I can say without hesitation that my girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour with Real NY Tours . Walking NY puts a totally different spin on NYC. Bus tours just don't put you in the reality of NY. Walking and listening to David's wonderful anecdotes, historical and otherwise made for a stimulating experience. Definitely got our exercise -...

I would gladly recommend the 6 hours group walking tour of NY. It was my first contact with the city and by the end of the day I felt I had a really good overview of lifestyle and culture in New York. Nathan has an excellent commitment as a tour guide, young, friendly, energetic and an easy going personality. Great... More

After reading the reviews, we decided to do the 6hr walking tour on our first day in NYC. We are glad we did, it made the rest of the trip to New York so much easier, learning how to use the subway was a huge plus. You travel a lot of ground by foot in that time, so be prepared.... More

Having seen the companies web site I was eagerly anticpating this tour and it did not disappoint in anyway. The tour is restricted to no more than 12 individuals (on ours we had 10 - 2 Americans, 2 Australians and us 4 Brits) and takes in the sites of New York that might well otherwise be overlooked by visitors -...

Tours don't get much better than this! I traveled to New York with my two (now adult) children of 25 and 28 years. We chose the Dozen Apples 6 hour Walking Tour for our first full day in NYC. Our tour guide was Gregory who met us in the rain and enthusiastically got us excited about the day. This is... More

Would highly recommend the 7 hour group walking tour of NY. We were 1st timers to the big A and by the end of the day we felt we had a really good overview of the city, both in terms of the layout and of the fascinating history of this most cosmopolitan of destinations. The day was hugely enhanced by... More

We chose the 6 hour Dozen Apples Tour. I have to admit we were a little concerned about walking around NYC for six hours. I was afraid in the summer heat it might be more than I really wanted to do. But Aaron sized up our group of 9 and made sure we were seeing amazing things every minute of... More

I had such high expectations after reading all of the glowing reviews on TA. Our guide was Gregory who was nice but he spoke as though he were auditioning for a Shakespearean play - full of formality and airs that was fun at first but became really annoying quickly. We spent the first 1/2 hour standing in front of the... More

I would highly recommend this to anyone who is visiting NY, particularly those with limited time! It was a fantastic tour, we had a great guide and fantastic value for money. We did the 7 hour walking group tour! I would go on and on if time permitted! My one main tip is to ensure that you are comfortable in... More
