NEW YORK ADVENTURE CLUB (http://www.nyadventureclub.com)


We give you insider access to the city’s best-kept secrets. But we’re so much more than a tour company.


We are a community-driven club that curates the most unique experiences in town, with a focus on history and storytelling. We show you a city you never knew existed, and offer a community you can’t live without.

You won’t find our special-access tours and exclusive events anywhere else. Think after-hours tours of New York City’s most celebrated spaces, themed parties in unexpected locations, and weekend excursions to incredible destinations. All of our events end with social hangouts so you can meet people who love exploring as much as you do.


Our current community is more than 11,000 members strong and includes everyone from recent NYC transplants to lifelong residents. Whatever borough you’re from (or city or country, for that matter), we’ll make it easy for you to take full advantage of the unique places and great people this city has to offer.


To ensure a one-of-a-kind experience each and every time, we hand pick events and outings specifically for the New York Adventure Club community. Recent events include:

* An after-hours tour of New York City Hall

* Special access into some of New York's most coveted private social clubs, including the Explorers Club and National Arts Club

* Petting baby kangaroos, holding sloths, and feeding leopards at Staten Island Zoo

My parents, younger brothers, and I all love New York City history, and to get some parental attention I had to be historically correct and entertaining at the same time. "I love this city and all its peculiarities, and I love sharing it with newcomers, returning visitors or native New Yorkers— I'll tell you these and other fascinating things you never knew about this amazing place I call home because 'there are 8 million stories in the naked city' and I will share with you as many as possible."
