Learn the history of New York from an expert guide
Visit Ground Zero and some of the most significant sites in New York's fascinating story
Discover how much of New York is landfill
Did you know that it was the first capital of the United States? You might think that is as good a place as any to start, but it is not so. The best place to begin a New York walking tour is with the Dutch West India Company.
That’s correct. The first New Yorkers were Dutch, and Wall Street was a real wall. If you already know that, you will still want to take this tour to find out how much of downtown New York is landfill, and how much is really original New York.
On the tour you will experience Ground Zero after 9/11, visit the oldest neighborhood in Manhattan at the Stone Street historic district, and take a peek inside Trinity Church. And that is just for starters.
There is so much New York history on this fascinating walking tour that every step will open up a new page in the history book. You might even want to do it twice!

“Very satisfied customers!”
Reviewed by Tim from New York, United States on June 17th, 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!
“Die Tour war sehr informativ und unterhaltsam.”
