ABOUT US

Who we are

OUR STORY

A group of curious creatives who have made New York their home. We are urban explorers, entrepreneurs, social activists, creators, artists and journalists. And we’re all really nice, too.

Come with us to see how the city works, who lives where and why. Understand and decode the complex relations between architecture, design, public space and people.

Discover unknown stories, such as the story of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the second largest in the world! Learn about New York’s lively art scene, follow in the footsteps of the city’s founders, or get to know New York’s iconic street art and graffiti. You can join one of our prepared routes or contact us for a tailor made urban tour.

OUR MINDSET

City Adventures are FOR EVERYONE

Most of our tours range from 1.5 to 2 hours. Based on your personal interest (or just trust us on this one) we can recommend combined routes.

We take it slow and easy – our tours are for walking and we welcome all ages. The only requirement is your curiosity.

here we are!
