Full description

Rediscover the charm of Manhattan on a private tour with a savvy local host. Replicate the experience of spending time in a city with a friend who lives there, as we all know the best travel moments come from going beneath the surface of a destination and discovering it from a local's perspective.

Travel through the best parts of Central Park, where New Yorkers go jogging and cycling. Go for a stroll downtown, stopping along the way at the best cafes loved by real New Yorkers. 

Or allow your local host to lead you towards the charming, old-style covered market in Greenwich Village, stopping to see the High Line. There are so many possibilities for your customized itinerary.

After booking, you will be contacted about your preferences and interests. A like-minded New Yorker who knows the city intimately and shares your interests will be assigned to you as your local host. 

Based on the things that you would like to see and do, a personalized and bespoke itinerary will be built just for you. During the tour, if you feel like changing direction, or if your local host believes that you'd enjoy a different sight or experience, they will suggest it to you.

You will be able to arrange a meeting point and time with your host in the most convenient place for you. Let your private local host show you the New York you will love.

    Anette picked us up from the hotel as announced via WhatsApp. Since we had already looked at some of the sights she wanted to show on the tour the day before, she spontaneously planned an alternative tour. We took the subway downtown. Anette not only told us something about the city, its development and the people, but also reported something about her life.

    It was an unforgettable experience. We were picked up directly from our hotel. Our guide Anette was great and looked after us very well throughout the trip. Whether supporting program or culture, it was an entertaining program. We were very well entertained, would book it again exactly like this, and we would like to thank our guide Anette for this great day

    We were traveling with Ray and not only is he a great personality, but he also brought us very close to New York. It was a lot of fun. After the tour, it was much easier for us to understand the New Yorkers and to immerse ourselves in the mentality. Thanks to Ray, we were also able to understand the subway better. We were and are very enthusiastic and gladly recommend it to others.
