What a great way to see New York - more like a New Yorker! Our guide, Billy, had lived there 20 years and was able to show us around easily. We loved his stories and anecdotes best. Our favorite part was going to some of his favorite spots along with hitting the sites we wanted to see. He asked us at the beginning what we had already seen/done, and we worked around that. Absolutely recommend this tour for people who want to feel more integrated in the city versus just the bird’s eye view. You do walk a lot, so definitely make sure that you’re physically able and have comfortable shoes!!

This was the best tour hands-down! I felt as though we got our monies worth - plus some. This was our familes first time visiting NYC, as well as, hiring a private tour guide. I was a little anxious, as I didn’t know what to expect, but all of that was squashed upon meeting Ronald. He was friendly, attentive, and super knowledgeable about NYC. We felt as if we truly got to see everything and more and even places that were not listed on the itinerary, as he will customize the tour based on your interests. We were never bored or uncomfortable. Our 13 y/o daughter throughly enjoyed Ronald’s fun facts and historical references at all the sites. The tour lasted the perfect amount of time. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to say that they visited and seen what NYC has to offer!!!!

A brilliant day. Jen our guide was fun, knowledgeable and really friendly. She adapted the tour to suit us and we saw so much of Manhattan in the time we had, it was amazing. We were then able to go and revisit a number of places in the two other days we had in the city. I can’t speak highly enough of this tour, particular as it was our first time in nyc with three teenage kids, who all loved it too. Would highly recommend it.

The guide Billy was just great. He can speak on any subject we asked him - from plants to places to architecture. He was very interesting because he told stories along with the facts and knew when to stop. Great tour. Even the 14 year old thought it was great. Highly recommend.

My parents wanted to see all the sights of New York. They are Asian and elderly, so I was concerned for their ability to navigate and their overall safety.

I was so glad I went with Family in New York for a private tour! They loved their trip, and it is thanks to the two tour guides they had. I think that overall it is a great value and highly recommend them!

My husband and I recently visited NYC with our 15 yr old granddaughter. We had a Private 6-hr Subway Tour and a Private Night Tour with Family in New York. These tours were the highlight of our trip! It was like having a relative in NYC. Billy was our subway guide and went out of his way to make it special!! Scott was our night tour guide. They were both fabulous!! I cannot thank Family in New York enough for making our trip unforgettable! I highly recommend having both the Subway tour and the night tour. They give you a wonderful perspective of the city both during the day and at night.

Our guide Joel, Zero Boy, was and absolutely wonderful tour guide. He tailored the tour to our interests and enabled us to understand the NYC subway system along with our children. We were able to use the subway after our tour to go to Battery Park and take a trip on the Staten Island ferry. Joel gave us wonderful tips and advice that only a New Yorker would know.

I would highly recommend this tour! 10 out of 10!!! Thank you so much Joel! You made our visit to NYC amazing.

We booked this tour for our first day in New York. Tammi was great and took us to the places we wanted to see. She showed us how to use the subway and had lots of local knowledge. A great tour if you are short of time or want to get your New York bearings.

Dina, our tour guide, was awesome! She met our family at the hotel, and gave us a great tour of everything we wanted to see in the city! She helped guide us on the subway, and taught us how to go about getting to other places we were going during our stay. She gave us the inside scoop of a wonderful restaurant we would have never found on our own; a place that the locals would only know of in Chinatown! Scott, the owner, was very easy to get in touch with, and very personable and accommodating when the weather and flight mishaps messed up our arrival time to New York.

Scott was excellent as tour guide.
Engaging and informative.
We chose a day which was cold, frosty and then fairly heavy snow but managed to cover an extensive area on our 9 hour tour.
