Shopping & Dining

Each and every corner has its own unique restaurants and shops - we list the most famous and best for you.

You could Google your entire trip, but you’d be missing a lot of important information that only a local would know like:

  • Which neighborhoods are safe to walk through...and which ones aren’t,
  • How to maximize your vacation budget -- NYC isn’t cheap and you’ll want to spend your money where it really counts,
  • The best modes of transportation to get to your destination (there are in fact 6 other ways to see the Statue of Liberty in addition to the 5-hour ferry everyone believes is the only way),
  • And so much more.
Or you could go to TripAdvisor, but you’ll spend a lot of time combing through reviews, trying to figure out which ones are legitimate and which ones are just pointing you towards tourist traps.
You might even purchase a New York tourist pass for a few hundred dollars, but you’ll end up scrambling to make the most of that investment, running around like a chicken with your head cut off trying to see all the sights...without understanding which ones are worth your time and which ones should be skipped.

Frequently Asked Questions

In addition to the written guide, you’ll also be getting videos showing you EXACTLY how to do very specific, important things...like buying a Metro Card. Plus, we help you weigh all the options available to you (like places to eat breakfast based on your budget), so you can make the choice that’s right for the way YOU want to see NYC. Moreover, we help you avoid duplicate and similar activities (like picking the best of the 4 observation decks that exist in the city).

Yes, you can, of course, do plenty of planning online for free. However, you’ll spend hours putting together your trip plan. Our guide is concise -- giving you everything you need to know without making you read too much. Plus, frequently the common articles and blogs you’ll find online are written by someone with very little experience of the city. The truth of the matter is, many people visit NYC once or twice and after, write a blog post about the “10 Best Places to Visit In NYC” -- this doesn’t make them an expert on the area. Our itineraries are backed by 12 years of experience in this industry, working with over 100,000 individuals and 3,000 groups visiting New York City.

If you’re someone who loves the planning process, our recommendation is that you use our guide to plan the foundation of your trip. That way, you can spend the bulk of your planning time digging for other activities that are very specific to your interests that we might not mention in our guide. (Like visiting where a particular movie star lives or hangs out or getting a reservation at the newest celebrity chef restaurant.)

Yes, it’s actually the safest city in the US. However, there are certain areas where you have to be careful.

Our guides show you where to splurge and where to save...allowing you to plan ahead of time how to make the most of your vacation budget. We also highlight all the hidden costs in New York City that tourists don’t realize exist, so you can include them in your budget in advance.

Yes! We include many hotel options, detailing which neighborhoods and hotels are best for different needs (kid-friendly, within walking distance of sights, etc.)
