Learn the history of New York City on a 2-hour guided walking tour of Downtown Manhattan, and explore the oldest neighborhood on Manhattan Island. See landmark monuments, such as Ground Zero and Wall Street, and peek inside peaceful Trinity Church.


Discover some of the most historic neighborhoods of New York, a city so good they named it twice! The 2-hour walking tour takes in the origins of the city, from the days of the Dutch West India Company to the buzz of modern finance on today’s Wall Street.

As you walk, your guide will tell you how the first New Yorkers came from Holland, and how Wall Street really was once a wall. Even if you already know this stuff, you will want to take the tour to find out how much of Downtown New York is actually landfill, and how much forms the original New York.

Visit the site of Ground Zero, where the World Trade Center stood until the terrorist attacks of 9/11, and see the new One World Trade Center building, which officially topped out in August 2012. Explore the Neo-Dutch colonial buildings of the Stone Street Historic District at the heart of Manhattan’s Financial District, and take a peek inside Trinity Church.

  • Rating: 5 “Very satisfied customers!”

    Reviewed by Tim – New York, United States on June 17, 2013 I booked this walking tour of Manhattan for my parents when they came to visit. They came back absolutely delighted. Apparently they were alone on the tour but the tour happened anyway and they were given a royal treatment from their guide Gary. My mother has swooned so much about Gary now, I'm almost tempted to take the tour simply to meet such a wonderful man!

  • Rating: 5 “Die Tour war sehr informativ und unterhaltsam.”
