Big Onion Walking Tours
Since 1991, the award-winning Big Onion Walking Tours has been offering guided tours through New York’s ethnic neighborhoods and historic districts. Led mostly by full-time graduate students studying history, the informative tours usually last for about two hours and cover areas like Central Park, Chinatown, Greenwich Village and Times Square. More unique options include a tour of New York during Prohibition, a gay and lesbian history tour and an "official" gangs of New York tour. Visitors are welcome to just show up for any tour except the multi-ethnic eating tour, which requires reservations.
