Guests Love This Tour!
Brilliant tour by a scholar and storyteller! Our guide, Mandy Edgecombe, is a scholar in New Amsterdam! Additionally, she was a good story teller and brought New Amsterdam to life showing how the original settlers way of life still influences Manhattan culture and mindset.
Also, Mandy took into consideration weather, ducking us in and out of secret hiding spots to make sure we were comfortable the entire time. What a treat!
I highly recommend!amberc2981/19/2021

With New York City’s first map in hand you will trace the streets of Manhattan in 1667 while discovering the many hidden Dutch relics south of Wall Street. Physically touch history as you spend time finding out how Bowling Green got its name and why it’s been so important in our city’s history! Among the many relics you will experience on this tour are the foundations of New York City’s first City Hall (which was also a tavern!), the long forgotten oyster pasty cannon, the original battery wall and so much more! This New Amsterdam tour is led by an expert guide from the Untapped New York team.
