Highlights
  • Explore the historic streets of Lower Manhattan on this guided walking tour
  • Experience the commingling of diverse cultures in Little Italy and Chinatown
  • Stroll the Cast Iron Historic District in SoHo, and see historic buildings
  • Meet-up in Spring Street Park, steps from the Spring Street subway stop
What to expect
  • Meet the tour guide and group in SoHo to begin this walking tour of three of New York City’s most interesting neighborhoods—SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown. Walking toward Greene Street, see the site of the Manhattan Well Murder, the first recorded homicide case in New York City and the first murder trial in American history to be fully documented by a court stenographer. This well is currently in the basement of the Manhattan Bistro restaurant. Needless to say, there are a lot of requests to see the basement here. Much of SoHo includes the Cast Iron Historic District, which consists of 26 blocks and approximately 500 buildings, many incorporating cast-iron architectural elements. Look out for celebrities in this area as SoHo is a favorite spot for movie stars and models. In Little Italy, listen to stories about mobsters like John Gotti, plus the troubles Italian immigrants faced when they first arrived here. The name Little Italy doesn’t really apply today. It was once known for its large population of Italians, but the neighborhood only has a few Italian stores and restaurants remaining now. Just a few blocks away is Chinatown, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Manhattan and home to one of the largest concentrations of Chinese people in the Western Hemisphere. Chinatown provides a fascinating cultural experience. Finally, visit the site of Five Points, a spot that gained international notoriety as a disease-ridden, crime-infested slum in the 1800s, before you end the tour in Columbus Park. Get a chance to sample some of the local foods in these historic neighborhoods.

Get Maya as your guide!
Nov 2021
Sometimes NYC is overwhelming and then you end up walking around for hours and eating nuts from a cart for lunch. This tour was exceptional made that way by our guide Maya. She was spectacular. Humorous, informative, fun, and caring. And just darn cute! Her personal stories blended in with the actual history that was interesting and informative was so perfect. For 35 bucks, you can't have a better walking tour of three fascinating areas of NYC!

This is our second visit of NYC and after checking out all the “instagrammable” attractions on our first trip, we wanted to have a more in-depth look of NYC on this one. James was our tour guide and he was amazing! He was so engaging, I actually didn’t notice that we have been walking that long until the time was up. Highly recommended!

Great Walking Tour!
Oct 2021
Jenn Andres was an awesome tour guide when we visited NYC and did the walking tour of SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown. She had lots of great stories about the area and the history and was also able to keep it current with her perspectives as a local NYer. Also loved how she was able to give us out of towners a heads up about the best way to not get run over by traffic or pedestrians while walking around town! I would definitely recommend taking this tour for a fun view of SoHo, Little Italy, and Chinatown.

Great Walking Tour!

Maya was a fantastic guide! We had a great time and learned a LOT about the history of these areas. Maya really knows her stuff! She was friendly, personable and took really good care of us. She is a wealth of knowledge. We stopped in Little Italy for a snack/rest break. Highly recommend Cannoli King! Hot drinks and delicious cannoli!!! Maya had great recommendations for restaurants for us to come back to and told us lots of stories about things that had happened in each of these neighborhoods.
