From the 1st day I emailed Scott about the tour, to the day of the tour, everything was so easy. We opted for the mini-van option, as we had a family of 6 and we knew it would be hot outside/in the subway and wanted something convenient. The van arrived perfectly on time, we were greeted and discussed the day... More

When the tour was set up several months ago, I had reservations about traveling the city on public transportation. However, with the guidance of our tour guide, Marcella, everything went fine. The...

This was absolutely the best, most cost effective way to see New York! I was afraid that we would not get to see everything we wanted to see when I had initially planned this trip, then right before we left, I found Family in New York. This was an awesome experience! Our guide Marcella was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She... More

This is the way to see New York! We saw things we never would have seen on our own accompanied by people who felt like family! We took both the Evening Lights tour and the 9 hour tour and we loved both of them. Cousin Scott and Cousin Neil were so much fun to be with we were sorry when... More

Walked all over manhattan and used the subway to see more sights than we could have possibly gotten to alone in one day . Great way to start off a trip to NYC as our guide was happy to show us the ropes and make suggestions.

We had already arranged for high tea, broadway theater, museum visit and were looking for some help and support for the rest of our time. After looking at... More
