Slava Shpigel


Hello! Call me Slava! I am happy to show my favorite New York City to English or Ukrainian speakers! I live in the States since 2008, landed in Boston first but moved to New York in 2010. My favorite neighborhoods here are East Village and Harlem and I can talk for hours about Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine. I led my first New York City tour in April 2012 and became a full time guide in 2014 which I remained through out the pandemic (did a lot of online-tours) and now enjoying the uptick of tourism again. I love showing people around!

I offer private tours to individuals, families and groups of most sizes: 1 to 20 people. Walking tours, subway, car transportation, I have routes for everything and am ready to customize them to customers' preferences.

My repertoire includes but not limited to highlights tours of Manhattan and Brooklyn, walking tours of Central Park, Greenwich Village, Financial and Civic districts, one-day tours to Philadelphia, Washington, Long Island. I also do highlights tours of these museums: Metropolitan, Intrepid Aircraft Carrier and American Museum of Natural History. We can do an informative cruise around Manhattan, go to the Statue of Liberty, get to one of 5 observation decks New York offers, even have a flight on a helicopter!
