A private tour with WeVenture NYC is always a completely custom itinerary, created just for you and your group! A private city walking tour of New York City can be from 2 hours – 8 hours, depending on the destination. While many visitors to New York have specific sites they would like to see, many are happy to let our team create a custom itinerary that fits their interests, budget, mobility, and timeline. Typically, tours spend most of their time in and around the five boroughs of New York City, but we welcome any ideas for your dream tour.

No two groups are alike and we will plan a trip tailored to your group’s interests, budget, and needs. Below are some sample itineraries to use as inspiration for your perfect tour:

Highlights Tour: The neighborhood of Greenwich Village has long been associated with the 1960s counterculture movement and historically has been a haven for artists, writers, musicians, and actors. On this 2-3–hour private walking tour, we’ll introduce you to the best of the neighborhood’s beatnik past and more.

We’ll take you back to the era of American bohemia, visiting Washington Square Park and nearby hangouts where the greats like Bob Dylan performed and practiced during their time in the city. 

Nearby, we’ll spot some historic buildings belonging to New York University as well as some quieter streets used for filming locations. 

Half-Day Tour: Spend 4-5 hours with us to really experience Greenwich Village and its unbeatable food scene. 

Your guide will introduce some favorite West Village foods including NY-style pizza, bagels with a secret ingredient, and decadent cupcakes. We’ll even get a chance to see the oldest cappuccino place in America!

As we nosh on our New York finds, we’ll pass by venues where comedians like Chris Rock and Ray Romano got started and learn more about the Revolutionary history of the area.

Full-Day Tour: A full-day tour up to 8 hours will include all the trappings of our Highlights and Half-Day options, with an opportunity to add in some stops at West Village’s live music venues. 

Choose your own libation or let your guide select a Prohibition-era cocktail to enjoy as you listen to local artists perform anything from jazz numbers to folk tunes.

From here, continue your bar crawl in the Village or strike out into another part of the city for more exploring!
