        We did a 4 hour walking tour with Ross. He did a great job of providing insight and history of the city. Very flexible in making modifications to the tour. Highly recommend Ross and this tour.

        My husband and I did a private tour with Michael Pellagatti as our guide. This was the first time my husband had been to NYC and he wanted to see the sights but from a local perspective. This was Michael’s first tour back after the pandemic and he said he was a but rusty but we didn’t find that at all. Michael did a great tour hitting the highlights and showing us a lot of areas and things we would never have seen in a larger tour or group. The company did a great job prior to the tour providing a questionnaire on what we wanted to see and how to Tailor the tour to us. Michael reached out days before the tour so we could adjust and set things up just how we wanted. Michaels knowledge of the city and history was great and we learned so much. Highly recommend Michael and the experience.

        Maurita was our guide and I have to say she was amazing. My son(17) and I were blown away by all the history we learned and we thought we knew a good bit…she was so kind and helped me plan out the rest of my stay so we could see as much as possible in our time. I highly recommend doing this private tour as soon as you get to the city because it helps you get acclimated and know what you want to see and how best to see it. Maurita was really good at showing us great was to save money too-which is always nice in a city as expensive as NYC. I’m 100% sure the tour paid for itself just from her helpful advice and ideas. I truly can’t say enough great things about her and the format of the tour itself. K&J

        Kamilla was a wonderful host. She showed us all these interesting places off the beaten track, in Brooklyn Heights, DUMBO and Williamsburg. It was such a treat! We strongly recommend this tour after you have seen Manhattan. Its a different world just across the river. We also discovered and alternative mode of transportation - the water tramway! Not to be missed! Overall - a great experience. Thank you, Kamilla!
