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.
“I had a fantastic time on this tour yesterday! Although I have lived in Manhattan for 20 years, this tour revealed parts of the city that I had no idea existed or have only seen as background shots in films. The guide, …, put everyone at ease with her friendly demeanor and obvious enthusiasm for the beautiful, quirky, and often poignant, historical details of the sites we visited. So pleased with the value and quality of service. I am not particularly informed about architecture and was surprised that the she was able to deliver so much information in such an entertaining format. Her ability to improvise when the hectic city intruded was superb. Looking forward to checking out of this company’s tours soon!”
“It was an excellent tour with … our guide. You really learn about the history of Bronx and get to see really nice local art. Places you probably wouldn’t visit without this tour. .”
“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!”
“Great tour – really interesting history of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Brooklyn area. And the views of Manhattan as you cross the bridge are fantastic. Our guide was really knowledgeable and helpful and we could ask him any questions about Brooklyn which is really useful if you’re planning to use the tour to further explore the Brooklyn area.”
“We did the NYC Gospel Walking Tour on Sunday November 9th. Although guide … had no voice he succeeded in explaining everything about gospel and Brooklyn Heights. He even sang (hard to do without a voice) and let us sing to get into the spirit of gospel. Great tour, great expercience, great host ! Thanks ! We’ll be back !”
“Great tour. We learned a lot about the area and we had to change our ideas about the Bronx. [The Tour Guide] was our great guide. She told us a lot of facts but also talked about living in the Bronx. She was passionated. Although most people don’t thing visiting the Bronx it is a real cool place. …”
“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.”
“Great, detailed information by tour guide about the history of gospel and an unforgettable service at the Brooklyn Tabernacle with its famous choir.”
“A no-miss if you want to discover a new aspect of NYC. Our guide, …, was amazing and adapted the tour to our wishes. Thank you.”
“Great tour, very interesting all around and a fantastic way to know all about the origins of gospel music. [The Tour Guide] was a fantastic guide, always making sure everyone was listening and enjoying themselves.”
