Additional Tour Info
How strenuous is this walk? This walk covers about 3.5 miles on foot in about 3.5 hours. The terrain is flat, and we’ll get to take a break in McSorley’s Old Ale House. However, we 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 death, crime, and drugs. That said, there are 2 “child” tickets available for each public tour for children aged 12 and under.
Meeting Point: Detailed meeting point instructions will be emailed to you once your reservation has been processed. The tour starts near Astor Place in Lower Manhattan and ends in SoHo near Broadway and Broome Street.
