Who We Are New York City - Manhattan Walking Tour NYC

Garry Zafrani, Founder

I’m a New Yorker – born and raised.
My Dad owned a small film & photo store in Times Square in the ‘60s. I began helping New York City visitors make the most of their visit at age 9.

During my teenage years, growing up in Brooklyn, my first jobs were on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, where I learned about ethnic food, and that love of diverse cooking styles and tastes continues today.

As an adult, I have worked in the hotel industry for 15 years helping tourists plan their sightseeing tours, and now I accompany them on these tours and share the joy of discovering the many sights, tastes and complex history that this city has to offer.

As a professional actor, she brings to life the dramatic history that is only found in NYC's unique neighborhoods. You can find her exploring New York on any given day with a big smile on her face.

Alex Drywa
, Tour Guide

Being a third generation New Yorker, you would think Alex knows everything he needs to know about this city.  WRONG!  After traveling and living abroad in Europe and Australia for 4 years, he came back on a mission to learn about everything he always took for granted.  Every week he checks something new off his list of things he never did growing up in New York City, constantly learning new facts to share along the way.  He had so much fun teaching visiting friends around New York, that he decided to become a licensed guide to share his knowledge with to a broader audience.  Within minutes you will feel like you have known Alex forever, that's how comfortable he makes people who take tours with him.  He loves craft beer and dancing, so whether you need a good beer bar or nightclub, this is the guy to ask.
