A 6 hour walking tour sounds like an endurance event but this turned but to be the highlight of our short stay. Our party of six had 2 teenagers and 2 seniors but everyone enjoyed the pace. Our tour guide Jeanette was flexible, knowledgeable and good company. We rode the subway system to take us around the attractions; Central Park,... More

My husband and I choose the "Dozen apples" tour and our guide was Gregory. We were so thrilled by the whole experience of being in New York and this tour just took that excitement to another level. Gregory was kind, genuine and full of information. He took time during the tour to ask us questions and our group really had... More

The quirky and curious were pointed out to our small group ranging in age from 8 to 60 together with amusing stories. Our guide was friendly and enthusiastic throughout the tour.

Absolutely amazing tour. Was able to really get a "feel" for New York. Our guide was Aaron, he was awesome. Very knowledgable and friendly. I recommend doing the 6 hr tour on one of your first days in New York to get orientated with the city areas and the subway.

We took 2 of the 6 hour private tours, with Fabrice as our guide both days. What he showed us and his knowledge of present and historic information was like having an encyclopedia as a guide! We could not stump him on any question in any part of New York....and it was all fun to boot! I would highly recommend... More

Real New York Tours came very highly recommended by our son and his wife who had done the Dozen Apples Tour as part of a small group. We decided to book a 6hr private tour on our first full day in New York. From the moment of booking to when we said goodbye to Shawn our guide their service was... More

Thanks Jimmy! What a great tour. Our Guide - Jimmy, was knowledgeable, likeable and funny (the satire and jokes ranged from laugh out loud to groan!). A good mix of American history, both political and cultural, plus pop and rock culture. We would have missed some of the detail if we had visited without a guide, especially in the financial... More

My husband and I are first timers in the big Apple. We decided to book 3 private tours with Luke and his team. Shawn was our tour guide on our first day for the big apple tour. What a great way to start our holiday we got to see all round the city and places we would never have thought... More

In general, the tour was great. The guide was fun and knowledgeable. However, we did not visit one of the sites listed on the itinerary. Also, the guide did not take us back to our starting point. He left us at the end of the tour on Wall St. He did give me directions on how to get back on... More

First time in New York and read reviews on Trip Advisor about this tour company. Booked it for our first full day in NYC and so glad we did. It is a 7 hour walking tour that shows you so much of what you want to see in one day. Also shows you how to use the subway, which was... More
