It was possible to know many thinks about NY. We understand various aspects of NY. Initially the Tour was supposed to be for 4 hours but Mr. Fred was so excited with our questions that starts do explain many different aspects of NY born. Also it was very interesting to analyze the buildings around Wall Street.

Fred, our guide, did a exceptional job. We focused in the Lower Manhattan and the new World Trade Center. Fred, besides his upbeat mood and spirit, was very knowledgeable and was great in explaining very didactically the historial and curious facts about the region. I highly recommend the tour, and I highly recommend Fred.

We have done two very interesting tours with Fred. Both of them have focus on historical and contemporany facts that help us undersatnd NYC and the US. Fred has an incredible knowledge of the city, its history and politics. It is an outstanding program for New Yorkers and foreigners!

We recently once again visited NY with another couple who had not been in the " Big Apple " before. We had toured with NYSee before but knew that the best way for our friends to experience NY was to take this tour again. And once again Fred did not disappoint. Our friends loved the tour of NY and Fred's... More

I can't recommend Fred more highly. We went on a tour with two college students who go to NYU and four adults who all know Manhattan well. Fred customized the tour to get us to things we've missed or never notice. All of us loved the experience.

I came to New York with two friends who had never been. Fred met us and took us on a lovely tour. We walked, took the bus and the subway. His knowledge never fails to impress me as he shares the history of this great city and its many beautiful buildings. We visited Central Park and several of its gardens,... More

We've just returned from a personalised tour with Fred around various parts of the city. He arrived at our hotel exactly when he said he would and even remembered us from a tour four years ago. Straight away, he was telling us interesting facts about the area we were in and it was easy to ask him questions in return.... More

The journey to and tour of Dyker Heights could not have been more enjoyable! Our guide, Fred, was so knowledgeable and hugely entertaining. He fed us so many tidbits of unusual information in addition to the very interesting history of NYC. I've been on many tours and this one was, by far, the best!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
