We were first time travellers to New York & after reading reviews we booked Marc in for some photos on day 2 of our trip. It was just the 2 of us, so it was great to be able to get photos with both of us in them. In saying this, the tour is much more than just photos. Marc shows you how to use subways, and if your flexible, takes you to places you probably wouldn't have gone to which shows you parts of the real New York…I highly recommend Marc for some great photos of your trip. Tells you about places, things to do so make sure you listen and take note along the way. Thank you for the great pics and tips for our trip.

As first time visitors to New York City, we highly recommend doing this tour. Marc is very professional and informative with ideas for dining etc in this fun and amazing city. The tour is fast paced and we travelled on the subway, having photos taken from Central Park to Times Square and finishing in Brooklyn. We have some great photos and memories.

All the 5 star reviews of this tour are true!!! We had a wonderful time with Marc!! It met our every expectation!! We were traveling with our 10 y/o and our 6 y/o and they had a wonderful time on the tour as well. We got over 200 AMAZING pictures capturing us in NYC. Thank you Marc for excellent service, great pictures, and going above and beyond to provide us with an amazing experience!! When you spend the $$$ on this tour you can feel confident that it is worth every penny!! Thank you Marc for the recommendations on the restaurant (5 napkins was a hit with us all)!! Also, you helped us pick a great location to watch the marathon. We got to see my husband at mile 18 and mile 23!! You ROCK!!!!

We had only been in NYC a day so this was a great intro to the Big Apple.
Marc is a professional guy who was keen to photo shoot us as we wanted. His images and follow up were first class
Just a tip-don't carry a back pack or shoulder bag -they get in the way and can spoil the photos. Marc stresses this!Also, take a water bottle. Marc is a fast worker
Marc also demystified the workings of the tube which was greatly appreciated.

We have both been to NYC before but thought this tour would be a great way to get some photos of us together. Well not only did we get some great pics, but Marc also shared a number of great tips with regards to restaurants (TAO Restaurant was amazing, we went twice) and other things to see and do in NYC. In addition we asked Marc if we could change the schedule a little as there were a few places we wanted to have pics taken at and again Marc was more than accommodating. Overall would highly recommend.....
