Why take a New York walking tour?
Lower Manhattan tour has more than 400 years of history.

Today it is the oldest and coolest New York neighborhood.
Much of the neighborhood is closed to cars and a walking tour is the best way to explore the rich history and architecture of Downtown New York.
How does it work?
Our walking tours are themed.
We focus our walking tours on a slice of history.
For example, Wall Street, Alexander Hamilton, Dutch New Amsterdam, 911 Memorial, the Jewish history and heritage, Architecture and what your interest is.
We go point-to-point and show you the good stuff!
We start from the “bottom” (Bowling Green) and work your way up to the 911 Memorial/World Trade Center.
We start at the subway stop and go in a big circle to end in another place, such as a restaurant, the Brooklyn Bridge or Statue of Liberty.
