Bottom line: We keep our groups small, our snack/refreshment stops local, and our fun walking tours focused on stories you’ll remember, not stats you will quickly forget. Our action-packed itineraries are available as both public and private options throughout the week, and are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike.

During our week in NYC we did three tours with CityRover. We did the Brooklyn Bridge Tour, Central Park, and City of Dreams. Each tour was with a different guide and each one was outstanding. Our family ranged from almost 10 years old to almost 80. The kids were engaged the entire time and never complained. The older people had... More

We spent 5 days in the city over Easter and our tour with Max was everyone's favorite! City Rover is a must if you visit NYC. I wish we could have hired him for everyday we were there! We will be back and we will be calling Max again.

Max gave my family a fantastic, private tour of Central Park. We had two family members in wheel chairs, plus others wanting to do certain things. Max took the time to make sure that everyone had a memorable tour of the park and got to see the things they wanted. This is our second tour with Max, and he never... More

We did a day long private tour of New York City with Max and our two teenage girls. Max customized the trip for us to ensure maximum enjoyment and fun for all and it was a great day! Highlights included a subway orientation (much needed for the rest of our trip) Central Park, Chelsea Market, the high line and much... More

Great three and half hour tour. Leisurely but comprehensive ramble in fantastic setting, and high marks for the historical details about the park design and architecture, and about the City. Very personable and considerate guide. This tour is not just for first time visitors to the park.

We loved everything about our Landmarks Walk with Rodney. His enthusiasm, knowledge, generosity, patience and snacks were all superlative. My 14 yr old was interested and engaged most of the time, which is really saying something! Lots of very interesting information we would never have known, historical and current. Can't wait to do another Rover Walk!

Sue, thank you so much for the wonderful feedback and the alliteration in your review title. I'm a sucker for well-placed alliteration. More importantly, I am thrilled that Rodney made such an impression on you and your 14-yr-old -- a notoriously different age group to please. Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with him on our Landmark... More

For those of you who will think about this company and wonder 'do I book?', don't worry: just do it and book!! We are a family of four: 2 adults and 2 children aged 10 & 12yo. We took the Landmark Explorer (with Rodney) and the City of Dreams (with Danielle). The best money we spent in New York! Rodney... More

We had 10 of us on a 3 hour walking tour of Central Park (ages ranged from 16-80). Max was so entertaining and knowledgeable. We bombarded him with question after question, and he told stories in such an entertaining way. He knew old historical facts and details as well as any current event we threw at him. I would highly... More

We took the Village Sampler tour with Danielle. She was very knowledgeable and effective in showing us the historical and cultural side of the Chelsea, Warehouse District, and Greenwich Village areas. Her pride as a real "New Yorker" shined through and enriched the experience. The really great thing about the tour was the small size. As we crossed paths with... More

Hi Glenn, Thanks for joining Danielle on our Village Sampler tour. I'm thrilled you guys enjoyed it and appreciated our more "intimate" group size and style. We certainly don't "pack 'em in" like many other tour companies in NYC, and that's one of the things that sets us apart. More
