What you'll do
With five diverse boroughs to explore, it would be impossible to discover all of New York in half a day - so with limited time, what is it that you’d enjoy the most?
To discover a particular local neighbourhood or specific area of New York City, there’s no better experience. With a like-minded Local host by your side who shares your passions, you’ll be able to experience not only the main tourist attractions but uncover a few hidden spots that your Local host will hand pick for you.
Stop for a quick bite or coffee break at one of the local’s favourite cafés or street food markets, a hand-picked place that suits your preferences, budget and dietary requirements; and pop into any shops, galleries or places of interest that you stumble across on the way.
Get to know your Local host, who will give you recommendations for the rest of your trip so you can continue to eat, drink and see the city like a local; as well as sharing some practical insider tips for how to avoid the tourist traps!
What to expect
We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personalities and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you.
Your Local host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary and agree a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience you can always change your mind about what you want to do.
Your Local host may also suggest adjustments or new routes if they feel that there is something just around the corner that you may enjoy, or perhaps if the weather affects your itinerary.
Although you will see the main attractions in the area, your Local host will also help you to discover the places, things and stories that you won’t find in a guidebook and that make the city unique.

Great time in NYC - November 2016
We had a great time exploring NYC with Gabby in November 2016. A really fun, knowledgeable and professional local. 4 hours around Chelsea / High Line / Meat Packing District was really excellent. I would certainly book Gabby again. An experienced that really was fun.
