This tour was by far the best tour possible that our family could do in New York City. In one day, our tour guide Cliff packed the most memorable sites in one tour. Right off the bat, Cliff already felt like a part of the family, I even called him Uncle Cliff. Not only was he knowledgeable about every site,... More

Whether it was his amazing knowledge of 30... More

Having looked for a tour guide on the web and having found this website and Cliff, was the best thing in visiting New York. Four of us had a great time with Cliff and learned so much from his personal experience of living in New York and all the history and facts he has gathered. We all would recommend anyone... More

The best day we've ever had in New York! We've been to NYC a few times now (English tourists) & seen all the usual tourist stuff under our own steam - we wanted to visit areas your average tourist wouldn't normally visit with someone who knew the city inside out & after some research & direct contact with Cliff -...
