NYC GoGreen Tours’ guides lead bipedal bodies through the sights and sounds of the Big Apple’s quintessential cityscapes without releasing a single excess drop of CO2 into the atmosphere. The Iconic and Historic tour trots along the shadows of such stately landmarks as the New York Public Library, Macy’s, and the Chelsea Hotel. Pop Culture and Nolita sightseers alight upon noteworthy artist abodes, eye-fetching television locales, and somber monuments to the world’s forgotten sitcom extras before taking Little Italy’s rich history in Nolita. The top-notch guides on the Nieuw Amsterdam and Gangs of New York tour will expound upon Old New York’s architectural triumphs and the brutal brawls of the Five Points area.
NYC GoGreen Tours
Recipients of TripAdvisor's certificate of excellence in 2012, NYC GoGreen Tours keep themselves carbon-neutral chiefly by sticking to the favored transportation of native New Yorkers: walking. Their catalog of New York walking tours gives patrons a detailed look of the city that's difficult to get from riding on a bus or the roof of a subway car. Each jaunt focuses on one neighborhood or attraction, whether it's Central Park, Harlem, or downtown. Guides toss an entertaining stream of history and trivia over their shoulders as they lead their groups, pointing out remarkable landmarks.
The company also hops onto eco-friendly wheels to lead bike tours and pedicab tours. Flocks of bikes ride through lower Manhattan, beneath the Brooklyn Bridge, and Central Park, or patrons can sit back in a pedicab carriage while their guide cycles through Chinatown and Gramercy Park.
