I took the family to NYC in December and wanted to use every minute to soak it all up. We had the walking tour on the Friday, which was the best way to spend the day seeing the major sites we wanted but also some we never would have found on our own without Dina's expertise of a local resident....

We asked for support on a customer visit on Saturday January 16th. Marcella came over to support of for the full day. It was an excellent day.

It's a long day So you want to make sure everyone in your group are ok with walking everywhere. We did use the bus and subway during the day so you'll... More

Our first visit to New York City was going to be a short one between cruise and fliying home so some research found the excellent company Family in New York. Comms were brilliant and our tour guide rang me as soon as we arrived in Brooklyn and collected us,as arranged, in a very smart vehicle. It was a rainy day... More

If you like experiencing neighborhoods, fantastic views of lower Manhattan, Statue of Liberty, the three "BMW" bridges, DUMBO in Brooklyn, parks along the water fronts, very old buildings, cobblestone streets, at night, this is for you! I never thought I would get into the "nitty gritty " with so much to explore and information from Scott! Don't forget to look... More

My sister and I visited New York thanksgiving week and used the services of Scott and his team. We googled and found family in New York and were very impressed with his service from the beginning with his very prompt replies to emails. We organised transfers to and from the airport, the night tour and a day to Woodbury commons... More

It was fabulous to have our own NYC tour guide (Joel) for 9 hours! We saw a lot and gained a lot of knowledge that helped us for the rest of our trip! Would recommend to anyone, but make sure you have comfortable shoes ( a lot of walking!)

My wife and I spent an excellent first day in NYC doing a day tour. Using public transport including the subway and lots of walking helped us get our bearings around the city. Great broad overview of the major sights and also some "off the beaten path"and quirky places made it even more interesting. Our guide Rob, a bit of... More

A personal recommendation helped us find Scott and having now done two separate tours with Family In New York, we couldn't recommend it high enough. Rob took us on the walking tour and just let us wander (leading gently) and discover some of NYC's lesser know but beautiful and intriguing parts of the city. His knowledge of the history of...

Danielle and Josh - what a delight it was for Rob and I to spend two days with you both and your lovely so well-behaved children! It was great! I learn something from every single guest. From you it was "smoko." I love it! I just can't believe it took me so long to learn it. Though I practice it... More
