You’ll spend a few hours with your new-found friend (aka one of our local New York hosts) as they take you around iconic NYC sights and reveal hidden gems that only a New Yorker would be able to show you.

Times Square is pretty hard to miss, but there’s more to life than landmarks. We want you to experience the soul of the city too, so by all means, please let us know which iconic spots you’d be interested to stop by, but your host can’t wait to show you a few secret spots along the way too.

Wander the different avenues, spot the skyscrapers you might’ve seen in a movie or two and venture into the array of eclectic neighbourhoods.

Stop by a diner for a real-life movie experience, or let your host recommend an Italian deli where you can pick up coffee and cannolis, or maybe an artisanal doughnut shop.

Just let us know your vibe and if there’s anything, in particular, you’d like to see, and we’ll take care of the rest.
