Private Tours of New York

With a private tour, you're the boss!

In addition to offering our daily tours, SANDEMANs New York also offers two excellent services. Firstly, we've now gotten really good at developing unique tours that suit the needs of an individual group perfectly. Secondly we're really proud of the method of educational entertainment we can offer to school groups, allowing both the teachers and the students to become locals in a fun and engaging way.

Whether you represent a school group looking for “the most charismatic and entertaining guides in the business” (Cosmopolitan Magazine UK) or need to book a guide who offers “more than the usual” (BBC Television) for a business client or simply need a genuinely informative trip around the city, SANDEMANs has the guides you're looking for.

The advantage of doing a private tour is simply that, you have your own personal tour guide catering specifically for your area of interest. You can decide where the tour starts from, where it should finish and how long it lasts.

With over 100 tours offered daily and 5 million guests served since 2004, we're one of the biggest walking tour companies in the world.

We guarantee a memorable tour that is out of the ordinary: all at a reasonable price. Our tours are conceived to show you the best of New York by foot, but like we say, you're in charge and we can arrange private cars, buses, boats and helicopters and almost all of our tours can be done on bike!
