I fell in love with New York the moment I set foot here. It's been over 30 years now. I love this city so much that I became an NYC tour guide. I enjoy showing people different faces of NYC - from the bustling city of skyscrapers to the quiet streets of out-of-the-tourists-way neighborhoods. I love telling stories of people who made New York what is it - the self-made millionaires, famous writers, daring architects, beautiful and powerful women. I can show you major landmarks as well as secret spots and cozy old bars where you can feel NYC history. I can take you to places where sounds of jazz rule the night and people swing-dance - a dance which was born in Harlem, NY, and had swept the world with its infectious joy. I'm a licensed sightseeing guide with many years of experience. I'm truly fascinated with the unique history of New York City and love to share my passion for it. I've studied History of Art at Harvard Extension School (Cambridge, Mass) and New School (NYC) and took classes on NYC Architectural History at Cooper Union (NYC).

I am a New York City tour guide and have been doing bus tours for 14 years and walking tours for eight. I can easily do a standard tour on, say, Central Park, Greenwich Village, or the World Trade Center but I offer a general tour with many popular places in New York. I also have my own niche tour of "Titanic Sites in New York City". I like tour-guiding in the city because I am also a tourist and I like to feel the vicarious thrill of visitors. Being a tour-guide AND a tourist, I have traveled to Nova Scotia, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Anchorage, Cleveland, Niagara Falls, Washington DC, London, Liverpool, Belfast, Bangkok, Singapore, Philippines, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Fukuoka, Yokohama, Nara, Shizuoka, Hiroshima, Miyajima Island, Mt. Kosaya, Mt. Fuji and many other places.

United States of America (USA)

My name is Adam, and I’m a licensed tour guide here in New York City. With so many places to visit and an extensive subway system, New York City can feel overwhelming. There's nothing I love more than helping someone feel at ease and have a great experience exploring the amazing areas of New York. I offer private and fun full- and half-day neighborhood walking tours for families and small groups. With every tour, I aim to help people learn to navigate around town, hear great stories, capture wonderful photos, laugh a lot, and make amazing memories together. I am passionate, energetic, quick-witted, and love making people say "wow" at all the sites. I'm originally from Orlando, FL, but have lived in numerous places, including San Francisco, Atlanta, and even Sydney, Australia. Prior to becoming a guide, I worked for years helping well-respected non-profit organizations tell their stories and raise funds to support their critical work. For the past 10 years, my wife and I have called New York City home. We absolutely love living here and are always out exploring the city. It'll be an amazing day out in the city for you and your traveling companions. I can't wait to meet you.

New York Tour Guide - Rory L.

United States of America (USA)

My experience as a NYC tour guide spans the better part of a decade and has helped cement my reputation as one of the most sought-after tour guides in town. Indeed, I have had the honor of being named one of New York’s top tour guides. My exuberance, theatricality, passion and extensive knowledge of the city's history speaks for itself. I have a lifetime of exposure to the art of storytelling as a professional ballet dancer, actor and musician and I continue to grow in my abilities. You see, I am New York. My great-grandfather was the architect and musician to the King of Norway. His journey impressed me. My father was a prince of his tribe in Nigeria. His journey inspired me. My Grandmother was first generation Irish American. Her journey motivates me. And her parent's legacy begins a trail on Ellis Island. They all have a story to tell that lives through me. My fascination with immigration has been, in turn, the discovery of myself AND New York. As a true amalgamation of ethnicity, I am New York and my story, albeit specific, generically lives in the American dream. So what is it about New York? In discovering my own family history, I discovered the answer and it lies deep beneath the surface of the city, within the heart.

As a native New Yorker the constant thread through my years of NYC living has been a great love for my hometown and the values we embody. This led me to get a sightseeing license and share my passion by running and performing my own creation for the past 3 years : Downtown Sightseeing Theater. Not only do I get to show off areas of Manhattan most people (especially New Yorkers) don't normally go to, but I get to exercise my creative and theatrical muscles. I love the jolt of energy and excitement I feel when I see guests engaging in the mystery of the tour, or asking our femme fatale a saucy question, or something as simple as a guest telling me they learned something new. It's moments such as these that me want to share our tour over and over again. Any questions please ask and I hope to see you on a future tour!

New York Tour Reviews

Went above and beyond!

Julia did great and helped us out so much. She went out of her way to help us see everything that we wanted to see and was very flexible. She also was very knowledgeable about New York. I highly recommend Julia and this review doesn’t even do her justice.

Jobe H.

Thank you, Jobe! I am so glad that you and your family had a special trip I could be a part of. It was my pleasure! All the best, Julia

Great Way to Explore the City

It was my adult daughter's first time in NYC and while I know the City, I thought a tour might be a good way to orient her to the City. It was fun, educational and helped us know how to move around the City. Julia is a true New Yorker who knows, the institutions, history and culture of this great City. She is responsive to requests and had great ideas of how to share the City's delights and treasures. I highly recommend her as a tour guide.

Thank you! It was a pleasure to meet you both!
