Absolutely wonderful tour. Marcie was our tour guide and met us at our hotel promptly at 9:15AM. We went out for breakfast to discuss our plans and ended up at Ellen's Stardust Diner which was a great choice since we had 16 and 12 yr old boys. We then proceeded everywhere in the city and she gave explanations of everything which was wonderful. She showed us how to work the subway system and even wrote down directions of what we needed to do when we took the subway on our own which was very beneficial since it made our first trip on the subway by ourselves successful. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone coming into the city esp. the first time because the are so helpful and knowledgeable about everything!! Also a big thanks to Scott for answering all my questions even before we left to come out to New York. I really appreciate the great customer service!! Thanks again to all of you esp. Marcie you were wonderful.

Booked family's in New York tours last year after reading about them on trip advisor .
It was our 25th wedding anniversary this year and we wanted to spend it in New York , this was our third trip so we wanted to do something different this time. So we booked the personal guid tour,pick up at the airport and drop off and shopping trip to Woodbury Common.
Personal Guid - we had Diana , what a font of knowledge , she pointed things out we would never have seen with out her, architecture , story's behind the architecture, how 911 affected her, little Italy , China Town, strawberry fields and so on.what a tour.
Than we had the shopping trip and that was so goooooood, no waiting for a bus ,pick up from your hotel and drop off back there when you are ready to go home.
All I can say is thank you Scott for all your help on making our silver anniversary a good one.
If you are reading this and you are going to New York and you want to make it special just book through these people.

The 9 hour tour we took of many of the main sights in NYC was incredible. I am in a power wheelchair and my sister does limited walking and our guide was very caring and helpful! It is definitely well worth the money we paid.

Our personal tour with Erica was a day to remember. She was friendly, courteous, caring and professional AND very knowledgable. It really did feel like spending the day with someone you know. Our tour was planned around us and what we wanted to see, with Erica spending time and chatting with all of us individually (family of 4). The whole experience was such a highlight, we would recommend this to everyone. Do it early in your stay but look after your feet - they WILL ache!!!

We had only 24 hours in NYC before a 3 week trip to Asia and chose Family in New York for a half day "highlight" tour. The best thing about Family in New York is it is a private tour and one fee for the whole family (we had 6 people). Erica, our guide met us promptly in our hotel lobby in the morning and did a great job of showing us the sites that we wanted to see and she was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the city. She even helped us stay out of the rain by using the subway and buses where we could. Great way to see the city!
