The Big Apple History Tour

A historical walking tour
The Big Apple History Tour

Since 1991, the Big Apple tours have taken tourists on tours that will take you to some of New York’s ethnic and historical neighborhoods. You will experience a comprehensive and thought-provoking walk that will teach you a lot about this city’s origin.

Each tour is deeply researched and based on factual information. They have a large variety offering over 30 tours in 20 different NYC neighborhoods. Some of their tours include a walk through historical Harlem, the art, sex and rock and roll tour, Chelsea and the Highline tour and many more.

Their guides are full-time graduate students that are researching and writing doctoral dissertations in history.

The company has also published two books if you prefer to experience the NYc history on your own time.
