Geovanni is the BEST!!!!! We used him for three days straight and had the absolute best time. We saw so much more of the best parts of NY in three days with him than we would have seen in six months alone. He is more than knowledgeable, has a wonderful personality and super fun nature and is so professional and... More

Geovanni took us on a fabulous tour in New York City! Upon landing at JFK we were swept away like being picked up by a friend. We would have missed 1/2 of the sites, had we been on our own. The airport pick up, tour of Brooklyn and then 2+ hours biking around Central Park was a perfect, no stress... More

Giovanni was a great tour guide. Being native New Yorkers, there is so much to learn about the FiDi and other locations downtown New York that we never knew about. He was extremely knowledgeable and very good at relaying the history of downtown in a way that allowed us to feel like we were in the time. He knew little... More

Over New Years 2013, Geovanni provided an exceptional "architectural" tour for my boyfriend and I through lower, mid and upper Manhattan as well as sections of Harlem. Geovanni ensured we travelled in style and provided us with a luxury town car and a well humoured driver. Our guide possessed a stack of local knowledge and over the course of 3... More

BE AWARE apparently this company doesn't exist anymore!!! Worst company ever! I had a paid reservation for the Central Park Tour and the tour guide never showed up. Waisted half day trying to solve this matter with no success. We arrived half hour prior the tour and waited there for more than an hour after the scheduled time and the... More

On vacation trips we have always arranged for a walking tour of cities that we visited. We have found that it is a great way to appreciate, and get a better understanding, of neighborhoods that one cannot get from a tour bus-or trying to do it on our own. We thought that it might be fun to do a walking... More

Of course you do. Your tour guide, Geovanni will surprise you with some of NYC's finest ethnic foods as he walks you through the history of an area in Manhattan made famous by the the movie, "Gangs of New York". Let him take you back in time to see how radically different NYC was once upon a time.

I bought a LivingSocial voucher for a tour that I would not be able to do so the company gladly exchanged it for another tour. Thank you so much. So I decided to do the Historic Downtown to Chinatown tour. Geovanni was our tour guide again. He is a great tour guide. He is very informative and he also showed... More

We did a food tour with Giovanni and loved it. The food choices were excellent and the commentary was very interesting. Giovanni was a great guide. He is knowledgeable and engaging.
