About New York Historical Tours


About Us



Our mission at New York Historical Tours is to give you the best possible New York experience through exciting and enriching professionally guided tours.  All of our tours are led by experienced and knowledgeable officially licensed local tour guides. On your tour you can expect to see some familiar places and make many new discoveries about the world’s most fascinating city, where every street and building has a story to tell.   We keep our group tours small so you can expect personalized attention and the highest level of service.


About Our Tours


All of our public tours are two hour professionally guided walking tours that move at a leisurely pace and are handicap and stroller accessible. Group tours start promptly at the designated meeting location for your chosen tour.    We recommend you plan to arrive a few minutes early wear comfortable walking shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.  There will be opportunities at certain times during the tour if requested to use a restroom though please keep in mind that it is your responsibility to reconnect with the tour.
