It allows us to cover a lot of ground, and experience the city not just through the windows of a bus, but on our feet, exploring like an urbanite. Our New York tours are beautifully designed; you will see unexpected sights with your New York guide, who will accompany you for the entirety of your NYC tour. We tour in a 24-passenger mini-bus designated for your use exclusively; your seat is yours for the entire tour. Our 3 tours: • The Get Acquainted West Side Tour familiarizes you Central Park, 5th Avenue, Grand Central Terminal, The Village, and ultimately winds up in Battery Park for a view of the 9/11 Memorial. • The Brooklyn Grand Tour is grand in its diversity, from Park Slope, to historic Greenwood Cemetery and Red Hook, to Prospect Park and Williamsburg. • We also offer custom designed private tours. Please feel free to call. « less

Met up with Onel for what we thought was a group tour. Lucky for us, it was just my husband and myself on the tour. Our guide was just amazing. He knows Brooklyn! And his love for his city was obvious. He had so much knowledge about the different residential and commercial areas, who lived where, when things were built,... More

Onel was our tour guide and provided us with an amazing tour. He entertained us with stories of NY, provided us great history lessons and highlighted the amazing archietecture... More

Our family of four had the most amazing day with Fred and Onel! We learned history, architecture and more from them during our walking tour. They were fun, professional and extremely knowledgeable. We're telling all of our friends about this top notch tour company. Marilyn S.

It was our pleasure. It's rare that Onel and I share a tour, I was glad I could come downtown and meet you and your family. Onel told me you had a wonderful time together. More

This was my first trip to NYC, and I didn't fully appreciate the city (if at all) until I took the tour with Fred. By taking this tour, I got an overall perspective on NYC. This made the rest of my trip SO much better because I knew where I was, what all of the major landmarks were, and a... More

We were very fortunate to receive a private tour with Fred, and it was truly the best day of our 3 days in NYC. It was a very chilly, wet, blustery day and we were delighted to be driven around the city for 5 hours and shown all of the sights and landmarks we have always heard about, with facts,... More

Our tour guide was great, a walking encyclopedia of New York history and architecture. The lights in Brooklyn are incredible, we still talk about them.

Fred was nice enough to offer a private tour for my two daughters and me when we came to the city during a time when he wasn't offering his bus tours. We did a walking subway tour that was personalized per our interests. It was great. He met us at our hotel, early. We started by foot, saw Grand Central... More

We booked Fred for the Christmas Lights Tour of Brooklyn. It was the perfect evening activity after a long day of walking around sight seeing, although we did hop on and off the bus a few times to stroll around. There was just the right amount of walking involved and it didn't hurt that it was a balmy December evening... More

Our tour with Fred P. was one of the highlights of our recent holiday trip to NYC. We did the Christmas Lights Tour of Brooklyn with Fred on a Saturday evening from 7-11pm. It was the highest value expenditure of our whole trip! I read a few previous reviews that said Fred left them stranded at one of the stops,... More
