Great Local Guides

It’s like having a friend show you around. What better way to experience all that Manhattan has to offer than with real New Yorkers! Our licensed tour guides have years of experience helping guests learn the history and culture that is NY. We can also accommodate Spanish speaking guests if requested with advance notice.

Semi Private Tour

Never more than 8 people on a tour. Your guide is always standing right next to you and interacting with the group. He/she not only gives you great information but is available to answer all your questions, from the history to where to get the best cocktails. This is a unique intimate personal experience.

Discounts on Combos

We offer eight individual tours. You can combine them to be a 2, 4, or 6 hour tour. We’ll travel with you from one neighborhood to another. Our combo tours are a combination of historic tours as well as a food tour. All of our food tours include the price of the food and are enough for a full lunch. Nothing comes on little toothpicks, we feed you well!


Private • Corporate • School Groups

Whether you want to spice up your night with a few drinks in some of the best bars in NY or you’re a group wishing to see NY in a different way than our standard tours, these custom tours will fit all your needs.

In honor of Women's History Month, our newest blog is about the women behind NYC monuments and the fountains they inspired. 

Most of us do not know the fountains by their official names, calling them informally as "The Fountain in Central Park with the Angel," "The Fountain in Bryant Park," & "The Fountain in front of the Plaza Hotel." 

But when first-time visitors to New York City see them, they are awed into exuberant joy or meditative silence. And for long-time residents, the mere sight of them produces a calming effect, inviting one to slow down and gather what is essential within.

Long before the St. Patrick’s Day of our times was lavished with the celebratory “green” of shamrocks, leprechauns, mint-tinged cocktails, Irish independence, and a parade of iconographies capturing hues as verdant as the landscapes of an Emerald Isle . . . there was the symbolic “blue” of myth, legend and imperial history, one that continues to recognizably linger as a feature in Ireland’s state symbols.
