    Birthplace of New York Tour

    It’s quite shocking, really. The very place where Wall Street brokers now ply their trade was once a place of business for pirates and prostitutes! Despite its current status as one of the cultural epicenters of the world, New York certainly has its dubious origins. This tour takes you on a deep dive into city’s history, way back to when it was called New Amsterdam. You’ll walk the streets from Battery Park to Wall Street, exploring the area with a knowledgeable guide, who will help you to imagine it as was in the 17th-century. You’ll even end the tour in true 17th century Dutch fashion- in a tavern on Stone Street, where you’ll partake in some local food and drink!
