Description: 8 people or less Guaranteed! Our tours are like having a friend in NYC...
8 people or less Guaranteed! Our tours are like having a friend in NYC showing you around their neighborhood. You call, we listen, and then suggest the perfect day for you in the most interesting neighborhoods: Greenwich Village, Chinatown, Times Square and many more, sampling the best foods the City has to offer. This is nothing like a bus tour; it's a personal experience where the history is part of the tour, but the behind-the-scenes stories are part of us.

I went on a tour tours a couple of years ago when I was in New York and had no hesitation about doing one again. And, in fact, if possible, they've gotten somehow better! So much so that I ended up going on 3! They're so immersive and the guides are incredibly knowledgable and passionate. As for for the food...well...skip... More

If you are visiting New York and you DON'T go on a tour with Manhattan Walking Tour, you're cheating yourself. Seriously. I've gone on many tours in many cities around the world and I've never been on a better one. In fact, our first tour with Alex was so awesome, my boyfriend and I booked a second one for the... More

Alex was very knowledgeable about NYC and fun to spend an afternoon with. We did a combo of the Greenwich Village Food Tour and the Downtown Walking tour. The food was amazing!

It was amazing!! We ended up getting a private tour with Alex and it was fantastic! Saw and learned a whole lot of stuff that we wouldn't have if we had walked The Highline and around the Village ourselves. Alex took us to have fantastic food(we couldn't eat it all there was so much!) and it was great local places!... More

We did the Highline and Greenwich Village tours and enjoyed every bit. Alex, our tour guide, was very informative and gave many interesting facts. We learned a lot. Come with an empty stomach. This tour has large portions of food. We sampled 6 different places that included pizza, chocolate, chocolate fountain soda, rice ball, sandwich, and cannoli. Every sample was... More

We did the Highline and Greenwich village tours. Very informative, funny and good tasting tours! We got to know tons of stuff in a fun and easygoing way that we would never have gotten to know if we didn't do the tours. Highly recommended!

We very much enjoyed all the food and fun of Manhattan Food Tours. Along with the variety of multicultural cuisine we got to sample in Hell's Kitchen, our guide, Nancy Paris, had a wealth of information about the surrounding area. She had so much knowledge to offer us as well as a pleasant and cheerful conversational quality. She shared plenty... More

Oh my gosh this was the best tour ever! We really got the feel of the neighborhood! We did the add on drink experience. The best ever! Got to meet Gary's wifey. Sharing stories of New York life and South Dakota life was great fun!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
