Updated: October 12, 2021

Not sure what tour to take?  Check out the quick summary of our New York Tours below the calendar.   If you don't see a tour on our schedule that fits yours, let us know! We offer private tours as well!

We recommend that you:

  • First, check out our calendar below.  This calendar will show you the tours that we have on offer during your desired time period.
  • Be sure to check out our entire selection of tours underneath the calendar organized by location.
  • Consider one or more of our self-guided tours.

Due to city regulations and the overall enjoyment of guests, we aim to keep our groups relatively small.   Our tours are very popular and we often are forced to turn away many interested guests.  We have found that groups have a higher than average no show rate.  In order to be fair to everyone, we do have requirements for groups who wish to join our public tours. Groups should refer to our group booking page.
