We did the private tour with Greg on 4/17. It was myself, wife and 11 year old son. On our way to NYC (via amtrack) I got a message from the owner (Luke) that our original guide had come down with the flu and would not be able to take us out the next day. Luke worked hard throughout the... More

1st timers in NYC and our first full day out my husband, teenage daughter and I did the Dozen Apples tour with Aaron. The tour really helped us get our bearings with the City by leaning to ride the subway as well as by putting the different areas into perspective. The tour was fast paced, fun and very informative.

We can recommend this tour Company to everyone. Our guide was Gregory and he was very informative, personnel and funny. We had the Down Town dozen tour. But there was so much to see so the time was a little short. Perhaps it's better to take the whole day tour (all though Gregory made ours 5 hours). Thank you Gregory... More

We did the dozen apples tour with jimmy. It is a must if you are coming to New York! The tour was very informative and as we love history it was right up our alley . After the tour we were way more confident getting round Manhattan on the subway and walking around

I had booked this tour for myself and my husband who is very difficult to please. He hates shopping!!!! We had been in New York for only 1 night before the tour, so really needed to find our bearings as quickly as possible to make the most of our short visit. We met Aaron who was fantastic! The whole group... More

Aaron gave us a wonderful tour with just the right balance of humor and information. It was a great way to see a lot of the city in a short time. Our two kids (11 and 15) enjoyed it as much as we did.

My Wife and I did the Big Apple private tour on 12th April 2014. I would recommend Real New York Tours to anyone who is only in New York for a short period of time. We were only visiting from the UK for a long weekend. We saw more areas of Manhattan in a day than we would probably have... More

Jimmy was great! Very informative on the history and areas of New York. We went to New York for an event we had going on that coming weekend and to learn a bit about the city since we are starting to do business there. We would not have picked any other tour. We wanted the best and we got the... More

My three daughters and daughter-in-law took me to NYC for a long weekend, as I had never been. The first full day we had this tour planned by Real New York Tours for the 5 of us. We had so much fun with our knowledgable guide; he took us all around lower Manhattan up to Central Park via walking and... More

We did the Dozen Apples 6 hour tour as a family of four, along with another group. It was a cool day in March, but our guide did a great job of finding places out of the wind to do his talking, and kept the pace moving, but comfortable. I'm a 56 year old typical overweight middle aged guy, and... More
