Featured Tour of the Month
Great Women of New York Tour
Women have shaped every aspect of the city's growth since before it was founded.
This tour explores the pivotal role women have played in the development of NYC and tells the hidden stories of the female pioneers whose contributions made this city into a great metropolis.
We begin with the story of the matriarchs of the Lenape Indians, the original Native American inhabitants. We then tell the stories of women trailblazers including the only women to start a village in colonial America, the first woman to be injured in fighting during the Revolutionary war, enslaved women, woman suffragist, Wall Street pioneers, religious leaders, ground breaking writers, social justice crusaders, philanthropists, and 9/11 heroes.
“An educational and informative tour. The information was delivered clearly and the tour was well-paced for all those attending. I learned a lot about slavery in the early days of the city, and would strongly recommend this tour to anyone with a thirst for knowledge.”
“Today was thoroughly enjoyable! Our guide … was so informative and had a great sense of humour. My partner and I were not sure if we were going to enjoy it however it turned out to be one of the best days so far. Excellent and I would most definitely recommend this for anyone who wants to experience New York old school – 10/10”
“What a delight The Tour guide … had a fantastic knowledge of both the art and the neighbourhoods we were in. The collections of art were fantastic and with out the tour we would never have found them. This was the highlight of an 8 day trip to new york. Our sincere thanks to [the Tour Guide] for a fantastic tour.”
“An informative tour given by a hard-core fan of the Brooklyn Bridge. Lots of details both historical and technical about the bridge, and history and tips of the Dumbo area.”
“First and foremost let me compliment our tour guide … on well presented and informative tour. She made the experience so much more enjoyable. Brooklyn Bridge is a construction marvel. The views from her majestic presence over the East river are breathtaking. When in New York you simply have to walk this bridge and immerse yourself into the atmosphere that surrounds this iconic structure. Our memory of this sightseeing tour was so much more enhanced by the experience of Inside Out Tours”
“I thought the tour was great. Our guide was very informative. We got some wonderful photos and he was only happy to take some for us. Would highly recommend this tour.”
“Very easy to book online (the day before) and great tour guide … . Walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and explored Dumbo. Learnt a lot of interesting history from Matt re the construction of the bridge and the town of Dumbo. I’m not a lover of history but he was very engaging. Walked at a good pace with regular stops and photo opportunities. Very satisfied with this tour and would use this company again.”
“Excellent tour, really enjoyable. Our tour guide … was very informative and passionate about the subject, he kept the energy up throughout and took time to interact with all members of our group. Went beyond the typical facts you would expect, and make me view NY a little differently during my time there, very impressive!”
“Great experience to see and learn a bit more about the buildings you normally only are passing by. We had a fantastic tour guide … who really made this 3 h tour to one of the high lights during our 5 day long visit in NY. Highly recommended!”
“My daughter and I had a wonderful time with the alternative arts walking tour in Brooklyn. Our tour guide was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and made me view streets arts in a very new way. We had a plenty of time to take photographs. It was really a neat way of learning more about New York. I also liked that we stopped at a local coffee shop. It was nice to relax a bit, participate in the local economy, and have a chance to sit down. We had two other walkings tours, which were all very good, and wish that there was this component of stopping at a coffee shop at each tour.”
