The Story behind the name Xeniwalk

Xenia is the ancient Greek concept of hospitality, the generosity and courtesy shown to those who are far from home. You probably know the opposite as xenophobia. It is from this idea of hospitality that Xeniapp (our sister site) and Xeniwalk were born.

What is Xeniapp?

Xeniapp is our sister site where you can book hotels, flights, car rentals and see unique trip packages. Xeniapp allows you to either choose a package created by a travel agent or create your own itinerary by simply dragging and dropping the pieces you need.

What is Xeniwalk?

We love walking tours and want to showcase the wonderful array of walking tours in New York City. Whether exploring a new city or discovering new parts of your own city, walking tours are a fun and unique way to get to know a place. With hundreds of tours available in any given city, the hardest part is deciding which one is right for you. Xeniwalk aims to provide a comprehensive list of walking tours that are easily searchable by neighborhood and topic. Our platform for walking tours is designed to allow tourists and locals to find and book walking tours and to allow tour guides to list tours for booking.

In putting together Xeniwalk, we have discovered the incredible array of walking tours that exist in New York City. From the “Little Italy and Chinatown Gangsters Walking Tour” to the “Athens Next Door Greek Food Tour” in Astoria there are so many ways to experience New York City. Having a knowledgeable guide to show you the details you would otherwise miss helps you to more fully experience the city.

We want to hear from you! Are there tours you want to see listed? Want to list a tour you give? See something that is wrong? Contact us at
