Visiting NYC? Here’s Why You Need to Consider a Customized Walking Tour

New York City is a wild, diverse, and exciting place. But if you are unfamiliar with the City That Never Sleeps, then you risk missing the most interesting parts during your upcoming visit. Of course, the most interesting parts of Manhattan have more to do with who you are and what you are interested in than it does with any tourist book or bus tour.

In order to get the most out of your New York City experience, it is important that you understand what you are looking for and find someone who can help you realize your perfect trip. One excellent way to make your NYC trip as rewarding as possible is with a customized walking tour of Manhattan.

Why Customized Walking Tours?

With a customized walking tour, you can choose the types of sites that are most interesting to you and receive an expert retelling of important events and local trivia. Plus, you will get to experience NYC up close and personal.

Unlike other forms of tours in New York, you will work with your tour guide in advance to shape your trip. That means you can be sure that you and your group are getting your money’s worth.

But it isn’t only the content of your tour that you can customize, but the way it is delivered. Whether you wank to take in the skyline or blend into the fast paced sidewalk traffic, you have the option of setting your pace and the scope of your walking tour. That means you can forget your fears of being outed as a tourist — just leave the fanny pack at home!

Types of Customized Walking Tours
There are as many unique tours as there are visitors to NYC. If there is something about the Big Apple that you want to see, then all you need to do is ask and your tour guide will craft the perfect tour to pique your interest.

Popular tour requests include:

  • 9/11 History Tours
  • American Revolution Tours (perfect for fans of the Hamilton musical!)
  • Cultural Institutions
  • Famous Sites and Buildings
  • Architectural History
  • Harlem Renaissance
  • Central Park
  • Gay History
  • Civil Rights
  • Television and Movie History

From the famous 30 Rockefeller Plaza (and the eponymous television show) to the Lincoln Center and Empire State Building, Manhattan has something for everyone. No other city can match its culture, energy, or history. Why else would 58.5 million tourists have visited in 2015 alone?
