Discover New York by Foot

When you are a New Yorker, you get to experience so many interesting things artistically, architecturally, culturally and historically on the regular. New York is home to some of the greatest theaters, concert halls, restaurants, landmarks, museums, galleries and private arts collections. Some of the most important milestones in our nation’s History will forever be linked to New York even back to the Native Americans time. Plus, not only the city has influenced this country, but NYC’s reach far exceeds any geographical and administrative border reaching people from across the entire globe. An International Metropolis like no other with over 8 million residents, 55 million visitors annually, 800 spoken language, so many ethnicities and so many different cousins … we all know the numbers by hearth.

Today, New York is possibly one of the most financially and culturally important cities in the World and one of the most visited destinations; every day, the Big Apple and Lady Liberty great people with arms wide open catering to all tastes and needs! Don’t miss the opportunity to explore NYC escorted by your very own official tour guide.

A word from our Tour Guide Irene


"Hi everyone, I'm Irene. I live in New York and I'm in love with my city. To deepen her knowledge I decided to enroll in the course for Official Guides, I passed the exam and I thought of selection of exclusive Itineraries to help you discover and live the different “faces” New York shows on a daily basis … On average these tours last approx..4 hours, with some exceptions, and they are focus on discovering couple of neighborhoods at the time. As we all know, walking is the way to go in the city … Nothing like walking mile after mile, we’ll ever take you closer to the spirit of the Big Apple. To enjoy the areas to the fullest without overdoing it, I always recommend staying within 4 hours per tour, 6 hours for experienced walkers …. That’s because, we walk a lot and use transportation only when needed; it’s important to pace ourselves otherwise we might just end up overly exhausted and lose appreciation of all that surrounds us.

These are not some generic tours of New York. For those looking for a real panoramic Introductory Tour, I always suggest one of the Escorted Bus Tours (This one is a great choice: Half Day Guided City Tour of New York ) because there is just no way you can “see” all New York in half a day … However, if you are ready to dive into each “corner” of the city and dig a bit deeper, then these Walking Tours are for you!

Although, I tried to come up with tour ideas that cover a bit of everything in a fun and interesting way, if you have particular needs for places that are not here listed, some custom request, perhaps trace back to the origin of your family, and so on, feel free to email me, and we can work on your custom-made tour.

And for last, a word of advice, don’t ever believe people that tell you they know everything about NYC, not even if it comes from Native New Yorkers … Not a day goes by that something changes around us, something gets knocked down, something raises up, and some historic fact gets unveiled … Even us “Locals” and professional Tour Guides never stop learning especially when interacting with visitors and other New Yorkers day in and day out … After all, this is exactly what makes NY incredible in the first place, you never have a dull moment!

The tours are available every-day, rain or shine; in case of inclement weather the tour will be rescheduled to the first available day. All transportations are to be paid on the spot (price not included in the tour price). Each Tour will list the method of transportation suggest from Subway, to Water Taxi (not expensive!), Buses and perhaps a cab. The Tour Guide will help all customers in purchasing MTA cards if needed, or re-load them.

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
