Visit them up close or admire them from afar; you’ve gotta see NYC’s iconic sites at least once in your lifetime.

Let’s get started


Whether it’s selfies or your DSLR, you’re used to getting sey-eye from your besties on your 100th photo. Whatever.

I want Insta-worthy sites

I’m a tour guide, ask me anything!

Hi future NYC travelers! My name is Alicia, and I’m a NYC tour guide.

I started NYC in a Day because I want to help travelers (like you!) do more, see more, and stress less. There’s so much to do in a day in New York City that sometimes every day can feel overwhelming.

My motto is: focus only on the activities you love, and drop the FOMO about the rest. While you might not be able to see all of New York in one day, I can help you make the most of your days.
