New York Sightseeing Tours
and what you can expect
On our New York sightseeing tours, your guide will meet at your Manhattan hotel. You won't have to come tp us. We will come to you. We will meet at whatever time is best for you. Maybe, you like to sleep late. Maybe, you like to get up early. Maybe, your body is accustomed to another time zone. It is your vacation, your holiday. We will schedule your tours around you.
On our New York sightseeing tours, the first thing we do is put together with you an itinerary for the day. Then, we head out on a tour planned around your interests and your requests. You won’t be with a group of strangers on one of those cold impersonal tours of New York City, having a "one size fits all" itinerary and strict schedule with time limits. It will just be you, your New York City sightseeing guide and whoever comes to New York with you, and you don't have to worry about any tourist traps or tourist rip-offs along the way. Your New York City sightseeing guide will make sure of it.

Tours in New York City
Tours in New York City using public transit (subways and buses) are not for everyone, particularly for those with health issues; mobility challenges; and some senior citizens. Others may want to avoid New York's extremes of weather - heat and humidity in the summer; cold, snow and ice in the winter; or rain and wind in any season. Still others want to see New York up close and personal, but with a little bit of a buffer between them and the crowded city sidewalks. Our tours in New York City by mini-van are perfect for these guests. In addition to day trips from New York, we offer private driver-guided tours in New York City using mini-vans for transportation. These include: tours of Manhattan; tours of Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens; food tours and night tours. If you prefer the services of a separate driver, plus a New York City sightseeing guide, we can make these arrangements at a greatly reduced price. If you are considering tours in New York City, requiring a vehicle, please be sure to see the important note at the bottom of our New York layover tours page.
