Tours

New York City’s original walking tour program

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.
