This was a great tour! Nathan was our tour guide and did a fantastic job. There were only three of us in my group, so he was able to tailor it more specifically to what we wanted to do and see. Highly recommend!

I'm coming for the first time in NY. We are an elderly couple (63+ and 61+) and my wife can't walk for more than 2/3 minutes. Can we have a private city tour?

Unfortunately that's not something we offer and honestly those are all things that can really be done on ones own. You are essentially then paying a guide to wait in lines with you which is a waste of time and money I feel... More
