Tours

New York City’s original walking tour program

Please note — In light of the coronavirus pandemic, MAS has suspended in-person public programming, at least through May 15. Please check back for updates on future gatherings. In the meantime, we hope you will join us in giving thanks to all the New Yorkers working to help one another and keep our beloved city running in these unsettling times.

If you have purchased a ticket to an event or tour that has been canceled or postponed, a refund will be issued back to your original payment method. You do not need to contact us to receive this refund.

Led by expert guides with deep knowledge of New York City architecture, art, urban history, preservation, neighborhoods and street life, the MAS Tours Program has been bringing eyes on the street since 1956. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts. 

Duration: Tours last about two hours.

Weather: With rare exception, all tours proceed rain or shine, and all sales are final.

Refunds/Exchanges: There are no refunds, cancellations, or exchanges, unless we cancel a tour.
