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.

I highly recommend the excellent walking tour that my nine year old daughter and I did with Andrew through the Meatpacking District, Chelsea Market, the High line and Greenwich Village. Andrew is incredibly knowledgeable about the areas that we visited as well as New York generally. It was great to have the insights of someone who lives in the city... More

Because our hotel is part of the Triumph Hotel Group, we were able to attend a walking tour of Hell’s Kitchen for free! As this was our first time in New York, we found that this tour was extremely helpful in uncovering foodie heaven! Our tour guide Patrick was very friendly and full of knowledge. I loved how he would... More

I booked this trip before I went and am glad I did. Patrick was excellent, knowledgeable and good fun. Patrick took us up 7th Avenue pointing out places of interest before heading down to Chelsea and the Village taking in the High Line. Every step of the way, Patrick was able to educate us on the architecture and history of... More

What a wonderful time I had on the Streetwise New York Tours with Andrew through NYC ! It's definitly not the same to walk with a born and raised New-Yorker to visit the city and learn so many little stories about architecture, music, food and so on... émoticône wink I will come back and discover all I missed running out...

I was lucky enough to be able to take a couple of Streetwise's fantastic tours for free as I was staying at Pod 51. These are a great way of discovering new area's of NYC as, as a returning visitor to the city, I had already seen many of the 'usual' sights. I took the DUMBO / Brooklyn Heights tour... More

Super delayed in my reviewing since I did the tours in June 2014, but I guess it's a testament to Streetwise Tours that I still think about how good they are!! I took two walking tours with them Dumbo/Brooklyn Heights and Greenwich Village. The tours were entertaining and fascinating and both the guides I had (Andy and Patrick) were extremely... 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
