That’s where a great walking tour guide comes in handy. And one of the best is Garry Zafrani, founder of Manhattan Walking Tour. A native of Brooklyn, the 60-something Zafrani grew up in New York City and loves every inch of it. That’s why he decided to share his love of his hometown on foot. And that’s why he heads out on a daily basis with a small group of visitors to share the joy of discovering the many sights, sounds, tastes and complex history New York has to offer. CityPASS had a chance to visit with Garry, a man who can really talk the walk when it comes to the Big Apple. read more »

Get a Real Feel for the City on Your Next Trip

Have you ever visited a big city and wondered what it would be like to live there? Being a tourist is a blast, and sure, hotels can be nice, but they do lack some of the comforts of a home – your own gourmet kitchen, private patios, board games and books, toys for the kids, and unique neighborhoods, to name a few.
