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.

We booked this tour at the last minute based on TripAdvisor reviews. Great communication from the beginning with Andrew and Dan (returning emails on a Sunday for a Monday tour pretty impressive!). Our kids (13, 12) had not been to NYC before and we wanted an early introduction to this amazing town by someone that knew the lay of the... More

I booked a personalised tour for my husband, Son (7yrs) and I for the first day we got to NY to help us get our bearings. I messed up the booking though and put the wrong date so had to change it to our 6th day in NY which they happily did. Because of this we had already gone to... More

Andrew did an amzing job of taking through Greenwich village and the Meatpacking District. Our tour was booked through our hotel, Pod 51, and I hope they continue to do this! It was amazing to see the New York side of NYC through the eyes of an actual New York resident! I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to... More

While staying at the Pod Hotel 51, my friend and I went on the Brooklyn Heights/Dumbo and Highline walking tours. Both were incredible awesome. Andrew and Patrick the tour guides were extremely knowledgeable about the specifics on the tour as well as New York in general. Fully recommend this there tours to anyone and everyone!

Caitlan, Thanks for the review. We're glad that you enjoyed both your tours with us. To give credit where credit is due,your hotel The Pod Hotel paid for your tour in full. These exclusive tours are offered by the hotel as a perk for the hotel guests. Thanks again! Dan and Andrew More

What a fantastic tour. Patrick our guide was easy going, accommodating and had an amazing knowledge of New York. He kept our two boys interested with fun and cool sights and facts and we all enjoyed experiencing NY this way. Would highly recommend Streetwise tours to anyone wanting to see New York more in depth.

Took two tours through our hotel Pod 51. Both were one of the highlights of the trip. Great, informative, entertaining and helpful guides that went above and beyond helping us get a feel for the city, unique neighbourhoods, navigating the subway system and tips and directions after the tours were finished. Highly recommend!

Me and my sister have joined a group tour to Brooklyn starting at Pod 51st Hotel. It was a very nice and fun way to get to know NY. Dan, the tour guide, shared his knowledge with the group and was friendly and helpful all the time. We really recommend Streetwise tour!

I can't get over what a great experience this was! Sonya was an amazing tour guide -- having her show me around Manhattan was like having a good friend show you around her hometown. She's got an amazing knowledge of the city and is charming and personable and ... well, we hit it off right away and had a great... More

My husband and I have been to NYC a few times - and just wondered on our own. Booked with Streetwise after seeing review on Trip. It was a great decision. Sonya met us at our hotel (we were late due to technical difficulties with the door). She was patient and understanding and extended the tour to make up the... More

After the great experience of Manhattan with Andrew two years ago, we went on a private Brooklyn tour with Dan on our next NYC visit. We had a great morning and early afternoon adventure on a perfect day. At this point I could I could play Dan and Andrew off each other and comment on who was better, but I'll... More
