You wander through Brooklyn Heights and South Manhattan via the Brooklyn bridge. The tour lasts for 13 hours and is led by Jerry who is fantastic, very funny, nice and full of energy. There is a good athmosphere during the tour and you don't see the Time passing. Wear comfortable shoes and don't forget to keep smiling. The tour starts... More

I happened upon this tour by chance. I had no idea it would be that long (10 hours I believe) and perhaps had I known I'd have avoided it. Which would have a been a mistake. You get to you make friends with other travelers, take a lot in in a relatively short time (in a good sense) and just... More

If your time in NYC is limited, or you want to see the absolute most of NYC in a day, this is it. Jerry is super entertaining and it’s a great chance to meet other travelers. While there’s a lot of walking and sightseeing, Jerry does a great job with incorporating rest breaks in between.

Jerry's grand tour of New York City was an excellent tour, as he went thoroughly through every thing about the city and made it very interesting. However as we where departing for the tour I hapend to see a young man with toy gun in his hand and I was frightened and screamed gun and everyone went into panic. The... More

This is the only walking tour that I have done of the New York City. The tour started from Hostelling International New York, 891 Amsterdam Avenue. Please check the hostel's website for the tour schedule. Be prepared to walk for more than 12 hours in that one day of the walking tour. This is a grand tour! Please wear comfortable... More

If you want a quick introduction to New York, don't take this tour. If you're no nonsense and just want facts and history about the city, don't take this tour. If you're not happy to spend an entire day on your feet, don't take this tour (and accept that you're being put to shame by a 76 year old!). If,... More

Jerry is a character, that's for sure. But the tour was waaaay too long, mainly because of the painfully slow walking and the irrelevant rambles from Jerry. By 4pm we had only covered the Staten Island ferry (past the Statue of Liberty) and Brooklyn. I didn't find he gave much information, despite talking lots. I've been on lots of walking... More

Jerry was a lovely man, who knew his way around New York. His passion about New York shone through. It was a 13 hour tour which could have been sped up as we stopped along the way a lot to talk. I would highly recommend this tour if you have a whole day free to explore the city. However, if... More

It was the longest tour I've ever taken. Lasting 14 hours walking over 20 km. But man was it worth it! Jerry is a real character. Born and raised in New York... doing this walk for over 18 years now. If you get the chance I'd really recommend you to join him

Jerry is a great guy, but I honestly felt like I was on school trip an hour into this tour. Unfortunately the weather was extremely bad - raining all day- so this may have had a profound influence, but in saying this Jerry was just not for me. I found him to ramble a few times, talking on occasions about... More
