So you’ve found yourself in the city that never sleeps? Lucky you! You’ll join one of our local New York hosts as they show you around the NYC that you want to see!

It’s one thing to discover a city as a tourist, but a whole different ball game to get to discover the real personality of the city. So even when your host shows you iconic landmarks like Time Square and the Empire State - although both are pretty hard to miss, it’s not obligatory that you do see them - it will be through their local lens.

If you think your thing is going to be more Brooklyn than brownstones in Manhattan, just let us know and you can head over there to explore a more off the beaten path neighbourhood like Williamsburg.

The point is, it’s up to you what you’d like to see and do; just let us know what you’re into and we’ll take care of the rest. Gear yourself up to be in a New York State of Mind.
