Our walking tour will start in the St. George Ferry Terminal, where I will be waiting by the Information Kiosk. From there we will explore the waterfront pavilion, stop for unmatched photos of the NYC harbor. Our tour continues by going deeper into the historical St. George Neighborhood. We'll navigate the neighborhood like locals, learning the remarkable history of the area. Finally, our tour will conclude in the St. George Ferry Terminal. Throughout this tour, you'll learn the ins and outs of Staten Island from the perspective of a local. I'll share some the best kept secrets of the Island and you'll have a chance to interact with many locals along the way.
Other things to note
Comfortable shoes, there will be a lot of walking and the tour goes up and down steep hills! Bring a sense of adventure, the more you give to the neighborhood, the more you'll get back.

Highly informative, highly professional, way better than expected tour. My girlfriend and I live in NYC and like taking tours of areas we dont frequent. We did not know much about Staten Island prior to the trip but kept an open mind to seekng what the "forgotten borough" has to offer. Everything about the tour exceeded our expectations. Ben meets us promptly at the Staten Island Ferry Terminal and then goes on to provide a very informative tour including all the historical factoids you'd expect from a walking tour and other tidbits about current events and controversies in Staten Island. If you have never been to Staten Island or have a negative opinion of the borough, definitely take this tour and see what it has to offer. My girlfriend and I ended up staying longer after the tour yo get dinner in Staten Island at a place Ben recommended. It also exceeded our expectations. Thanks for the great tour Ben.

If you are on the fence about this one, trust me when I say it's worth it! Our host, Ben, was super friendly and knew a ton about the area. It felt like walking around with an old friend. Oh, and the views and murals were all so gorgeous. Def left with a new appreciation for Staten Island!

Ben was knowledgeable and gave a great tour of the area of Staten Island. He talked about the recent economic growth in the area and the 9/11 memorial was beautiful and moving. He even added personal stories when appropriate and it added a unique personal touch that I wasn’t expecting! It was an excellent experience!!

Amazing tour. Ben was easy to find at the terminal and was super friendly and knowledgeable. He really knows the area and showed us some interesting spots to eat and a cool comic book shop. Learning about the 9/11 memorial and the first responders was really touching. Overall an excellent experience.

I'm so happy I took this tour! I got off the ferry and found Ben easily in the terminal. My biggest concern was safety going into this, and I was thankful that Ben and everyone on the tour had masks and we were outside for the duration of the tour. The tour itself was really fascinating. From nearly every part of our walk, we had incredible views of Manhattan, which was great for photos. I learned a ton about not only the landmarks near the ferry, but also Staten Island as a whole. Ben is born and raised there, so he shared a first hand experience, plus was very knowledgeable on the history, too. My favorite part was the 9/11 Postcards memorial. It was breathtaking and moving, and to hear Ben's personal story alongside it was very touching. It felt like I had insight to a very "NYC-insider experience". The tour was small, only 4 of us, plus Ben, and everyone was friendly, even though we were socially distanced and in masks. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to learn more about a place that's often overlooked. It wasn't too long, and there was plenty of rec's for things to do post-tour. Grab lunch, go shopping, or keep sightseeing.
