Most guided sightseeing tours pose severe health risks—muscle atrophy, loss of bone density, and blinding rage, to name a few—due to the lack of physical activity. You’ve probably suffered one or all of those symptoms while on these tours:

  • Manhattan Segway Tour: Whir around the city without using your feet. See the sights as if you were living in 2067.
  • NYC Saddled-Lion Tour: Anyone standing in your way risks life and limb. Stops include dumpsters and places with high densities of fearful humans.
  • Big Apple Piggyback Tour: Evoke jealousy from all as you experience the city on the shoulders of muscle-man guides.

Fortunately, Walkin’ NY circumvents the shortcomings associated with the above non-movement-based tours (painful side effects, death, etc.). See New York on foot with today’s fantastic deal.

Details

  • Lower Manhattan–Financial District: Watch unemployed Wall Streeters grovel for change where the money used to be.
  • Green Tour–Battery Park: Take a stroll through the greenest section of the city and see its eco-friendly buildings. Learn what’s being done to help the environment.
  • Lower East Side: Learn about the waves of change—from immigration to gentrification—that have taken place in one of the city’s historic neighborhoods.
  • Central Park: Discover the history and geology of the most famous park in the world with stops at Central Park Zoo, the Naumburg Bandshell, and the Delacorte Music Clock.
