Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Because this is a private tour, you can pick your group’s departure time. Pick from any time between 10am and 4pm. The pricing for this private walking tour of New York’s Jewish Lower East Side is set for your group, but you can have up to 10 people in your group.

    Your walking excursion through the Jewish Lower East Side meets on Houston Street a little before your chosen departure time. Your guide fills you in on the history of the Jewish immigrants who sacrificed everything to make their way to America. As you stroll along the neighborhood’s streets, hear stories about what life was like for the immigrants once they arrived.

    Stop by one of the first Jewish pawn shops in the area, and continue on to pass by old Jewish banks, eateries, theaters, and synagogues. During a 40-year period, more than two million Jews flocked to New York, and your guide fills you in on the hardships and successes this group of people had.

    Your tour ends at Orchard and Delancey Street, where your guide gives you directions to the next place you’d like to go — whether that be your hotel or a place to eat or shop (own expense).
