We have a minimum of four hours for each tour and do our best to show you a maximum of famous sites and neighborhoods in the time which you choose to spend with us. All of our tours are made-to-measure, so no tours are exactly the same. We go where you want to go and show you what you want to see, at your own pace. If you are staying several days, we will happily design a unique customized itinerary to help make your New York experience truly memorable and book attraction tickets for you as needed.

All of our tours are offered with a luxury vehicle of your choice, driver, and licensed multilingual NYC tour guide for maximum flexibility and safety. The driver concentrates on the driving and the guide concentrates on you. Vehicles we provide include luxury sedan, SUV, minivan, limousine, minibus, or bus depending on the size of your group. We make stops along the way to walk, admire the view, and photograph New York's legendary landmarks. Walking and subway tours are also available. All tours start and end at the Manhattan address where you are staying unless specified otherwise.
