This was our first visit to
New York! I had done a lot of research and choose NY Tours and wow what a morning, Jimmy our tour guide was probably the most knowledgable person I have ever met, he jammed so much info into our tour which was all so interesting.. I highly recommend this to anyone the only thing id say is wear comfortable walking shoes which you are told to do, some water and a couple of snacks just in case u get hungry!!!

Had the 6 hour tour with the wife and 5 others, cannot fault it in any way. Our guide Jimmy Napoli was great company, very knowledgeable of his home city and a bundle of laughs. Got to see parts of city we wouldn't have seen on our own,learnt the subway and heard some great facts and stories about this beautiful city. Do it on your first day I promise you will not regret it. P.S dont be afraid to have a drink with Jimmy after in the White Horse Tavern, you learn a whole lot more! Cheers Jimmy !

I've been to NYC many times, but this was the first time I did a walking tour there. I booked my family's tour based on the Trip Advisor reviews for this company. We did the Dozen Apples tour with Fabrice (tour guide). It was wonderful! Fabrice was very knowledgable of all things NY and passionate about his city. It was a lot of walking, but we also used the subway for transportation. Visited many places that you would normally not see or know about as a regular tourist. My family throughly enjoyed this tour and learned a lot about NYC. On a side note - Prior to doing this tour, I had several questions (such as how to do the Metro card, locations, etc). Each time I called, I spoke with Luke. He was always very helpful, pleasant, and patient with me in answering all of my questions. As a consumer, I appreciate the excellent customer service I received. Based on this and the great tour, I would highly recommend this company and using them for one of their tours.

My boyfriend and I did the Downtown tour on May 18th with Gregory and it was wonderful! Gregory was amazing! Knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour was mostly walking with a short ride on the subway (and a big thank you to Gregory for taking the time to explain the subway system to us...after that we had no problems getting anywhere we needed in Manhattan). We are so happy we did this tour as we learned so much about the history of the places we visited. There were 8 people in our group so we were all able to hear and see the sights very easily. Loved it! I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting New York.
