What is a Walkabout?

A portrait of Susan Birnbaum with her trademark red hair.
A walkabout is a term coined by Susan meaning a walking tour, but this isn't just any walking tour. All of Susan's tours are walking tours. During these tours you will walk from location to location, and at times take the subway. During this time you will experience the neighborhood just as a local would.  Whether you are exploring the markets of Anthony Street in the Bronx, or wandering the gilded streets of the East Side; step by step Susan will entertain, teach and explore.

SusanSez Five Star Review
Susan Birnbaum, hosted a tour for me and a small group of friends and colleagues yesterday. We toured the Mott Haven section of the Bronx and had a marvelous time! Susan was knowledgeable, personable, funny, and just plain awesome. I plan to book tours with her on a regular basis. This was a great way to learn the history of my borough!
