Owner description: Lets face it, New York tours are only as good as their tour guides. Real New York Tours gives people the opportunity to see the city through the eyes of real New Yorkers. Real New York Tours explores the history, the cracks and crevices, the side streets, and culture of real New York neighborhoods. We’ll ride the New York subway, pound the pavement, and meet the people who have become the fabric of this great city. Together we will feel the electricity that drives everyday New Yorkers. This is real New York!

My family and I took the private tour with Mindy on the first day of our stay in NYC, and it set us up so well for the following 9 days we were on holiday in the city. Despite the rain, Mindy took us through as much of Manhattan as we could handle, and when we decided that it was... More

BEST EVER TOUR OF NYC! As a 54 year mom with my 17 year old son visiting NYC for a mother/son weekend, I wasn't sure if we would enjoy a group tour with 10 other folks of random ages led by a hyperkinetic tour guide named Jimmy. TURNS OUT, WE HAD A BLAST. Jimmy was incredibly knowledgeable, funny, smart, and... More

My friend and I took the Dozen Apples Group Tour on January 24th with Trey as our guide. This was BY FAR THE BEST TOUR I have ever take in New York, and I've taken quite a few. We were iffy in the morning about going when we saw the weather (mix of snow and rain) but so glad we... More

Hey Lisa, you were one of the brave soldiers that didn't cancel your vacation in spite of an oncoming blizzard. I love it! Thank you so much for your kind words. If there is anyone that can keep a group going during the cold days of winter it is Trey Gibbons. His fun loving spirit is contagious and so glad... More

This was simply the best day we had in our 7 days in New York City over the New Year period. We made sure we did this tour on day 2 of our stay, as recommended by friends that had taken exactly the same tour on their visit a year earlier. We did the full day Big Apple tour and... More

This was the first trip to New York for my sons (18 and 21 yrs old). I had been several times before. We wanted a "ground floor" look at the neighborhoods in the city, not just the tourist experience. Ben took us around and talked about architecture from an historical and modern day perspective, the people who contributed to building... More

Best day ever!! Our guide for a private 6 hour tour was Fabrice and he was amazing. We all learned so much (most importantly how to use the subway) and got to see every sight that we wanted. We got lucky with a beautiful day and really had an authentic NYC experience. Do not hesitate to book--best vacation decision we... More

Fabrice is a great guide - and guy - and he loves the city and what he does. To see what you mean, potential customers... More

We surprised our two teenage daughters (14 & 16) with a NYC trip for Christmas this year. This was our very first time to the city. What a great experience! Trey was our guide - and he did an absolutely amazing job. We did the tour on Dec 30. I know he showed us things and told us things we... More

Probably the highlight of our trip to NY. Our guide Nathan was the font of all knowledge when it came to downtown NY. Washington Park, with the pianist on a baby grand playing Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue near their copy of the Arc d'Triomphe, will live in the memory for a long time. The 3 hours wandering around Downtown and... More

After reading reviews for months I decided to book a private tour with Real New York Tours. I have been to NYC six times over the past 15 years, others in our group had never been.
