Timeline Touring ventures past the routine and captures the ethnic flavor...

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.

Jeff met our college class for a two-hour+ of the Hasidic neighborhood in Brooklyn. For my students, it was a fascinating window into a completely foreign community. Jeff was knowledgeable, thoughtful, considerate, and didn’t shy away from tough questions. I would certainly recommend him to other groups.

Jeff, our modern Orthodox tour guide, gave us the direct, yet respectful, story of the Satmar people. He was funny, yet knowledgeable, and knew many off the beaten path places and people. Highly recommend him for a delightful morning excursion through Brooklyn!

To travel an hour and be transported into a whole new world can be a strange experience but Jeff did a terrific job helping us to understand the way of life. It was an unforgettable experience to learn how that community is helping others on a daily basis that need food at the various hospitals. I walked away with a... More

The tour around Borough Park met the expectations. Jeff, the guide and owner, was very knowledgeable, nice, easy-going, and he answered the many many questions we had. It took a little bit more than 2 hours. It is very recommendable if you are interested in getting to know more about the Hasidic community and Judaism in general.

You can see Orthodox Jews in many parts of New York City, but to understand a bit about their culture you definitely need an insider's help. Jeff, our guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly, and we learned about the different religious movements, the traditions, day-to-day life etc as we explored Borough Park. We were lucky to be invited in one... More

Jeff was wonderful - Got the group moving from the first moment we met him. Jeff and his wife lead our groups around the history, culture and buildings of the Lower East side in a way that only asks for more. Only downside was Jeff was so great, we could have spend days with him. Hope to schedule a follow-up... More

Malka was a great source of help. She helped our group of families with 11-12 year old kids secure a coach bus, recommended a great deli for a group lunch, and was on top of every detail to give us a great experience.
