We'll start in one of the oldest New York bars which was a speakeasy during Prohibition (and where the most touching Christmas tale ever penned was written over a century ago.) We'll talk Prohibition, brilliant writers and many other New York stories.

We'll take a walk along the path not usually visited by tourists where we'll see a private park and facades of private clubs, we'll get to a vantage point from which we'll be able to see some of New York's most fascinating buildings. I’ll share some of my favorite New York tales filled with daring, ambition, movie characters, love, murder, Prohibition, and ladies' skirts.

We'll continue our journey in one of the city's most elegant Prohibition-style parlors where exquisite whiskey cocktail and sounds of live jazz will make you feel like a Great Gatsby.

This is a small group experience. I'd like to make sure you don't feel like a tourist on a tour, but more like a local enjoying the atmosphere, drinks, music, the walk and, of course, the conversation.

As a bonus, I'll leave you with recommendations on the city's best speakeasies where perfect cocktail meets NYC history!

Like most true citizens of this fantastic city I wasn't born here. For that matter, I wasn't even born in the United States ! But hey, about a third of New Yorkers weren't born here either. I fell in love with New York the moment I set foot here - it's been over 20 years now. My fascination with New York's streets, buildings, people and stories made me become a NYC tour guide. What I love about New York is its unique energy, its ever changing streetscape and its absolutely fascinating and inexhaustible history. I hope to share it with you! Full profile Leave a Review
