We did a private walking tour with our family of 6 that was customized around what we hadn't seen before in NY and places our guide thought would be of interest to our group. Luke did an amazing job! He was personable, great fun to be with, full of energy, and had so many interesting tales to tell and places to show us. Even our son, who is a NYC resident, loved the tour and learned so much. Highly recommend this tour company. They could not have been more accommodating or responsive. Three hours was not nearly enough! Highlight of our NY getaway. Don't miss Real New York Tours!

I was on a girls trip with my teenage daughters in November and wanted a personal guide to show us the city. Luke called me to personalize the tour to our goals and family and made it such a memorable experience. He was so fun to hang out with, has vast knowledge and background and could place us in the history of the city. We had The Best Slice, we learned to ride the subway- nailed it, roamed through parks and some sites of the Underground Railroad, authors, statesmen, theatre, protests and art. Loved it!!

Luke did a fantastic job to elevate our virtual Christmas Team Event. He is passionate about the history of New York, has super interesting insights and has great humor. Booked his tour a second time (with a new team) and it was again great!

We are a German company located in Paderborn and booked the New York Christmas Tour as part of our digital Christmas Party (around 50 people). And what shall I say? It was a real highlight. Luke made us feel like we were really in New York and not only watching from a screen thousands of miles away. The stories he tells are interesting and funny and are visualized by additional photos he shares over the screen. Moreover, he wanted us to ask questions via chat and immediately responds to them. We got only positive feedback from our colleagues. Also, the communication before and after the event war really nice and fast. Keep it up!
