A review as seen on the web

Fantastic Private NYC Tour with Jared G 5 stars

Aug 4, 2016

Our family of four (including two teens) had never set foot in New York prior to our recent nine hour layover. ..so we arranged a private tour that covered the highlights of the city. Well, the limited highlights you can see in 5ish hours.

.... communication throughout was fantastic and our tour guide was truly superb! He completely customized the agenda and made adjustments as we went along to be sure we could visit our preferred areas/sights. He was incredibly knowledgeable and just plain fun to hang out with for the day. Vacation time is truly precious and you'll be immensely gratified if you spend a portion of it with this tour company and, more specifically, Jared G.

American Museum of Natural History tour review

 The museum is HUGE and with my family we wanted to see the most on this tour without wasting time.

Jared, our guide, had wonderful historical facts about the museum and the displays. It was great not to have to stare at a map half the time and just follow his lead. We told him what we wanted to see and we were able to see it all and more!

NYC Magical Tour Moments, starring Shmuel!

New York Magical  Tour Moments are when, on neighborhood tours, people are conversant, welcoming and sharing hosts to my guests.

These moments most happen in Harlem, the Lower East Side, the World Trade Center, Greenwich Village, the East Village, and Brooklyn Heights.

If you have been on my Lower East Side tours, you may well have met Schmuel, the suit salesman of Orchard Street, #62 to be precise, International Men's Clothiers.

We walk by there and Shmuel schmoozes with us, then we are inside his deco era shop and he's fitting us into suits.  My tour risks derailment!

On Monday, me and my guests emerge in the Orthodox Jewish Hasidic South Side of Williamsburg, and who is the first person I see?  Schmuel!  

He told us about his 36 grandchildren, and handed out business cards.
