Walking Tours in New York City

30 October 2018

A quick search online will reveal the vast selection of tours available to the New York City tourist which include boats, bikes and walking and even flying, if your budget will stretch to a skyline view. Ultimately though, what each tour will provide is background information as to what is in front of your vision, especially the walking tours with a knowledgeable New Yorker as a guide. The benefit to a walking tour is that you are more than likely to stay in one area. For example, there are walking tours of Central Park, but these tend to stretch over a longer distance, whereas a tour of Lower Manhattan will concentrate on the financial district of Wall Street as well as the 9/11 Memorial Museum.

Prices vary between different types of tours; walking tours can start from £20 and go up as far as £50, depending on the area and how long the tour lasts. Bike and boat tours are far more expensive as are the helicopter rides over Manhattan.

A good reference guide for the tours is Trip Advisor website, which also allows anyone who has been on a tours to post a review. The website has vast pages references to tours such as the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Tour, the Lower East Side Food and Culture Tour, High Line Park and Greenwich Village Food Tour, NYC Speakeasy Walking Tour, SoHo, Little Italy and Chinatown Walking Tour, Private Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Tour, Manhattan to Brooklyn NYC Walking Tour, Greenwich village Walking Tour, High Line and Chelsea Walking Tour, Hamilton Musical Walking Tour, New York City Original Rock 'n' Roll Walking Tour, Hell's Kitchen Food Tour and Central Park Stroll, Highlights of Central Park Walking Tour, New York City Wall Street Inside Tour, Central Park Walking Tour, and the SoHo Wine Tasting and Walking Tour. It also gives helpful tips and information about how to book a tour.

If movies and television shows interest you, then New York City is the ultimate backdrop, and there is a tour bus company operating in the city that can provide trips to witness for yourself the filming locations for Friends, Sex and the City, Ghostbusters, Gossip Girl, When Harry Met Sally and many more, and normally lasts for 3 hours.
