“Most informative and fun tour ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

This company is amazing. This was by far the best tour I've ever been on. Our guide allowed us to see everything we wanted to while making sure we didn't miss out on New York's finest treasures. If you want a real authentic New York experience with a passionate, funny and informative guide this is the probably the best company out there! If your looking for prime photo spots, the guides know exactly where to take you too! We had an amazing day in the big apple thanks to you guys!

“What a wonderful day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

On our first time out to New York we decided to hire a guide to show us around. What a great day! The guide was superb and showed us everything we wanted to see about New York. He knew everything about New York. Had a great day! Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the real New York!

“THE BEST OF NEW YORK ... IN ONE DAY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

One of my friends, in our party of 7 ladies, had arranged this tour several months before the actual trip, and now home, I have to say that this was undoubtedly the highlight of my 4 days in New York. Our tour guide, Cliff, and driver, Mo, were both fantastic. Cliff was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to initially ask all of us what we were keen to see, instead of informing us where he had planned to take us. It was such a fantastic day out, and a good laugh too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to anyone visiting New York for the first time, it really is worth every penny.

“Fantastic day tour of New York”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Our group of 7 hired a guide for one day to take us around New York, and we would all recommend Custom & Private New York Tours.
The guide was superb - took us where we wanted to go rather than a set tour. He knew everything there was to know about anything New York and was also great fun.
The vehicle we had was luxurious and the driver was also great. We couldn't believe how much we learned, which we would not have done if we had done the 'hop on hop off' bus guide.
All 7 of us are still talking about the tour - ourf best part of the holiday!
Not only did we get to see all the sites we wanted, we also got shown quirky little shops, deli's and buildings along the way. Thank you so much to this superb company for a top-notch day out - really cannot recommend highly enough!!!

“Wonderful tour in NYC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

As a group of 11 with different ages, Cliff did an amazing job of informing us of the history of the city with fun facts that we will remember. Time was allotted to walk around sights, sample foods, and have time for photo opportunities. Wonderful & worthwhile!
