Meredith was a great tour guide. Very knowledgeable. Had a death/ghostly story for each stop we made. The Highline was great at night. Looking forward to seeing it during day as well.

We toured with jon and approx 22 travellors. Jon was knowledgeable, friendly and a had a no of rather lame jokes to entertain us with. He didn't ramble or talk too fast. He also had a speaker which was good the louder parts of the city. Would thoroughly recommed this tour especially if interested in histoircal facts. Thanks jon 😄

We had a tour through Manhattan Downtown, covering Financial District, China Town, Little Italy and Soho. Jon was our guide. He was very knowledgeable, funny and interesting in his stories about New York. The tour lasted around 3 hours and was quite dynamic. I would definitely recommend it.

We took the Brooklyn tour with Onel who was great all around. He has a passion for Brooklyn, a lot of knowledge, and a good sense of humor. We vacillated between Free Tours by Foot and one of the other companies that charge up front, which also had good TA reviews. We tend to choose free (no set price) walking... More

Excellent tour with Dante! We booked 3 tours in NYC - Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, Ghost Tour. For the most part the tours were very good - but the tour with Dante, walking across the Brooklyn Bridge, DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights was by far the best. Dante is an excellent tour guide. He keeps the group together, speaks clearly, knows... More

Excellent day with Jon a couple of days ago in the downtown walking tour - he was interesting and knowledgable (you do need to check out the cast iron buildings though Jon, they are not cast in place). Masses of information with bits of detail that makes it stick in your mind and loads of stuff I didn't know. Pleasant... More

We did 2 free tours by foot and liked them both very much. Personal stories mixed with the history of the city and nice little spots you would not find yourself or even look at. We can highly recommend it!

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
