Small Journeys Inc. began as a student tour company and our knowledge of the special type of service required for students is one of the reasons for our success and longevity. Our company has built a reputation over the years on personal service, reliability and complete customer satisfaction. Based on years of reliability, Frommer’s New York City with Kids guidebook has recommended our tour service for their readers for more than 10 years.

Guided museum tours can be arranged either through the museum’s education department or one of our  experienced guides can offer a customized museum tour.
