      NYC Subways…WOW!
      Gary is amazing! He steeped us in the history of the subway/train system before we even set foot in the subway itself. His knowledge and visual aids on his tablet made for an engaging and enlightening tour. We will definitely be looking him up again for some of his other tours. There were just three of us on our tour so it felt extra personal and intimate. If you live in NYC or are visiting, don’t miss out on this fabulous subway tour with Gary!

      Very informative tour in a relaxed and enjoyable way
      Gary was a great tour guide, with lots of information. The use of the photos on his ipad added valuable context to what he was talking about. Our group of five ranged in ages 18-55 and he ensured everyone was engaged throughout, through jokes and TV/Movie location references. Highly recommend this tour

      The amazing NYC Subways!
      Gary was unscripted and his knowledge of the city and the subway system is amazing. I was not bored for a second. I recommend his tour highly and might do another with him soon.

      An unbelievable day in NYC
      What an amazing day! Gary met us at our hotel and the adventure began. Central Park, Grand central station, the financial district, 911 memorial, and battery park were some of spots we hit. His knowledge of NYC was unbelievable. We had a party of 8 with ages from 6 to 44. Gary is an absolute must for your next trip. We covered more and learned so much. Gary was so good with our kids. You know you chose the right guide when other guides along our trip told us how lucky we were to have Gary. Local New Yorkers were thanking Gary for learning about the history of the subway during the tour. Money well spent!!!

      Another Wonderful Tour with Gary!!!
      The Guided Walking Tour of the Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO was my second private tour with Gary. His tours are excellent! Gary is very personable and knowledgeable. It's hard to imagine going to NYC and not signing up for one of Gary's tours. It's a great value for the experience and will be a highlight of your trip!

      Excellent guide!
      Gary is an amazing tour guide. He led our group of 15 teens/moms all over Manhattan. He is knowledgeable, personable and flexible. He has an incredible wealth of knowledge of New York history, art and architecture. When he says he’s a “New York know it all,” he means it! Highly recommended!

      Best tour guide ever!!!
      Gary was our tour guide for a 5 day trip so we got in a lot of good quality Gary time. He’s funny, interesting, so knowledgeable. Gary helped us get everywhere we needed to go safely and kept us entertained in transit. Ask lots of questions because Gary’s got lots of great answers. Definitely a great tour guide!!!

      WE LOVE GARY!!!!!!!! 10/10 would recommend to anyone coming to visit NYC!
      We booked Gary for our whole trip! He met us at our hotel and gave us amazing tours around the whole city!! He added in must see bits our tour company didn’t include and taught us so much!! He is super nice and friendly and literally knows everything about New York! He his simply a wonderful guy and so easy going. We had a group of 15 adults and teens. He kept everyone’s interest and the kids loved him too! It’s hard to get 15-year-olds to get excited about history but Gary did it!! If we come back to NYC and need a tour I will request him again for sure. Definitely worth having him guide us all week.

      Great Tour!
      This tour was a great way to learn more about the NYC subway. It was a private tour with Gary. He was great and shared lots of interesting details. If you have an interest in the NYC subway and its history, I highly recommend this tour! I plan to book another tour with Gary on our next visit to the Big Apple!

      Excellent Walking Tour of the Brooklyn Bridge
      We scheduled a walking tour of the Brooklyn Bridge with Gary when my family was in town. It was an excellent tour and one of my family's highlights of the trip. My father is a history buff, and Gary was extremely generous in answering all of our questions about the history of the area.

      Not what I expected but did enjoy it
      Let me first get the bad out of the way. I traveled from Long Island. The tour states it starts at 10, we didn't get on the move until 10:15 because Tim the person who gathered us at the Starbucks location was talking to three guests instead of moving us along. This may not sound like a huge deal to others, but the LIRR runs on the hour on weekends, so had I know I would be waiting around I would have taken later train. I didnt think I would have enough time but had I know it wouldnt start on time, I could have bought myself an extra hour. Also the tag he had around his neck could have been larger. I asked so many people if they were there for the tour because I he didn't stick out. Sorry, but this is important to me so I had to mention it. Some people including myself didn't know you needed a metrocard. I happen to have one but others did not. PLEASE BRING A METROCARD WITH AT LEAST ONE FARE AND MAYBE ANOTHER TO GET BACK TO WHERE YOU NEED TO GET. So now the tour. We met with Gary, who knows his stuff about the subway. He was interesting and funny. I didn't expect to spend an hour standing in the subway station looking at pictures of the old railway system. Also, Gary you were great but you were talking a mile a minute. I thought this part needs improvement somehow. We lost four people during this first hour because it was a bit boring. The rest of the tour was interesting. Gary gave us some history of many stops that I've been to hundreds of time and never knew. The best part was seeing the underground station by City Hall that trains no longer stop at. The most part is that I didnt get to see it because I didn't hear Gary say lean up against the window and when I finally figured out why everyone was doing that, there wasn't any room for me. There were many more people on this tour than what it states the maximum are. Thankfully I visit NYC often and can do this on my own. I think that once we got passed the hour long history lesson in the beginning, the tour was something I would recommend if you are looking for something to do. I wouldn't say it was the best tour I have even seen but I did enjoy Gary and would take another of his tours.

    We had Gary guide us all around NYC Manhattan area. We had a group of 15 for 5 days, and he taught us so much. He was very flexible with what we wanted to see and do if it was nearby. He was very polite and funny and knew how to navigate all aspects from people, to parade traffic, and subway conductors !! Would highly recommend for ANYTHING in New York!!
