Owner description: What sets our New York tours apart? We offer our guests a unique combination walking/riding New York tour. 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.

Fred is a wonderful guide & took us on a great tour of the Xmas lights in Dyker Heights and NYC. He was flexible and found a quick stop for food as well. He knows the area and gave us great history and information (even for the ex-New Yorkers in our group). He customized the tour based on our needs... More

Our family of 6 took a wonderful private tour with Fred last night to see the incredible Dyker-Heights Christmas Lights. It was even more special than when I first saw it on TV. These people in this Italian neighborhood really go all out. In addition, Fred took us to the Brooklyn esplanade where we saw the most incredible views you... More

We had an all-time great adventure with Brooklyn Jim on the tour he and Fred customized for us based on our suggestions and their extensive knowledge of Greenwich Village and NYC. Eight of us (guys and gals) were in town for a conference and typically we'd go out for dinner and drinks, but we took a chance with NYSee Tours... More

This is the second tour we have done with this company. The most recent was a 5 hour walking tour with "Brooklyn Jim". Because it was only ourselves and our friends (4 in total) we were asked what we most wanted to see and Jim customized the tour to our preferences. How awesome is that! I have read some not... More

My wife and daughter were going to be in New York with a group and wanted to see some New York highlights. My wife found the NYSee Tours website and contacted Fred regarding a personal walking tour for herself, my daughter, and three friends. Fred was prompt to return her call and discussed possible itineraries. He was very professional, pleasant... More

We had a wonderful time with Fred. Fred was so knowledgeable about the city. We learned so much and had a great time! We did the walking tour and loved it. Fred taught us how to use the subway and the buses. Definitely a great way to start our New York adventure.

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
