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 the global source for many industries including 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, among many other attractions. Experience New York's fast-paced energy with Context's private and small group guided tours.

Barfu was an excellent guide. Her tour was well organized and structured. She has an in depth knowledge of all manner of art. She was very engaging and patient with us. She also took care to pause for bathroom breaks and to sit down to rest our legs. Barfu is one of the best guides we’ve had.
John was very personable and knew his information. It was an overview of the massive Museum...I realized that I should have requested specific areas that the children would be very excited in seeing, like the fashion.
Everything was spectacular!! Ryan was soooo knowledgeable and friendly. He was thorough and we learned so much. We were very glad that he was our guide. We would recommend him to everyone. I already recommended your company to a gentleman sitting next to me on the flight back to Boston. Thank you so much for making my children’s 1st trip to NYC a memorable one!!
