The map of NYC with all the tours shows you the location of 18 self-guided tours to walk in New York City on and off the beaten path.

Before making your choice, see the descriptions below and to know more about the different parts of the city, go to the About New York page.

Each trek is about 3 to 4 miles and can take you from 2 to 5 hours to complete depending on what you decide to do along the way.

They are all accessible by public transportation and can be used on your smartphone.

Don’t hesitate to combine, simplify or modify them. If the path is temporarily blocked, or the place to visit is closed that day, that’s what happens in a city. You’ll surely find your way around these inconveniences, but send me a note so I can modify the description for the next users.
