Lets face it, New York tours are only as good as their tour guides. Real New York Tours gives people the opportunity to see the city through the eyes of real New Yorkers. Real New York Tours explores the history, the cracks and crevices, the side streets, and culture of real New York neighborhoods. We’ll ride the New York subway, pound the pavement, and meet the people who have become the fabric of this great city. Together we will feel the electricity that drives everyday New Yorkers. This is real New York!

Family holiday. Three boys (14,13 10) Took the six hour tour. Kristy was the super efficient administrative contact. Met at the hotel at 10am by Trey. Knowledgable, funny and a great communicator with all ages. Get him to do The Donald - seriously he would give Alec Baldwin a run on SNL. Six hours flew past. We have done a... More

My husband and I did this tour in January 2017 and can't recommend them enough. Trey was our tour guide and we had a small group that day. We did the 6.5hr Dozen Apples tour, and Trey was great with all the information on all the places we visited and answering any questions. It was a great day and start... More

We had Ben as our tour guide for the private big apple tour. He took us all over Manhattan, we saw Wall Street, the 9/11 Memorial, Chinatown where we ate the best dumplings, Little Italy, Central Park, SOHO. Ben knew all of the best spots to stop for coffee or snacks and we tried them all. There are so many... More

My advice is to make this the last tour you take before you head home. I made the mistake of taking it earlier on and my feet reminded me everyday what a mistake that was. I am 38 and fit but damn 6 1/2 hours of walking did me in. Beyond that I just felt we spent more time walking... More

We enjoyed the 3hr tour with our guide Jeanette on 28th Dec 2016. Starting from Greenwich Village which is so unique on Manhattan to the hustle and bustle of Soho, Little Italy, Chinatown and finally finishing at St Pauls near One World Observatory. The tour was so informative and gave us a greater understanding of the heritage, cultures and development... More

Three of us did a private 6 hour tour with Greg. Greg was the perfect tour guide and made sure to focus on things we were interested in like tv locations and art work and pointing out good coffee and food!

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
