Reviews

There are a lot of interesting things that you would never find out about unless you had a knowledgeable guide... His background as a trader allowed him to give an informed and thorough account of Wall Street culture, attitude, and lifestyle.

Neil, London

We learned so much from Jon White. Not just the history, but the real boots-on-the-ground view of the world of investment. Jon gave us a clear understanding of the financial meltdown and how to avoid the noise of financial information and get to the real indicators.

Tommy, New York

I was seriously impressed with George's knowledge and his ability to convey it to a mixed group. It is one thing to wander around the buildings in the Wall Street area without knowing what goes on there but quite another to walk around with George and hear about the inside story.

More about this tour

The Wall Street Insider Tour is a less intensive version of the Financial Crisis Tour and designed for a general audience. We dig into New York’s history and share how the city became the global financial leader it is today. You’ll feel the lingering scars of New York’s first tragic terrorist attack and hear how a well-intentioned cleanup allowed the criminals to escape detection for over a century.

What makes our tours different? They’re the only tours created and guided by Wall Street insiders. Our guides have managed billion-dollar trading businesses and worked at some of the top firms in NYC’s Financial District.

This is why Oliver Stone filmed us for the Wall Street 2 movie and why leading financial and educational institutions (Bank of America, Credit Suisse, MF Global, UPenn, and Columbia, to name a few) have chosen us for their group events.

We’re excited to welcome you to Wall Street. Bring your camera and your questions! We can promise you an in-depth, interactive experience here in the Financial District.
