In celebration of National Walking Day on Wed., April 2nd, Walks of New York is offering a week of FREE guided walking tours in NYC. The freebie offer also is to introduce their new small-group walks, limited to twelve people.
We stretched the definition of free just a bit, since a $5 donation is required, all of which goes to the American Heart Association to support its National Walking Day campaign and their ongoing efforts to promote good heart health, including by taking long walks.
Tour offerings include behind-the-scenes access to top NYC theaters and museums, plus “skip the line” access to popular destinations such as the Empire State Building Observation deck. Even if you are a native New Yorker – as I am – this is a great opportunity to see your hometown like a visitor, and learn something you didn’t know before.
Sign up at Walks of New York for one of the free walking tours. After the introductory week, prices will range from $35 to $59 for adults, with discounts for seniors, students and kids. The walks are 2 1/2 hours.
Walks of New York is a brand extension of Walks of Italy, the well-known European tour experience started in 2009 that also helps visitors avoid long lines and gain special access to popular sites including the Vatican and Colosseum.
Free walking tours – what a great way to enjoy NYC on the Cheap
