Additional Description


The idea behind the Contrasts Tour is to discover and live the different "corners" and "faces" that New York can offer us from its gigantic multi-million dollars skyscrapers to historic tenement buildings, from the luxury boutiques of 5th Avenue to the corner Delis and Bodegas (aka a local supermarket).
New York City is probably the capital of the world when it comes to Melting Pot, and you can live it first-hand thanks to this tour.

The Difference between Regular and Private Tour?

We do offer the regular group tour of The Contrasts ($73 per person) however with this private tour, you will be in full control. This is why we recommend it to families and groups of friends, or to mid-to-large groups; it will become way more cost-effective for one, plus you will have the option to be picked up and dropped off at a place of your choice.

You can also customize your unique Itinerary -- would you rather focus on Flushing Queens or Long Island City, maybe less time in The Bronx and add something in Brooklyn? Or vice-versa? Well, anything is possible thanks to this private tour; we can now fully customize the Itinerary to the client's needs and requests.

You also have the option to extend the Tour to include the Iconic Coney Island, the popular New York City Beach famous for its Luna Park with one of the oldest wooden roller coaster still active today, the iconic Nathan's Hot Dog, and prominent Graffiti and Murals Arts by renowned local and international artists.

After you place your reservation (online on our site or by phone), one of our expert Tour Guides will be in touch with you to tailor the Excursion Itinerary to your requests. She / He will be there the day of the Tour and all together, you can go explore the city beyond Manhattan.

All of our Tour Guides are professional guides certified by the city of New York and in possession of the Sightseeing License. You can rest assured they will take great care of you and your party!

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!

I’m the biggest fan of Fall activities, but haven’t had a chance to do anything beyond Apple Picking in NJ. I decided to take a last minute 2 day trip with a friend in Hudson Valley, but didn’t know where to start [...] Thankfully I was able to use New York Welcome to do the hard work for us [...]

The SATC walking tour is fabulous! Our tour guide was amazing. Friendly, helpful, accommodating and so knowledgeable about the city. It was essentially 2 tours in 1. SATC and visits to historical places in the city. I give this tour 5 stars and definitely recommend. Grab your walking shoes and schedule one today!
