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 stayed at Pod Hotel 51, I was travelling by myself and notice the free provided tours by the our hotel. I went on the Brooklyn Heights/Dumbo and Highline walking tours. Both were great. Andrew and Patrick the tour guides were very friendly, helpfull and knowledgeable. I defiantly recommend these tours to everyone.

We found Streetwise on Trip Advisor and booking our 4 hour private tour was the best decision! Dan and I emailed back and forth a bit even before the trip as he gave us recommendations for restaurants, etc as part of the planning process. Dan met us in the lobby of our hotel to start the day. During our tour... More

We had booked a 3 hour private tour with Andrew with the "Immigrant New York" theme. It was a very good insight with a deep local perspective. He managed to attract the attention of whole group adults & kids along with opportunites to try street flavors.

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

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!
