Let our guide put you at ease during this 2 to 2.5 hour private guided walking tour, showing you around the best parts of the city. Your guide will help navigate the streets and landmarks that are part of the postcard-perfect New York that every visitor is seeking.


During the 19th and 20th-centuries, Manhattan grew up, quite literally. Explore the lesser-known Marble Collegiate Church and then visit famed landmarks like the New York Public Library and the Morgan Library. Stroll through Madison Square Park and learn about the odd design of the Flatiron Building. Discuss the innovations that allowed the city to reach new heights during the skyscraper boom of the early 1900s. Learn about the Met Life Tower and the New York Life Building among other famous towers. Of course, you’ll hear all about the world-famous Empire State Building, one of the last great 20th century giants. Then have your camera ready to catch the commuters within the main terminal of Grand Central Station where you’ll learn about the landmark laws that preserve these beautiful historic buildings for future generations.

Highlights generally include (but are not limited to):

• Flatiron Building
• MetLife Tower
• Appellate Courthouse
• Morgan Library

"A wonderful tour with Katherine"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed January 26, 2020
The Metropolitan Museum has so much to offer. Millions of art pieces dating back 20,000 years, some fully in tact. And the commentary from our guide Katherine couldn't have been better. Well versed in the history of the museum and its artifacts, Katherine gave us exactly what we had hoped for. Armed with an iPad and her research, she answered all of our questions and created a most enjoyable tour.
