Denise and Waverly Winchester are the Mom and Kid Team behind KidsnewsNYC. Waverly dreamed this idea up when she was just 7 years old so that kids would have an actual voice in reporting about people, places and things that are of interest to the kids themselves. It started with the question, "Mom, why is it always the MOMS doing the blogging and the reviews? Don't kids get to have a say in it? Can you make me a website so I can do it?" So, wanting Waverly to know that with enough hard work and determination, an idea can become reality, and without knowing the first thing about blogging, websites, who to connect with, etc., they got to work and created it, much to their own surprise. Four years later, they have grown far beyond our wildest dreams, covering countless events, Broadway shows, KidTerviewing movie and musical stars.... Denise and Waverly are THRILLED to become Virtual Guides so they can show families many of the wonderful experiences kids in NYC are lucky enough to have right outside their apartment buildings! They of course hope you visit NYC in person as soon as you can, but until then, please enjoy it alongside us on one of our tours!
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to New York with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from New York. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.
