Eine absolut tolle und empfehlenswerte Tour. Helga, gebürtig in Deutschland, aber seit vielen Jahren in den USA und New York zu Hause, hat uns pünktlich im Hotel abgeholt. Viele tolle Sehenswürdigkeiten, Plätze und Highlights der Stadt haben wir zusammen erkundet. Helga kannte sich bestens aus , machte Vorschläge und berücksichtigte in gleicher Weise unsere Wünsche und Anliegen. Sowohl für mich, der ich schon mehrfach in New York war, als auch für meine Familie ( zum ersten Mal in den USA ) , war es die perfekte Tour.

Perfect guide turned friend! :)

Konstantin, my guide, doesn't make it feel like a guided tour. It was really more of a friends casual hanging out :) He knows NYC very well, for someone who isn't a local. And was very patient with what I wanted to see and such.. Gave his opinions on things and places to go. Very knowledgeable. And I felt safe. (haha! for someone who is new to the city!) BEST GUIDE EXPERIENCE EVER!
