Big Onion Walking Tours

Rating: 4.5/5 ZOZI RATING

One of the oldest and most-loved cities in America wasn't always as delicious to live in. In fact, the nickname "Big Apple" originated with the horse races and had nothing to do with the popularity of the city. That's why Big Onion Tours have become almost synonymous with New York since they first appeared in 1991. Peeling away the layers of hype and history, they take tourists on more than 30 tours throughout the city's neighborhoods. Each tour features graduate student guides and a reputation for irreverent tours filled with historical information.

The tours run throughout the year and incorporate major and minor city events into both regular and holiday tours. Among the various walks offered by Big Apple Tours are historical walks of various neighborhoods, ethnic eating walks, gay and lesbian history, prohibition, the labor movement, and many other tours designed to educate and entertain. While off-duty, guides are often caught researching the history of New York, keeping these walks fresh and fun for both residents and visitors alike.
