Top New York City Walking Tours

Walking tours are a great way to learn about a city as big as New York, focusing on specific neighborhoods or cuisines and exploring the city piece by piece. Here are a few of your options when it comes to walking tours in NYC.

Themed Walking Tours
If you're looking to dive into New York's food, music, or theater scenes, a themed walking tour is the way to go. Musical buffs can learn about the history of Broadway and get a behind-the-scenes look at New York's famous theater district or tour the historic sites that sync with the songs in the hit musical Hamilton, while foodies will want to take a speakeasy craft cocktail tour in the East Village or a dessert walking tour  around Greenwich Village to check out some of the city's best cupcakes, cookies, and gelato. Music lovers can see the venues where rock legends once performed and hung out on a rock 'n' roll history walking tour.

Neighborhood Walking Tours
Neighborhood walking tours are a great way to zero in on a particular part of Manhattan. Explore downtown and learn about the city's somber past on a 9/11 Memorial and Ground Zero walking tour, or get a feel for New York City business on a Wall Street walking tour. Combine three great neighborhoods with a SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown tour, or head up to Harlem for a walk through the borough's hip hop scene. If you're interested in Brooklyn, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge on a tour from Manhattan and explore the area's Dumbo neighborhood.
