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!

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

After visiting New York on many occasions we decided it was time to venture off the island and learn more about one of the other boroughs. The Queens tour was extremely interesting and Dan was a fantastic guide. We started in Jackson Heights and Elmhurst then travelled via subway to Astoria. We walked and learned about history and cultural influences... More

From the very first email enquiry I made, I would have to say the responsiveness and the focus on tailoring what we would like to experience in NY was evident. We quickly worked out the areas we wanted to see (Chelsea Mkt-Greenich Village-Little Italy-Chinatown-WTC) and sorted out a meeting place. We were then in Dan's expert hands, this guy is... More

We had a great tour with Patrick. He was incredibly knowledge about all aspects of New York life from architecture to history to the second Civil Rights movement. We enjoyed our Broadway show but hands down we enjoyed our time with Patrick even more! I don't exactly recall how I found Streetwise, but I am very happy my Google search... More

I went on two tours (to Brooklyn and the Meatpacking District) via the Pod 51 hotel. Our guide Dan really knew his stuff and was able to field every question that the group threw at him. There was a good balance between 'active tourguiding' and responding to the interests of the group.

We stayed in NYC for 5 days. Our hotel, Pod 51, has free NYC walking tours for their guests. The first excursion we went on with Streetwise was to Brooklyn Heights, with Dan. We learned cool information about the DUMBO neighborhood and saw beautiful parts of coastal NYC. We wrapped it up with a pizza lunch in Brooklyn suggested by... More
