About
Private Tours In and Around NYC. Manhattan is usually best experienced by foot and by using public transportation, and the surrounding areas can be easily reached with a car. Whether you're interested in the major sights, getting a general sense of the city, or exploring specific neighborhoods, I'll be happy to create a customized route that will be enjoyable and rewarding.

My sister and I had a great time with Jari at the Whitney, highline, hearing about the history of the meatpacking district, and eating a burger at Bubby's. We really had a great and informative tour and we suggest Jari as a very thoughtful, resourceful and well prepared tour guide.

Me and my husband got a nice tip from our friend about New York For Everyone sightseeing trip. It was our first trip to New York and have to recommend New York For Everyone walking trip to everyone who is heading to New York City.
Our absolutely most friendly and service minded guide Jari picked us from our hotel and after a little chat we started our walking trip across New York. We saw beautiful places with nice stories which Jari told us about the places we were.
The trip included places like Greenwich Village, Central Park, Upper West Side etc.
And there was no any rush so we had time to wonder the gorgeous buildings, parks, enviroment and a spirit of New York city during this tour.

So in shortly the tour was the one of the best experiences in our visit to New York City.

Jari gave us a very nice walking tour in Village and I have to admit I got so much out of that afternoon. I've roamed around Village couple of times before just by myself but this time with very skilled and experienced guide I learned so much about the neighborhood, it's interesting history, buildings and other attractions. I can really recommend him: not only he impressed me with his knowledge but also with his great personality. He is very polite, easygoing and helpful. Definitely worth of five stars!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a kind review! My goal is always to combine every-day type information with some history and other points of interest so that my guests get a true sense of the city, and can feel like locals. I'm very happy that you enjoyed our day together! :-) Getting a positive review like this is the best reward for any tour guide, and I very much appreciate all the wonderful comments and the offer to recommend me to other travelers. All the best, Jari

We met Jari near Village, and he gave us very simple and good directions to find that place in a first place. Jari took us around places, told history and small details of places and buildings. We were sold. It was so nice to understand what has happened around places. Higly recommended Jari's service. He even helped us to find places, even he wasn't with us. Very good and talented person.

My wife and I had been in NYC recently and saw all the maojor sites. On this visit we wanted a more neighborhood view of the city and after checking TA for reviews, connected with Jari for a private tour. We emailed and spoke on the phone with Jari prior to our trip to make sure we were all in synch with what we wanted to see. At the scheduled time, Jari called and was outside our apartment waiting for us. We briefly discussed the objective for the day and started off. Jari was great at pointing out smaller landmarks/points of interest as we tour from neighborhood to neighborhood. The day was exactly what we wanted. Walking at our own pace (we covered about 10 miles), seeing points of interest not found or only briefly touched upon in most guidebooks and enjoying our listening to Jari's insights. Highly recommend.

Me and my family had a three-hour-tour on a Sunday in October, mostly in Village. It was the last day of our stay in New York City and for the first time ever, departure day was the best day of the vacation, thanks to Jari! He had planned a tour that was interesting both to adults and teenagers, including lots of historical facts, information about the city of New York and New Yorkers, details about pop and television culture etc. The pace of the walk was perfect, not too fast or too slow and we had a lot of time to ask questions and stop to take photos. We would warmly recommend NYforeveryone to everyone interested in New York!

Jari was our tour guide for two days and a we had a fantastic time! We visited Rockefeller Center, Upper West Side, Greenwich Village, Madison Square Park and many other places and and now feel like New York is our new home town. Thank you for the great experience!

Having lived in NYC for about a decade I can attest to the fact that Jari's walking tours are equally interesting to both tourists and local residents. He has tremendous wealth of knowledge about New York's history, culture and architecture that exploring with Jari will definitely add another meaningful layer to your memories of visiting this great city. And if you are a New Yorker, then learning of lesser known details and historical evidence on people who lived here before us and about various events that have shaped NYC will absolutely make you feel more connected to this great metropolis. I enjoyed learning so many interesting facts about people, events, buildings, streets, origins of toponyms, even including where to find the city's oldest elm tree that I had passed by so many times without having a slightest idea of!! Thank you, Jari!

Thank you so much for writing this wonderful review! I highly appreciate you taking the time to cover our tour with so much detail. We really had a fun day, and as often happens, I feel like I myself learned as much as you did. There's just so much fun information that is often so entertaining to learn about. Like the Hanging Elm you mentioned, or the three honorary US citizens.... It's all great stuff! Looking forward to seeing you next time around and thank you again!!! Jari

As other reviewers have noted, Jari had a good sense of what we were looking for, and was able to design the content and the pace of the tour according to our interests. Indeed, as Jari said, it was as much a conversation as a sightseeing tour and a history lesson. Myself having lived in NYC for 18 years, I might not have thought to do something like this, but a friend and I were looking for a novel way to spend a Sunday afternoon in the Village, and this turned out to be perhaps the most pleasant and fascinating "stay-cation" we have taken. We have already decided to treat ourselves and hire Jari later this autumn, for a tour of another one of NYC's many marvelous microcosms. Bravo, Jari, and thanks also for following up by email the next day with further anecdotes and historical details on the sites we visited."

Thank you for the kind words and all the encouragement! Reading your review makes me so happy and I'm glad that I was able to cover new territory in a neighborhood where you have, being a long-time resident, been many times before. The city really is a never-ending pool of fun and entertaining information. :-) This is much appreciated, thank you again! Jari

NYC has been Jari's home most of his life. He's been engaged on all levels of its economy and culture. But he's Finnish, and has lived in many other cities. That background may be why Jari "gets" the exact, unique lens through which each visitor sees the Big Apple. He adds so much more to what each client brings. Through exhaustive, intentional study he has an intimate acquaintance with the businesses and cultures that have arisen and continue to evolve here. He knows how they drive the region's geography, history, architecture, and politics. I've been a regular visitor to NYC and environs for over 60 years. Jari's choices for our walking tour found my my level of understanding, then instinctively exceed it. Jari managed to accomplish all this in a charming, affable and companionable manner. The pleasure of the experience was well worth the reasonable price. But beyond that, the experience was more useful than any tour I've ever had-- of anything. Jari followed up our visit with a detailed written summary, encouraging not only firmer memory but also further research.

Thank you very very much for this incredible review, Bob! I appreciate that took the time to write such detailed comments. I enjoyed our tour as well, and am so glad to hear that you found the points of interest we covered interesting. I'm endlessly fascinated by the stories and events that make up the history of this dynamic city, and feel that the pool of knowledge is so vast that no-one could ever master it. Looking forward to the next time. All the best, Jari
