We just spent an amazing day with Scott on our tour of New York. Being from across the country, it is truly difficult to know who to trust and what is best to do. We were picked up from our Cruise Ship (early) and given one of the best, in depth, comprehensive tours you could imagine in a very short... More

What a great decision. Booked via Viator as a Private Day Trip. As it was Winter and we had a family that wasn't interested in some things and more interested in other - Scott customised the day to suit us. happily making adjustments through the day. This resulted in a really great day with zero stress. we visited the villages,... More

We booked a private day tour for our family of five (including three teenagers) to see outside Manhattan. Scott arrived promptly, the car was really comfortable and our tour included so much more than we could have hoped. Brooklyn, Harlem, Queens, Bronx. Plenty of opportunity to be out of the car, a great soul food lunch in Queens and lots... More

Ever visit NYC and just seen parts of Manhatten ? We found Family in New York online and we are so very glad we did! Scott Piedmonte knows everything about NYC and he loves the city. We did a custom tour of the World Trade Center Memorial and Brooklyn in Scott's very clean minivan . We learned more about this... More

Today we had the pleasure of meeting Dina. She was an amazing tour guide and gave us an amazing day full of fun facts. We covered a very large area but she made it seem like a stroll in the park. Thank you to Scott for his easy communications, and Dina for being an amazing person.

He was incredibly knowledgable about the history of New York and was able to communicate in an energetic and accessible manner. He was also very patient when we were choosing places to eat and, furthermore, he helpfully provided many... More

We couldn't have been more pleased with our tour with Family in New York! Scott was waiting to pick us up as we walked out of the Port Authority Bus Terminal. We had taken the bus from the Stroudsburg PA station. Scott was so informative and allowed us to hop out and stop at any place we chose. He provided... More

I was visiting NYC with my sister and niece. As my sister uses a wheelchair we wanted a tour that would be tailor made. Family in New York was fantastic. Scott could not have been more helpful. He showed us all the 'usual' places as well as places like Brooklyn and Dumbo that we probably wouldn't have visited. We made... More

Scott, Thank you for pairing our family with Marcella for our 9 hour NYC tour by foot and subway. She met us at our hotel and made sure she knew what our interest were before heading out to cover the city and took us to all of the standard items on our list and many areas we would have missed....
