New York Private and Small Group Guided Tours

New York City is a complex, sometimes contradictory, and ultimately awe-inspiring metropolis that can be dazzling—and dizzying.
New York is one of the world’s busiest and most dynamic cities, considered a global center for art, finance, and media, but that wasn't always the case. Initially a 17th-century Dutch settlement, and then a British colony, New York was a port town whose evolution over 200 years owes much to the immigrant energy that fueled it. The city's distinct boroughs, neighborhoods, and landmarks have since become the stuff of legend: from the Statue of Liberty, beacon of hope for millions of immigrants, to Broadway, the heart of American theater, to the iconic brownstones of Brooklyn and the gleaming skyscrapers gracing Manhattan's skyline. Experience The Big Apple's fast-paced energy with Context's New York private tours and New York small group tours.

New York Private Tours and New York Small Group Tours

The New York private guides who lead our New York private tours and New York small group tours have put together a diverse offering in the city. Some of the most popular New York guided tours include our Brooklyn Tour, including a walk on the Brooklyn Bridge, and our New York Food Tour in Chinatown and Little Italy, which passes over tourist traps in favor of some of the remaining bastions of immigrant cuisine in this part of town. Other options include our New York Tour for kids, led by a family-friendly guide trained in Visual Thinking Strategies, both out on the city streets or inside one of many world-renowned museums, our Met Crash Course, in which we visit one of the world's greatest collections of art with an art historian, or our Jewish Food and Culture Tour, where we amble through New York's iconic Lower East Side while sampling famous bites from such places as Yonah Schimmel's.

This is a great tour. Michele was fantastic! Her knowledge and pacing were perfect. Can’t give her enough accolades. Just a great experience all around. Thank you Michele and Context.
She was fantastic and we would book another tour with Caroline in a heartbeat.
We enjoyed the tour, but we realized at the end of the tour (@11:50 AM - LESS THAN 2 hours) that our tour was supposed to be 3 hours (10:00 - 1:00). We have been on other tours (NYC and Paris) and found this was (1) less detailed (2) overall our least enjoyable.
