If your goal is to see the city with the eye of a local, this is the best value possible. Nathan was our tour guide for the Dozen Apples tour and he was simply fantastic. His knowledge and humor helped make this tour a great experience. We really enjoyed getting off the beaten path and seeing places not usually experienced... More

It was my first time in NYC and on our first full day we booked a Real New York Tour. It was amazing to say the least, Nathan was very personable and informative. I was not interested in the giant bus tours, so this is perfect if you want to see New York the way it should be seen... By... More

Our family of three booked a group tour for our first full day in New York. We has a terrific day full of interesting sights, learning interesting facts about the history of the city and some laughs about daily life here. It truly was like spending a day with a friend in the city. Trey was a terrific guide, engaging,... More

There's no better way to experience this vibrant city than with the help of a local. Nathan's pride and knowledge (both historical and cultural) of the city truly shined as he shepherded 11 of us on the Dozen Apples tour. The tour was worth every penny and then some. As other reviewers stated, take this tour on your first day... More

We met our tour guide Trey promptly at the designated start point. We were part of a group of 12 and right from the off he was very friendly yet very professional. We wanted to use this tour on a number of levels - obviously to learn about New York and see things we otherwise would never have experienced, we... More

His fast pace walking, talking and joking made this tour one to remember! We covered so much in just a few hours, but I felt privileged that Jimmy has shared his knowledge and passion for the city with me. You definitely need to wear comfy shoes and be prepared to go at a fast pace.

I booked this tour after reading the reviews from other people. All seemed like they had a good time so I thought let's have a go. During the booking process I was asked to write about what I wanted to see and do. Not being a particularly touristy guy I asked to be shown areas off the typical tourist route.... More

Greg was a super guide. So knowledgeable, adaptable, friendly, with a great voice that sounds like he's had drama training. We did a half day tour and stopped in the park for our grandson to have a quick chess game. Had to rush through the last part of the tour because we had timed tickets to the 9/11 museum. Be... More

My husband and I booked two tours with Luke. We were very fortunate to have Jimmy on day one and Heidi on day two. We could not praise either guide enough. The warmth and the love they have for this beautiful city was shared in a very professional way. No request was too much trouble and we did make some... More
