Home of the American Dream

Few cities set hearts collectively racing like the Big Apple. The epitome of the American Dream, combined with the hustle and bustle of a true world city; it's not hard to see why New York is so often the backdrop of movies, music and books. It's easy to get lost in this impressive concrete jungle, so let us show you the city that never sleeps through the eyes of New York's best local tour guides.

Discover the many faces of New York with a passionate local guide

As the original FREE Tour company, we'll show you many of New York's top attractions with our Downtown walking tour, including Broadway, Wall Street, the 9/11 Memorial and Battery Park, with views to the Statue of Liberty.

After you've got the overview with the free walking tour, delve deeper with us on our other great Manhattan walking tours!

New York's best landmarks feature in this tour, not only with Times Square, but with the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, New York Public Library, Chrysler Building and much more.

We believe in supporting local communities and are committed to giving a voice to some of New York's best local freelance tour guides, who passionately share the city's history and culture with their own unique and always-entertaining style.
