New York, United States

Experience hosted by Barbara

  1. 2 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

You learn more about each other, yourself, and how you collaborate by doing something together than you will by talking! Get closer by getting curious...

We visit 5 places that personify aspects of New York, one for each sense: Taste, Smell, Touch, Hearing, and Sight.

Yet, did you know you have unlimited senses?

Along our way, we explore what other senses are important to our special group, e.g. a sense of play, intuition, freedom, confidence, safety, intimacy, strength, etc. We choose two, and improvisationally explore those en route between our 5 locations.

New York is a city in constant creativity. Discover New York like artists. Tapping into your senses this way enhances the rest of your date and day, too.

Yes, family members, work colleagues, friend dates, and milestone celebrations are welcome. You'll deepen your relationship with whomever you experience Seven Senses, including yourself!
Other things to note
Wear comfortable shoes, and dress appropriately to go both outside and inside, depending on the season. Travel light.

I am an audience-interactive theater artist for over 20 years. My own senses, our common five plus play and intuition, are my sources for creation and connection, artistically and personally. My art, fun and serious, creates opportunities for you to transform yourself through your 5+ senses, too. I've led experiential programs for 1000's of curious people like you. Let's play!

Where you'll be

We meet in southern Central Park, in the ease and enjoyment of nature, then turn to face the bustle, buildings, and bravado of the City. As we walk around, we feel how New York changes energy, culture, and mood, sometimes block by block. Sense this City! We can change, too, block by block, as we discover each other and ourselves.

Rated 4.94 out of 5 from 18 reviews.

My sister and I chose the 7 Senses Tour as an experience to share with our mother on her 70th birthday on a girls trip to NYC. Barbara was welcoming, engaging, and fun. We all felt comfortable with her and all the experiences she shared with us. We learned much about ourselves and each other and will always look back at the 7 Sense Tour as a memorable highlight of our trip.

It was a great experience overall. Barbara is a great host and guide through the city in engaging your senses. I would highly recommend the 7 seven senses stroll if you're looking for something unique... connecting to yourself, others, and the city. I had much fun exploring, laughing and even made a new friend from another country through this experience. Thanks Barbara :)

The Seven Senses Stroll pretty much has to be experienced to be understood. It was part walk, part theatre, part counseling session, part adventure, part meditation, part inner soul work. Just go with a open mind and follow along, and explore, and learn some news things about the world and yourself.

Bottom line up front: Just book this experience - it's amazing and I HIGHLY recommend it! If you're looking for a unique and creative way to experience NYC then this is it. The experience was an absolute highlight of my recent trip to the City. So much so, that I've send details to friends who are visiting later this year, and friends who live nearby. It is fantastic, and Barbara is a superb host. I plan on repeating it next time I'm in the city too! Barbara introduces you to the city (whether it's your first visit, are a repeat visitor (like me) or you live there) in a way that heightens your senses and shows you parts of it you've never seen/heard/felt/tasted/smelled before. Without me wanting to give away all the details, she introduces you to ways of connecting with this incredible city that are fun, eye opening, informative and also challenge you ever so slightly. On the day I booked, it was just me, but I can see how it would be great with groups too. Barbara created several mini experiences that started in Central Park, headed south, stopped off at stores or landmarks, and ended with me not only using all 5 senses in a slightly new way, but also sparked my sense of fun. Again - if you're looking for a unique and creative way of experiencing NYC, then this is it!
