For several weeks, I searched for a tour of NYC. Like you, I probably read hundreds of reviews on multiple sites. I was pretty confident that Real New York Tours 4529 five star reviews were indicative of a great experience. I looked at their website...More

My family of eight (four adults, two seniors & two children 9 & 7) visited NY just for one night/day as a stopover on our return home from Florida. I booked this private 6 hour driving tour as wanted to see as much as possible...More
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! What a wonderful Review!!
We toured New York in a private van. We suggested the places we wanted to see and Ian and Thea already had these on their list, with more. They were both friendly and knowledgable. We loved the day and would recommend this to anyone.
Thank you for the review and recommendation - we had a wonderful time showing you this great City!!
I was visiting NYC with my mother (76 years old), my aunt (60 years old) and younger cousin during the massive heatwave in July. We had planned to do the hop-on-hop-off tour to see most of the city, but I thought I would look up...More
We love being compared - positively! - to the hop-on-hop-off tour experience...."customized", "private", "comfortable", and "information we would not have received on another tour". And to top it all off: "It's honestly the best money I spent on the entire trip." Thank you for the...More
Thea and Ian showed us all the sights of New York from the major ones like Wall St and 5th Avenue to the small ones like the Friends building and the best bakery in NYC. Every drop off and pick up for the walking parts...More

What a wonderful New York experience we had with Thea and Ian. They know all the little secret spots that are not in the guide books. Their tour was very coordinated to maximize our day. Each sight would lead to the next, so it didn't...More
Yes, this is the advantage to being shown around by 'your friend who lives in town' - New York has so much more to offer than the iconic places (which we show you as well)! Thank you for taking the time to write your review...More
All the rave reviews are deserved. Thea and Iain picked us up at our hotel in the morning and the 6 hour Manhatten tour flew by all too quickly. Their genuine love for the city is contagious and their natural warmth and friendliness makes for...More
Wow! We didn't think there could be a better review written for us and then there's this one - thank you for the wonderful rave! Knowing that we reached everyone from a first time visitor to a seasoned one and everything in between (adults and...More
We have visited New York City several times (from Texas), but this was our first private van tour. I wish we had done this previously.. We learned/saw more in 6 hours than we have experienced during all of the other trips combined. To note the...More
We pride ourselves for being your 'friend in town' who is showing you around - it's wonderful to hear that this is true even for people who have visited New York many times! Thank you for this great compliment!!
Thoroughly recommended. This was an absolutely fantastic tour. Thea and Iain were just superb. Iain navigated the NYC traffic with ease in the meantime Thea provided us a wonderful commentary on the city. We were taken through a history of the uptown, downtown and midtown...More
Thank you for the fabulous recommendation!! Fantastic, wonderful, engrossing, engaging and fun are words we love to hear about our ability to provide an intimate overview of NYC. And we look forward to seeing you again soon!!
