          Yes, you can see it all in one day.
          We chose this tour because a member of our group was 7 months pregnant and walking was not an option. Communication was excellent even before the day of the tour. On the day of the tour, Ron and Billy picked us up in front of our hotel. Both asked us what we wanted to see and explore. Once we had decided on a game plan, we were off. Well, as much as you can be in Manhattan traffic on a Saturday. Honestly, I much prefer walking tours, but if circumstances dictate the need for transportation - this is the way to go. We covered the city from central park to battery park. From the East river to the Hudson. If it was worth seeing, Ron and Billy got us there. The only negative to the day was that the traffic kept slowing us down. Ron and Billy secretly compensated for the traffic issues as the tour was a little longer than planned. The two made a great pair and while Billy was the guide that walked with us, Ron had an extreme amount of knowledge to share as he was getting us from point to point. The two were a great pair and genuinely care about your experience. As a matter of fact, our tour went a little long and toward the end they asked us about dinner. I told them that we had reservations at Carmine's but probably would not make it because of the delay. Billy attempted several calls to the restaurant to discuss our reservation and lateness. No one from Carmine's answered the phone, so Billy walked us into the restaurant to make sure we were seated. Amazing day with two amazing people.

          Wonderful tour!
          Absolutely fantastic experience! We learned so much from Scott about areas of New York City most tourists don't visit. It was a very enjoyable day all the way around. Still thinking about the yummy Italian pastries we bought along the way too! I highly recommend this and any of the tours this company offers!

          Our guide Scott was excellent. Worth every dime and some. He really knows the city and interesting facts and his food recommendations were spot on. He did such a great job. Thanks for making our trip Scott!

          Historic and fun!
          The tour was wonderful. Scott P. provided a very comfortable and knowledgeable experience and made the trip very efficient as we started from the farthest part from our hotel, Amish country, then came back to Philadelphia historic sights. Throughout the journey Scott provided great insight and conversation and I would highly recommend this tour.

          Wonderful Day Tour!
          Our day trip to the Hamptons was fantastic! We absolutely loved seeing the houses and little towns. Our driver was wonderful, very knowledgeable about the area, and accommodated all of our requests. I would highly recommend this tour.

          The Perfect Way to See NYC
          This tour was well worth the investment. Ronald was very knowledgeable and taught us so much about NY as we travelled around. He was accommodating, friendly and we were able to see so much in 6 hours. Highly Recommend!!!

          An absolutely wonderful tour. Scott was a brilliant guide and personalised our tour on the day based on what we enjoyed. His knowledge of the area was second to none. Thank you Scott for a great experience.

          Fantastic day out
          We had the most amazing day tour with Ronald covering much of Long Island. The Hamptons mansions were incredible as were the other towns and sights we visited. Nothing was too much trouble and we would thoroughly recommend this tour.

          An outstanding tour - tailored for you.
          This trip was outstanding. Scott was an absolute gentleman and keen to make the day as perfect and bespoke for you as possible, hence we substituted the vineyard tour for the opportunity to visit to US Open venues - Bethpage Black and Shinnecock Hills. Scott was only too happy to accommodate our wishes, and took the time to understand our preferences to assist with restaurants, coffee shops and scenery. He has a wealth of knowledge of the Hamptons and we saw more than we thought possible in a day. A fantastic trip.

          Perfect Way to Experience The Hamptons
          What a great tour! Scott's expertise and knowledge of the area (along with his friendly personality) made our tour of the Hamptons especially enjoyable. I highly recommend this type of trip to the Hamptons, particularly if you are dividing your vacay between there and the city. Scott took his time, answered all of our questions, and made us feel as though he knew each of us personally. We would totally do this tour again-of course only if we can have Scott! :)

