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.
“This was one of the best tours we took. [The Tour Guide] was very informative and new a lot about the area. The places we stopped we all very good and the people that ran them were so friendly. I believe we purchased something at every stop, just wish there was we could have gotten some of the fresh pasta home! Highly recommend. Just remember you need to purchase a ticket for the train, subway pass does not get you on the train.”
“We took the Underground Railroad tour with this company in August and loved it! What struck us was the high level of expertise that the tour guide had. He was also enjoyable to listen to and friendly. The Underground Railroad and Slavery Tour was fabulous!”
“This tour was interesting, full of information and amazing. It was wonderful to be armed with the history of gospel before being born away by the choir and soloists at the service. Our guide … was wonderful and she clearly loved her job. She shared not only her beautiful voice but hey soul add well. This tour is a MUST and i think it will stay with me for a long time.”
“Great tour for gospel lovers! Despite the freezing weather, we enjoyed walking around Brooklyn and learning the basics of gospel music. The church service is long but it’s worth to hear the introducing songs.”
“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.”
“Just finished the tour …, and it was stellar. Great insight into the Bronx and its renaissance, and some great knowledge and understanding about the Bronx’s cultural contribution to contemporary culture and Hip Hop culture. Great tour and great guide… Thanks …!”
“What a wonderful tour! We learned so many new things, tasted delicious food and had a great time. Our guide, … was full of interesting facts and stories. We felt that we truly experienced life in Little Italy. Everything was on time and well organized. The entire afternoon was a very positive and professional experience. We would definitely recommend this tour and company to others.”
“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.”
“I took this Gospel-tour two weeks ago, solo as a visual impaired person (no peripheral sight). The tour guide made everything to make it easy for me to enjoy this tour. Our guide knew many interesting facts, and attending the Gospel-service at Brooklynite Tabernacle was amazing. You must also stay for the sermon, but you do that with pleasure to respect the church community. A must-do in New York on a Sunday.”
“We prebooked the tour via internet for our long- awaited first trip to New York early March 2016 via New York Pass. The address and tour details received by mail were very good, we found the guide … immediately and spent a wonderful 2.5 hours exploring Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO neighbourhoods. Very personal and interesting by a Brooklyn fan ;o) highly enjoyable and recommendable.”
