Tours of New York City by Subway & Foot

We at Real New York Tours are the pioneers of the full-day subway and walking tour of NYC. For the past decade we've given thousands of tours to people from around the world who want to experience real New York. We are locals who live it, breathe it, love it, and want you to as well. We explore the history, the cracks and crevices, the side streets, and culture of real New York neighborhoods. We will ride the subway, walk the streets, and meet the people who have become the fabric of this great city. We are following current New York Covid guidelines for In Person Tours in NYC. Face masks or face coverings must be worn throughout the tour, with the exception of eating and drinking, and 6 feet of social distance should be maintained between the group and the tour guide. Real PEOPLE, Real STORIES, Real NEW YORK!

“Real New York Tours was recommended to me by a colleague and it did not disappoint. What a great way to gain an understanding of the city and what it might be like to have lived in it. Myself and others in the group who had been to NYC before learned things we never knew. I would recommend this as a great tour option, especially to do in the first few days of being in NYC.”

"An awesome decision to book them. We were told by numerous folks to do the hop on hop off buses. Trey, our host, put it best: that's an aquarium, this is scuba diving. We had a little bit of an adventure on the subway from Greenwich Village to Central Park on the 42nd St stop. Ask Trey for the story, glad to be part of Real New York Tours lore.”
