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 to book your own customized private tour!

My family and I highly recommend this fantastic personalised private tour. Dan was brilliant, very accommodating, showed us the places we requested and much more. The cost was very affordable. The best way to see a grand city in an intimate way.

This was a terrific walking tour -Tour of the Civic Center, Little Italy and Soho. My teenage daughter and I loved it. The guide was very clear spoken and easy to hear. We learned so much history and neat little facts we never would have known on our own. It was so refreshing to see sites and take the subway... More

My husband and I invited my parents to join us in NYC for the weekend; they were here from California. One of our activities was a walking tour of the financial district and surrounding area. Andrew was very easy to work with in customizing our booking. Patrick was our very knowledgeable tour guide. We covered a lot of ground, asked... More

My family (husband and two twenty-something children) were visiting NYC from the UK, for the first time, for a week and whilst we'd booked ahead to see everything we'd heard about (Empire State, Ellis Island, 5th Avenue, Central Park, Statue Liberty, Broadway Show, Baseball Game, etc., etc.) we really wanted to know a bit more about the City itself. Having... More

First, I was super impressed by the level of customize-ability with the guides of Streetwise. Andrew worked with us to give us the experience of NYC that WE wanted - which was to see New York as New Yorkers do and to get some inside perspective on this historic city. Not only was his knowledge above par with what our... More

Andrew was incredibly knowledgeable about New York in a way that no tour book could be. He customized our trip to show us exactly what we wanted to see and surprised us with deep knowledge of the combination of places we visited. If you only book on tour for your trip to NYC, make it a Streetwise tour.

It was a pleasure walking around DUMBO with Patrick. He is a nice guy who gives you a lot of interesting information. It is worth!

I always try to go on at least 1 walking tour in every city I visit. This was one of the best i've done, anywhere. A unique view of the city. Dan was so knowledgeable - he knows so much about the city, could answer all our off the wall questions, and took extra time to do so. The group... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
