Owner description: Timeline Touring ventures past the routine and captures the ethnic flavor of NYC with our tours of Jewish New York. Created by a born and bred New Yorker, Timeline Touring explores the fascinating history of the Jewish presence in the Big Apple. Our neighborhood walking tours become eye opening experiences as little known tidbits of information are shared with tour participants and the story of generations of Jewish immigrants and their rich history and culture come to life. Our regularly scheduled walking tours include weekly tours of the Lower East Side and Borough Park, Brooklyn. We also offer private group tours to these, and other neighborhoods of Jewish interest such as Harlem, Wall Street, Ellis Island and more. Our tours are perfect for JCC groups, Temple groups, convention groups, family celebrations and reunions or for those interested in a trip down memory lane back to the old neighborhood.

We have used Jeff for many years, I have personally been on 3 trips with him and he is smart, personable and knowledgeable. He and Malka are very accommodating and helpful in helping choose the right tour and even help discuss other aspects of our trip. We will continue using them for years to come.

Rebecca- It is gratifying to hear that you learned so much from Jeff on your tour of Borough Park. Our goal is to enlighten and inform our tour participants on the Jewish Hasidic culture in this neighborhood and we are glad that was accomplished! Thanks for your warm and most positive review.

Once again, Jeff Altman had my 12 9th graders enthralled. He was punctual, compelling, knowledgable -- and his enthusiasm for the Lower East Side and all its history was infectious. This year he outdid himself because it was unpredictably cold -- and Jeff had us in and out of spaces and places to accommodate the weather and all of us.... More

Timeline Tours (really Malka & Jeff Altman) did a phenomenal job of planning and executing our tour of Flatbush and Sheepshead Bay. For months Malka, Jeff and I discussed various places to visit for my Dad's 80th birthday. My entire family was coming from as far away as Israel. 15 of us had to be ferried around Brooklyn, kept interested... More

We have used Jeff and Malka for several years. We travel with about a dozen 10th graders from a reform synagogue. They engage the students in a meaningful way. Answer patiently all their many questions. The itinerary and explanation of the Hasidic way of life is terrific.

We had the pleasure of spending the day on a walking tour of the Lower East Side with Jeffrey Altman. He was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, and patient. We were a group of kids and adults and he kept the entire group engaged. We learned so much (and ate so much). It was an incredible day and we will definitely use... More
