Amazing!!! 5 stars!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
May 2021 • Family
Our tour was absolutely wonderful!!!! Scott, our tour guide, met us at our arrival location and took us to each site by foot and subway which was absolutely great as it took away the intimidation of trying to navigate the city alone as semi-newcomers and was very knowledgeable and insightful about the history of everything we saw! He also took wonderful pics of our family, gave great recommendations for restaurant choices, made enough time in our schedule to see things that were not apart of our original tour plan and he even made sure that we got to our seperate boat tour in a timely manner to purchase our tickets before they sold out! Scott was wonderful and we were happy to have him host us! Highly recommend this tour for those that want to tailor it more to their specific interests!

Wonderful tour - best way to navigate NYC
Jun 2019 • Family
Our family of four (including our two daughters, 7 & 9) did a five hour tour by foot and subway. Our guide Tammy was fantastic. She took us everywhere on our list and more. She also knew where to get good food, which we could really appreciate. And we also took a couple breaks at playgrounds in parks along the way to give our kiddos some time to play. Bottom line - we could not have seen so much of the city without doing this tour. It was comforting to have an expert guide us. I feel like I know a lot more about Manhattan and how the city is laid out now. It’s a great tour to take on your first day so you can decide what to explore more in depth on your own later!

Ideal at the start of your stay
We booked this tour for our first day in New York. Tammi was great and took us to the places we wanted to see. She showed us how to use the subway and had lots of local knowledge. A great tour if you are short of time or want to get your New York bearings.

Scott was excellent as tour guide.
Engaging and informative.
We chose a day which was cold, frosty and then fairly heavy snow but managed to cover an extensive area on our 9 hour tour.
Recommended.

We were only in New York for a short time, so this tour was perfect for us. Dina, our guide was amazing. I cannot believe what we accomplished in a few short hours including stopping for lunch. It was great, thanks again Dina. Will definitely use my new found Family in New York next time we get there.

5 Hour NYC Tour....Everything we wanted to see!
Mar 2018 • Family
Dina, our tour guide, was awesome! She met our family at the hotel, and gave us a great tour of everything we wanted to see in the city! She helped guide us on the subway, and taught us how to go about getting to other places we were going during our stay. She gave us the inside scoop of a wonderful restaurant we would have never found on our own; a place that the locals would only know of in Chinatown! Scott, the owner, was very easy to get in touch with, and very personable and accommodating when the weather and flight mishaps messed up our arrival time to New York.

Our most amazing day!
We booked the full 9 hour private tour , as we wanted to make the most of our trip to New York
We were met at our hotel by our guide Dina, and we briefly chatted about what it was we wanted to achieve/ see

We certainly got what we expected and so much more!

From the Rockefeller to the Empire State Building, we were given step by step guidance, constant commentary on the history of the places we were visiting plus fascinating insight into how to get around New York in the best way possible- plus of course we were shown the best places to eat/ drink in the city

Dina was super friendly, knowledgable plus nothing was too much trouble- and absolute star and would 100% recommend her for any tour you have

New York- what a city, 5 days just isn’t enough!!!
