My wife and I were visiting from Chicago (we've been to NY several times now, but never "explored" the city like we wanted to) and went on this tour yesterday and to say that it was GREAT is truly an "understatement" (smile)! Our tour guide Fred...continued

Our tour guide, Fred, was fabulous. He custom-tailored our tour for the teenagers that were with us. They learned many new and interesting facts about NYC and all want to explore more. As a native New Yorker, I thought that I knew much about the...continued

AN EXCELLENT TOUR THAT'S WORTH THE FULL PRICE!

I've been to New York several times, but this was my ten-year-old nephew's first trip to New York and we had only a few days available. I decided that a tour would give him the best overview. I'm...continued

Fred is a limitless font of information and Vern was patient and friendly. The whole family, including 3 teenage boys, loved it. Know the whole itinerary before booking, though. Was surprised by Subway ride at the end.

It was a beautiful day so we started our trip at Central Park to Strawberry Fields. Got back in the van and headed to the UES to look at the mansions. Then went down to view the Flat Iron Building, headed to Chelsea Market for lunch and finished...continued

We took the August 1 tour with Fred and Vern. We had a wonderful day. Fred showed us parts of the city that you don't normally get to see. We loved the secret garden in Central Park. Fred made sure everyone got to see the things they were...continued

After getting over the surprise of travelling in a van rather than a tour bus we loved the tour. Good overview and all in all very entertaining. Would definitely recommend this one.

I agree with all the 5-star reviews. Fred was great! He really knows the city, was agreable to tailor the tour to our interests (since it happened to be only two of us), and he was very pleasant. I'd think it would be worth while even if you...continued
