Had a great time on this tour with our guide Walter, a native New Yorker! Had done Sandeman's walking tours in Europe previously, and honestly preferred them simply because the history is richer. However, the tour in New York was really great too & I...More

The tour was great and Felipe did an amazing job giving all the information about the area and really useful tips! Recomiendo hacer el tour los primeros días en NY para poder aprovechar toda la información que da Felipe. Gracias!

I took this (paid) tour following an excellent Downtown (free) walking tour led by Zeb as I (correctly) guessed Zeb would be the guide. He gave us 2 hrs 45 mins of almost non-stop information of an historical and educational nature. A highlight being the...More

Signed up because of TripAdvisor ratings even though the details on the website were so minimal as to seem evasive. 30 people checked in by the 11 start time and there were another 30 still to be checked in. The website made vague assurances that...More

Very boring! I’ve taken several of this Sandemans tours in other cities and two years ago in NY, and this time was the worst. I was expecting to learn from the city not just walk down landmarks (which I could do on my own) Normally...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
