A walking tour created for New Yorkers who are looking to do a little sightseeing, but don’t want to hang with tourists. Created by locals, for locals.

Sidewalk Sherpas is a full tour experience told in a story format. We start each tour off by telling you the story of how the neighborhood first began. Then we guide you through the streets as we weave each of the stops into the story for you. By the end of the tour, you’ll really feel like you know the neighborhood.

Grab your headphones and get ready to guide yourself around with complete flexibility. Go whenever. Skip whatever. Take breaks. Walk as fast or slow as you want. Finally, theres’s a walking tour for city people.

This is the walking tour, reinvented. This is the walking tour made awesome.
