The 9 hour private tour with Scott was by far the highlight of our vacation!! We traveled from Ky to Pennsylvania for a one week vacation and the kids (ages16-21) insisted we visit New York for a day since we were so close. I must admit I was very hesitant as I knew nothing about New York and through researching... More

We truly enjoyed this family tour. We had a group of 10 (children's ages ranging from 7-30 years old). Ammi, our tour guide, was absolutely delightful and very knowledgeable. He met us at our hotel, and was so accommodating to our "must sees" and extremely flexible with anything we asked or wanted to do. Within 8 hours we were able... More

My family of eight took a five-hour tour with Family in New York upon our arrival in the "Big Apple." It was the best thing we could have done to get a good overview of the city. Our tour guide was Joel. At our request, most or our tour was walking or by subway. Joel used up every second of... More

Our personal tour guide; Ammi met us at our hotel on the morning of our tour, took us to breakfast and then showed us the city. Ammi was a wonderful tour guide, he is so knowledgeable about NYC and so nice to our family. My daughters, ages 13 and 9 loved his personality. He was an absolute joy to spend... More

Our guide Scott was quite knowledgeable about all the NYC sights. We had him for the 9 hr city tour. This tour involves a lot of walking, ( according to the different apps some in our group had in their cell phones, we walked approx 13 miles), so be prepared! Some of the advantages of this kind of tour: 1.... More

We booked the NYC Night tour with Family in NY since we are new to this place and obviously do not know the best tourist locations. Scott was literally amazing. He provided us with very interesting information and answered all our questions. Not only that- this is not a per-arranged tour, they customize it according to the client's requirements -... More

I've been to NYC many times and only once with my family - we have 3 girls ages 9,11 and 13 and we wanted a 'hassle' free experience with focus on enjoying the sites, not trying to figure out how to get to it, where to eat and what do do next. Scott was great in answering questions and then... More

I came across Family in New York via trip advisor and took the plunge. It was myself and my 4 kids, ages 8, 12, 15 and 16. I was pleasantly surprised at how well it went. We had the most wonderful guide, Marciella, who was so pleasant and informative. She shared so much history about everything we saw and was... More
