About Timeline Touring - Day Tours
Timeline Touring ventures past the routine and captures the ethnic flavor of NYC with our tours of Jewish New York. Created by a born and bred New Yorker, Timeline Touring explores the fascinating history of the Jewish presence in the Big Apple. Our neighborhood walking tours become eye opening experiences as little known tidbits of information are shared with tour participants and the story of generations of Jewish immigrants and their rich history and culture come to life. Our regularly scheduled walking tours include weekly tours of the Lower East Side and Borough Park, Brooklyn. We also offer private group tours to these, and other neighborhoods of Jewish interest such as Harlem, Wall Street, Ellis Island and more. Our tours are perfect for JCC groups, Temple groups, convention groups, family celebrations and reunions or for those interested in a trip down memory lane back to the old neighborhood.

We have been using Timeline Touring for at least 10 years, and it's always a highlight of our time in New York. Jeff is knowledgeable, kind, and welcoming. Thanks for another great tour!

This tour was the highlight of my trip to New York. I have a particular interest in Judaism and for me, this tour offered me an excellent opportunity to increase my knowledge and see with my own eyes the things I’ve read and wondered about over the years. Our guide, Jeff, was superb. His enthusiasm and abundant knowledge can’t be rivalled and he taught us so much. He was also very open minded and receptive to our frank questions, giving honest and balanced answers. He gave us an excellent insight into various facets of the culture - kosher certifications and food, marriage, charity, roles of men and women, attire, conduct, religious behaviour, education, cultural attitudes towards certain concepts, control of external influences, religious festivals etc. I was most disappointed when it came to an end. If you are genuinely interested in Judaism and orthodox culture then you cannot and will not beat this experience. I literally loved every minute of it.

We enjoyed our tour with Jeff Altman very much. Was very informative and eye opening. He clearly knew the area well and articulated its history nicely.

Jeff is an absolute pleasure and a true mensch! We toured the Lower East Side, Borough Park, and the Flatbush Jewish-Syrian areas. Jeff went above and beyond to tailor the itinerary to our specific interests. He is knowledgeable in these areas' history in general, and in the story of Jewish immigration in particular. He keeps his talk interesting and lively. So much so, that the day flew by. I can see him leading a very successful tour of adolescents and teens as well, and keeping them focused throughout. Contact Jeff, you will not regret it :)

My husband and I took a tour with Jeff after our son had done the same tour with him and could only give very positive reviews. Jeff made it all so interesting and there was lots of discussion along the way as he wanted to be asked questions which developed into further discussion. He is very knowledgeable and certainly filled the 2 hours with lots of engaging information. He was also very helpful in finding us a cab at the end of the tour.
