Private Guided Walking Tour of Central Park

I arranged for a private walking tour of Central Park for my friend and I for our last day in the city. This particular tour ... was money well spent. The guide, Jared, contacted me the day before to arrange a specific spot to start and end the tour. This made it very helpful to locate him and arrange a pick up when we were through. Jared was fantastic! Not only was he knowledgable on the history and beauty of Central Park, he had a fantastic way of telling the story of it. He was just a pleasure to listen to and walk this beautiful park with. It felt like I was talking to a good friend with a vast knowledge of New York City and its landmarks. Jared kept the pace going so we were sure to see the most important highlights of Central Park. The tour was 2.5 hours but I could have easily gone another hour. Jared was fantastic. I can't say enough good things about this particular guide!


Our tour guide Jared was very knowledgeable and willing to customize the tour to our wishes. He made for a very enjoyable and day at both museums [two tours: of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and a tour of the American Museum of Natural History AMNH].

From a Tour Operator personal Concierge

"...he was waiting to hear back from our clients from Finland.
We received feedback and our clients had a wonderful time and loved your services."

They are travel agents who stayed at a luxury hotel.

They got a private, custom tour with a driver of SoHo and the World Trade Center 9/11 Memorial, where Ground Zero was, and other Manhattan sights.

The Lovin' Spoonful in Greenwich Village

Some source material for Greenwich Village Rock Tours, and my John Lennon NYC Tour.
His and Yoko's first apartment was sublet from Joe Butler.  Ironically, John and Yoko moved to the Dakota to be safer.

Harlem tour yields fan email

Both ____ and I had a great time on the [Harlem] tour.  I really liked the
fact that you combined historical events with more current neighborhood issues and that you were so flexible in going with what we were looking for [architecture and social history].  It was a great day!

.... we look forward to booking another tour in the future.  ...

All the best and stay cool,

Holden Caufield's New York City Tour - Catcher in the Rye

I launched a Catcher in the Rye NYC Tour about Holden Caufield's anti-hero odyssey in his Manhattan. 

We had a great time!   We saw great things, experienced great literature, and we also experienced that a city that was timeless for the narrator is a city of constant, dramatic change, just as Holden was learning that life is.

Had we had more than four hours by foot, we could have experienced the inside of the Museum of Natural History and caught the Museum of the City of New York's special exhibit of New York in the 1940s photography by Stanley Kubrick, who was around Caufield's age in his era when the pictures were taken.  This exhibit will be up through 28th October 2018.

This is a good tour to hire a Driver for, since Holden was in town for three days on his adventures.  Even he took cabs.

From a guest 

Hey Jared Just to let you know we had the best time ever today. I knew it would be good but it was a zillion times better. I’ll be honest when I told [my 19-year old son] I’d hired a tour guide it was dreading it and didn’t want to do it. As I guessed he thought it was amazing too . We were in a restaurant for supper and he said. “I wish Jared was with us the whole holiday” ! Thank you so much
:)
