Private and Fully Customized Tour of New York

1. Private and Fully Customized Tour of New York

Want to customize the itinerary for your own private tour of New York? Staff and guides will help you pick and choose the sites, attractions, and neighborhoods to visit, recommending some that you may not be aware of. Choose a tour duration of 4, 6, or 8 hours on this special program priced for a group of up to 10 participants. After you make your booking, a tour specialist will contact you to create a unique itinerary for your tour, ensuring you see the sights and attractions that you want to see, not what the guide decides. An experienced guide will lead you through the Big Apple and provide colorful commentary, as well as some history and little know facts. Public transportation is the recommended way to experience the city like a true New Yorker. However, if you prefer traveling in a vehicle, that can be set that up when your individual itinerary is created. A foreign language guide can also be arranged.

We - my granddaughter and I - did this tour on April 20th, 2022 and are extremely enthusiastic. The team of bus driver and tour guide were great. She kept telling stories, but always informative and really interesting! You should have done this tour through the 4 areas of New York to get a better impression of the city.

Our tour guide was amazing, very informative, patient and took us to wonderful places. My first time in New York, she made my trip worth it. I highly recommend this tour.

This is worthwhile! It was our 6th visit to NYC; I wish we had done it earlier. We learned a great deal and broadened our view of New York.

Guillermo fue un excelente guía. Nos encantó el tour. Muy recomendado.

Maja (?) Was fabulous, very knowledgable and really knew her stuff.
