New York City Guided Tours by the Experts

June 19, 2018
Take a bigger bite of the Big Apple with a small group or private tour – hands down the best way to experience the city.

Pride of guides Context Travel run private and small group (max 6 people) ambles led by a crack team of experts, from art historians and PhDs to culture mavens and specialists. Alongside the neighbourhood and cultural tours are a range of themed itineraries – spanning architecture to the history of cocktails – or you can arrange a tailor-made jaunt. Whichever way you swing, expect an enlightening walking conversation.

Should you be overwhelmed by the Met’s stagger collections, book a personalised, behind-the-scenes peek with Museum Hack. This 2.5-hour VIP experience explores the vaults of one of America's most famous cultural institutions, revealing the lesser-known stories and secrets along the way. Better still, wine is included – cheers! 

Frequently dubbed ‘the best food tour in NYC’, Food of New York is a must for gourmands. Take a culinary canter through Little Italy and Chinatown, graze the food stalls at Chelsea Market and discover the real-deal mom n’ pop eateries of Greenwich Village. All that’s required is a hearty appetite. 

The absolutely fabulous Pamela Parisi has more than 20 years experience as a model, designer and retailer; book a tour through her company Elegant Tightwad and you’ll gain insider access to the Garment District’s best showrooms, sample sales and bargain outlets. Shop to it!
