Big Apple Slices

Walking Tours of New York City


The best way to experience New York City seems simple enough: hit the streets! But do you really want to wander willy-nilly through the streets hoping to get the full flavor of the Big Apple while you fumble through a guide book and dodge oncoming heavy foot traffic (not to mention Citibikes and taxis)? Instead, make it easy on yourself and take an efficiently planned walking tour with a native New Yorker who will give you an enjoyable and informative overview of the people, places, and events that have shaped New York City.


Big Apple Slices Tours provides you with carefully selected slices of the Big Apple that take you primarily on river-to-river walking tours (Hudson to East rivers)—get to the core of such dynamic neighborhoods as Greenwich Village, Hell’s Kitchen, the Financial District, and the East Village (among others) as you are thoroughly introduced to the people, places, and events that are the real heart and soul of the Big Apple.


These tours don’t simply point and identify noteworthy architecture—they make use of the incredible literary, artistic, journalistic, and photographic legacies of this rich city that give you a much more comprehensive picture than what you can get out of a simple selfie against, say, the Chrysler Building—all delivered in an informative, friendly, and entertaining manner. You’ll leave each Big Apple Slices tour with an annotated list of resources for you to continue to nibble on the incredibly rich history of the greatest city in the world. Along the way, of course, suggestions and recommendations will be freely given for favorite local restaurants, welcoming watering holes, great shopping opportunities (both high-end and more bargain-minded shops) as well as places to indulge your every whim for how to savor this most delectable city.


Come join a highly-regarded New York City tour guide (and historian/educator) with over a decade experience in designing and conducting expertly guided tour experiences for people of all ages, nationalities, and backgrounds.


Incredibly creative ways of peeling away the many fascinating layers of New York City’s history and culture await you – come and take away your own slice of this city that’s so nice we named it twice: New York, New York!
