One of the best ways to explore a new city is on foot -- and while it's easy enough to wander around on your own, there's nothing like having a savvy guide who can show you the secret local spots you might otherwise miss. That's why we love these incredible city walking tours around the world, from a dessert-tasting excursion in Hong Kong to an artist-led tour of London's graffiti and murals.

All of our picks are short walking tours (most are two to three hours) and have drawn rave reviews on TripAdvisor. Click on any image to start the slideshow and get inspired.
