THERE'S NO BETTER WAY TO EXPLORE NEW YORK THAN ON A WALKING TOUR.

With our New York City tours, you can enjoy the benefits of having your own, private guide for the same price that other charge you to be part of a large, public tour.


All tours are led by James or Michelle Nevius, authors of the acclaimed New York City history book Inside the Apple: A Streetwise History of New York City and Footprints in New York: Tracing the Lives of Four Centuries of New Yorkers, which is due out this spring from Lyons Press. (CLICK HERE for more information on our books.)


Footprints in New York has some of the sharpest, most informative meditations on the history of the city that I have encountered in a long time. If these essays are any indication, a walking tour with James and Michelle Nevius must be a real treat.” -- Edwin G. Burrows, coauthor of Gotham and author of Forgotten Patriots.
