What you'll do

Planning a trip to New York City, or just dreaming about visiting one day? Then let’s chat.

On this experience I will answer all your questions about New York - from food and drink recommendations to neighborhoods, and everything in between.

As one of the first Airbnb Experience Hosts in the world (now with 1200+ 5 star reviews), and a traveler at heart (50 countries and counting!) I know you are searching this platform because you want to enjoy the city like a local does, not as a “tourist” would. That's where I can help!

First, we’ll chat about how to make the best choices for your time in New York. Is it pizza and bagels, or rooftop cocktails? Visiting museums and art galleries, or riding bikes in Central Park? Chasing history or people watching?

Next I will share my local recommendations, hidden gems and NYC secrets that best suit your interests. And finally, we’ll talk the basics of NYC – where to stay, public transport, tipping rules etc.

No matter what type of trip you are planning – family vacations, weekend getaways, girls/boys trips or solo adventures - this is your opportunity to become a real New Yorker.

If you want a 1-on-1 customized itinerary, please book a private class, otherwise during a group session we can speak at a more general level about NYC (and still answer your questions!).

As a pioneer Airbnb Experience Host in New York, I have created and led many successful NYC food and drink experiences over the past few years, hosting over 8,500+ guests on my experiences "A Sandwich Masterclass", "A Sandwich Feast", and "Pour One out for NYC".

As a passionate traveler, I’ve searched the globe for the world's best food and drink—the best sandwiches in particular. Documenting my adventures along the way, I have published articles, recorded podcasts, and spoken on panels all about the topic of the sandwich. Check out @a_man_and_his_sandwich on Instagram!

New York has been my home for five years now, and I am passionate about showing off my home to others who want to come here. This is why I became a licensed NYC guide.

So pack your bags and join me, as the song says, in the "concrete jungle where dreams are made of.

Planning the Perfect Trip with Ben was fantastic and exceeded expectations. As an avid and experienced traveler, I found Ben's overview and experiential advice incredibly helpful in navigating a new city. I appreciate that he included up-to-date info on the COVID regulatory environment, and captured the essence of what makes a successful and enjoyable trip in a new place! At the end of the general presentation, I was able to ask some specific questions that Ben graciously and expertly answered. Would highly recommend for anyone traveling to NYC for the first time, or even folks who have been before but are looking for advice on something new. Plan on booking a follow-up for my next trip to NYC. Don't miss out!

Ben was awesome! This was my first time having an online host like this and it definitely exceeded my expectations. The value was incredible and Ben was so friendly and answered all of our questions. I will not be planning another trip without meeting with someone like this beforehand.
