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 timely. i would recommend him ten times over if you are looking for a great guide!!!

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 way to start our trip. I didn't have to look at a map once. We loved seeing all the neighborhoods of Brooklyn from Geovanni's "local" viewpoint. We appreciated all of his knowledge of the historical and architectural sites around Central Park and surrounding neighborhoods. We loved all the beautiful views from amazing vantage points. We feel we really got to know Central Park from a locals perspective. His advice on restaurants and how to navigate all the tourist sites was invaluable. Because of his advice, we discovered 9th avenue restaurants, which is near Times Square, and we enjoyed some wonderful local eateries. Our lengthy discussion before the trip helped me plan our week. We would highly recommend Geovanni for anyone who wants to spend the day with someone born and raised in the Brooklyn/New York area and who has a passion for history, architecture, people, food and nature! He really has it all with a friendly, outgoing personality. We will call Geovanni the next time we are in the city for another adventure!

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 facts that not many people know and was great at sharing. It was an exception tour full of interesting information.

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 hours we discovered numerous photo taking vantage points - photos we will later use to decorate the apartment in Toronto. A few of the architectural highlights included the old Ghostbusters firehall, the Royal Tenenbaum's house in Harlem and the majesty of the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. While touring the cathedral, the late afternoon sun touched the stain glass in the most magnificent way, spraying mauve hue across the interior. Geovanni had obviously done his research and we appreciated seeing hidden gems packed with fascinating stories. This was my 3rd year touring with Geovanni and we're already planning our 4th expedition with him again in the coming months. HIGHLY recommend!
