a Spanish-style mansion named Eagle's Nest, originally built in 1910 as a small English cottage. Enjoy lunch on your own at picturesque Huntington Village. Finally, delight in the elegant furnishings and beautifully landscaped gardens at Old Westbury Gardens, the backdrop for a number of popular movies, such as Age of Innocence, Cruel Intentions and American Gangster. 

The MTA Deal

$62.25 per person ($51.25 for children 5-11). The tour includes round-trip rail and bus transportation, admission to the Vanderbilt Museum and Old Westbury Gardens, and a stop at Huntington Village (on your own) on May 14, 2022

Important Information

Tickets may be purchased at Gray, Green or Blue Ticket Machines (through May 12 only) and ticket windows at LIRR stations. Select "MTA Away Deals," then, "Escorted Tours," then the tour.
