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

Our family of 5 was in NY for a holiday in June 2015 and since it was the first time (for most of us), we decided to engage 'Family In NY' to do some tours for us including airport transfers. We booked a full-day tour, a walking tour as well as a night tour with them. First of all, let... 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

Our transfer with Family In New York from JFK to NYC was great! Although we were unfortunately delayed through customs on arrival as the computer system was down and Border Control could not process arrivals for a while, our driver was patiently waiting for us and kindly helped us with our bags to the car which was lovely, as we...

Full Day Tour (9-6) Dena , our tour guide for the day, met us at our hotel at 9am. We knew in advance the basic areas we wanted to visit and what was possible, we discussed these with Dena for 10 minutes and agreed what we would try to cover during the full day. Dena wore training shoes, a strong... More

Contracted this tour company to show us all the city. We were in town for my son's graduation from college. We started with a nine hour tour but our guide was so AMAZING he would not leave us at our last stop and added the time to take us back to hotel. He was full of history, fun facts and... More

We had a layover for 11 hours on our way to Israel so I decided to find a tour company for a New Your City tour. We could have not found a better company. Scott was by far 1 of the best tour guides I have ever had. He showed us everything that you would want to see in the... More

We have used Family in New York on a previous occasion and decided we can't go past this company. We were right. Both the tours we took were fantastic. Dina walked us around New York making the city feel alive. Scott gave us a fantastic tour of Harlem and The Bronx changing our minds about these areas. We will be... More

How wonderful it was to see you again! Next month begins our 11th year in business, so we see a fair number of returning "family" It is like a reunion.
