Owner description: Most walking tours point and stare at New York—with Streetwise New York, you live it. We explore neighborhoods, recount history and study contrasts—uncovering the true New York, that’s melted into pizza slices, hidden in subways, and carried in the ever-changing stories of its 8 million people. From the swankiest stretches of Fifth Avenue to the grimiest of graffitied alleys, we share tales passed down from our grandparents, gleaned from books, and whispered on street corners. See website for tour schedule and to book your own customized private tour!

I heard about the free walking tours at The Pod 39 Hotel where I was staying in New York. I had to walk to the Pod 51 and join the guide and the group. I had been in New York several times but this was my first time in Brooklyn and the meat packing district. thanks to Streetwise on Feb... More

We had the delight of having Dan for our private tour of New York on 10th February and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Dan was knowledgable and gave us a great insight into the different areas of New York along with some history and fun facts. Dan was easy to get along with and we had a fantastic... More

Streetwise are contracted to run 3 free tours from Pod51 hotel each week. We took the West Villiage and the Brooklyn tours with Dan. Dan clearly knew what he was talking about, he had a great knowledge of the city and was able to answer any question. After the tour, he was able to give us tips on what else... More

When staying at pod51 we did 2 of these walking tours. First we did dumbo and Brooklyn with Andrew. The tour was great, informative without too much to take in thus keeping you interested. Saw some great places we would never have known even existed let alone how to get to if we had been on our own. The next... More

We went on the Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo walking tour, having heard about it through our hotel POD 51. Our guide guide Andrew was great! He showed us all the iconic sites detailing fascinating facts and past history in this amazing borough of new york. Most importantly giving his opinion on the pizza debate- Juilanas vs. Grimaldis. Overall I definitely... More

Dan at Streetwise gave us a great tour of New York City! The tour took us through several cool areas of the city that we wouldn't have found on our own. Dan added a lot of colour and interest to the tour: he pointed out famous buildings from TV and movies, gave us background on buildings of historical or cultural... More

Went with Streetwise as we saw good reviews in Tripadvisor. Also, we didn't want to go to standard stuff which we can probably go on our own. Hence, we decided to go on a walking tour. We've made a booking months in advance. Dan was very prompt in his response and patiently answered all our queries. It was raining on... More

We heard about the walking tour through the Pod 51 hotel. We decided to take the Brooklyn heights tour on our first day in NY. The tour was very informative but not over the top and our guide knew everything you needed to know about the city, all the best spots for taking photos, the best place to get pizza... More

The tour I went on through the Meatpacking district was amazing. Dan was such a great tour guide. He knew so much about the area and it was great to see so many places that I didn't even think of seeing on my visit. I will difinately do another tour with streetwise if I come back to New York.

We booked Streetwise after reading the tripadvisor reviews and we are so glad we did as Dan was a great guide. The e-mail response to our first enquiry was prompt and helpful and communication was excellent throughout. We did the full day tour (on New Years Eve) and did so much in one day that we were buzzing with information... More
