Hello! My name is Russell and I lead walking tours in NYC. As a born and raised New Yorker, I started The Native NYC Tour because I wanted to share my love and knowledge of NYC that only a local would know. I wish to provide personal experiences for you to feel what it's like to be in New York City with somebody who actually grew up in the city! 

I offer all kinds of walking tours of the city. From Central Park, sightseeing, food and can even cater to any specific places that you want to see. I also have experience leading other tours around NYC as a contractor for tour companies. 

I have a valid NYC Sightseeing Guide License from the City of New York. I am also a proud member of the Guides Association of New York City (GANYC), the professional association of licensed tour guides in NYC. Our tours include random historical facts and personal connections from my life in the city.

Outside of tour guiding, I am a big sports fan (life long Mets, Knicks, Jets and Rangers fan). I enjoy going to concerts, photography, exploring places to eat and I bartend at a few locations in NYC.

I offer both public and private tours. Please refer to our FAQ for pricing and other common questions.
