What to expect
Meet up with your guide at the United Nations in the afternoon, beginning the two-hour tour with a stroll down 42nd Street. Check out the apartment of the Green Goblin, and take a trip past the Daily News Building, used as a filming location in the original ‘Superman’ film starring Christopher Reeve. You’ll then get a ‘behind-the-scenes’ look at a bar known as a famous hangout for New York’s comic artists. Also along 42nd Street are the Chrysler Building and Grand Central Terminal (with ‘Stark Tower’ looming nearby). Continue along Park Avenue, stopping to explore the historic heart of ‘Publishers’ Row,’ birthplace of some of the world’s most famous comics. You’ll see the location of the offices of Will Eisner and Bob Kane, and then see filming locations used in TV shows like ‘Gotham’ and ‘Daredevil.’ Throughout the trip, you’ll hear plenty of fascinating stories and insights into comic book history from your guide, including details about how Kryptonite was created, where Batman was saved from cancellation, and the location of keepsake left behind for NYC by The Avengers.

Terrific stroll through comic history
Aug 2021
Really terrific tour that went DEEP into the history of the actual comics using the pop culture touchstones such as movie locations as jumping off points. I consider myself pretty learned in this stuff and I learned a LOT in 90+ minutes. Great area to walk as well starting at the U.N. heading past the News Building to Grand Central, then 5th avenue and ending at the comic shop. Highly recommend it.

Superhero Tour
Aug 2021 • Family
Julian was very knowledgeable and fun. My teenaged son had many questions and Julian had the answers to all.
The two hour walking tour went fast. There were enough stops throughout the tour that made it possible to rest, use the restroom, etc. I highly recommend this tour, even if you aren’t into superheroes and comic books. It’s a lesson in NYC landmarks and their history as well!!

It was a great tour, Julian shared with us valuable information for all of us, even the ones that are not that familiar with the superheroes history. He was able to share not only information also some pictures that help you to recognize all the events.

Fun walking tour- Julian was awesome!
Jun 2021 • Family
Julian was our tour guide and was so fun! It is apparent he is passionate about comics and superheroes and NYC! We took our two kids with us- 11 & 14- and they loved it. It was really really hot today and Julian made sure we were in the shade as much as possible. Thanks for showing us some cool Marvel/DC spots around midtown!
