We are thrilled to be part of The New York Times Travel Show and if you are an attendee of the show, please take advantage of our 2-for-1 offer on all our tours from now until February 3rd.
Our guides will lead you off the beaten path to explore the nooks and crannies of NYC’s most interesting neighborhoods, including DUMBO, Gowanus, Williamsburg, Bushwick, Victorian Flatbush, and Park Slope in Brooklyn; Washington Heights, Hell’s Kitchen, the East Village, and the early morning flower district in Manhattan; and Flushing in Queens.
Check out a sneak peak of some of our tours:
Citibike DUMBO begins in Manhattan at a CitiBike kiosk near the Manhattan Bridge. We ride very slowly (this is not extreme sports) as the bike gives us an opportunity to get to DUMBO and enjoy some beautiful vistas and hear some stories along the way. This also gives you a chance to get used to our excellent CitiBike program so you can enjoy some of the city’s great bike paths on future trips to New York.
Go to Hell! See Hell’s Kitchen, New York’s most misunderstood neighborhood with our food enthusiast and local expert Ziggy. Learn about the neighborhood’s complicated and violent history, where Irish gangs once ruled the streets. You’ll get to explore Hell’s Kitchen’s many secrets including gardens, churches, and many great eateries outside the tourist path.
Gowanus? Yes, Go On Us! From its humble beginnings as a meandering creek to a lush salt marsh dotted with gristmills, the Gowanus Canal and its surrounding neighborhood, has experienced a renaissance over the past several years. A thriving community of long-time residents (as well as newcomers who are drawn to the area’s gritty, industrial appeal) reside amongst the more than 300 artists who rent studio & gallery space in re-purposed factory buildings.
And these video sneak-peeks are just a sampling of a fantastic selection of expeditions such as:
