Jonathan and Alex are THE HISTORY COUPLE, and they have been giving tours in New York City since 2014, sharing the stories they love and bringing history to life.
Their love story began in NYC in 2012 when they met as actors and fell in love playing opposite one another in William Shakespeare’s comedy “As You Like It.” Inseparable since then, they have continued to inspire one another to pursue their mutual passion for education and history. They developed THE HISTORY COUPLE and its series of tours out of their passion to make the history of NYC come alive in engaging and entertaining ways.
Alex and Jonathan have backgrounds in theater and education, which makes every tour with THE HISTORY COUPLE a thought-provoking, engaging, and fun experience. They love to hear your questions and ideas, which make every tour unique. THE HISTORY COUPLE keeps all tour groups small so that each visitor feels comfortable, at ease, and invited to participate.
Whether you live in New York City or are just visiting, THE HISTORY COUPLE offers walking tours that everyone can enjoy! Book a private tour with your favorite walking buddies or come on a public tour and meet a whole new group of friends. Either way, you’ll all love hearing the offbeat stories of NYC’s great neighborhoods!
