About SteadyJoy

Welcome to New York City

Who Is SteadyJoy?

We are the experts in customized group tours and outings in New York City.

Since 1997, SteadyJoy has designed, led, directed, planned and hosted tours and events in New York City (and Chicago, Boston, DC area and Philadelphia).

The company name "SteadyJoy" was derived from the phrase "I will live in a steady joy."

The phrase comes from a poem by Donald Hall in his poetry book The Happy Man and his poem "Mr. Wakeville on Interstate 90." In 2006, Donald Hall was named Poet Laureate of the USA.

We Are Passionate About NYC

Our passions are New York City and its entertainment, arts, dining, theatre, live events, tours, sightseeing, travel and anything associated with having a good time, enjoying the Big Apple.

On all SteadyJoy guided or self-guided tours and at our special events, you and your group will come to love the sights, sounds, events, activities and even the smells and the pace of New York City as much as we do.

Best Deal
Best Deal in NYC

Your entire trip includes, as a bonus, a personalized, pocket-sized guidebook. We call it a PorTOURble.

You have full control over everything you see and do and pay.

All of our guides and associates are licensed, passionate New Yorkers who live here.

You get your choices of events, attractions, Broadway shows and dining spots.

We suggest that you also let us set up a Broadway show and evening or lunch meals for you. You choose your own show or allow us to pick one for you and your group (try our unique 1-2-3 Suggestion System for theatre shows and dining). Theatre events may also be Off-Broadway.
