We had one day in NYC and wanted to see as many sites as possible with our two young sons (ages 8 & 9). Scott was very accomodating and showed us the city in a way that we all really appreciated it. You could tell he had so much knowledge and care for the city and he took us to... More

This was our first trip to NY with our sons ages 21, 19, & 16. I was really happy with our guide Marcella. She was full of information and was very accommodating. It was no problem to stop for a snack or a rest whenever we wanted. We really learned a lot about the city from her. I highly recommend... More

This was the first trip to New York City for our kids (ages 9 and 12). We had a limited amount of time and wanted them to see as much as they could! Scott was great to work with in arranging the tour to meet our wishes! All communications were prompt and instructions explicit. Rob was a great guide and... More

This was our second vacation to New York City and we were interested in visiting places we had not seen on our first trip. We were able to choose the sites we went to and could spend as much time as we wanted at each place because we weren't tied up with a group. Our guide, Dina was great! She... More

Our tour guide was Rob and he really knew a lot about the history of New York and... More

We had a private mini-van tour with Scott. I think it was a 6 hour tour. There were 5 adults and 1 toddler (they provided a car seat). We spent 4 nights in a hotel on Times Square and saw a lot of the traditional sites before taking this tour, but Scott showed us places we wouldn't have found on... More

This was one of the best tours we've taken. I emailed them and Scott was so incredible in his quick responses, considering the 16hours time difference. I was travelling with my husband and two children (17 and 14). Dina picked us up from our hotel and took us around NY. She was fantastic with her knowledge and personality. She made... More

Family in New York was great, Neil kept our kids aged between 1 and 13 entertained and took us to see the different parts of New York we would have never found!! When we reflected back on the day we realised what we had seen, Grand Central, Staten Island , statue of Liberty, Cable car to Roosevelt Island, Federal Reserve,... More
