My husband and I spent four hours on a private walking tour with Fred. We had a wonderful time and Fred was the best! Very friendly, professional and knowledgeable. We highly recommend booking a tour with NYSee - WELL worth it!

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

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

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
