Full description
This experience is essential to anyone who is serious about exploring the best of New York. With your savvy local host, you can rediscover the original charm and lively character of the extremely vibrant Manhattan. Travel through the best parts of Central Park, where New Yorkers go jogging and cycling. Walk downtown, stopping along the way at the best cafes loved by real New Yorkers. Stroll down an impressive street for shopping, taking in the world-renowned shop names that are known for being frequented by celebrities. Take in the stunning views of the surrounding architectural masterpieces while you sip on a Manhattan at a rooftop bar. Then, allow your local host to lead you towards the charming, old-style covered market that is Greenwich Village, stopping to see the High Line and other exciting venues. This experience is great for all ages. Book this meet-up with a New Yorker and you will be contacted within 24-hours with questions about your preferences and interests. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Replicate the experience of spending time in a city with a friend who lives there as the best travel moments come from going beneath the surface of a destination and discovering it through local lens. Based on the things that you would like to see and do, a personalized and bespoke itinerary will be built just for you. Please note that this will be outlined but flexible.  During the exploration, if you feel like changing direction, or if your local host believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, he/ she will suggest and discuss with you changes to the itinerary. You will be able to arrange a meeting point and time with your host in the most convenient place for you.  Enjoy discovering amazing spots in New York that you don't know about and are difficult to find in any guidebook or on the internet as they are lesser-known to the crowd but loved by locals. Let your private local host show you the New York you will love.
