What You'll Get
Exploring a city's stately streets by foot is the second-best way to learn about urban life; the best way is slogging through its sewer system by Segway. Enjoy the fresher sightseeing option with today's Groupon: for $20, you get your choice of a walking tour for two people from ManhattanWalks (up to a $45.83 value).
Dusting the pavement with knowledge and insight, Marty Shore of ManhattanWalks leads tours across New York's tremendous steps, visiting various neighborhoods, landmarks, and hidden treasures. Discover the charming history of New Amsterdam's cobbled underwater streets or play a sanctified version of Truth or Dare at St. Paul's Chapel during the Downtown excursion. The Lower East Side tour drops by vintage synagogues and allows strutters the opportunity to nibble on eastern European eats, and the Greenwich Village expedition weaves through the quarter's crooked paths, which bloom with counterculture and exotic pooches. Head up to Harlem and roam along the vibrant streets once shuffled over by Count Basie, Langston Hughes, and Duke Ellington. A hike through Central Park ambles over a number of the urban oasis's 36 bridges and 58 miles of pathways while divulging details about little-known natural nuggets and hidden architectural delights. Each of the 10 tours can accommodate six to 12 rovers.
