Are you ready for New York City?

Going far beyond the usual sights, this trip is not your standard New York City tour. Instead, it’s a grand adventure for all your senses as we wander through a wide variety of intriguing neighborhoods in Manhattan, Brooklyn and beyond in order to show you the history, culture, cuisine and activities that tell the complete story of this diverse and wondrous metropolis.

The focus is on exploring the places that you won’t read about in guidebooks and the places you would never know about without a passionate team of guides wanting to give you the ultimate NYC experience.

Come wander the real NYC with us, digging deep into its fascinating local heart and soul!

What other travelers say

My boyfriend organised a NY tour with Jessie as a surprise. Probably one of the best surprises I’ve had. Jessie was an amazing guide, so knowledgeable and easy going that it felt like we were walking around the city with a friend. A skill that definitely sets her ahead of the pack is that she is an incredible photographer and takes photos you and all the places you visit, which for us was extremely handy because we don’t take my photos and we don’t always ask people to take them of us. This was the best way to see NY, Jessie knew all the best places to visit, eat and drink and even gave us a list of places to visit during the remainder of our stay. I couldn’t recommend anyone more, she made us feel so comfortable and we genuinely had a great time with her taking us around the city (a stop over in the bar also helped our feet after 6 hours)!

It didn't feel like a tour - it felt like Jessie and I had a mutual friend who had set us up to hang out so she could show me around the city. It was relaxed, casual and personal. Not only did Jessie take me to some cool places - artisan chocolate, cheese and coffee places, a record store, vintage stores, not to mention all the street art - but gave me loads of recommendations to use during my trip. Having the day captured by a professional photographer was the icing on the cake. Thank you Jessie!

I visited NYC last summer. Jessica was my tour guide. She was utterly marvelous! Flexible, helpful, considerate...I saw everything I wanted to see. As she knows the city inside out, there was no way we could get lost. I highly recommend Jessica as a tour guide. Simply excellent!

Jessie Festa

Guide for: New York City

 

I’m a native New Yorker, certified sommelier, travel blogger and licensed sightseeing guide who loves showing visitors the important sites of the city as well as taking them beyond their guidebooks to discover lesser-known New York. Ever since childhood, when I heard how my grandparents came through Ellis Island from Italy, I have felt a strong love for this city, especially for the fact that you can travel the world without ever leaving the city’s edge. Aside from living in Brooklyn I also spend a lot of time on the road, covering my travels on my solo female and offbeat travel blog, Jessie on a Journey, and my online responsible tourism and culture magazine, Epicure & Culture.
