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....

We took the 9 hour NYC tour and it proved to be one of the most wonderful vacation experiences we have ever had. Our tour guide, Dina, met us at our hotel and ran through our itinerary. We'd had a chance to visit a few of the places the afternoon prior so she quickly revised our agenda. Our first stop... More

We have been to New York many times, but this is our first visit since my husband had a stroke and needs a wheelchair. We worked with Scott to arrange a day tour, and we couldn't be happier. Our guide Rob Amell picked us up at a restaurant where we were meeting friends and took perfact care of us all... More

Since I was traveling by myself I wanted to make sure I had plenty of things to do. I came across this night tour in Viator. Since I had ventured out past Manhattan and Brooklyn I thought this tour would be a nice twist to my trip. In addition to going to DUMBO for the first time, which had gorgeous... More

My best friend and I have difficulty walking long periods of time and/or climbing stairs. This is what brought us to book a private tour. I read the reviews and sent a few emails to Scott before booking the trip. We are from a small town in Texas and of course we thought New York City was full of "bad"... More

Scott, our tour guide, met my wife, our three teenage kids, and me at the apartment we had rented in the East Village. First, he took us to a great little restaurant for breakfast that featured excellent authentic NY food. Then, it was off for a lesson on riding the subway. We rode up to Central Park and began our...

I took the family to NYC in December and wanted to use every minute to soak it all up. We had the walking tour on the Friday, which was the best way to spend the day seeing the major sites we wanted but also some we never would have found on our own without Dina's expertise of a local resident....
