NYC is a world leader of fashion, culture, and food, and home to incredible theater, impressive skyscrapers, and perhaps the most ethnically diverse community in one city. New Yorkers can be fast-talking, fast-moving, and brash; but 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 definitely no place quite like NYC, and you're guaranteed to have an action packed visit. 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.

Was somewhat disappointed ... thought I might be tasting a variety of beers (e.g., flights) and have them explained/described. Wasn't expecting full glassses of beer, my choice, with little or no explanation.

Nathalie is an excellent guide, she knows so much about the history of New York and is able to tell it in a very enthusiastic way. In your mind you can almost see it like a movie. She takes her time, no rush and is very sympathetic. Even if you know NYC, this tour is very interesting and learns you a lot about history and why it is the way it is nowadays. Thank you Nathalie! Regards, Mark, Ageeth, Thijs and Dirk

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.
