From the moment I book this tour online, I received a fast response from the company. Sheldon email me and informed me that he would be our tour guide. We chose the 6 hour private tour. I can say that it was the best money spend on this trip. My wife, kids and I had a blast. I grew up in NY and after this tour, i knew more about the city of NY than I did while living there for 6 years as a young kid. My 9 year old daughter was amazed and putting things together she recently learned in school, to all the information Sheldon had to offer. Sheldon's vast knowledge of the city is what makes this tour worth every penny. We traveled in style, comfort, and the driver was very good which is needed in NYC. Sheldon took us to every spot we wanted to see and took us to some great eating spots in the city. I can't say enough about how good this tour was. My family and I spent another 4 days in the city after this tour and by fr this tour was the best part of our 5 day trip to NYC. If you are planning on visiting NYC, do not plan your trip without booking this tour. Sheldon, my family and I thank you for making our trip a memorable one.

Together with my wife and a couple of friends, we had the great pleasure of taking the private 5 hour tour led by Sheldon and his driver through New York City. From the moment we contacted him, Sheldon was very professional and inspired a confidence that we rarely experience. He arrive extremely punctual to pick us up at the hotel, in a very comfortable and ideal vehicle for the tour. His driver is super professional, friendly and charismatic at all times. Although it was not the first time we were in New York and we have taken other private tours, we have to admit that Sheldon surpassed by many pur previous experiences. His knowledge, passion, and personal experience in New York City made the tour from start to finish a valuable, interesting and educational one. We visited some of the main attractions of NYC, ending in DUMBO, where we learned many things that we did not know. His sense of humor is impeccable, without excesses and spontaneous. Everything he know about New York is incredible, and believe me we were surprised! Sheldon knows the city in all its facets such as food, culture, architecture, history, in short, a masterful command of the city for which he shows his love and passion. Our only regret was not choosing the six hour tour. Thank you Sheldon, you made our short trip to the Big Apple extremely worthwhile !!! Our perspective on New York changed greatly. We will definitely call you to learn more about NY with our children on our next trip.

BestNewYorkTours.com and Sheldon were amazing. We had limited time in New York City and we wanted to make the most of it with our 5 kids. We saw so much and learned so much. Sheldon made it fun and interesting for our kids and took away all the stress of touring/driving in a huge city. We could have never seen all we saw without Sheldon. This was money well spent that helped us create wonderful family memories that my kids still rave about.

Everything went great and amazing! We did the 4 (four) hour tour. It was all smooth sailing from start to finish throught out Manhattan and Jersey! Enjoyed all of the recommendations, stories and overall great attitude! Could not have been more perfect! Just let your guide know what type of scenery you want to experience and they will know exactly what you are looking for. Great scenery for pictures, video, cool hang outs and restaurants.
