NYC is a world leader of fashion and food, and home to spectacular theater, the highest concentration of skyscrapers, and perhaps the most ethnically diverse community in one city. New Yorkers can be pushy, brash, and outspoken; they are also welcoming, fun loving, and proud to share their city.

It’s a world centre of commerce and international trade, and has influenced American cultural movements in music, literature, fashion and theater. There is certainly no place quite like NYC, and it certainly won’t be less than expected. Regardless of what you're interested in, there are always incredible things to do in New York, and even if you only have a mere 24 hours in NYC, we've got you covered.



Taking a tour in New York City guided by New Yorkers is the ideal way to experience the real life New York City. We've got some great New York City walking tours to show off this fabulous city from a local perspective.

As New Yorkers, we were thrilled with our guide David's knowledge of some nooks and crannies we would not have explored on our own. The tastes were quite a find and we plan to find them again soon. We'll keep our eyes peeled for other interesting Urban Adventures.

I have already told everyone we talked to that this is a must for their next trip to NYC. David was fantastic. Our only regret was that we didn't do the tour earlier during our visit so we could go back and explore more in the Lower East side. David was a fantastic guide and having a small group made it so personable.

Thanks to Dave we had a wonderful time. He provided an insight to several neighborhoods we wouldn't even have been to without him. As a travel agent from Germany I will highly recommend this tour to my customers - and that's a promise!

I can't imagine anyone being more knowledgeable, informed, engaging and personable than Jared, particularly about the neighborhood he knows personally from his own family history. Our Urban Adventure tour exceeded whatever expectations we might have had and we enjoyed the experience very much.
