Jay-Z and Beyonce are in the news for all the beautiful reasons as they rented out an entire bus for a private family tour of New York City. 

The New York native and the Halo songstress were seen smiling from inside a Tea Around Town tour bus as they took in the holiday decor across the Big Apple.

Beyoncé looked lovely in a black top with a matching head wrap and sunglasses, while her daughter, Blue Ivy smiled in a white sweater.

The Empire State Of Mind rapper’s mother, Gloria Carter, also tagged along on the second floor of the pink double-decker bus, wearing an all-yellow outfit and a matching yellow fascinator.

The couple had fun enjoying the festive sightseeing along with their children and family members. They made sure to hit popular holiday spots such as the iconic Christmas tree at the Rockefeller Centre and the over-the-top window decorations at Saks Fifth Avenue. 

The family of five also made their way around Times Square and Bryant Park in the course of their daytime tour.

Earlier in the day, Blue Ivy was spotted with her friends enjoying a lunch date at Serendipity 3. 

An insider revealed that Blue Ivy was supposed to be joined by her younger siblings, Sir and Rumi Carter, but the 6-year-old twins did not show up due to the excessive paparazzi outside the restaurant. 

Blue Ivy, sporting a black hooded coat and jeans, ate a cheeseburger and their classic Frrrozen Hot Chocolate while making “funny videos on her phone.”

“Beyoncé’s bodyguard, Julius de Boer, was around to block people from snapping any pics of the pre-teen,” the source added.

The emergence of the Carters in New York City follows a luxe birthday bash arranged for Jay-Z at Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte vineyards in Bordeaux, France.

Beyonce, having had a busy year, held two A-list-filled premieres in Los Angeles and London, after her “Renaissance” concert film of the same name hit theaters on December 1, 2023.
