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 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

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.
