Overview

If you want something unique for yourself, someone special, or a corporate VIP. A tour that doesn't insult your intelligence or assume you or your guests are "One Size Fits All" types. The only place one size fits all is hugs and smiles; tours - not so much. New York offers an endless supply of things to see and do. Everyone who visits New York has a different "perfect tour" in mind. However, the majority will simply stand in line, hop on and get the same tour as millions of other folks visiting New York. We suggest you step out of line and talk to a NY Tour Monkey guide and together create a personalized private tour of our great city. This doesn't mean you have to do any or all of the planning. We've taken countless people out to see the sights and can suggest partial itineraries or some "must see" stops. You can also leave everything to us and be amazed at what New York has to offer. We have no pre-packaged tours. The majority of our tours are conducted in luxury SUVs (up to 5 guests) with a private chauffeur and a private, licensed tour guide. This is an important distinction because driving in New York and guiding people through New York are very different skills. One person can not divide their focus and provide a professional level experience for our clients. Please note, we can accommodate larger parties in suitable vehicles.
