Your local will give your trip a kickstart, helping you to make the most of your time in NY by showing you the highlights in the area you want to explore and helping you get familiar with the city and its unique culture. 

Learn about the city’s cultural practices, heritage, and cuisine as you explore the city together, perhaps stopping by a coffee shop, deli or local market to grab something to eat. 

Your local will also advise you on the best way to spend the rest of your trip, helping you to discover other areas of New York that they know you’ll love, as well as sharing their local travel tips and tricks so you won’t fall into the tourist traps!


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.
