The next time you visit New York, why not join one of Context Travel's Guided Walking Tours. What Context offers is an in-depth alternative to traditional tours. One of the features that distinguishes them from the others is that their guides or docents who lead the walking tours are experts in their field. They are architects, historians, art historians, and specialists who have in-depth knowledge of the places they lead their visitors and a tour with them is something like a walking seminar for intellectually curious travelers be it a museum, the market or to the trendiest spots in the city. New York walking tours is just one of over 300 different walks in 12 cities around the world.
The other feature that distinguishes Context is their small groups of no more than 6. You have a choice of joining a group walk which is priced on per person basis, or requesting for a private walk which is at a flat rate. A private walk package is economical for five or more people or for families and is customizable.
Context is consistently lauded in travel publications, guide books, and by their customers for their innovative approach to travel. Like what Forbes Traveller wrote, "There's no substitute for the impromptu interaction with a knowledgeable and personable guide; best of all, one with a Ph.D. in the topic!”
So, the next time you go to New York, go for Context's NYC walking tour for a more enjoyable tour of this bustling city.
