An A++ tour, even in a pandemic! 😃
What a fantastic tour with a GREAT guide! Gabby was wonderful and even during a pandemic with masks and distancing our group was able to have a great time and learn a lot. We thought our feet would be tired, but it was just the right amount of stopping to learn about the area and walking through the beautiful neighborhoods. We learned SO much and were super impressed with Gabby's knowledge and excitement for the history of this great city!! Thanks for an A++ tour! I would absolutely recommend this to those locals and out of towners that what to learn more about these unique neighborhoods as well as get great advice on where to eat, shop, and things to see! 😍

Great start to NYC
This is an awesome 2 hour walking tour of this fascinating area in NYC. The knowledge of our guide Marella was of high standard and the pace of the tour was perfect. Not too fast but also not too slow. Really enjoyed this tour on our first day in NYC — gave us a very good introduction.

FAQs

How much walking is there?

There are 2-3 kilometers of moderately paced walking. If mobility is an issue, you can also book a private tour.

Can I do the High Line and Chelsea Walking Tour at 9:30 a.m. before this tour?

You will have sufficient time to get from one tour to the next. At 11:30 a.m., the High Line tour comes to an end. Take the C or E subway two stops to Spring Street, where the SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown Walking Tour starts. Please feel free to seek extra assistance from your guide.

Is there food or shopping during the tour?

During the trip, there may be short stops to buy various ethnic delicacies. We don’t have time to sit down and have a meal since we have so much to accomplish! Although there is no time set up for shopping, your guide may lead you to any retail places of interest once the tour has concluded, and you will have plenty of opportunities to window shop as you wander through the various districts.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Prepare to arrive 15 minutes early. The trip begins immediately, and if you come late, you may not be able to catch up.

What if it rains?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
