Tours In-Person & Online

Our unique tours of New York City are back! Over the coming weeks, we are rolling out our in-person guided tours with our health and safety measures. We will continue to offer our virtual experiences that highlight our tours, research, and partners. We are talking with makers, street vendors, and museum staff, showing artifacts and materials from our archives, and sharing stories and research that don’t always make it into our tours. And our membership program offers access and benefits to both in-person and virtual programs.

Guided Tours


Explore How New York City Works

Turnstile Tours are built around in-depth research, community engagement, and interactive experiences. We offer both public and private tours that showcase how New York City works, from factories to food systems, the working waterfront to workforce development. With our unique expertise, we deliver high-quality tours that appeal to both locals and first-time visitors. Whether you’re interested in Manhattan’s street vendors, beautiful public parks, Brooklyn’s techies, makers, and manufacturers, or the city’s rich industrial history, we have tours to suit your interests

Our Partners

Our tours are built around close partnerships with non-profit and community organizations. As a social enterprise and Certified B Corporation, we are committed to helping our partners build capacity to welcome the public and raise money for their vital missions. At least 5% of every ticket purchased goes towards one of these organizations.
