Our tour guide was Shawn. I did the 6Hr tour only myself and my wife were on the tour. We did a lot of touring of the city at our own pace and were able to ask questions without being rushed. If you are able to afford the cost it is worth the price. If you don't plan on staying... More

Really enjoyed this tour, it was good to do at the beginning of our break as it enabled us to get a handle on the geography of Manhattan as well as getting to grips with the subway. Fabrice was fab, lots of really good information and very friendly and helpful.

Took my 18 year old daughter and her friend to New York for graduation. This was the highlight of the trip. The girls loved our guide Luke and just loved all his stories. I would highly recomend this to anyone who really wants to get the true New York experience. Thanks Luke!

He took us to places that we would not have ventured out on our own to see, therefore missing what makes New York a great place to live and visit. He gave us an intimate view of how people really...

Last year Shwan took us for a great tour around 5 Points, Chinatown and over to Brooklyn with history in... More

This tour was great! We were very impressed with our tour guide Shawn. He was very informative and made the tour fun. This was the first time all 4 of us had been to NYC and we were a little intimidated on how to get around. After our private tour we were at ease wondering the city. I recommend this... More

What a way to see New York and learn about the city. Our tour guide, Jimmy, was awesome! He took his time with us and we learned things about the history of New York that we never would have known. He was both fun and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend the tour to anyone visiting... More
