ABOUT New York

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

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.

As the original FREE Tour company, we’ll show you many of New York’s top attractions with our Downtown Manhattan 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 guided tours! The Midtown Tour will take you to some of New York’s best landmarks, such us Times Square, the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center and Fifth Avenue.

You can also visit some of New York’s most famous neighborhoods on the Chinatown, Little Italy & Brooklyn Bridge Tour.

Need an escape to nature? Our Central Park walking tour is the ultimate Central Park guide, taking you to must-see famous sites like the John Lennon tribute Strawberry Fields, as well as some hidden gems you won’t find yourself.
