Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • A minimum of 2 people per booking is required
  • Frequently Asked Questions:
  • How will I get around the city?
  • Most of the tour will require a good deal of walking, however, because the tours are exclusive to your group, you can and will go at a pace that you are comfortable with. There may be occasions when you will need to go from one part of NYC to another (Times Square to the Brooklyn Bridge). The most efficient way to travel is by subway ($2.75 per person, per ride). If you prefer a cab this can be arranged (no more than 4 people to a cab). The cost will be at the expense of the group, usually about $10 - $15 from most points within Manhattan. If you do take a subway ride, this will be documented as part of the New York City experience.

My family were visiting NYC and we wanted to experience this awesome city with a guide who can also function as a photographer, since there's nothing more disappointing than those awful selfie/phone shots that don't capture the moment or landmark when you need it most....More

I don't remember the 66 per person, but we paid around 270 and it was worth every penny. We received hundreds of pictures and our guide was fantastic!
