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!

Well organized, relaxed and with a god sense of humor. Andrew was the perfect guide, and took very good care of us. He knows about the history, the graffiti and street art and the well ket secrets of the neighborhood.

My friend and I recently took a private Queens tour with Andrew. We were so pleased with his desire to show us the type areas we were most interested in seeing, the number of stops we needed, at the pace most comfortable for us. He helped us get to our starting place, and then spent the time making sure we... More

Dan gave a very informative relaxing tour of the meatpacking district. Highly recommended! He was more than happy to help by answering any questions as we went along and made sure everybody in the group knew how to their next destination after the tour. He was more than happy to suggest places to eat.

Our entire experience with Streetwise was fantastic. After I submitted an inquiry on their website, Andrew got back to me very quickly. Even before the tour, he did a great job in helping us to narrow down what we wanted to see based on our interests. The tour itself with was awesome. Seeing Chinatown, Tribeca and Soho with Andrew was... More

I have been going to NY for many years and this tour taught me many things about history, habits etc.. The guide (Dan) is knowledgeable, respectful, adaptable and interesting for all ages (teenagers and adults). You should not hesitate to book them. I would redo it again and would highly recommend it,

My sister and I were strapped for time in NYC and wanted to see as much as we could. Through our hotel, Pod 39, we went on two of the streetwise walking tours. The first with Dan through Brooklyn and the second with Andrew in the Meat Packing District and Greenwhich Village. We had a great time on both tours... More

My wife and I recently spent 3 days in New York City following a few days in Washington DC. Having previously visited and seen all the key points of interest in NYC, and having had our fill of monuments and museums in DC, we wanted to do something with a different vibe. Prior to our arrival, I googled “NYC off... More

My friend and I decided at the last minute to hop on the train from New Jersey to visit NYC while he was in town. We had sent emails to a lot of different tour companies, but Andrew from Streetwise New York was the only one to respond. He set us up with Sonya within an hour from my initial... More

Myself and 5 of my friends had the pleasure of joining Dan for a 4.5hr tour of Manhattan. What a gentleman he is! He gave us a great start to our 6 days in NYC and took us to some really interesting places. 95% of which we would have never discovered without him. A great way to get your bearings... More
