I bought a photo tour for my friend who has lived in NYC for eight years. We had a wonderful time. J. Francois, our guide, asked us what style of photography we enjoyed the most and incorporated that into our tour. He took us to well-known landmarks, as well as though that were a bit off the beaten path. He... More

I had an amazing time with guide J. Francois. He was able to give a vantage point through the eyes of a New Yorker. J. Francois is able to capture the passion of the streets of NYC, to the delicate flowers, bridges and side trails of Central Park. Always ensuring you the BEST shot possible, that not everyone will have.... More

My husband and I enjoyed our Citifari Landmarks photo tour. Our guide, J. Francois, was enthusiastic, friendly, and knowledgable. With a group of only 10 of us, we were able to get personalized feedback and attention. Recommend this tour without hesitation.

I am so happy I found Citifari while in NYC. I was not able to plan this tour very far in advance and they managed to schedule a tour that worked with my schedule on extremely short notice. The photographer was very knowledgable and did a wonderful job critiquing and giving pointers. The time flew by, I wish I had... More

If you want a way to see New York City AND take fabulous photos AND learn about local history and amazing spots - Oh! - and get a photography lesson as well - BOOK A CITIFARI tour. This is special. I have taken the Central Park tour and the Landmarks tour and (today) the Soho tour. Yes: I recommend this.

We spent about 2 - 2 1/2 hours walking and she took pictures of the Empire State Building from various viewpoints as well as... More

I was unlucky to attend to this tour on a rainy night. Because of the rain we didn't have a lot of time in each spot to explore and take pictures from different angles. But I got ver good tips from it. Gildo is very funny and a great artist photographer. I was looking for general tips on how to... More

We had a really fun morning with Gildo. Not only does he have a great eye of a native NY photographer, he knows everything about Soho and its history. We really appreciated his advice and tips in taking great photographs, also his fun way of guiding us into some of the most exclusive spots or helping us capture the unique... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
