This private, customized walking tour of New York City begins in any one of five popular locations. Choose one or choose them all on a 2-hour jaunt around the Big Apple with a professional tour guide and photographer.

The bright lights of Times Square and Broadway serve as the heart and soul of New York City. These locations provide an unmistakable backdrop for any New York City adventure.

Spacious Central Park is a stunning setting for pictures. No matter what time of the year it is, the possibilities here are endless. It would be very easy to spend two or three hours here.

What about Midtown Manhattan? It includes some of New York City’s most famous landmarks, like Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral, Grand Central Station and Radio City Music Hall. A photo outside any of these buildings is a photo to remember.

Lower Manhattan features New York's more eclectic neighborhoods. SoHo includes the Cast Iron Historic District, which consists of 26 blocks and approximately 500 buildings, many incorporating cast-iron architectural elements. There are also the winding streets of Greenwich Village, which includes historic Washington Square Park. Both neighborhoods provide great photo opportunities.

And finally, the Brooklyn Bridge offers a stunning panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline. Get some pictures on the bridge with the city in the background. Perfect.

Also, while roaming the city, find out from the guide where the best places are for dining, shopping and entertainment.

No later than 48 hours after the tour, the photographer will deliver at least 75 color photos via zip-file and photo gallery.

  • Frequently Asked Questions:
  • How will I get around the city?
  • Most of the tour will require a good deal of walking, however, because the tours are exclusive to your group, you can and will go at a pace that you are comfortable with. There may be occasions when you will need to go from one part of NYC to another (Times Square to the Brooklyn Bridge). The most efficient way to travel is by subway ($2.75 per person, per ride). If you prefer a cab this can be arranged (no more than 4 people to a cab). The cost will be at the expense of the group, usually about $10 - $15 from most points within Manhattan. If you do take a subway ride, this will be documented as part of the New York City experience.

Best Experience in New York City
, May 2020
My daughter and I went to NY City after the New Year and this Private Walking Tour is the absolute best. The photographer was on time to the meeting place in Times Square. The tour was just me and my daughter. Marc took us to places that we would not have ventured to go to ourselves. The pace is quick but worth it. We rode the subway and our photographer even gave us a quick class on how to navigate the subway, which was helpful in our last two days in NYC. I would highly recommend booking early in your trip so that you can scope out places to spend more time at or even just to get the pictures we would not have gotten otherwise.
