The Street Teacher provides private tours throughout New York City. These tours can be by foot or by car with driver, or your guide can step onto your coach for a panoramic tour of the city. Popular tours include (1) Greenwich Village; (2) The High Line, the Meatpacking District, and the Chelsea Art district; and (3) the 9/11 Memorial. We also specialize in meeting cruise passengers at any one of the three cruise ports in New York Harbor (the Hudson River piers on the West Side of Manhattan, the Red Hook Terminal in Brooklyn, or Cape Liberty in Bayonne, NJ) and giving them tours of New York and transfers to either their hotel for the night, back to their ship, or to an airport for their ultimate return home. We can also arrange private tours in virtually any area of New York and its metropolitan area - just call!

Bill is an amazing and knowledgeable tour guide. He showed us so many hidden gardens and places of interest in the East village. This was my fourth tour with Bill and he is the best!
