In-person tours begin at $200 per group. Contact us for details.

Stops included in each virtual tour are subject to change.

What is a "virtual tour"?
During the pandemic, we've been taking our on-the-street knowledge of New York, combining it with our vast collection of contemporary and archival images, and creating unique Zoom presentations that are the next best thing to touring the city in person. (And, honestly, they're sometimes even better--the magic of technology allows us to traverse great distances in the blink of an eye.)

Is anyone actually walking around the city?

No: you enjoy the tour from the comfort and safety of your own home, and we lead the presentation from ours. We interact with the audience during and after every tour, but no one is actually walking the traditional tour route.

How large a group do I need to book my own tour?

We welcome groups of any size. Tours start at $150 for moderate-sized family/friends groups. We have special rates for school groups and corporate events. Please use the "Contact Us" form at the bottom of this page to be in touch. 

Do you still offer public tours?

We are offering public presentations a few times a month. See our "Public Presentations" page for all the details and the upcoming schedule.

What if I can't join a public presentation at the time it's happening? Are there recordings?

Yes! Each time we lead a public tour via Zoom, we make a recording available for at least two weeks afterward. However, you MUST register and pay for the talk in advance to have access to that recording.

Are you licensed New York City tour guides?

Yes, both James and Michelle are licensed to give walking tours by the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs. In fact, many people who take the test to become tour guides use our books to study for the exam!
