What you’ll do

Who are we kidding, you couldn’t see all of New York in a day. But you’ll join one of our hosts to have a pretty good go at it!

You’ll see iconic attractions like the Empire State Building, soak up the madness at Times Square and Broadway, stroll down Fifth Avenue or through Central Park (or both, it’s all up to you) and pop into the Met to marvel at some art, if that’s your thing.

We’ll do our best to squeeze in as many of the iconic sights you’ve been dreaming of seeing, and your host can’t wait to show you a few of their favorite hidden spots along the way too.

And there’s always time for good food - so let us know if your vibe is more grabbing a classic NY slice of pizza on the run, or you want to settle in for a feast in a food-obsessed neighborhood like Greenwich. You’ll be in a New York state of mind in no time.

Our Picks

  • Enjoy 8 hours with your host, who will show you some of the places which make NYC so extraordinary

  • Experience what you want out of the city - the world-renowned sights, avenues and of course, Central Park

  • Discover some of New York's hidden gems and neighborhoods which suit your vibe

  • Get recommendations for places to eat, visit and things to do during the rest of your trip

New York

Would like to say what a fantastic time we had with Mei she was brilliant. Really felt like we were meeting up with a old friend and the information she gave us was great. Would highly recommend her we even braved the subway the following day on her advice as the quickest way to get around thanks Mei for a wonderful day

Great host and great day!

I booked a one on one tour of New York. My guide, Denise, was amazing. Not only did she take me to sights that I wanted to see but she also included some things that she thought might interest me. We had a great day with lots of laughs along the way. I would go back to New York in a heart beat and would definetly catch up with Denise again. Thank you City Unscripted for a great guide and a great day!

Best part of our trip!

Greg was a great tour guide, not only does he love his city, he knows it like the back of his hand! He showed us all the different areas of NYC, explained what to do in each area i.e where to eat/drink and what to do there. He also took us away from all the tourist areas and showed us places we would have never gone to on our own which was great - we got the real new yorker experience! Greg provided us with some great facts and history about the city and showed us some of the city’s hidden gems. He is a big foodie likes us so was able to give us lots of recommendations for markets and restaurants which we loved! He also gave us some good tips and apps to download for the subway, restaurants, taxis etc. which were helpful for the rest of our trip. We had a great time with Greg, he is very easy to get along with and clearly has a passion for his city – we would gladly recommend him!
