Jared was a totally brilliant tour guide. He communicated with us in advance of our trip and was helpful with any questions we asked prior to our visit. He met with us at our hotel and discussed a plan for our 6 hour walking tour so he could ensure that our most important attractions/places were covered in the tour. Jared certainly knows his history and could answer all of our questions. Having a 1-2-1 personal tour was great and Jared was really able to focus on our interests. Jared is a very engaging person and being a New Yorker really brings attractions and events to life. We can totally reccmmend Jared as a tour guide.

My teen daughter and I loved our 2 hours with Jared. He has vast knowledge about the city and delivers the information with joy for his city. He celebrates each mural, each statue, and each building decoration as they all contribute to city life.

I reached out to Jared one night via a short email with one line about us and our preferred date and time. By morning I had a long personalized reply sketching out some tour options along with pricing info. I honestly never looked at Jared's reviews (unlike me) because I could tell from his reply that he is a top quality guide, Our emails continued for another day as we refined the tour topics (social justice for my teen, Harlem history, culture and food for me). This personalization is unusual and easily justifies Jared's rate IMO.

Jared met us at our hotel at the ideal time for us. This helped fit the tour in our busy schedule. I highly recommend Jared for anyone looking to make the most of their time in NYC.

Second time touring with Jared...booked with him again after a great first outing in May 2021. Wonderful tour of the Northern portion of Central Park. He is professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and more than willing to customize the tour. It's well worth the cost of a tour that can be customized; start time, duration, itinerary, etc.

I can't think of a reason you'd be disappointed if you book your tour with Jared the NYC Tour Guide!

Jared is always a tremendous asset when traversing the riches of the city and all its many things to see and experience. He is the standard bearer of flexibility and Is always a font of information. Cannot recommend this tour guide any more than to say every time we come back to the city we always insist on Jared as our guide.

Jared was great. My GF and my granddaughter and myself had a perfect 8 hour tour with him. He is exceptionally knowledgeable about all the must
do tourist sites in NYC and his love of the city shows. He is cost conscious and we walked,
ubered and subwayed our way around town. He is very safety and health concerned about each person in the group. He was especially great with my 16 yr old gdaughter. Knows some quaint and interesting places to eat as well. I highly recommend him and think he was worth every penny. You can probably get cheaper tour guides but if you want the best then get Jared. Great tour guide and now a friend.

That was a wonderful day! What a delightful family. I can't believe you have a pet deer! It is high praise to get teenagers involved with a tour. You have an inquisitive and kind family. Please bring your family again. It means a lot that I provided good value. I know that vacations are expensive, have limited time, and a private tour is a luxury. Also, when the weather is extreme, it is important to keep checking in. Thank you for your business and thoughtful response, JWA. Best regards, Jared JaredtheNYCTourGuide

Jared is a very personable and articulate tour guide. We met at Metropolitan Museum of Art for a 3hr overview tour with an emphasis on Egypt. He worked as an intern at the museum for a period and has interesting tales from behind the scenes to tell as well as a tremendous knowledge of the museum collection! Jared was great in communicating via email & text so that I could make my tour preferences known. The tour ran long and Jared helped me catch the most direct bus back to midtown. Highly recommend!

It was a pleasure to customize an Egypt-forward tour for you because of your knowledge and passion. Then we did a quick survey of museum highlights for you to further explore on your own. I was happy that I was able to extend your tour, and that we timed it so you would make your next attraction on time. I hope to tour with you again, and maybe your family, too. Thank you for your patronage and sharing your thoughful recommendation with this community.

Our four hour walking tour of Lower Manhattan with Jared was fabulous. He kept all four of us engaged with the tour, as he covered the early history of the Native Americans, the Dutch, the Jews, the English, and American colonists/the Revolution. We also visited the Twin Towers Memorial, with Jared providing good context to what we saw all morning.

To boot, Jared recommended a great near-by pizza place for lunch when the tour ended.

My husband and I booked a private architectural tour of Manhattan in October. Jared did not disappoint. He showed us the city as we had never seen it before, through the eyes of an architect. Seeing the various building styles and hearing who created them and why was very exciting. My husband loves history, and Jared incorporated the historical significance behind the buildings he showed us. He also suggested we visit the NY public library to see the reading room and the current exhibition. We LOVED it! Jared gave us options on what we would like to see and tailored the tour to our liking. Jared, thank you for making our weekend trip a memorable one. We can’t wait to come again!

What a wonderful, heartfelt, thoughtful review! Let's tour again, please. I love sharing architecture and history with you two. Next time: Downtown! Let's get into the 19th Century! And a little 18th. Please bring your family. Thank you for your business and for sharing your positivity with this community.

Had a wonderful tour with Jared today. He really took the time to plan out our perfect day packed full of NYC history, interesting facts and stories of the melting pot that is the city and boroughs. He showed us some of the famous and popular NYC landmarks as well as the rare and interesting spots that are typically missed in the “traditional tour.” We enjoyed seeing street art and sculpture, architecture and neighborhoods that let us peek into the rich cultural diversity of the NYC area. Jared found special places for us to view that were unique and showed us the life blood of the city. We tried various street food and sweets. And again, we saw unforgettable art throughout the various Boroughs. It was a phenomenal day that my husband and I will never forget. We highly recommend Jared. He is very professional, knowledgeable and kind. He knew the best route to travel and knew the city and surrounding boroughs very well. Jared is the one to call when needing a private tour guide in New York City

What a wonderful day! With our skilled Driver, we explored iconic sights in Manhattan, as well as less traveled sights in Queens: to the point that we were the only tourists in several places like the Buddhist Temple, the Street Art, the South Asian Supermarket, and the Italian thin crust pizzeria since 1956. And some Brooklyn. Thank you for hiring me and sharing your experiences with this community. Please visit again for Harlem, the Bronx and more Queens. And again for Staten Island!

We were a group of 8, two families of adults and teenagers. Jared was very communicative before the tour to find out exactly what our interests were and then customized a tour to meet everyone's needs. He was engaging, considerate and very knowledgable and we had a great time exploring lower Manhattan with him. He was able to keep 5 teenage boys interested for four hours on a very hot day and was adaptable during the tour. Thanks Jared for a great day!

That means so much. It is wonderful to share the Financial District, Wall Street, Little Italy, and Greenwich Village with such kind, intelligent, and curious people. Thanks. Let's tour NYC more, please.
