NYC visit with son
Peter was a great guide. He was personable and knowledgeable. Our college age son didn’t want a long tour and this 90 minute wall street tour was perfect. We learned a lot. Recommend this tour!

Engaging tour guide with a wide range of knowledge
Jared was our tour guide and he did a great job. Remembered everyone's name and asked lots of questions to keep us all involved. Tour includes overview of financial district and Wall Street, and quite a bit of US history. Jared really knows his topics and presents them in an interesting and engaging way. Well worth the price of the tour!

Meeting point

We’ll meet at the front entrance at 15 Broad Street. Don’t go inside the building as this is just our meeting point. Your guide will be out front.

FAQs

Do we go inside any buildings, such as the NYSE?

This tour is mostly an outdoor walking tour with a chance to visit inside a few buildings. The New York Stock Exchange has been closed to visitors since 2001.

How much walking is there?

We cover about 1 mile at a leisurely pace, and the walking route is fairly level.

Do we need to understand finance to enjoy this tour?

We find those who appreciate finance and current events enjoy this tour even more. However, this tour is designed with a general audience in mind, and it’s great for families as well. You don’t need to have a financial background to have fun and learn on this tour. Questions are encouraged!

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine, so please check the local forecast to plan. In rare cases when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or give a full refund.

What about gratuities?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
