We are New York City's Original Street Art Walking Tour Company
Why are you called "Saddleshoe" tours? We get that question a lot… Here's the answer: our street art tours are about discovery, walking and learning. Saddle shoes are our walking shoe of choice and our guides rock them with bright colored laces. We think we’re too cool to walk the streets of New York holding an umbrella in the air. If you fall behind on one of our tours, look down and scan the shoes and you’re sure to spot us! Saddle shoes are also reminiscent of being in elementary school, learning and exploring. We do a lot of that. We bring discovery to novices while delighting street art enthusiasts with stories about the works and artists behind them. Our tours are designed for New Yorker's and tourists alike. Locals tend to walk away with a new perspective on their hometown. Tourists often say that our tours were the best part of their trip to the city.
