Join a like-minded Local Host to explore a neighbourhood or two in the city, discovering hidden local gems as well as the city’s highlights, all through a local lens of course!

Pick up the street food and snacks that NY is famous along the way if it takes your fancy, as well as enjoying lunch at a local restaurant, deli, food market or cafe; a handpicked place that suits your preferences, budget, and dietary requirements. 

As well as visiting the places you most want to see, stop by local spots and places of interest along the way that your host recommends to get an authentic insight into local life in New York. 

Your Local Host will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other areas of NY that you will love and revealing other hidden gems that they know you’ll love. 

  

What To Expect 

We’ll be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality, tastes 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 and eat. 

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 well known sights, 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.
