Private Walking Tour of Hoboken, Only Half a Mile from Manhattan!
Join me on a private walking tour of Hoboken, a charming waterfront city only half-a-mile (0,8km) west of Manhattan, across the Hudson River. (Look it up on Google Maps!)
Hoboken is an oft-overlooked gem whose skyline views, riverfront parks, industrial past, immigrant influences, brownstones, cafes, shops and food offer a unique look at local life and history.
Accessible from Manhattan via ferry (5-10 mins), train (10-15 mins) or Uber/Lyft. Choose “Meet in Hoboken” or “Meet in Manhattan” when booking. Contact us to determine the best option for your group.
Step away from New York City’s tourist crowds — feel like you’re visiting a friend — leave with a better understanding of local life!
