With over 50 million visitors annually, New York City is the #1 tourism destination in the US and one of the top 5 in the world. Tourists can travel independently, a difficult process, or pay expensive rates for tour guides/groups.
These options are detrimental to the environment because they either involve private vehicles or gas-guzzling buses.
Tour-De-City provides tourists with prepackaged and coordinated tours of New York’s most popular attractions and hidden gems that can be access via bike, walking, public transportation or car.
Our mission is to reduce the environmental footprint of the tourism industry, increase tourism revenue for local tourist attractions, and creating a fun, memorable experience.
This application was developed by students in Mr. Michael Zamansky’s software development class. We developed the initial implementation for our first independent class project and then prepared a beta version for the final project. Since then, we’ve added new features and de-bugged the app for its final launch at tour-de-city.com.
