I booked an evening skyline tour of NYC with Family in New York. "Cousin" Scott responded to my questions and in fact, provided the tour. He picked us up at our hotel at 6:30p and whisked us away on an absolutely unforgettable and beautiful 3-hr tour. I had never seen the skyline of NYC at night, and I am still... More

We spent an amazing day with Marsella from Family in New York. This tour is a walking/subway tour which really lets you see the heart of New York City. There is no other way to truly see what is happening in New York. Marsella shared her passion and insight in the way only a local can do. We did this... More

We were so fortunate to have had Ammiel ( Ammi ) be our " family in New York " he was nothing short of sensational for our group, keeping a big bunch of Aussies entertained, informed and giving us a real 100% NY city experience from a local. We saw sights that not many do as we wanted to avoid... More

I had written to Scott several months ahead of time and had booked two tours with him. One, a New York at night and the other, New York City Tour (9 hrs).... More

Punctual, helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and superb service! To see and do as much as we did in 5 hours with Rob would have taken 1-2 days as an independent tourist. Nothing was too much trouble and we were informed on things that we could never have known - a brilliant guide and a nice guy too. - Thanks Rob We... More
