Our itineraries are designed to bring you authentic experiences of New York City neighborhoods and major attractions such as SoHo, the 9/11 Memorial, Times Square, and much more. We travel by foot, subway and public buses just like native New Yorkers would. You’ll see so much more in a shorter amount of time on our walking tours.


Our guides are fun, engaging and knowledgeable. We want your experience to be memorable through the stories you hear, the things you learn or the personal connections made. To get the best guides, we take the most promising talent, put them through a rigorous training process and monitor the quality of their tours.


"It was one of the best decision to make this tour! I loved your tour guide Rachel, cause she did a great job. We had so much fun, learned a lot about soho, little italy and the mafi... Oh sorry family;) Rachel was so great. We will tell our friends for their next visit to book a tour with Rachel. Rachel, we wish you the best for your artist career!"

"This was my 3rd or so visit to the sites in NYC... I used to walk by the sites at Castle Clinton and gaze past the swarms of tourists waiting to board the boats to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, thinking anyone who waits in those lines are crazy. But, it being our 10th wedding anniversary, and the 8:30am show-up time, made my dreams a reality with the early hour and Tommy's guidance. We never felt rushed during the tour, he was a great knowledgeable guide with a sense of humor."


"Remy walked us through Greenwich Village, highlighting famous tales, people and protests that happened in the area over the years. He took us past The Washington Square Hotel where Bob Dylan... and many famous artists/musicians lived in the past. We saw Washington Square, of the James Joyce novel. Remy was very enthusiastic about the area and this shone through in the many stories and obvious knowledge he had of the area both historical and now."

"I have been to Liberty and Ellis Island several times, but NEVER did I learn so much history. The tour was incredible because of our tour guide, George McKenzie. I am so thankful I booked this trip with Viator and thankful we had George for our guide. I was so impressed that I told him I would book it again when I bring my grandson later... is a real history buff and would really enjoy the history lesson..."

"We had a fabulous day on our New York tour with our amazing guide, Linda! Not only did we see more than we could have hoped for, she also gave us tips and information on how to get the most out of the rest of our vacation. We couldn't have asked for a better tour and I highly recommend this company"


"Brigid was a great Broadway host! My wife and I had a great time and learned a lot of interesting facts and stories about Broadway during an easy stroll through the famed theater district. Brigid was cute, energetic, thoughtful, and knowledgeable about Broadway making our tour one of the highlights of our NYC trip."


"Five Stars All the Way! If you want a fun and informative couple of hours through these burbs this tour is for you! It was very relaxed and the walking pace was very reasonable, lots of stops where we would get the scoop on different historic sites. Not boring as I had 2 eighteen year olds and it kept them interested! "