          A simply perfect day to the City of Brotherly Love with Scott
          What a perfectly fantastic day trip to Philly from NYC with Scott!!! I highly recommend him and this very professional and well run company for all your travel experiences. I had messaged him over all the things we wanted to visit in Philly, some of them were not the norm, and yes, we saw every one of them. As a matter of fact, Scott did not stop until we really did see every single thing on the list I had made. This company was just perfect, from the quick responsiveness in answering all my questions before booking, the reliability in showing up in the early morning when he said he would at our hotel, to his safe driving in his most comfortable Toyota minivan, to his easy going personality, to his knowledge about all the sights we visited and his flexibly and kindness in making sure we really had the best day ever, I can’t say enough about how our expectations were more than met. Despite us only going to Philly for the day, we felt like we really got a great feel for the city and all it’s iconic places and sights!!! Thank you so much, Family in New York, and Scott for the best day tour ever!!! We are so appreciative of your time spent with us and you will be too if you take one of their tours.

          The most amazing day. The driver Scott was courteous knowledgeable and simply just nice. Our small group celebrated a friend’s birthday from shopping, touring and wineries we could not have asked for more.

        A brilliant day. Jen our guide was fun, knowledgeable and really friendly. She adapted the tour to suit us and we saw so much of Manhattan in the time we had, it was amazing. We were then able to go and revisit a number of places in the two other days we had in the city. I can’t speak highly enough of this tour, particular as it was our first time in nyc with three teenage kids, who all loved it too. Would highly recommend it.

        The guide Billy was just great. He can speak on any subject we asked him - from plants to places to architecture. He was very interesting because he told stories along with the facts and knew when to stop. Great tour. Even the 14 year old thought it was great. Highly recommend.

        My parents wanted to see all the sights of New York. They are Asian and elderly, so I was concerned for their ability to navigate and their overall safety.

        I was so glad I went with Family in New York for a private tour! They loved their trip, and it is thanks to the two tour guides they had. I think that overall it is a great value and highly recommend them!

        My husband and I recently visited NYC with our 15 yr old granddaughter. We had a Private 6-hr Subway Tour and a Private Night Tour with Family in New York. These tours were the highlight of our trip! It was like having a relative in NYC. Billy was our subway guide and went out of his way to make it special!! Scott was our night tour guide. They were both fabulous!! I cannot thank Family in New York enough for making our trip unforgettable! I highly recommend having both the Subway tour and the night tour. They give you a wonderful perspective of the city both during the day and at night.

        Our guide Joel, Zero Boy, was and absolutely wonderful tour guide. He tailored the tour to our interests and enabled us to understand the NYC subway system along with our children. We were able to use the subway after our tour to go to Battery Park and take a trip on the Staten Island ferry. Joel gave us wonderful tips and advice that only a New Yorker would know.

        I would highly recommend this tour! 10 out of 10!!! Thank you so much Joel! You made our visit to NYC amazing.

        Ronald communicated well up to the tour start. He was friendly and worked around our needs for the group size and start time. The tour itself was interesting for everyone. Some of us had been to NYC 50 times, some never. Everyone learned something new, and everyone had fun. The weather wasn’t great so we did the tour in a really comfortable and fancy van.

        Our family of five toured the city today with Billy. He was absolutely wonderful and customized our day to our interests. We love food and history and he made sure we had plenty of both. This is a great way to get acclimated to the city and make the most of your time. It is worth reiterating that this is a walking tour so plan on getting in your steps. Huge thanks to Billy and Ron for a great day!

        We booked this tour for our first day in New York. Tammi was great and took us to the places we wanted to see. She showed us how to use the subway and had lots of local knowledge. A great tour if you are short of time or want to get your New York bearings.

        Dina, our tour guide, was awesome! She met our family at the hotel, and gave us a great tour of everything we wanted to see in the city! She helped guide us on the subway, and taught us how to go about getting to other places we were going during our stay. She gave us the inside scoop of a wonderful restaurant we would have never found on our own; a place that the locals would only know of in Chinatown! Scott, the owner, was very easy to get in touch with, and very personable and accommodating when the weather and flight mishaps messed up our arrival time to New York.
