By Far the best way to experience NYC during COVID. We didn't have to worry about the subway with our three year old. We had an amazing tour learning the different areas to come back and explore later. Our older two boys who are college age and west coasters left the experience thinking east coast living wouldn't be too bad! Our tour guide was excellent!! 10/10 would highly recommend!!!

From my first conversation with Cliff, his charming personality ensured every detail of our private tour would exceed my expectations and he delivered!! He provided insights and was able to customize our top iconic NYC highlights to meet the needs of my MIL’s limited walking ability, while providing key NYC sites for my children. He followed up directly after our tour ended to confirm he met our standard and was so kind as to send us some of his personal photos of the city as a family reminder of the memories created in NYC. Cliff is absolutely the best in the biz and I would highly recommend spending the time to utilize his team to max your time in the city safely during Covid. I look forward to utilizing him for next years trips!!!!

Annie made the NY trip FANTABULOUS for us and the grandkids. The boys (ages 10 & 12) cannot stop talking about it and they said that Annie didn't seem like a tour guide – she seemed like she was really our friend and I think we all felt that way. Annie was able to read those boys and knew when they needed breaks. They loved a break in Central Park.What kid leaves NY and raves about a park? They were in heaven climbing and jumping and finding turtles. They did say their other favorite thing was Top of the Rock. WE could have spent hours trying to figure out WHAT to see and how to get to the various sites but Custom & Private. Com did all the pre-planning with us (thanks Cliff!) and Annie executed the plan with perfection. WELL WORTH the price of the full day. We have told all of our friends who wonder what to do with their grandchildren about our great adventure with Cliff and Annie.

Dear Cliff, My husband I just wanted to thank you so very much for the wonderful tour around Manhattan that you took us on last Saturday.  The bus was excellent and the narrative that you provided was superb.  We were just overwhelmed by the wealth of information that you presented to our group.  You have an abundance of energy and it showed throughout our time together.  Also, we couldn't believe the beautiful set of prints that you gave us.  We were in such a hurry to catch the ferry that we never got a chance to thank you directly.Cliff, you gave us and our guests a very memorable trip to NYC that we'll be talking about for a long time.  We would highly recommend you to anyone who was looking for a customized and personally guided trip to your beautiful city. Sincerely, Chris W.
