Feel free to message me when you'd want me to add availability for this tour in case you don't see a suitable option! :) This tour is the first thing you should do upon arrival in NYC. It is the most action-packed and best value introduction you'll find to our most iconic neighborhood, Midtown. This is an area through which I've personally guided thousands of people. Even though the market value of my tour is $40usd per person (just check out similar tours on Airbnb!) I am so confident you’ll enjoy it that oftentimes I will lower the booking cost so that it is completely up to you to decide at the end of the tour if the experience deserves a generous tip that matches market value. I design these tours to maximize the amount of sights and historical/cultural understanding you'll experience, I’m here to make sure you don’t waste a single step and enjoy every second of your time. I will also make several suggestions on how to save time and money during the rest of your time in the city as well as answer any questions you may pose during the tour. You will see and learn something interesting about each of the sights mentioned while walking at a pleasant pace. All of this will last approximately 3 hours with several opportunities for bathroom/water breaks. This tour is 100% wheelchair accesible.
Hello! :) My name is Caetano and I'm happy to be your guide. I'm a NYC native and polyglot who has been working as a local licensed tour-guide for over 5 years. Outside of the USA, I've designed/performed historic and culinary tours in the Netherlands, Mexico, and Vietnam. I have over 200 personal 5-star reviews to my name on TripAdvisor. I grew up working in a hotel and started a top-ranked restaurant at 18 years old, I've been in the tourism and service industries literally all of my life. I've lived in Mexico, Spain, Honduras, Malaysia, and the Netherlands and have traveled to over 30 countries. History, activism, politics, travel, and art are major passions of mine. I genuinely enjoy helping people enjoy the city in the most efficient, interesting, and entertaining way possible and I'd love to show you my hometown! :)
We will discuss a wide range of historical events while our route will include views and stories of several landmarks such as: Grand Central Terminal, Chrysler Building, United Nations Headquarters, 42nd Street, 5th Avenue, New York Public Library, Bryant Park, American Radiator Building, Empire State Building, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick's Cathedral.
One water bottle, there will be several opportunities to refill it on the way.
Most people do random marathon walks when they visit New York City, I make them less strenuous by planning a more efficient route so no steps or time are wasted. Make sure you had a big meal, good rest, and are up for one of the most impressive walks of your life. Pack light and I'll do the rest :)
