How to choose between walking tours in New York
How to choose the right Walking Tour
? It is not always easy to find the right tour especially in New York City. So many things to do, so many things to see
and, more often than not, not enough time
to do everything! Here, our Tour Guide Irene
will give you some tips and ideas
on how to choose the right tour, based on the areas and activities that interest you the most
. Irene is not only a professional and licensed guide, prepared and attentive (her license-exam score -- 127/150, has earned her the Star!) but also your friend in New York.
A word from our guide Irene
that I give to all my customers,
- Tou Lenght - from experience, I think 4/6 hours are the ideal duration for an overview tour without getting too tired.
- The Itinerary - being New York a large and chaotic metropolis to avoid wasting time up and down during a gazillion trips, I recommend choosing an itinerary that takes you discovering a few adjacent neighborhoods. This allows you to visit much more without wasting precious time.
- Attire / What to Wear - in New York you will not miss your "steps" to count on your iPhone/Android ... therefore I recommend comfortable shoes! Also, keep in mind we have many changes in temperatures both in the summer and winter months, so dress in layers. And don't forget to bring a scarf for the strong air-conditioning if you are not a fan.
- Pick Irene ... :-) :-) ... jokes aside, if you have the opportunity to discover the city with a local guide, you will certainly have a more authentic approach to the city.

OUR FAVORITE WALKING TOURS
Downtown and Lower Manhattan Area
Some of the most historic and important landmarks
are located in this "part of town". It is also the area that in recent years has seen a rise in brand new shopping centers, malls, and many new attractions.
Not to forget, this is also the area that was hit during the September 11th terror attacks
... an area that was reborn thanks to the hard work and willpower that distinguishes all New Yorkers.
From the historic Wall Street
with the NY Stock Exchange to Bowling Green with the Charging Bull
, from New York Bay with the Statue of Liberty
to the World Trade Center with the ONE Tower. A visit to NYC without visiting these areas wouldn't be the same thing.
Midtown and Uptown Area
From the natural beauty of Central Par
k with its romantic corners to the "concrete jungle" of Midtown
with the colorful giant billboards of Times Square
. From the historic Harlem
to the elegant Fifth Avenue
with its famous museums and shops ... so much to explore!
Tour outside Manhattan
Why stop in New York if you can hop on a ferry to New Jersey
or take the train to the beautiful Hudson Valley
or Coney Island or reach the famous Hamptons beaches
