New York Neighborhood Tours

As New Yorkers, we saw a better way to tour the Big Apple based on how we would take our friends and family when they visit NYC. Be immersed in authentic New York neighborhoods where vibrant worlds emerge around every corner with stories and people you'll remember.

spring street sohoWhere else in the world can you find three culturally-distinct neighborhoods with rich histories in the span of several blocks? Come explore this dynamic cultural hot spot in the heart of New York City on our best-selling SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown Tour. Walk down the beautiful cobblestone SoHo streets lined with cast-iron buildings that house boutiques and galleries. Hear about the underground gang wars of Chinatown's early immigrants. And sample the sights, sounds, and smells of authentic Italian culture and cuisine.

central park sights No visit to Manhattan is complete without stepping foot in Central Park- both the greatest example of urban planning in American history as well as a masterpiece of 19th century art and landscape architecture. The Central Park Tour is great year-round. As you traverse the winding scenic paths, you'll learn about the park's incredible history from an urban design viewpoint to its iconic role in American pop culture.

visit broadwayThe Broadway and Times Square Tour gives you an inside perspective of what it's like to work in the industry. Told exclusively by our guides who are professional actors, singers, and directors, and have experience in Broadway- you'll see Times Square and discover how the neighborhood transformed from a horse trading district into the Entertainment Capital of the World. You'll hear the backstage stories of the famous people who performed over the decades, successful shows and flops, and ghost stories!

walk the high line Come take a walk on the high side on the High Line and Chelsea Tour. Whether you’re interested in history, architecture, nature, or just people watching, the High Line has it all! This scenic 1.5 mile-long urban park, formerly a historic freight rail line from the early 20th century, is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. In the neighborhoods of Chelsea and Meatpacking District, you'll be guided through New York City's industrial past where trains would roll right up inside factories and warehouses, and see how they transformed into chic hotels, clubs, galleries, and food markets.

washington square park It's no wonder that New Yorkers love the "Village" most of all the districts in Manhattan. Greenwich Village is the bohemian capital of the world. On the Greenwich Village Tour, you'll learn how it earned its freewheelin' reputation over the decades from the beatniks, bohemians, artists, musicians, and intellectuals who lived and performed around Washington Square Park. Generations of protesters started the movements (gay rights, anti-war, workers' rights) that changed America's culture and laws right here!

Statue of Liberty Tours

statue of liberty tickets and hours Click here to compare the three ways you can experience the Statue of Liberty.

On the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Tour, your guide will share the stories of the millions of immigrants who passed through Ellis while touring the Statue of Liberty Museum, a walk up to the pedestal for panoramic views of downtown Manhattan, and Ellis Island where you'll visit the Immigration Center for a look at our country's past.

911 memorial visit Want to see the top 3 downtown destinations at once? Save time and see more on our comprehensive 9/11 Memorial, Wall Street Tour plus Statue of Liberty Access. Meet your guide in the Financial District to learn about the history of NYC, the early Dutch settlement and how it transformed to the financial capital it is today. As you tour Wall Street, you’ll see the New York Stock Exchange, Federal Reserve Bank and other historical financial institutions. Next stop is the 9/11 National Memorial where you’ll see the enormous reflecting pools. You’ll hear stories of the events, tragedy and heroism of that day.

We offer an exclusive Hard Hat Tour upgrade in addition to the Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Tour where you'll visit Ellis Island abandoned hospital complex. It was one of the most advanced hospitals in the country at the time, and has since sat neglected and off-limits for decades, until now. Hospitals, morgues, infectious disease wards, and staff housing sit eerily empty and dilapidated. Visitors on the Hard Hat tour are able to touch, feel, and understand what they represent in a way that connects them to the past.
