Additional Tour Info
How strenuous is this walk? This walk covers about 3 miles on foot in a little over 3 hours. You will be on your feet most of the time. The terrain is flat, with the exception of some stairs to climb at the Library. We do try to maintain a steady walking pace to cover all the areas of interest. So if you think you might find it difficult to keep up at a moderate walking speed with the rest of the group, please consider a private tour with us, which can be tailored to suit your pace and fitness level.
What About Kids? Our public tours may not be appropriate for young children, as they involve a lot of walking and cover topics geared to adults. Further, some of our tours reference adult content some parents may deem inappropriate for children. On this particular tour, references may be made to sex, crime, and drugs. That said, there are 2 “child” tickets available for each public tour for children aged 12 and under.
Meeting Point: Tour starts near Grand Central and ends near Rockefeller Center (ideal for visiting Top of the Rock or Museum of Modern Art after the tour). The exact meeting point will be emailed to you once your reservation has been processed.
Stops: There will be at least 1 restroom break during our walk. Each participant will also be offered a complimentary bottle of water on the walk and a small snack along the way. A meal prior to the tour is recommended.
Are gratuities included? Guide gratuities are not included in the tour price, so if you enjoy your tour, tips are very much appreciated.
