I wholeheartedly believe jumping on a tour is one of the best ways to get to know a piece of the city on a more intimate level. But, there are thousands of tours to choose from, so where do you even start if you want something a little different?!
Well, first of all, follow your passion. If you are really into fashion, join a tour of the Garment District. Or if theater is your jam, head to a tour of the Great White Way. There’s no point in taking a tour of NYC Historic Sites, for instance, if you have a general dislike for history, right?
I’ve rounded up five great experiences below based on overall entertainment and enjoyment value, and if I would recommend the tour personally to a very picky family member or friend.
Oh! And one last thing. Tours aren’t only for tourists. New Yorkers are lucky enough to call this city home, so why not shake up your weekend routine and check out one that interests you?
