Rich Garr and Megan Patrick began GSW in 2008. After lots of experimenting and refining, we're still rolling.

Gotham SideWalks provides exciting and affordable activities for both locals and visitors. Family, friends, colleagues, and students will enjoy learning about history through real interaction with the art and architecture of the City and its people. Tours can act as a unique supplement to books, clubs, fundraisers, mission statements, or corporate goals; and as a refreshing alternative to traditional museums, movies, and theater. And whether we're walking or biking, you'll always get excercise. These are not bus tours!

Walking Tours are typically $30 per person and 2 hours, and Bike Tours $40 and 3 hours. Times and prices are sometimes flexible, especially when booking for school groups or nonprofit outings. Excellent GROUP RATES are available upon request. Discounts for public tours are often announced through Twitter, Facebook, E-newsletter, and through our community partners.
