A very informative way to spend 2.5 hours in a new city. By the time I finished the tour, I got a pretty good idea of the landmark location and historical context to further explore on my own. Highly recommend the tour.

This is a great tour for anyone, not just women. Ryan expertly shares stories of some of the most amazing women you haven't heard of that are part of the fabric of New York. Really different than any other walking tour I have done.

The tour is very nice, our guide Jordan had a lot of information and made it very fun. However, the tour itself doesn't cover much area, small part of Financial district.

We're becoming veterans of Sandemans tours because they're just so damn good! You book online and just rock up at the appointed time. Friendly greeters tick you off and you're good to go, the idea being that you pay what you think it's worth at...More

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
