What a great day we had with Real New York Tours! We took the Dozen Apples tour and it was wonderful. Even if you have visited the city before, it's a great experience and you will learn a lot. We booked this tour because we were only in town a few days and wanted to see as much as we... More

Real New York Tours - I cannot recommend this highly enough. My family (wife and I are 43, kids are 14 y/o son and 15 y/o daughter) had our first ever and largest ever family vacation to NYC July 19-22nd. I spend months planning and researching and it paid off in many ways, including booking a private tour with Gregory... More

We had Jimmy Napoli as our guide along with Luke Miller who I think is the owner. We did the 3 hour downtown tour. Jimmy did most of the tour with Luke occasionally adding in a few tidbits of info. Jimmy was awesome. Just looking at him and watching his mannerisms was really cool. He is a true NY'er. Both... More

The booking process went very smoothly over the internet. Our guide Lawrence met us at the hotel and we started our 6 hour private tour by foot and underground. He was so knowledgeable, it was amazing! We could ask all the questions we had. We saw a lot of Manhattan in these 6 hours including many places we would have... More

I found out about Real New York Tours via a YouTube video made by the owner of the company Luke Miller. Luke presented the view of New York that I wanted to see, a walking tour with historical and trivia information about some of the best known sites of New York along with some real hidden treasures ! Also the... More

Coming to NYC for the first time for my 35th birthday we were looking to do a tour to get to know the city. We booked a private six hour walking tour and met up with Heidi in the lobby of our hotel. It was fantastic and well worth the money and time. Heidi really looked after us and was... More

If you are spending some time in New York and would like to find out more about it, then this is just what you need to do! Myself and my wife booked the 6 hour walking tour which also takes you on the subways and into areas you would not normally go in to. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and... More

Great tour! We did the downtown dozen and our guide was David. He knew so much about the area and was able to provide lots of interesting details and answer all our questions. Plus he was fun. The girls enjoyed it as much as the adults. Be prepared for lots of walking--good shoes are really important! Great value for the... More

This was a great experience. We toured a diverse area of NYC that helped us to plan some of of our other NYC activities. The tour was personalized and took us to some places we may not have ventured to on our own as we have never been to NYC before and were apprehensive about some areas. After the tour,... More

I booked a half day tour for my French family and heard only good things from them. The guide managed to make the tour fun and instructive even dealing with heavy for the first couple hours and a group of 4 that were not necessarily the most travel warriors. The guide also gave them plenty of tips for the remaining... More
