ABOUT THE New York Downtown Private Tour

This 2-hour walking tour walks you through the city's evolution, telling the stories which allow locals to make the claim that 'this is the greatest city on earth'.

New York has played a central role in the history of the United States and the New World, from the earliest explorations through the Dutch and English colonial eras, to the Revolutionary War through the September 11th attacks. We believe that New York is one of the greatest cities in the world, but every local here is sure of it! New York City's energy and pace help define modern American life like nowhere else. Come with us and see for yourself!

We can adapt the tour for you, even when booking online! You will be asked some questions during the checkout process to help us better tailor the tour to the needs of your group.

Our recommendation: Highly recommended to join during your first day in the city! Our unique guiding style of combining history with pure showmanship has made us one of the most popular walking tour companies in all of Europe!
