Have You Met Newark Tours was founded in 2012 by Emily Manz and Antonio Valla.


As trained urban planners and residents of Newark, each has a deep love for the city’s history, present,  and future.


Our company takes pride in creating  tours that:

  • Explore the past, present, and future

  • Are both informative and enjoyable

  • Introduce guests to Newark leaders, businesses, and non-profits


Have You Met Newark believes in and practices eating, shopping, living and hiring local. 


Our unique take on tours has been featured in blogs, on television, and even a TedX Talk.


We can't wait for you to experience Newark with us!
