NEW YORK CITY
Though I'm constantly escaping New York to explore the world, New York City is my home and I can't imagine living anywhere else. For the past ten years, I've been helping travelers explore the five boroughs like a local, go beyond the usual tourist traps, and see the REAL New York City. Let's plan an authentic trip that will allow you to get a real feel (and taste!) for the city that never sleeps!
Based on your interests and travel style (biking, live music, street art, fine arts, foodie tours, history, culture, museums, theater) I will craft a personalized itinerary to make your experience here truly unforgettable! Contact me to start planning your one-of-a-kind escape to New York City.
New York City never sleeps and always EATS so come hungry and well-rested! Hot dog and falafel carts abound but why not bypass the ordinary and explore all of the international flavors the city has to offer? From Venezuelan arepas and Salvadorian pupusas to Trinidadian doubles and Chinese dim sum, New York City has something for everyone. Discover the best pizza and homemade ice cream before enjoying a cocktail at an underground speakeasy. Vegetarian and vegan foodie tours are also available!
the real chinatown + little italy
If pushing your way through crowds of tourists and vendors hawking knock-off purses is your thing, head to lower Manhattan's famous Chinatown and Little Italy. If enjoying handmade pasta with old-school Italians smoking hand-rolled cigars is more your style, let's get you to the REAL Little Italy in the Bronx. Want to feast on spicy noodles in Chinese-style food halls packed with Mandarin-speakers? Let's plan an escape to the Queens, where Chinese immigrants flock to enjoy the flavors of their childhoods and stock up on hard-to-find ingredients from bustling food markets.
New York City is consistently ranked as the world's best graffiti city and Brooklyn is the epicenter of the ongoing street art movement. Join one of my NYC Street Art or Brooklyn Graffiti tours to discover world-famous murals and hidden street art that most locals don't even know about! Street art walking tours are available but to see it all, join me for a graffiti bike tour!
