April Travel Massive: #TakeWalks with Walks of New York + Tour

  • Apr 23, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We’re celebrating the start of Spring with the official launch party for Walks of New York, the newest brand from the creators of successful sightseeing tour operator Walks of Italy. Surrounded by a panoramic view of Times Square from a rooftop (also featured on one of their tours), you’ll mix and mingle with some of New York’s top travel industry movers and shakers. See below for the information on the pre-event preview tours!

Co-Founders Jason Spiehler and Stephen Oddo

Jason and Stephen will be there to answer questions about their New York and Italy businesses, discuss some exciting new developments with the brand, as well as talk about the core initiatives behind Walks as a whole. 

There will be prizes including transferrable vouchers for their tours, goodies from New York and Italy, and, of course the usual 2 hour open bar of beer, wine and sodas. 


Please join us for an exclusive abbreviated preview of the Walks of New York newest tour: Broadway Behind the Curtains. On this special tour of Broadway, you’ll see what’s behind the curtain in the world of Broadway Theater through stories of its most famous dramas. The group is led by a Broadway insider sharing first-hand experiences of life in the theater. And, of course, there will be plenty of lively tales of Broadway lore; its stars, superstitions, ghosts, greatest hits… and infamous flops.

Tours meet at 6pm in Times Square directly behind the statue of George M. Cohan at 46th and Broadway, one block south of the TKTS booth. The tour will end at the entrance of Novotel Times Square, at the start time of the Travel Massive.  Space is limited.  RSVP to [masked] and please include your cell phone number.

Due to the special nature of this event, we want to make sure we have a full roster for our local Walks of New York hosts so if you RSVP and cannot attend, please change your status so others can participate. Thank you.

More about Walks of New York

Walks of New York is the newest small group sightseeing tour and activities company in New York City. Launched in April 2014 with initial tours of the city from the High Line to the Lower East Side, the tours include themes ranging from architecture and design to history and photography. In addition to limiting groups to 12 people or fewer, Walks of New York features expert tour guides. Many hold advanced degrees in art, archaeology and history, while others have had professional careers as art restorers, actors, theatre managers, photographers, or are longtime residents of the city with a passion and background in a specific area.

Committed to providing tours with exclusive experiences and “skip the line” access, Walks of New York will feature tours that include a collaboration with B&H Photo, express entrance passes to the Empire State Building, and special access to the Eldridge Street Synagogue on the Lower East Side, a quintessential piece of New York history.

    Some very unexpected last-minute issue at work so I won't be able to join you. Was hoping for the last moment fix, but alas. I know there are a lot of folks wait-listed and so sorry about that. Have fun everybody.

    Hi Travel Massive!

    I'm currently in the NYC area looking for travelers and their stories for the second season of our show, "Bad Trip". The show just completed it's first season in Canada and has been picked up for a second season. It will be airing in the US early next year. You can get an idea of what the show is about here:

    I'm looking for anyone who might have a story to tell and who would like to be featured telling it on national television.

    Would you or any of your contacts be interested in being in the show? I can be reached via email at [masked] or by phone while in the US at[masked]-4005.

    I'm only in town for about 1 week finding people for the show, so time is of the essence.

    Thank you!

    Well this is definitely interesting. I lead a NYC subway art crawl and I'm coming up with other fun "non traditional" tours for NYers and tourists.
