New York City Tour Guide

I’m Esther Roth

a Swiss-American licensed New York City Tour Guide who has been giving tours for over 25 years in German, Swiss-German, and English for local, American, international tour operators and travel companies, as well as for private requests.

In Switzerland, I studied fashion and acting, then went on to become the host of an weekly opera radio show in Italy. I enjoyed connecting with people through music and my passion for opera brought me to New York in 1990, where I fell in love with the city and went back to school for a BA in International Studies and History.

I adore the vibrant performing arts scene in New York and diversity of cultures. There is always something happening here, whether it’s also museums, architecture, concerts, theater, great food, shopping, or street art.

Every neighborhood has something different to offer, like Brooklyn, Queens, Harlem, or Bronx— did you know that the Latin dance style Salsa was born in the Bronx?

New York is like a kaleidoscope, constantly changing. With much enthusiasm, I always researching and discovering new things, trends and insider information to share.
