Walking NYC's first tours didn't consist of groups of tourists: just one person with curiosity and a sense of adventure. The founders loved wandering the streets of New York without a destination, and these jaunts resulted in discovery—of the city, of its people, food, and places; of the locales that don't get coverage in guide books or cabdrivers' diaries. The goal of Walking NYC is to introduce tourists to the true character of the city and to immerse them in local cuisine and flavor. In addition to the big landmarks, guides also shine a light on the overlooked and forgotten beauties of the city, including parks, buildings, and cultural institutions. They offer neighborhood walking tours for spots such as Chinatown, Harlem, and Greenwich Village.
